    That bullet does not like to be pushed fast. Try 28.5 gr of 4895 and a 1 gr of dacron. That will show you what the bullet is capable of.

    This design is Lee's worst mold they make. Look back through the history of this site and you will see all kinds of info on this TL design and the 9mm not working. But the regular lube grove one is one of the best molds Lee has. It is not really the...

    Well the headspace gauges for the 8mm are a little off. There was a lot of discussion in the past about this. The europeans used a different angle or something. I can not remember all the facts but it was found out that the USA versions of the 8x57...

    If you're having to seat deeper to get loads to chamber, and the case thickness is swaging down the back half of the boolit, that could explain the tumbling. A lot of guys send me those TC dummies seated out where there is a good .080" ~ .100" of...

    I have several 6s and you can double up the recipe. Cornbread is best when there is an optimal thickness, say 1 1/2" when batter is just poured in, and the size of the #6 skillet lends itself to a perfectly consistent 20min baking time at 450. ...

    The hotter the mold and melt, the more shrinkage involved. If the sprue puddle cools before shrinkage is finished the bullet will collapse/distorte.

    Thanks Guys, I spent $600.00 total for both guns and 700 rounds of ammo. The ammo is all old stuff from the 50's but new in the box. I am sure it is corrosive but frankly that does not bother me at all.

    I paid $149 for mine. It was a un issued gun when I got it. Mine is a plain M48. I have had about 20 or so of the 24/47's and 48's. A bunch were used for making sporters with a barrel change. This is one of my favorites. 24/47 made into a 257...
