    I might be wrong in my assumption but I read it as the friend barreled the rifle, not made the barrel that was installed. If that was the case, a barrel like the GM 14 twist octagon barrel might have been the replacement. Regarding the slugged...

    Some are. You just have to look around. BTW - that match bullet has been bumped to its new nose shape, but it was cast on the mold pictured.

    I hear you. A lot of people feel this same way. Pan lubing can be the easiest, fastest, least messy way to lube, but, you have to know how. Powder coat does not work for BPCR. For pistol shooting, once setup to do a lot, it may be a good way...

    If you are new to using a nose pour, getting full complete sharp base full out is often the problem. You might have to make some small changes to the way you do things. With the Hoch for instance, getting the base to fill requires the base plate...

    posts 10 and 15 are on to it. No mess at all. (how can that be you wonder?!) BUT, like anything, (like casting) if you don't know how to do it, it will be a mess and working it out on your own takes some persistence. There is so much bad info on...

    I understand your point of view. However, if you are an NRA competitor, you know it is just the sanctioned NRA BPCR silhouette matches that have the 1896 rule and the additional rule about hammers. All other matches either allow them or if not, it...

    If you have a big bore that hurts, try stuffing it with trailboss. Lots more fun then. But.......back to your question, you could look at maybe a 50-140. I decided a few years ago that if my 9.3x74 was not sufficient, I would pull out the 450/400...

    I agree with you or at least something like a different chamber than 45-70. Without having the rifle and case in hand, it is really hard to guess. What does the case mouth measure? Does the bore or muzzle measure 45 cal or something else? A picture...

    That put a smile on my face! If you are like me, an hour much less two casting will produce a huge pile of rifle bullets! Which of course is a good thing! Those big 4 cavity Lyman rifle molds are a rare bird. If you have one in a bullet design...

    Right on AntiqueSledMan, I'm sure that is most likely the problem, these were all shooting black. Most likely the throat and rifling and leade are eroded and that was giving a better grip on the alloy than it would have had if it had been smoother....
