    Lee's book gives a "factor" (VMD) for powder density based on how much 1 grain weighs cubic centimeters. The lower the figure the more dense the powder will be and thus will occupy less space with a given weight in a given cartridge. The VMD...

    Well that sucks, spend all that money and still have issues, I just got off the phone with Troy at Marbles, he said I needed to get the angle of the tang since they do not list these Swede rollers as part of their offering listed manufactures that...

    Foraging shot 45-70 load I use a fired R-P case but others work just as well. Deprime and reprime with standard LR (make doesn’t seem to matter) primer. Drop 10 gr of Unique over primer and then gently push a gr of Dacron down on top...

    I think I'm starting to lean to starboard on the Marbles solution, costly, but simple and effective. Thanks all.

    ShooterAZ replied to a thread GCA Garand video in Military Rifles
    If I heard right, they paid close to 5 million dollars to get 86,000 Garands back here? That doesn't include the time they still have to put into them. I have to cringe at the price they will asking for these! Not like the good ol' days for sure....

    Question Boz, In reading their description on the sight, it says that the 3" is too short for the Remington roller. I have a Swede Carl Gustav in the 8x58Rd, and I have a Remington and a Husquvarna in the 12.7x44R, so the 3" will work on the...

    I don't have any experience with 45 cal. round balls, but I have a 54 cal Lyman Deerstalker and it shoots .530 round balls quite well. It is a 1/48 twist. Hope this helps.

    If it is a lead smear, I heat up the mold to temp and then scrape the spot with the sharp edge of a boolit base. Comes right off.

    I used a small carriage bolt to "flare" it just a little bit. Slight tap with a mallet and they fit better.

    Nice job there Chev. I noticed at 65 I was bruising up quite a bit more than at 55 even though im not on any thinners. Just amazing how one can lose the density in the layering of skin tissue. One of these days im sure I'll be shooting everything...

    No doubt as a lot of cast bullets were used by military shooters. Earliest I read of Ideal's (the mould company name) #1 alloy was in Lt. Townsend Whelen's book Suggestions To Military Riflemen (1909) originally published in 1909.

    The 358W can give feeding problems in the SR Mauser actions (M93 - M95) as they do not have the correct case taper, same as the .308W. I had a heck of a time getting my Oviedo M93 to reliably feed .308Ws if 3 or more rounds were in the magazine. ...

    Wolfer, here is an update on my trimming activities. The Longer Foster trimmer showed up today, along with a #8 collet and a .505 pilot. Of course had to deal with mounting it so it could be used properly so I had a 5x18x3/4 piece of MDF from the...

    I'd run a couple of hundred jacketed bullets through it, that should smooth it out. You should be fine with cast after that.

    Wolfer, I didn't buy dies for my 8x58Rd either, I did fire form my hungarian brass neck size and had Lee make me a custom factory crimp so I can add a little neck tension without squeezing the you know what out of the boolit. My boolits out of the...

    Thanks Nut, I hadn't thought of that happening, well we'll see if that end up being the area of where a fit starts to occur, if so, then I'll decide if I just have them both reamed out to fifty seventy and be done with it, or maybe just have it...

    Wolfer, glad they are chambering. Mine shortened to 1.7255 still would not chamber. I just ordered another Foster trimmer to deal with my longer than standard cases so when it gets here I'll start the cut down on one 50 Alaskan case to see how short...
