    ShooterAZ replied to a thread xlox in Boolit Lube !
    xlox and Lee alox are both good boolit lubes, however your boolit diameter is going to be the most important thing to avoid leading. Size to .358 for the 105 and .452 for the 45 and you should be OK. I use it with the Lee 105 and Lee 148 WC with...

    ..............I use the mops 99% of the time for oiling the bore after cleaning. The other 1% is used after shooting corrosive primed ammo (30-06, 8x57 & 7.62x54R) with a water/windex mix. ...........Buckshot

    ................You may go here on Cast Boolits: There is no way that ALL of the "Group Buy", or "Custom" designs are listed there. I think only 2 are listed for the 8mm, and...

    Well, they shot alright. Considering the heavy trigger and primitive sights. About 3" groups consistently at 50 yards using a less than stellar bench set up with no rear support. The only adjustment the sights have is being drifted left and...

    Either of those two look promising. If the Accurate flat nosed one would feed reliably it would be awesome. Iv'e had a few issues in the past with FN designs in my carbines. I primarily use the RCBS 30-115-SP, and the Lyman 311359. I can also HP...

    I may need to add some weight to this rifle, should be easy to do with the synthetic stock. No recoil pad on it, just a hard butt plate. Might need to get a slip on one.

    They all seem to eat real well around here, even bucks during the rut. I hunt public land, but the state manages it and allows people to farm it, not sure how that deal works, but the deer on there eat real well on milo and soybeans. I don't grill...

    Until just a few years ago, most of my deer kills were with muzzle loaders and I used that Lyman Plains bullet with some pretty heavy loads. Got the job done and I only ever recovered one bullet, but now older and smarter, I realize what I used was...

    Several years ago, I bought a little CVA in .54 from a young man who had it advertised locally real cheap. The gun looks unfired, very plain, small and light, has a synthetic stock, not a nice rifle, but seems serviceable. I haven't in a few...

    A Roll crimp device spins. MEC loaders do not incorporate any spinning device for the purpose of creating a roll crimp on a shotshell.

    MOA replied to a thread Load Data in Casting for Shotguns
    Gp, went through my library and have a older copy of a Hodgdon 4th printing of Basic Loading Data. I'll scan and send you a PM with the file. Most of the powders are obsolete, but the wad column information is helpful I think.

    The big downside to enlarged sprue holes is when you go to cut it the greater amount of lead now created by the enlargement will be harder and more force needed. I had to open up two Lee .515 molds and now can only cut the sprue with a protected...

    I have the LEE, The Lyman HB bullet and the T/C Maxi-ball. Molds for these are available. I have taken game with both the Lyman and T/C Maxi and both have shot well to 100yds and more. I tend to shoot lighter loads like 75, 80, 85grains of real...

    I have been using this one in my Lyman 54Cal Deerstalker. It is a real game getter. Sorry, no experience with Lee reals. Hornady make a 54 caliber "Great Plains" 425 grain conical, and these performed so well in my 54 that it inspired me to get my...

    Utah is beautiful. Moved from just outside the 285 perimeter south on hwy 85 toward Riverdale, Ga. Here's a image outside of Monticello while on my elk hunt. I ended up with a spike too.
