    gwpercle replied to a thread How’s my flare ? in Cast Boolits
    Looks good to me , I prefer to have a little more flare so when a short case pops up it doesn't cause a problem. Don't you just hate having to stop and add some flare to a case in the middle of a good run ! Gary

    Typical UTube video.... all I can see is the back of your hand and you dropping boolits through a hole in the table. That's all I see....shoot it again from the other side . I don't like Utube video's any way .

    gwpercle replied to a thread Which Big Bore 94 ? in Leverguns
    I would look for a 375 Winchester . You said big bore....and .375 fills that bill nicely. I would prefer it to a 45-70 , I have shot 45-70's in some lever actions and they can, when loaded warm, detach a retina and bruise your shoulder. I...

    Maybe...only way to tell is load and shoot a few. I doubt your bore is only .351 but if close to .356 it might work. I bought a NOE 9mm mould, 124 grain TC design that drops right at .3575. I size them .357 for 9mm and run them through a .358...

    Polish the shaft(s) of the offenders with 400 grit wet or dry paper to slightly reduce diameters. They are a snug fit but a little polishing will reduce the diameter just enough to slide into place. Gary
