    Kroger. These are item numbers for rolling blocks from Simpsonltd.com where I have purchased a number of long guns from. These are classified as antiques so no 4473 paperwork and can be shipped directly to your door. Check them over, call them and...

    Mk, yes, I think I will try to fireform in the 410 first to open it as much as possible to avoid splitting. Having the extra buttons will be a plus if I need them and if not no big deal. Sometimes life is just one big Catch 22.

    Koger, You should always slug your barrel and if you can get a casting of your chamber, the chamber will help give you an idea of the shape and condition of the leade and the start of the rifling at the beginning of the bore. Midsouth sells a...

    Okay. It is good to know my memory is not completely gone. I think the main line GOEX is good for general use in ML and plinking with cartridge guns.

    MOA replied to a thread Casting in cold weather in Cast Boolits
    Too hot to cast here in the summer. And, too hot to cast back in Arizona too, unless your in Northern Arizona. I prefer casting when it's about 65 degrees. I've even set up the casting machine on top of a covered kitchen stove so I could get some...

    Robert, I think you are correct in reference to opening up with some expander buttons. As to the expense of the dies, those are dies I already own for reloading those calibers. I have close to thirty die sets in different calibers since I load for...

    Great idea. I just fireformed some 410 shells out of 9.3x74R earlier this year. Rim dimensions are within where it should chamber. I'll give it a try. I just sent off a letter to JES Reboring this morning. It would be sweet if I only have to send...

    I have to agree with freedom475. The 921 is the model we got about 7 years ago and it will do whatever you need to do. Buy one and be done. Top grade material and design, and you will love the quality too.

    The original 1887 both 10 and 12 ga were black powder only. The next eveloution of the lever shotgun was the 1901 model in 10 ga only. It was made to handle the early smokeless powders. Winchester did not produce a 12 ga model 1901, reasoning was...

    One shoe does not fit all feet and one primer does not suite all powders in the Hornet. Rem 7-1/2's made a so-so load shine for me. You have to try them. It's fun. Get out and shoot.

    djryan13, so true on the sprue. I never cut the second slot for it on this table. I will on the next one or like you hang it over the edge. The sprue seem to have a mind of their own at times.

    Smithframe, having a master caster doesn't have to take the fun out of casting you own. Magma make a pot base you can order that will fit the pot part of the MC. Two bolts is all you need to remove to swap the pot from one base to the other. I got...

    The Bator is about 55 grains also and if you watch Ebay they come up. Every cast bullet Hornet rifleman should have one. I don't have any great trips on bullets other than the standard known good bullets like 225438. The one item worth passing...
