    It's one of the main ingredients of 45/45/10. I have also used it to lube paper patched cast boolits. Check out this thread: http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?67654-Tumble-Lubing-Made-Easy-amp-Mess-Free

    Okay. I did not know that. I have a number of 44-1/2 actions/rifles but I have not owned a model 44 action. I "assumed" it was a falling block but I think you are saying the action of the M-44 design makes it something other than. Thank you for...

    My favorite jacketed load in the Garand is 46.5 IMR4064 with either a Hornady, or Sierra 168 gr HPBT Match bullet. My favorite cast boolit load is the Lyman 311299 with 34.5 gr of H4895. Both loads use a CCI 34 primer. I have laid in a lifetime...

    I've been using the regular CCI 400 SRP's for decades, never had a problem in any of my AR's or 30 Carbines.

    The first gun I bought, really bought from a gun store on my own without my Dad, was a Savage 110, plain jane birch stock, blind mag in 1988 from Murf's guns in Duncan, Oklahoma. Darn thing is very, very accurate with anything I handload for it and...

    A good 1907 pattern sling is nice to have. Get a spare firing pin, and extra extractor. Lay in a supply of enblock clips.

    Generally, the bigger case capacity of it is going to be a problem for getting good accuracy, I would think, but it is definitely worth a try. A 7mm Mag is an expensive thing to shoot, even if you handload and if you like the rifle, coming up with...

    I bought mine for $69.95 way back in the day. Despite having a horrible trigger, mine is a fantastic cast boolit shooter. I bought several molds specifically for it, and I size all my boolits to .314. The front sight is drift adjustable for windage...

    The Optima Elite I have in 7mm-08 is a good rifle, shoots cast pretty well. It is homely, but that stock is a nice design, seems comfortable shooting from a bench or any position.

    Hmmm... position sensitive. That is interesting. I will have to play with that a little and see. That would be easy to check in light accurate rifle loads.

    I have started trying Universal in place of Unique except for maximum loads, the same listed charge weights produce the same velocities, - except cleaner. I don't often load to the maximum anymore so I don't know how that compares. In the 1970's I...

    Had a very similar experience with them sending an old Contender back about a year ago. They did all the work free and even payed for the ride back and forth. Pretty happy with their customer support.

    I used to deer hunt on Fort Sill and they are everywhere. An armadillo can make more noise than 100 deer. Never felt a need to kill one, but considered it a few times as annoying as the noise was while on a tree stand. They are real easy to get...

    3031 is a great 30-30 powder, as are a lot of others such as 4895 and 748. My very BEST accuracy and top velocities with lower pressures have come with Leverevolution (LVR), and the Noe version of the 311041. This powder is the Cat's meow in the...

    I set my RCBS Uniflow to throw very slightly light, and then trickle up the rest. Done it like that forever. In the real world the amount of variation probably doesn't make much of a difference, but I try to keep things as consistent as possible.

    Some interesting questions here. Yes, the 100m Competition is off hand. But only 25% is shot at 100m. Chickens at 40m, Pigs at 50M, Turkeys at 75M and the Rams are 100m. Light loads you ask? Briefly, in my misspent twenties when I bought the...

    I still stop at sites when I see a crew re-roofing a house and ask. Oftentimes they'll just give me the boots that go around vent pipes and such which are just about pure in my experience.
