    Many years back when all I had was a .308W with a 10" twist I killed a lot of rock chucks (groundhogs western cousin) with a Lyman 311041 HP cast of COWWs + 50% lead (with todays COWWs add 2% tin then mix with the lead) loaded over 26.5 gr H4895 in...

    You gain another 200 - 300 fps up to 2500+ fps capability. This is because you are controlling the RPM which is very important when shooting cast at HV. Especially if the bullet has a long bore riding nose with minimal bearing surface. Getting up...

    I think you'll find most H4895 to be a tudge faster burning than IMR4895 which is why it is listed as faster burning on most burn rate charts. H4895 is made in Australia and IMR4895 is still made in Canada. Larry Gibson

    The 12" twist with those long bore riding nosed cast bullets will limit accuracy to 2200 fps, maybe 2300 fps. If you get the rebore I'd suggest you have JES give it a 14" twist with a .348 bore giving .005 deep grooves for a .358 groove diameter. ...

    I really like the Harris swivel leg notch bipods. You would want the 6" to 9" model. I use a wedge off the bench like the one in the video. The wedge works very well with most types of supports for the front.

    IMR4895 will work best in the 30-06 with heavy medium to heavy cast bullets (175 - 220 gr). Start at 26 or 27 gr and work up to 34 gr or accuracy goes south (usually above 1950 fps +/-). It will work even better with a Dacron filler. Larry...

    You're not getting the alloy into the cavities quick enough. Many do not realize how quickly alloy solidifies once it's out of the pot and into cavities. I suggest running the alloy at 715 - 725 degrees. Adjust the spout control to allow a faster...

    Per the OP this is done without issues. Why would the manufacture harden a die body that uses a full length carbide insert?

    On the Dillon 223 carbide dies no need to harden the die body. This die uses a full length carbide insert and the body is soft. For standard dies only wear surface tend to be hardened. Heat Treating cost money so if not need it's generally not...
