    For me, 100% under 100 yards, and target only to 50. So home made has a chance to compete with commercial. Especially if I put a modicum of effort into uniformity beyond batch mixing. I can see how things would be different for a BPCR shooter.

    Doesn't help over spans of time. What happens if you use all of one batch, how do you make sure the next batch is the same? if you have half of an existing batch mix, and you make more, and it is different, you will now dilute your old batch by the...

    hey guys, I want to verify my batch to batch uniformity without having to drive 30 minutes to the range to see my ball elevation over 5 shots. dixie sells a tester for $185 but I'm wondering if there is a cheaper mousetrap out there. Any good...

    as to power to make pucks. Maybe it is an ingredient issue, but I needed about 30-40% more powder to get the same POI compared to goex. And it can get DIRTY with that much powder! More important, is the accuracy was identical, even across a day...

    If the primary purpose is to test stability, then you're doing nothing more than an exhaustive load development. I'm sure that with so many variables under test, you will be able to settle on a great load, tumble or no. Sounds like alot of good time...

    For my 510 wells express I use the 22 round MTM box. I prefer boxes over slip-top cases, and DEMAND mechanical hinges (living hinges make me angry for non-throwaway stuff). I wish it was 25 rounds, or 50, but I digress. Nothing else fits right. ...

    As for the tumbler, check out this pic: That white plastic part (mine is black) cna swivel out, and will "ride" on the metal barrel top. That will keep it from grinding against the frame. It works well enough.

    I wouldn’t trust the results. I would though if you put an accellerometer on the muzzle and charted that data vs speed vs keyholing. If you are right, there will be a transition and then reliable keyhole region.

    The hypothesis I would submit is the following: You are using Miller Stability, which at the end of the day, is nothing more than a model. It might be a really, really good model for 5.56 nato and tell you exactly what is going ot happen before...

    Can't help with the A-frame, but didn't you move the plastic bumpers on the rotary tumbler out so the knob doesn't reach the frame? Flat packing, by the way (aka some-assembly required) is the reason we have stuff priced competitively these days....

    You should see my a frame and 20 ton ram. Such a waste. The weak link breaks. So I weld or replace metal, and then there is a new weak link to break. Makes me feel like my press is doing this: I should have done the H frame up front.

    Most other blunderbuss kits start at $900. $300 at least gets you most of a kit, and I'll bet there will be much less inlet work on the stock in that kit than in a more expensive kit. I hear you though. Barrels are not cheap. Would be nicer if...

    I’m looking at that blunderbuss as well. I think teh barrel could be replaced easy enough. What about the lock? Is there a flintlock out there that would fit the inlet?

    If I were smart and had $200 extra, I would get that 12 ton H-frame press and swap out for a 12 ton air actuated ram. I bet that would be a real winner right there for results and productivity.

    Lee 452 sizer. It's that easy. HARD lead and .460 diameter gets tough to size, but 458 hardball goes to 452 with ease. and soft .460 goes to .452 fairly easily as well. My go-to bullet for 460 is the ranchdog 460-425 with gas check. shoots...

    well, Easiest way is the Tall Target Test. Straightforward and used by long range shooters. Get a piece of cardboard more than 40" long and at least a foot wide. Use a fat sharpie and draw a crosshair for an aim point. give yourself a good 40...

    Absolutely. That's just physics. The better question is how much water is lost vs hanging out in open air for 60 minutes, or a day, or two weeks. You'd need a sartorius or similar and conduct a good study to find out if it's really worth it. ...

    public service announcement from Captain Obvious (aka in this case, Captain Stupid) If you buy and use the 6-ton Harbor Freight a-frame press, and swap out the 6 ton bottle jack with a 20 ton bottle jack, you will snap the A-frame like a twig. ...
