    I started Powder coating all my cast boolits about 9 months ago. All leading in every gun from .40 S&W to .45-70 .44 Special/Magnum and .45 ACP magically disappeared. The guns are 4 gen 3 Glocks, Kimber 1911, Ruger SBH and BH, S&W696, Marlin...

    I agree completely with the good reports about Arsenal molds. Also agree about the finish on the sprue plate. Did not cause any problems though, and looked better after casting and luring with bull plate. I bought 2 of his .358-429 molds and am well...

    I cast them out of 2/3/95 alloy and size them nose down in my Star sizer using a flat face punch, the bevel goes away and it becomes a square base.

    This is a perfect example of don't believe what you read on the internet. I have many friends who have Su16's these guns are easily under 2" at 100 yards and most are well below that. Mine is 2" with Wolf Commie Ammo as is my Mini14. My SU16CA is...

    I also shoot right handed & am left eye dominate but it hasn't caused me too much grief. Also that 357 will work just fine with correct bullet placement, just know your limits (your dads) and make it happen. And if you have doubts you can HP a few...

    Cherokee replied to a thread Just asking ? in Cast Boolits
    3/3/94 is the hardest alloy I use, for rifle bullets in the 1600 fps range and for 9mm. Everything else is 2% tin and COWW, and I know I don't "need" that much tin. This has been in the last 20 years or so; for the 30 years before that I was in...

    I don't see what the misunderstanding is here. Red Dots are the most common optic out there now and pretty much all US Military Units use them on Rifles. I have a Fast Fire 3 on my Glock 35 and it is mounted to the rear sight dovetail, not...

    Lamar, I would say it was above average for fat but not as much as yours. I think the doe mule deer & doe antelope I shot in Utah last month were both fatter but they were living the good life, right in some farmers field pretty much year round. I...

    Well I skinned my buck today & found the bullet! I think this might be the first cast bullet I've ever found although I must admit I quit looking a long time ago because they always went out the other side. Three things really surprised me about...

    Jim: Your grip sounds like a serious problem. If you are not having the web of your hand all the way up under beavertail of the gun you need to start. This is important to insure you are gripping the gun the same way every time. Also your...

    This is the way to mount a scope on a #4 Mk1 It is the easiest way and you can go back if you want to. Either S&K or ATI will do the same thing. Randy

    One other little tid bit. Make sure you ahve your ears covered when you shoot that thing. A 7MM Mag is going to have a serious report and it woudl normally be directed down range away from you. The Brake will direct the blast to the sides and...

    I have a Sub 2000 in .40 S&W also and it has been a great gun. I don't get to shoot it as much as I would like, but hopefully that will change soon with the introduction of the Pistol Caliber Carbine shoots now going on. Most of the Pistol...

    The bullet was a Miha 245 gr cast HP that I powder coated. This is the second buck I've taken using this bullet with 10 grs of Unique, the other buck was 94 yds & I shot him through both lungs with an exit & he took about one step & dropped. I'll...

    FYI, one of the things I found on my 650 using an oversized powder thru/expander for 9mm was more difficulty withdrawing the funnel from the case, such that it shook powder from the filled case. This is because you want to go deeper into the case...

    Typically when calibrating a o-1" mic you would make the adjustment by closing the mic and making the adjustment. If you are measuring stuff that is closer to 1" then using a 1" standard would be more accurate. Older micrometers do vary...

    Order a piece of 9/16-18 all-thread from MSC or McMaster-Carr. It will be soft enough that you can machine it easily with Hi Speed tool bits.Then you can make it as short as you need. You can also just bell the case mouth only by using a pair of...

    TN: I guess the deal is that the places he goes only allow a certain amount of live ammo to be brought in for each gun, and so if you plan on shooting more you have to reload. This guy uses his .577NE for everything by shooting reduced loads for...
