    I have had a few 10 gauges, and used them for all kinds of stuff including dove hunting with 2-7/8 shells. I finally opted for the 12 ga in 3-1/2". I have like 3 flats of 3-1/2" shells, somewhere in the neighborhood of 25,000 2-3/4" rounds and...

    Not trying to be to quick to judge but this bucket is going in the trash. I have lost track at how many different batches as of now all with the same result. After trying it many different ways over the last two weeks; waited a day for drying, put...

    Yeah he was trying to do a lot of things all at once. Something generally suffers when that happens. Hard to start a forum too. Ammosmith different story of course but once was a great forum as well. Sent from my SM-G930T using Tapatalk

    I'd list it on your local craigslist as a rare item and get one of the local mall ninja's to come pick it up and move on.

    Well maybe I'm misunderstanding the directions but it said if they fail the rub test start over again. So I just coated them again. That is red copper. Sent from my SM-G930T using Tapatalk

    I generally seat the swc types so that the front drive band is flush with the case mouth. I know that ain't how every body else does it, but I don't have short chambering rounds either.

    had a vaquero and another one with 1 digit more in the serial number back before I let my dad talk me out of them. I have only had one 40 caliber mold, the magma engineering 38-40 rnfp mold. the SIL uses it in his 40 weak now.

    Joe Christensen replied to a thread Undersize bullets in Swaging
    As far as length I am not certain, as long as it is out of the way when pointing. From what I understand (and it may be minimal) the ejection rod should not even come into play when point forming. It is an ejection rod solely for ejecting and not...

    Interesting. I did not know that. Aside from everything I have read here this intrigues me more than the rest. I have 2% antimony on a 50 lb spool that I purchased from Vulcan a while back. Sure I use it but have always been curious that the...

    Note* everything I load with lead is kept below 1000fps. that could be where we differ in the opinion. generally diameter and shape are king of how things work, but it depends on the launch. I don't shoot much of my lead below 1,000 fps except...

    if it's a random issue and you have eliminated the cases being mixed, or different lengths etc. then I would look at the boolit itself. you might just have one cavity that isn't quite closing all the way and it is a bit larger in the exposed...

    Ok so these things look great. My problem is that after 4 coats they still fail the rub test. 400 degrees dried for a day in between. hmmmm?

    all those little notched pieces have a letter on the end of them. the notch lined up on a bar to make the letters line up into words. the type setter would lay it all out. when I buy lino-type from our print shop here it comes as spacers or the...

    key holing is a function of stability. your either spinning the boolit fast enough to be stable or you ain't. the grip on the rifling will determine whether your spinning the boolit enough or not. too small = skidding and non stabilization. ...

    Jim that's more like what I use. over speeding a large meplated boolit into flesh and bone will give you a very dead animal. you'll have to look for some of the parts and pieces but it will be dead. I remember hitting a grouse too far down when...

    the white is lead oxide it generally forms from being exposed to water. I do a lot of term storage of normal lubed boolits, 5 gallon buckets do a great job. if I were to put some stuff up for true long term storage I would just do a coat of...

    I probably shop a bit weird. if stuff is on sale I calculate how much we could use by the expiration and buy that much. we might go to 2-3 different stores when we are down in town and sometimes go back to the first to pick up those 3-4 things...
