    I never slugged my SIL's Hungarian 9mm Mak. My 95gr Lee mold drops them at .366 or a bit more? it's been a while since I cast some. I Lube them with 45-45-10 twice, then load 'em without sizing using PowerPistol powder.

    if it's a hot summer day, I dry them outside, in the sun. BUT, if it's wintertime in MN, I use the wood stove to dry them. Also, I decap all rifle brass before they get the citric acid bath, bottle neck cases dry better without a spent primer in...

    At 253 gr 22 - 23 gr H110 is a good load. Still suggest WLP or CCI 350 primers, especially if used in colder weather.

    My 250 Savage and the caliber that displaced it (243 Winchester) are now both down the road. Both are great calibers, I might re-visit them again. If I go the 250 Savage route, barrel twist will be 1-9" or 1-10". Most of its use would be against...

    Maybe? The Hutchinson show in late Sept has been a staple for 36 years, known widely as a locally run 300 table show (by the Elk's club) with lots of private dealers, much like the Wells, MN show in March. There is usually a "crocodile productions...

    I can appreciate aesthetics, certainly. I think the Ruger LCR was inspired by Glock. The first LCR I saw REALLY put me off--I was raised on S&W K-frames and Colt I-frames as the archetype, and Browning Hi-Power or Colt-Browning 1903/1908 for...

    Myself, I keep it all separate and in it's original form, but I don't have 800lbs of mixed type. If I had 800lbs of mixed type, that's been sitting unused since '75 and I wasn't planning on selling it, then I'd surely think your plan of smelting it...

    You may need to go to a larger diameter. One easy check, will your sized bullet go easily into a fired case? If so, you need more diameter. There should be some resistance when the bullet enters the case.

    A .35 at 200 yards, and 2100 fps works as well or better than a jacketed bullet. At least none I've shot have complained, and are down in 30 yards or less.

    shot the barrel loose? WOW ! Ruger couldn't fix it? WOW ! again. As DougGuy says, .431 seems like the size to use, if it'll fit. Hunting load, I'd use H110, work up a load for your gun, starting at Hodgdon's recomendation for a start load.

    What weight bullet does your RCBS mould cast with your alloy? I've used H110 under cast 240 - 255 gr Keith type SWCs and the max load producing SAAMI MAPs is 23 - 25 gr. That's based on my own pressure testing with an Oehler M43 in a Contender...
