    Good for you. I don't put much faith in one 5 shot group at 50 yds though, that's just me. I usually grab a dozen or so flyers from the super market or video store, turn them over and paste a bull on the back, shoot a half dozen groups checking for...

    Sorry to hear that! The scum are probably already headed out of state with it. Just a couple days ago, man and woman stole a travel trailer out of the police impound in broad daylight, they are sitting in jail though.

    Having 222s, 223s and 22-250s the standard Hornet was all it needed to be, for me anyway. Yes I did try the K-Hornet but found no real increase in either accuracy or effective range over the standard Hornet with the loads I use. I found long ago...

    My choices are: 5.56mm, 300BO, 6.8SPC, and 450 Bushmaster. This demonstrates the versatility and utility of the AR platform.

    That's an interesting site but I do question some of their listed data. I realize mistakes can easily be made, especially typo's. As the 30-30 specifically the lack of the test range up front in the test conditions was a critical omission in my...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Alloy for 44 Mag in Cast Boolits
    I suggest getting some tin (either ordering pure tin or find some solder or pewter locally). Mix the linotype with lead at 35% lino and 65% lead. Then add 2% tin to that. That should give you a close alloy comparable to old COWWs of yester-year. ...

    Tom, how do you go about doing the tumble lube with JPW. I'd like to try that on a few of my cast loads too.

    Advil, That's great news. I picked mine up from Eric back in 2011 or 2012 just can't remember for sure. So far so good on mine still working but should it stop at least due to your efforts and generosity in sharing this I will not only be able to...

    Good looking boolits there Barr. I see your top punch is doing what mine use to do....ring the top of the boolit. I went to a little larger top punch that still sat square on the boolit but was made for a larger diameter boolit to get away from the...

    Jd9770, It's not a huge library of load data. I'm kind of a piker compared to a few member on this forum. I remember seeing one time someone's reload data that took up an entire wall from floor to ceiling. Must have been 20 or 30 times the size of...

    Good Idea.....only caveat I would suggest is to have a 14" twist and certainly not any faster twist than 12". Otherwise, with cast bullets, you lose accuracy with the 30-30 capacity that the additional gain in velocity would provide. If done just...

    Yes I have one on RBH and Ruger SSix, I like them. I'm not sure they are made any longer though, One Ragged Hole was the name. The link above may be the same company with a slight name change for the sight?

    Not criticizing any of your data, just would like to know for comparative analysis. Do you input any correction factor to offset the psi required to expand the cases? If not then does the instructions explain how that amount of psi is accounted...

    Yes sir, that's just what I did in 2010 or 11, got two Wolf barrels for my 19's. The factory bbls have never seen cast. I've been running these RCBS 115 RN. So far my Gen 2 likes them ok.

    Tru-dat, when you have a stack of these on the bench I always let someone fire a few if they desire. Amazing the look they have after the first round. 400 Jeffrey next to a ought six. :bigsmyl2:

    Well where it's a bit wet I like a stainless lever. And I think if you can find a Marlin XLR in 45-70 you have half the battle done. Low mount scope IF you want it scoped, not a light rifle, but not a very heavy one either. It does come with Ballard...

    I plan on keeping the Remington as is..but, The Husqvarna (which I think has the better steel ), is the one that is ripe for a rechambering. I started right off with the 50 Alaskan brass for the 12,7x44R because it can be used as is. Also,...
