    If you have a cartridges of the world publication you can start by looking at BP cartridges with like rim and base measurements. That's a good step regardless of what caliber your dealing with. My guess the 348 Winchester or the 50 Alaskan is where...

    Jim try screwing the die in another 1/4 turn, that should give you a cam over on the press handle and may be all that is needed to bump the shoulder back another thou. It sounds like you may have a nice min headspace chamber, if it is concentric...

    I would contact Jeff Bartlet or Pat Mc Donald and ask if they ever sold SMP226 powder, these guys are the gurus of non-cannister powders, and being such they can give you an idea of burn speed, especially if you have a lot number. I have had Jeff...

    I never thought it was a good choice for reduced loads, too heavily deterred for good ignition. There was a guy that was shooting CBSA matches with it in a 32-40 single shot if my memory serves, doing quite well it seemed, went by Frankeore or some...

    444ttd Not able to post much til tonight or tomorrow. I've killed 7 black tail deer with the M1 carbine and numerous 2 legged DG in the late SE Asian war games. The 30 carbine with 110 SP/HPs and 100 gr HJs did just fine out to 150 +/- yards. ...

    Google/Wiki just defines canister as a container, think it actually said metal. I answered you the best way I could, I quoted two of the oldest authorities on reloading, Speer and Hodgdons, where I learned from plus others. I respected Felix's...

    You're probably going to get a lot of nay-sayers on the 30 Carbine for deer. My take on it is that will be plenty effective out to 50 yds. or maybe a little further. Cup and core soft point should expand pretty well inside of that range. I used to...

    I think what we are seeing here is Google/Wiki definitions being applied to handloading..... What I posted above are quotes from Hodgdon and Speer, if anyone would know they should.... Hodgdon's "Glossary of Terms Relating to Powder" pg 526 #25 ...

    I like Jeff Bartlet, smart man selling this powder in 8 pound jugs...;-) This powder has not been released as a canister powder. Loads can be worked up using H-870 or AA-8700 data, less 10%. Burning rate seems to be ...

    John it used to always be refered as "cannister grade" powder, and always spelled with TWO N's. I guess I'm still stuck in the 60's, what next Cast Boolits Forum call HEADS, TIPS, POINTS FORUM:veryconfu I would like to hear what Felix has to say,...

    Prague 1901 You are correct. Slower burning powders give a slower rise to pressure which means a kinder, gentler effect on the cast bullet during acceleration. This is/was well proven with a multitude of pressure measurements taken during many...
