    I have had 1 and one only that I have found with paper. Could a random flyer be paper maybe. But that bullet hit the intended target. How many stick I don't know. In almost 10 years I have found one. In all honesty you have a limited knowledge of...

    I am another one that believes that the single wrap would be a good way to go but the problem is carrying them in the field for field reloading. I use a vinyl tube to carry my patched bullets wrapped. I really don't want to have to wrap a bullet on...

    Saxtonyoung, if your stripping paper it is because the lead is too hard. Lewis and I just went over this recently. I have never tested the 500 S&W bullets that hard. I will be interested on how they do for you. But remember I had good luck with...

    Yesterday I was stuck watching water boil literally. So I decided if life gave me lemons make lemon aid. I was sitting over a bait pile and these pigeons came in. A buddy of mine shot them with his rifle exactly like mine. Both shots were about 40...

    Again hard alloy will drop out of a mould larger in diameter. Yours are at .511 after wrapping mine are .506 to .507 When shoving them through with soft lead from .507 to .501 I don't see that much resistance at all. Again if your lead...

    Alloy gets harder with age. When they are fresh sizing is much easier even with the soft ones I am doing.

    I can understand that you want to try something different because of the trouble with the sizing but. In all fairness your not using the combination I designed for the bullet. If you go back to lead that is .032 to .038 on the Tester dial, wrap...

    I think your hardness chart and mine are different. From .045 to .050 is 8.5 BHN, from .062 to .065 on my cabine Tree chart is 9.5 BHN. ,068 to .070 is 10 BHN. If yours is on the high side of .060's you might be in the 10 BHN range according to my...

    It really pisses me off. In Idaho I can legally hunt elk with a 25 ACP but not a 45 cal Muzzleloader with a 408 grain bullet.
