    Imagine trying to clean powder residue out of there? No way, no how. Unacceptable in my opinion, but I will always agree with a diplomatic approach...at first.

    They staked the living heck out of it! It may be fixed now, but let's face it...your never gonna be happy with it. I certainly wouldn't be. It it was me, I would insist that they either replace the gun, or refund the money. Not cool...

    I have a P220, and love it also. It's accurate and dependable, no complaints with it at all. My favorite load for it is the RCBS 201 SWC with 4.8 grains of Bullseye. I use Federal 150 primers in it though. I noticed that say that you are using...

    This thread keeps coming up and makes me pine that I do not shoot my 338-06 anymore. I built my first 338-06 in 1979 and shot a bazillion (GG) cast bullets in it as well as hunting deer and elk. I had LBT make me a PP mold about 25 years ago....

    I agree with Charles on this. There may an exception or two. Particularly when it comes to foreign milsurp rifles such as Mosin and other fat 30's. They can be all over the map too. What he says about chamber throat/free bore/leade still apply. On...

    I have boiled smaller batches (several hundred at a time) of boolits in water with a little dish soap added to remove old lube. The lube floats to the top and can be skimmed off. Not knowing how many your "large number" is, I would say do this in...

    richhodg66 replied to a thread 7x57mm Mauser in Hunting with CB's
    The .358 is a good one, have used it with cast on deer myself, but you don't really need bullets that big to deer hunt effectively. The .30s and .32 I've used worked great. Was a little apprehensive about one this small, but if I haven't tagged...

    Try adding a rubber O-ring under the die lock nut. Adding the o-ring allows the die to float and self center in the press. I had the same problem a couple times, and once it was the shellholder. The other time the problem was resolved by the o-ring.

    I just took it he meant groove as sometimes bore is what is said. If the BORE is 0.424" there are a lot of choices for bullet molds. Getting the exact bore and groove in a gunshop setting takes a little talking with the sales staff and does not...

    I guess some things are just hard to improve on. I think I'll just stick with the load I have. Thanks for all the input.

    It's a good bullet for what I've done with it. I'd be curious to see how it works on game, I kind of figured it was too light, but after seeing how well this bulle that was only 30 grains heavier penetrated, the soup can might work fine.

    I'm looking to see if anyone has data for any "newer" powders for this boolit in the 45 Auto Rim. I have been using 6.8 gr Unique with pretty decent results. Finding data for any of the newer powders (ie Power Pistol, etc.) has been a little scarce....

    ShooterAZ replied to a thread Stupid Things I Do in Cast Boolits
    Personally, I wouldn't use it. Iv'e done it before too, so don't feel bad! I always err on the side of caution, I disposed of it when it happened to me. The lesson for me was to just try and make sure the measure is empty before adding a new powder.

    I think you got it. Fit the throat, not the barrel. I have a first year 1892 with a tight barrel. BUT, bullets from my Ideal tong loading tool cast 0.427-0.429" (not round) and load and chamber fine. A four cavity 42798 cast on the soft side and...

    ...............If you're using a "Big Bore" like 375" or more (like .458") 45-70 etc, a FN design cast 1-10 or pure lead paper patched will do all you want to considerable ranges. You just have to do your homework (ie: ranges) to be an ethical...

    PPU brass is available and reasonable. Get a set of dies and it reloads just like any thing else. It's better than the .30-30 in that it can use spritzer type bullets if you like. Don't let the nay sayers tell you wrong, it's as easy to have ammo...

    The fawns are weaned now and still have a couple of months of relatively mild weather and good food sources. They'll be OK if orphaned now. That said, nothing wrong with your decision at all. I like to watch deer from my stand and watch a lot...
