    The fact that he said No "sir", and the fact that he was thinking about you, tells us older generation guys(old farts) a lot about this young man and your influence in his upbringing. I vote to give him the money

    JonB, that Ruger #3 really lets you know it when you torch off a 405gr boolit in that little gun, doesn't it. I have a friend with one and I've seen his shoulder turn colors after 20 or so rounds, but he likes 'em pretty warm! That steel butt plate...

    I think he is referring to an extended hang fire. Waiting 10 seconds was what the military taught when I was in, usually because the chamber could be hot enough to cause a "cook off" due to long periods of fire. Hang fires are real and I have...

    Accurate was my first custom mold as well. Tom really makes a work of art. I bought a 4 cavity mold with 2 405A and 2 with 405D, one GC and one PB like you did and my rifle loves either one. I have driven the GC'd boolit to 2k fps with no lead and...

    I guess that means that you must also load 3 rounds in a revolver. Oh well, if you cant get it done in 3 shots you better get closer!

    murf205 replied to a thread Rounded bands ok? in Cast Boolits
    saalfelder, save about 10 of those with rounded bands and load them in your next session. Shoot them for accuracy against some of your best boolits and see if there is any difference. From my experience, I have shot some from my most accurate...

    Larry, I have some recently manufactured 2400 and it seems to burn cleaner that the Hercules 2400. My lot of the older stuff was pretty nasty with 44 mag loads. I used a 429421 with 16.6 grs and 22 grs (H2400) with 240gr Hornady's and Speer's. I...

    Man, that 250 gr H&G boolit has a serious crimp groove, I love it! After having crimp groove issues with a 300 gr 45 Lee mold with darn near NO crimp groove, I don't take that part for granted as much any more. All 3 of these boolits look like they...

    Yep, works for me too. My Marlin CB slugs .4575 and it loves .459 boolits (405gr Accurate Molds) either GC'd or PB boolits, powder coated or lubed with Carrnuba Red lube.

    DougGuy, is spot on, as usual, but don't forget to clean the cylinder throats really good before you start, even if you have been shooting jacketed in it. Scrub them well with a bronze or stiff fiber brush with powder solvent and clean with patches...

    Remember, it's easier to get forgiveness than it is to get permission! BTW, that email fetched me a new 3 cavity .452 290 gr RD mold. It showed up in my mailbox yesterday. I am in love. Just too good a deal to turn down.

    I wonder why 5744 is so much more expensive than the rest of Accurate's powders. Looks like they are gouging us for extra $'s. Is "cowboy and D060 as bulky as 5744?

    Scharf, are those S&W grips? They sure make that old wheel gun look sharp. Mine has the rubber finger groove grip and while it works like a charm, it AINT as spiffy as yours. Keep that one in the family for sure.

    I bought mine at a gun show from a guy who thought the hammer spur had been ground off. O offered him $300 and he took it. It looks like a new one with one of the smoothest DA triggers I ever felt. Shoots about anything you stick in it into very...

    Very true, but it can't be as bad as what I witnessed at a public range a few yrs ago. While I was unloading my van, two nit wits shot a 20 lb bottle of propane-@ 50 yds no less. I now hold a new world record for getting the hell outta there.

    William, I just couldn't stop at one so I ruined ,my one hole group with a few more but this is what my 686 usually does when I do my part. These are @ 40 yds IIRC. A 686 is worth the wait.

    OH yes, it is. A 50 gr bullet out of a 22-250 @ 3600fps will sling a lot more water and jug than a big slug @ 1200 fps. I've shot milk jugs full of water with every thing I own and fast and frangible is the most devastating. A friend and I shot milk...

    Amen to that. I had to put a coating of light machine oil(3 IN 1) on my pc'd boolits to get them through my Lyman but in the end I went with a Lee sizer. It (the Lee) came to me @.4515 instead of .452 but a split oak 3/8" dowel with some fine grit...
