    My most used (almost exclusively) cast in 9mm is the Lee 120 TC (conventional lube)sized 357 for my several 9's. Works great @ 1.055" OAL in the modern guns that have no lead to the rifling and is accurate in my guns. Similar in design is the...

    Cherokee replied to a thread Alloy for 44 Mag in Cast Boolits
    As long as the size fits the throats and is larger than the bore, you don't need "hard" cast. COWW with some tin to help fill out should be fine, especially for your less than Mag loads. My experience, YMMV.

    Yeah, I think a regular powder measure would be alot easier. The Lee Perfect Powder Measure is $22.89 at Titan Reloading. This would solve your problem better than all the dippers in the world,, for $22.89! Just sayin' Randy

    Punched more than a few gaskets. The hot tip is to use the end of a 2x4 or 4x4 as your backup. The punch penetrates the end grain of the wood cleanly whereas cross grain just tries to push it out of the way. You get cleaner cuts punching into...

    If you guys are punching a small hole with a hot nail or needle that's all you need. You are going to use a Wood Screw or other similar screw with a tapered point and the poly of the wad will give way and the screw will thread in easily. No need...

    I have no Glock experience...XDM & Canik shooter. However, I have found the 356-120 Lee with lube grooves to be a great performer in my guns. I've shot about 50k rounds loaded with it without any problems and accuracy is better than I can hold. I...

    After casting, I count (calculate) them by weight using the typical weight of 10 or so bullets. They get counted when I run them thru the Star sizer, then stored in cardboard boxes until needed. Always like to have a ready supply of the bullets I...
