    It sounds like I'm doing it all wrong. What I do is buy a 300'? roll of butcher paper every ten years or so and use the orange paste on dots from birch wood casey for targets. Maybe I need a softer paper? Waco, what kind of grouping do you get with...

    Bill, that's possible but with a load of 5gr. of w231 I should be getting 800+. The front band on the Accurate mould has a shoulder that slopes upward more than the other copies that I've seen and that I believe is what causes the "raggedy" holes....

    Question for the 1911 gurus. I have always been a revolver guy, but finally broke the mold. Settled on and bought a Ruger sr1911 target in 45acp. After shooting a couple of different boolit styles, I've settled on the H&G 68. So, my question is, is...

    Jon, Satans lube is my most used homemade lube for handguns. This stuff feels like it but when I melted some, Oh man, the stink. No BW smell or petroleum. So, who knows? Ideally, the soap lubes are what I want to wind up with, but finding micro-wax...

    This stuff is definitely not BW. I've made enough lubes to know the smell and hardness. Weird stuff though. It glides and feathers just like a good homemade lube should but no telling how clean or nasty the stuff would be when shot. Even so, I'm...

    Yesterday, a good friend stopped by and dropped off a six lb. chunk of wax. He said that his father used to lube boolits by hand with it. Supposedly it's BW BUT I don't think so. There is no BW odor and neither is there any petroleum smell. This wax...

    I won't tell you what to do,but in my opinion, the rnf design is the easiest profile to get good results from quickly. The Arsenal 358-162 rnf or their 360-155 rnf would give great diversity and accuracy in both rifle and revolver. Accurate molds,...
