    Very true sir. I have a hard time not mentioning the Bellm when the subject comes up for any Illinoisans that may not know about it. :wink: I've got a factory T/C Contender bbl in Max that I've been meaning to ream out 9x45 after reading...

    An extreme test for this is to put a bit of lube (a chunk the size of a boolit) on a paper towel, then set it on the dash of a closed up car on a sunny day. Look and feel if any oil migrates to the towel.

    The 9.3 X 82R was the longest. I used it to form the cases for my 9.3 X 75R Nimrod. I can't remember if there was a 5th but I believe you're correct. I'm not certain if the 9.3 X 57RD was the same as the X57R on the X72R case but it was also...

    That's quite a bit different and a bit older cartridge. 'Course, it's still being loaded today and works as good as it ever did. I have an old German single shot built on a Jones underlever in 9.3 x 62R which is based off the 9.3 X 72R and it's...

    If I were making a boolit lube to fit your parameters "I like that it is an easy formula to make, just a few common ingredients and relatively quick to make". I'd use 357Maximum's recipe for 666+1, AKA: Satan's lube. But it does get soft in high...

    I hope you don't get discouraged easily. When I first started casting, before I ordered a Lee bottom pour pot, I tried to cast a few with a Lee ladle and a old used 45 cal 2 cavity Lee mold. I didn't have any success, but I was doing this while...

    I suspect the issue could be that the RCBS boolit fits your Rifle's throat better than your NOE copy. You may or may not get the NOE to shoot as good as the RCBS in your rifle. Boolit molds can have slight variance from mold to mold, even from...
