    If you have a high pressure event with reloaded ammo, the way to bet is that if too much powder could get in the case, too much powder did get into the case. How it did is secondary to vigilance from here on out in preventing too much powder from...

    I will not use 7.3 grains Unique. Pretend like you believe I am actually speaking from experience and chronograph obtainable velocities with a much lighter charge than 7.3 grains using the 452374 or any similar 230. As I have...

    Precisely why I stocked up on 4759 at half the cost per lb. when it was being discontinued. It does the same thing as 5744 with a bit faster burn rate. They are unnecessarily proud of 5744 in regards to pricing IMO. For current lower cost...

    The low charge with the Speer SWC is to duplicate target velocities and avoid leading. Six grains with the 225 RN is fine and more or less duplicates or slightly exceeds military hardball. There is no practical reason to go faster. What you do...

    Moot point. Hornadys wadcutters are not that hard. Harder than pure lead, but substantially softer than wheelweights.

    Hornady’s swaged HBWC’s are not at all hard. Take that from a guy who has hardness tested them and been on a tour of the plant six times. Anything swaged from extruded lead wire is by necessity soft. One of the things one can only disabuse...

    Rubber mulch packed in a container works very poorly especially with small group shooting. The repeated impact in the same place makes a tunnel in the mulch and the bullets whiz thru unimpeded. Ask me how I know.

    Mehavey, the very fact that it is deliberately done the way it is indicates what you think is “unnecessary” is in fact necessary. When your perception of what is needed does not match what actually occurs, it is time to change your erroneous...

    This is why, upon request, longer expanders intended for HBWCs are made. With these the point about case wall expansion and thickness is not as moot as you are trying to make it. The base of the HBWC bullet cannot be at all past the expanded...

    The widest diameter is not bore diameter. It is groove diameter. The narrowest measured diameter on a slug is bore diameter. Using terms correctly avoids confusing your responders and helps answer your question correctly. Know the difference...

    Be sure to go nowhere near 3.5 grains Red Dot in the 32 Long case!! That load data that suggests that is dangerously too much.

    In short barrels the slow powders get highest velocities at allowable pressure levels. Something to think about.

    I thought my friend’s 480 Ruger was fairly mild to shoot out of his stainless Blackhawk. Somewhat obnoxious is my .54 TC Scout pistol with a 530 grain bullet and a hefty charge of 777.
