    This is generally what I have seen too, this is why I asked in the OP "Do the heavier bullets shoot higher like you would expect? I saw one guy say his Lee 300 hits lower than the Lee 255 at 50 yards." I am more interested in zeroing for...

    I made it to the range last weekend. I found that 250s around 1000 fps shot dramatically different at 50 yards compared to all other loads tried. With my tall front sight, I could zero the subsonics but all other loads were 4-8 inches low. 250s...

    I once had a Rossi 92 357 that took 12 pieces of scotch tape on the rim before the lever wouldnt close. I has ruining 38 special cases on first firing, and a small percent of factory and reload 357s would have case separations after firing or during...

    With a bottom pour pot ad 2 to 6 cavity molds, my good consistent weight bullets come only when the mold is run like a robot. I do not keep any bullets cast before I have a 3 second liquid sprue. At my rate of casting, if the sprue starts...

    I have had 3 or 4 Rossi 92s in 357 and they were all 4 MOA guns or better with open sights. Every gun would shoot 10 shots around an inch at 50 yards. At 100 yards every gun would shoot 10 shots under 4 inches. Open sights are harder to shoot but...

    You need your tin equal or greater than the percentage of antimony. 3-3-94 is a much better alloy than 2-3-95 (ww +2% tin). When every antimony molecule has a tin molecule to bond with, they will bond and the alloy becomes much more ductile. You...

    Nice stuff oldhenry! Depending on how recently those were cast, they may age harden some. With my 850 fps 250 grain 45 colt loads using 2-2-96 air cooled, the bullets mushroomed two weeks after cast and 2 months after cast they only swelled up...
