    I think I would rather fill from the top rather than the bottom. your grain amount and muzzle speed isn't too out of kilter suggesting the powder isn't slow enough to need a kicker charge. I'd drop a grain and a half and try a grain and a half of...

    nickel okay, steel not so much. I usually just dry tumble the nickel cases.

    those should still work. but the powder coat should flow and smooth out at about 350-f then have a wet look as it cooks and not change that look/color until it starts to harden as it cools. you might want to check your ovens temperature. and...

    if your cases are too clean they will stick on the flair/powder through dies especially on the Dillon's. I just swipe my left hand on the funnel every 4-5 rounds. it has a little lube on the fingers from handling the boolits. for rifles when...

    I think that marlin is in better shape than my 1920's made Win. 92 rifle in 25-20, the carbine too now that I think about it.

    that is true.^^ my 041 easily makes 311 but it ain't a new one. I size mine to 310 but only 2 of my rifles will shoot it worth beans. one really likes it and the other tolerates it, probably because of the load I'm using behind it.

    runfiverun replied to a thread something i did in Cast Boolits
    lots of cases make pretty good bullets for other calibers with some up/down manipulation. 380's are fairly close for 375 bullets, 5.7 brass can be made into 30-31 cal rifle bullets, the new 17 Winchester rim fire is almost spot on for 270/7mm...

    I finally updated my deer rifle to the 30-06. I figured I better get with the times and quit using the 7x57 now that the Mule deer have finally spoke with their white tail cousins and got bullet proof. the Elk haven't figured out how to do that...

    a bit more heat will help. there used to be this crazy guy that run around Africa with powder in his right side pockets and round balls in another one. he would re-load by grabbing a handful of black powder and dropping it in the barrel then ram...

    you can just buy the dies right here from BT Sniper. a 180gr 358 cal boolit for a core and an annealed 40 short and weak case and you get a 44 mag bullet. flat point-hollow point you can even notch the nose to look just like an XTP. I shoot them...

    the 9's I have seem to do just fine sized to 358. an alloy similar to 1% Tin and 3% antimony is just about right for target type loads. I drop it in water from the mold and use it in my rifles. if I needed harder for a hand gun I'd drop them in...

    I just run the 40 case up on the flair tool a touch and slip fit it in the 44 and 45 cal cases so it is a friction fit. you can pour some lead in the case or not it will fly like a shuttlecock. I can assure you trying one in the 450 mag case...

    the next step is to decide what you really want from the rifle. more accuracy? if so then playing with boolit diameter and BHN and the lube is your next step. 100% operation? then moving to a slower powder that provides lower pressure but more...

    you just barely want a film in there. too much lube and you will blow it out the barrel. this leads to other issues like poor accuracy and just leaving a mess behind on/in the gun. you can stiffen up the lube to fight what is left behind but...

    Interesting. I have been debating getting one of the lyman 25 pots but not sure how it works with none of my molds being lyman. I thought this one not fitting was a sign to purchase one but I bet I can turn it sideways. Thanks I will check...

    1-8 is fine. 1-9 will stabilize a 57 no problem. 3 of us were shooting home swaged 57's at ground squirrels yesterday made using .650 jackets. I was also shooting my 64gr .704 jackets at rock chucks and ground squirrels in my 1-8, they both...
