    I'm thinking resin or hot glue boolits would hold together, not separate. Since we do most forms of reloading here I think we are pretty safe to keep investigating the wood capsule/sabot loads. God Bless, and One Love. GoodOlBoy

    That question has been bugging me since I first saw them. I would suspect (but won't know until I can deconstruct a round or two) that there would be some kind of wadding in the base. Can it be? Certainly on a newly made round it CAN be, and I...

    I like the Lee HB 405, it is actually my preferred bullet for "cowboy" loads in my old H&R single shot. I have yet to shoot them over black, but I know of a fella who did. His solution was to fill the hollow in the bottom of the bullet with the...

    I would just keep pulling bullets, dumping powder, and drop a hammer on the empty case to pop the primers. I know it's alot of doing, but then you CAN sell them for scrap brass, and honestly that is the best solution. I would NOT bury them, or...
