    A reliable 12 ounce pull that breaks like glass would be wonderful for the rifle in question. My others may keep the factory springs. Thanks for the input.

    I really don't have much of an opinion of handgun stuff. However, based on my overall rifle experience, this statement highlighted above really stands out! I would offer vigorously that many examples show pressure and velocity are independent. I...

    Question - I don't have anything to add but just wondering... Are these jack systems to be used in place of or to assist the rack and crank lift large and heavy drill tables would have? Maybe they were an option and not all were ordered with...

    Kwinsett. I faced the same issue with my 12.7 also. I already had a Drexel tool from a prior Xmas gift and my local HD carried the drill press frame to hold it so I just oriented the dremel vertically with the thin abrasive disc. I used a 3/4"...

    Smithframe, having a master caster doesn't have to take the fun out of casting you own. Magma make a pot base you can order that will fit the pot part of the MC. Two bolts is all you need to remove to swap the pot from one base to the other. I got...

    Went ahead and ordered a couple of the ones the Ebay seller had, figured for nine bucks and free shipping it wasn't worth my time to rummage through hardware store drawers. I'm kind of more concerned about it resulting in too light a trigger pull,...

    So I bought a Winchester model 70 Heavy Varmint (push feed) rifle in .308 a while back for just cast bullet target shooting, figured .30 caliber cast paper punching was most of what I was doing anyway, might as well have a dedicated rifle. The...

    Buggybuilder just posted an ad with a bunch of bullets and a mold for the .32-40, same bullets work well in the .32 Special in my experience. If you haven't already got dies, I have a good set of old Hollywood dies that work fine.

    JonB you got me wondering if my memory is slipping. And so this morning, with coffee in hand, I went to the shop to weigh a few Bator's. Short and stubby, cast in Lino, lubed with check seated, 53.2 grains and almost nothing to average. One after...

    The Bator is about 55 grains also and if you watch Ebay they come up. Every cast bullet Hornet rifleman should have one. I don't have any great trips on bullets other than the standard known good bullets like 225438. The one item worth passing...

    Ok Mozz, here is what I did, maybe it will give you a few ideas. First off I wanted a sturdy bench, but since I didn't have access to a lot of tools I went the easy route since I was renting a place and really could not start putting a permanent...

    I use a NOE 45 grain WFN design and I ordered mine with all plain bases. You can have the same bullet with checks and even hollow pointed if you so desire. That bullet in front of two grains of Bullseye in my Savage 219 is a Fox squirrel killing...

    Perhaps, but I will say I have made this observation; there are two cartridges that are very attractive to guys who want to push the envelope and try to make it something it is not, the .45-70 is the main one and the .22 Hornet is a close second. ...

    I'd kind of like to find a 340 with a bad barrel and turn it into a bolt action .38-55.

    Koger, yes the brass and the cleaning is no doubt the biggest down side to black for most. If I didn't own a wet/pin/SS tumbler I might do less myself. Here's some of my days loading. Lee's .515 dia. 450 & 500 grain boolits being cast. ...
