    barnabus, you are correct for concern and I agree with everything you have stated. Go to Buffalo Arms Co and they can provide any size you want with any size mouth flare. They are cheap and will screw into your current Lyman or RCBS die body...

    My .38-55 shot badly using the RCBS standard dies my Dad gave me. I was shooting the Lee bullet unsized and lubed with LLA. I bought a set of the cowboy dies with the bigger expander plug and the groups with the exact same bullets and charges...

    This is just my opinion; if you are regularly able to put all your shots into 1.25 MOA, especially at the longer distances, your bullet and alloy are doing well together. I am not sure a change into a harder alloy will get you anything. Certainly...

    So, how was the accuracy? As you know, that is a good measure. Also as pointed out, trying the harder alloy and comparing groups under fair conditions may tell the whole story. In my experience, the strength of 20-1 or its alloy hardness...

    Sounds like lots of fun times ahead. Ought to have that puppy dialed in just right by the time deer season arrives. Good luck. :-)

    Thanks for posting this, I have quite a bit of AA8700 and have used it with heavy jacketed loads in the 7mm Rem Mag. Need to try it in other stuff now.

    I did basically the same thing in response to the rimfire shortage, but mine is an old Savage 219 single shot. I never even contemplated shooting at 100 yards, I wanted a fox squirrel rifle and 25 yards is a realistic distance in my experience. ...

    Last Fall my deer load was one of my Dad's cast bullets which weighed about 330 grains and 30 grains of 5744. Shot clear through a good sized doe almost lengthwise from maybe 60 yards which is about what my normal range is or less. That load is...

    OK. I have several molds with flat noses for .30 calibers, so no need. I would like to hunt with the Ideal 311284 I shoot in some rifles, always considered casting some with soft noses, but maybe this would be better.

    That NOE clone of the RCBS bullet worked well for me with 40 grains of IMR 4320.

    I haven't loaded any in a while so would have to figure out OAL again. The load was 28 grains of IMR 4895 and a little tuft of Dacron on top of it. I was aiming for 1800 FPS, don't own a chronograph, so not sure. That bullet went through about...

    I think you have a typo. you wrote powder and maybe meant to type primer? You can substitute one primer for another loading BP and not have to start over for pressure reasons like you would with smokeless powder. Often a change in primers from a...

    CCI use to sell 9mm Largo. Send an email to them an see if they still have runs of it occasionally. Or have one of your LSG guys check with their distributors to see if you can special order it. Is it possible to run 38 super hand loads in that gun?

    No doubt those Core Lokts are good bullets, I've used a few myself, but for the past nine years, it's been cast or arrows for me and from here on out, anything 7mm or bigger is gonna use cast. I used cast in muzzle loaders for years before than,...

    Kev18, sorry to hear about the gun shop owner going brain dead on you. I just looked at GB and they only list two winchesters in the configuration you are desiring. One is a 1887 in ten gauge, the other is the model 1901 in ten gauge. The 1887 is...

    I bought one of these from Ranch Dog when he was still selling them, great bullet. I haven't used it in a .30-30, but it worked great in a .308.
