    ShooterAZ replied to a thread water in the mold in Cast Boolits
    I'll bet that got your attention, I don't like hissing or popping sounds when I'm casting. I once had a big moth do a belly flop in my RCBS pot. He sizzled and popped and the smoke smelled something awful. I got away from there quickly, as I had no...

    Not to get off topic but-- How hard/fast are you pushing these that you need gas checks or are you working up a softer hunting load?

    The 16" twist in a 26" (24" minimum) length barrel will give you all you ask for and then some.

    Bruce No, I have not tried the heavier bullets I cast myself yet. I've had a MP 227-65 for some time but haven't gotten around to it yet.....too many other HV irons in the fire. A couple years back leadman gave me some of his heat treated...

    The Lyman 225415 along with the RCBS and Lee clones suffer from to little bearing surface and too much unsupported node. However, in my 12" twist AR, M70 and M700V that bullet design shoots 2 moa or less running 2250 fps at 100 yards. In my 9"...

    I'd make sure the barrel is clean before starting each load group on the ladder test. RCBS recommended straight linotype for their 223 molds. Pc does help but is not a cure-all. You could try putting in a larger/or adjustable gas block to improve...

    If there is such a thing as a "General Rifle" design, my opinion would be the Louverin mod style. The tapered design will fit most throats quite well, and therefore can be made to shoot accurately. Mine are all FN though. There's a "fat 30" version...
