    Well that sucks, spend all that money and still have issues, I just got off the phone with Troy at Marbles, he said I needed to get the angle of the tang since they do not list these Swede rollers as part of their offering listed manufactures that...

    I think I'm starting to lean to starboard on the Marbles solution, costly, but simple and effective. Thanks all.

    I have used 12 and 20 gauge. I have two 16 gauges for some reason but haven't used the 16 yet. They seem to work just fine for me, though I've mostly used them for round ball loads.

    ShooterAZ replied to a thread GCA Garand video in Military Rifles
    If I heard right, they paid close to 5 million dollars to get 86,000 Garands back here? That doesn't include the time they still have to put into them. I have to cringe at the price they will asking for these! Not like the good ol' days for sure....

    Question Boz, In reading their description on the sight, it says that the 3" is too short for the Remington roller. I have a Swede Carl Gustav in the 8x58Rd, and I have a Remington and a Husquvarna in the 12.7x44R, so the 3" will work on the...

    I don't have any experience with 45 cal. round balls, but I have a 54 cal Lyman Deerstalker and it shoots .530 round balls quite well. It is a 1/48 twist. Hope this helps.

    I think both Lyman and RCBS use 9/16 - 18 thread Buffalo arms offers just the guts for the expander body at any size you want. I would think if your bullet is 0.430" one to two thousands under is more then enough. Try a two diameter expander of...

    I would guess it is if you don't know how. There are a lot of ways to do something. In this case, slow or fast. Hard or easy. The funny thing about pan lubing methods is, fast and easy are friends.:drinks: Slow and hard are friends...

    If it is a lead smear, I heat up the mold to temp and then scrape the spot with the sharp edge of a boolit base. Comes right off.

    The Crossman brand can be hit and miss on good pellets even with in the same design, different lots and not always the same. I have had some very good tins of HP dome, no parting line and very accurate in the Air Arms TX-200. I only shoot 177 and...

    I'd run a couple of hundred jacketed bullets through it, that should smooth it out. You should be fine with cast after that.
