    OnHoPr replied to a thread 410 help in Casting for Shotguns
    Basically from what I have seen and as Ed's comments above along with an old now passed ole Kantucky boy that I hunted with a few decades ago, on any shotgun it is the BARREL that makes the difference when it comes down to it. Back 40 years ago I...

    Maybe you should get an extended cleaning jag for the ramrod, I have one on mine. Ah, that ain't nothin at least when you forget to put powder in being a newb at least you can take the breech plug out and push the boolit out from the back of the...

    Like I said all guns are different as well as shooters that is why I gave a general newb suggestions for a quick minute of deer group before the OH opener and possible range time constraints. I shoot a TC encore with the 1 in 28. After 2 full days...

    Alright, what is the intended purpose and is there a time line for getting it to shoot 2 or 3 MOA before the OH season starts. The gun will shoot just about everything. The PRB and the PP boolit may take a little time to dial in. Are you going to...

    First of all, the win 88 in 308 is decent deer medicine. One of those in 284 would be very interesting. How fast were you pushing the Lee 200 gr to have it mushroom all the way to the end of the shank? Frags must of gone somewhere, especially in a...

    I never did see the fascination for the quarter bore because of BC availability in bullets. I have known a few that used them in the 250 savage and 25-06, one was a hard wood hills & pine plantation hunter and the other was a field hunter,...

    Yea, I have noticed that a bit here and there. Sounds like if you wanted to do that big stamps referring to the pressure issue for the rifle and not to shoot factory ammo through it would be appropriate.

    Bravo and nice buck. Also, those are about the two best cals choices for antlered game there are. One when you need a little more range with trajectory on small to medium game and one for the range along with the bigger thumpum.

    As mentioned above that is the one I was using, just never got around to because I didn't acquire checks or get a end mill. I did get an end mill because then I could cut off all kinds of GC shanks and round or pointed noses of other boolits. One of...

    Are you using a gloved hand or a sprue mallet? If using a gloved hand be careful about twisting the mold or uneven pressure. If using the sprue mallet make sure your whacking at a right angle. I wonder what those would look like if they went through...

    I have an 835 with cantilever barrel as well. I have shot the RS12s, but needed to do more testing on them before a herniated a disc turned a little intrusive. I was testing the Lee 501 440 gr, but it needs a GC or the GC shank milled off before...

    Your are in the right ball parks, but it depends on if they have micro groove barrels or not. It matters if you are using a fast powder or slow powder as well and the fit of the boolit to the lead and bore.

    What sabots are you using? BPI Blue RS12s, What are your ideas, a nose pour with adjustable base core pin? Straight wall design with no lube grooves. Might help with the length to find what your twist and speeds your gun might like.
