    Wow, that reminds me i've got to make some more Ben's Red too. I've been using so much of Ben's BLL lube since it came out, i've run completely out of Ben's Red. Ben hit a homerun with both of these great lubes! One big batch of Ben's Red does...

    I've used it here in the South year round and have never had a problem with melting. It gets a lot hotter here than where you live. My brother lives close to you and has no such problems. He's just up the mountains a bit from Denver. I shoot at...

    Very nice cast boolit shooting. I have that very boolit in both pb and gc. Very accurate in my .308 mauser, but with one minor problem lol.....the mauser doesn't want to feed it from the mag. no matter if it's seated out long or short. Oh well,...

    You will probably get lots of opinions on this question, but here's mine from my experience. Ben's Red carries me year round hot or cold. I've shot with a 115* heat index with actual temp. at 105* and same performance at 20*. I have since seen where...

    I've been using Auto Zone's "DexMerc", which i was told was their version of Dexron. I seldom clean my bores when shooting cast, but when i do, it's 1 dampened patch of DexMerc, and then 1 dry patch before shooting again. It's worked great with...

    Update on the loose bbl. band. My brother sent me one of a pair of steel pins with the screws in the end he ordered from AirWerks. Went in with a very tight flush fit and the screws tightened up right against the pump cylinder. Seems to be holding...

    With the "set" spring it looks like it did real well from 2100 psi to 1500 for a 170 dollar pcp..Looks like about a 42 fps. spread for 25 to 26 shots. Probably do even better as it breaks in more?

    sghart3578, You said you just started recently just running a dry patch and then an oily patch after shooting. Are you running a dry patch through the bore before shooting then? If not, the oil may be creating a "too slick" bore condition for...

    If you have any Johnson's liquid lube, you could make up some BLL for tumble lube...dries hard and fast. 3 coats for rifles = no leading with proper boolit fit. It IS the graile for tumble lubeing for me. If not, try the JPW and 45/45/10, or...

    Micro grooves generally like fat boolits, as in 2 thou. Dia. Over what the bbl. slugs. They can shoot cast fast when fed what they like and those small lands and grooves are sealed off properly. I think the old Lyman manuals are probably responsible...
