    Has anyone experimented using Redding Imperial Sizing Wax used as a bullet lube? I know the Imperial Wax is far too expensive to use for more than a few experimental shots. If it worked good could Imperial Sizing Wax be duplicated at home from...

    Too bad the manufacturers cut the mold to such a large diameter. I thought all the gun makers now bored their barrels to shoot the smaller post WW2 .451” bullet size. The mold makers should follow the size requirements for the modern guns or...

    Source of air, your going to blow tumbler dust into the room air. That’s not good. If you dry media tumble, then you must rinse off the tumbler dust under running water. Spread the wet cases out on a towel and roll them a little to get off the...

    Rotometals Linotype Alloy 4%-Tin, 12%-Antimony, and 84%-Lead BHN 22 If you added and equal amount of pure lead then the tin and antimony content in the batch of alloy would be cut in half, so you would now have 2% tin, 6% Antimony and 92% lead. I...

    Don't try to pressure cast by holding the mold against the valve outlet, you will get light off weigh bullets because there will be a void inside. You must make a sprue a puddle of liquid alloy because some of the liquid in the sprue neck gets...

    I think in the future I won’t lube more than a few months worth for immediate need. Maybe re-melting my batch of Emmerts every couple of years and adding a few more drops of oil to compensate for what leeched out of the mix and got absorbed on to...

    The label on my canisters of Olde Eynsford say “Royal Blend” so I believe that this powder is a blend of powders from different sieve screen sizes. As you and I observed OE granules size is not uniform as would be culled from a single sieve screen...

    greenjoytj replied to a thread SPG recipe in Boolit Lube !
    Next time I make up a batch of Emmerts I’m going to replace the EVOO with Jojoba oil. The colour of my batch of Emmerts looks very similar to the bees wax that was used. I was expecting the colour to look whiter, like my example sticks of SPG. It...

    What diameter does the RCBS mould 45-270-SAA drop at? I know the fresh out of the mold diameter is dependent on alloy used and the casting temperature, but maybe some members can give some examples of the diameter they got with the alloy and...
