    Another vote for BLL here. Cept I like to run mine with 1% Carnuba wax melted into the mix for clean shiny bores. Personally I found pan lubing and cake cutting a messy pain in the posterior. Hit BLL early hit the ground running and never...

    Comes down to bullet fit. I leaded up my Yugo SKS with 50 rounds, took 3 days to get it clean. But it also got rid of the dark gunk in the bottom of the grooves. But I was running undersized bullets, with the wrong lube and pushing the power...

    I say "almost shiny clean" only because I use a homemade moly- mix lube, and moly leaves a bit of grey residue, of which is no consequence.

    the only way to get WW's consistent is BIG batches that will last a long time before you need to re-test what you have, and add tin or what have you as necessary, I usually do a minimum of 120ish lbs, sometimes more

    wwell, in lymans 3rd, the min load is 14 max 16 for a 265 gr saeco boolit, but it has a bit more bearing surface than the keith style, so I am sure it is fine, that and the devastator info goes to 15 or 15.5 max, and it usually weighs 275 by the...

    so BjeffV, to get 1100-1200fps, with a 275gr keith ( actual weight) in my SBH bisley hunter 7.5", would 14grs get it there? I know it should according to your pressure gun, but what about in a revolver, with the flash gap, and the heavier boolit...

    mega, I am shooting 275gr ( actual weight) keith style boolits out of my SBH bisley hunter, and I was thinking 15 grains would be a good charge, hoping for maybe 1100-1200 max fps, what do you think?

    also, make sure your sprue plate swings freely, this gives the air in the mold a way to escape, and will help with the rounded edges, I just had that problem with a new noe, it was mainly with the rear cavity. some molds you can get away with having...

    Well I hear you on diminishing ability, age plays a factor, as do health issues. To be honest I shot my 1911 for the first time in 2 years last weekend. Had the neighbor boys to the range, Jean being a 14 yr Ranger with multiple tours in the...

    I started switching irons to Red Dot sights some 3 years ago. To be honest all of mine have been in the 60-65$ range. Truglo has worked the best for me. Some of those are non optic, some are 2x magnification. Which I find works really good for...

    you need to add something, like 2 stroke oil, and maybe some grease, well, I dunno if that would work for tumble lube, but you cant count on just wax to do anything but lead.

    I agree with posts # 2, 4, 5. They are my first choice all options being equal. I have yet to have a problem with them. I bought a fair amount back when they were 3.00$ per hundred. Feeling pretty good about that now. Have also used...

    I doubt my answer is definative. I have a Springfield Armory 1911, made mid 90's. No full length guide rod. Gun will shoot better than I can hold. Period. Lock it into a vice or a real good rest, fire 5 at whatever distance you like. Then...

    for elk and bear, I would go with the noe 358009 280 grainer, you could push it at 2100-2200 and I imagine it would pass through all but the biggest of bears, I think lyman no 2 would do that without heat treating, and you would benefit with a bit...
