    Went2KcK, when you are breaking in a new mould it can take a few casting sessions sometimes to start making good bullets. What you need to proper alloy temp, proper mould temp & proper alloy "flow". Once you get all 3 you should be making good...

    I checked my bullet mould & it says 453490, it's a Miha mould so it is a clone of the 452190 like I thought. Doesn't really matter, it's a fine looking bullet & I have no doubt it will work just fine. If I didn't think it would I wouldn't use it. In...

    Dubber123, the 452190 is the old Lyman design as you mention & I "think" that's what this mould is labeled but I might be wrong, I'll check it tomorrow. Went hunting again today but there was a whole crew of workers right in the crick (creek) for...

    mattw, congratulations, those are some really big deer! I'm not surprised because those midwestern deer are some of the biggest deer in the country, many of them are bigger than our western mule deer. Some people don't believe that but it's true. A...

    sharpsguy, so how many deer have you taken with six guns? I've been taking them for 50 years & almost always used solids but in the last few years I've decided to experiment with some HP's. The way I've approached it is to slow them down a bit so I...

    I've decided to focus on using a new HP for deer hunting this fall. Recently I've taken 3 different animals with 3 different guns but all 3 were 5 1/2" barreled guns so I've decided to use one of my favorite 4 5/8's old models with this new bullet &...

    Yes those are Holly, I make lots of them. I had that pair on my OM Ruger 41 maggie for a long time. Used it on a feral hog in Texas back in 2006 so I had a guy engrave a hog on it while we were wintering in Bandera. Now they are on my 32 Maggie....

    That's a plain base, powder coated bullet, I seldom use a gas check. After heat treating a powder coated bullet they usually come out about a 9-11 BHN but you can run them faster than a lubed bullet because the powder coating protects them. If you...

    The lanyard is the lacing from an old pair of boots, I need to shorten it a bit but haven't done it yet. The fiber optic sight is one that we make for the pinned sighted guns, works great. I have them in both red & green. I've sold them for several...

    Markbo, yes you are, I just used a 260 gr. Keith slug in my 45 Bisley last week to take a depredation doe using 18.5 grs of 2400, broke one front leg, got both lungs & an exit with that same 70/30 blend. Knocked her flat. No need to water quench...

    Stuart, OldBearHair, nailed it. The deer are in transition right now, going from their light red summer coat to their more gray fall color. Many land owners that have irrigated crops in remote, dry areas draw wild life like a magnet. These areas...

    Also, if you're going to use them for shooting like I do & you're on flat ground then make a second hole for a second loop a little less than half way down. That way you can sit down & it will be just right for getting your left wrist through the...
