    birch, Is the "Rapine Nose Pour--Hollow Base 386185. $75 shipped" the one for the .41 Long Colt? If so, I'll take it. Actually, I noticed that you have listed 2 of them - are they both the same? I'll still take one, but let me know if there...

    beagle replied to a thread Over lube a bullet??? in Cast Boolits

    beagle replied to a thread Angled Grease Grooves? in Cast Boolits
    I think we often times get hung up on the amount of lube needed by a cast bullet. We know that Keith's square grooves made release more difficult but at the time was probably necessary due to the lubes available. With the improved lubes we have...

    adam20 sometimes you have to accept the way things in life turn out. I don't like the city but situations have made it where I have to be. My life would be great if I could be out in the country and not have close neighbors.
