    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...

    Nice job there Chev. I noticed at 65 I was bruising up quite a bit more than at 55 even though im not on any thinners. Just amazing how one can lose the density in the layering of skin tissue. One of these days im sure I'll be shooting everything...

    Wolfer, here is an update on my trimming activities. The Longer Foster trimmer showed up today, along with a #8 collet and a .505 pilot. Of course had to deal with mounting it so it could be used properly so I had a 5x18x3/4 piece of MDF from the...

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

    Wolfer, I didn't buy dies for my 8x58Rd either, I did fire form my hungarian brass neck size and had Lee make me a custom factory crimp so I can add a little neck tension without squeezing the you know what out of the boolit. My boolits out of the...

    Thanks Nut, I hadn't thought of that happening, well we'll see if that end up being the area of where a fit starts to occur, if so, then I'll decide if I just have them both reamed out to fifty seventy and be done with it, or maybe just have it...

    Wolfer, glad they are chambering. Mine shortened to 1.7255 still would not chamber. I just ordered another Foster trimmer to deal with my longer than standard cases so when it gets here I'll start the cut down on one 50 Alaskan case to see how short...

    The .30-30 is fun with such bullets. I shot some similar loads through an old Savage 219 just the other day, used 6.5 grains of old Alcan 120 which burns like Red Dot. That Lee 113 grainer was what I used here, some of my dad's handloads with 5...

    I would be interested in a six (or maybe eight) cavity version of this boolit. It is a great plinker in all my 30 cal rifles. I would actually prefer the TL grooves though.
