    This old Tony. That is funny. Some years ago, his youtube was on my play list and I had viewed this one on springs too. When you wrote post 31 he came to mind. Then it turned out to be the one you saw too. Some of the things he does are out of my...

    Had so much fun casting indoors the last couple of days I decided I would cast up some 45 Colt 250 gr for the first time from a newly acquired Lyman mold #454190 from forum member GoodAlloy, and I had so much fun with the pointy boolits the other...

    My Bulldog is a handful with regular .44 Special loads, I imagine a .41 Magnum is painful. They are good little guns, at least mine always has been.

    Well I can tell you that the cartridge is good for Elk right along with deer and I would not worry about it on bear other than the bigger bears of Alaska. Here's a small elk from the La Sal mountains of Utah that went down with one well placed shot...

    I use a very similar load of two grains of Bullseye and the NOE 45 grain WFN in my Hornet for squirrels. Good to hear such loads work well in the Bee as well.

    Well that's great to hear. I knew when I bought this model 375 marlin it was an oddie, so whenever I saw ammo for it back in 1981 and onward I bought it. Especially if it was Winchester brand in the factory 250 loading. Nice to have a alternative if...

    That's awesome, mine is still in the box, I did not realize that after hooking it up it had to be programed too. Well, as soon as we get settled in I will get it set up and start to use it, I'm sure it will help.

    I'm just beginning to delve in to the .218 Bee. Eventually, I'm sure this rifle will become a cast squirrel rifle like my Hornets, but for now, I want to mess with some jacketed bullets for a while.

    Well I got my 44 gas checks in the mail yesterday so today it was time to make up the Nasties. Only issue that slowed me down for about 15 minutes was how I was going to seat these pointies. No real seater with this sharp of an angle and of...

    I ran a mixed lot today. Started out with the Lee 8mm Maximum for the Swede roller, and then went on to some 450 and 500 grain 50 cal for the other Swede rollers. After all wouldn't want them to feel left out. All in all about 35 pounds worth. ...

    Great info BlackpowderSweden, I just got off the phone with Lee Precision, if you want this mold it will cost you $250 plus for one mold, and if you want two, another 250.00 Smackeroos. Can't say I'm impress with Lee Precision. :-(

    Just love the 16 gauge. Here's a late day bump. Someone should grab this, these kind of parts are real hard to get.

    This is my Wal Mart special, got it for less than ten bucks, works great. Been using same pieces for about 5 years now, holding up good. I dry my pins in the oven at night, turn it up to 250 and put the pins in and close the door, and turn oven off....

    Dusty Ed, I hope it wasn't too hard. I bought one from them years ago, back in 12, just haven't gotten around to installing it yet, how hard was it to get it wired up and didn't you have to like weld some kind of nut or something to the pot to...

    Koger, you need IMHO one or the other, or some 50-90 brass. It just depends on how many steps you want to have in the process from start to finish. The 50 anything from Winchester is going to mean you have to reduce the size of the base, the 348 Win...
