    In theory, two. In practice, three. My "bore sighter" is a piece of painters' tape on a shed on the other side of the driveway. When I see someone chasing their zero around on a warm day I'll suggest they let it cool, on a hot day it's a whole...

    I use "soft" lubes (Ben's Red, BLL, and sometimes Simple lube) and get a consistent light lube star on my muzzles. All three "fling off" the boolit quickly on exit...which is a good thing to me. I never find any remaining lube on recovered boolits...

    I started back in the late 70's, had a fling going with holy black and CVA front stuffers. Bought a Lee 20 lb bottom pour and hated it. I battled with that thing for 2 months and eventually gave it away to a friend in disgust. I found a cheap...

    I am not that far down that rabbit hole. Mostly I just grab a handful of lubed bullets in my left hand and trickle them in one at a time while my right hand runs the handle. Prefered catch for me is an ice cream bucket hanging on the press...

    I did a full batch of just rice, in the steel liner, it did stick some. Also overcooked it a bit. Our best rice has always been 1 cup of rice one and a half cups of water, I use a ceramic bowl, and do it first so it can soak. Put that on top...

    The boolit needs to be sized to fit YOUR chambers throat, .001"-.002" over bore groove diameter. You find the measurements by doing a pound slug of your chamber (see below). The quick and dirty way is to measure the inside diameter from a case neck,...

    My main press is mounted on a big heavy bench. But I have a cheap Lee C press mounted under a table close to my casting station. There for sizing and gas checking and that is all it does. Screws need to be tightened. Some bullets I need to...

    I suspect it is all in the sausage. Salt and pepper also help, pepper in particular. My wife and I have been discovering that Cavendish greek seasoning adds a nice bit of flavor to foods that have grown tasteless with age. Might try it.

    Yes, it's practical to size down by .003" but, you shouldn't have to. The boolit needs to be sized to fit your chambers throat, .001"-.002" over bore groove diameter. You find the measurements by doing a pound slug of your chamber (see below). The...

    Yes, I believe that iron molds are less touchy. Aluminum molds aren't that bad, though. Using a hot plate to pre-heat your mold would make a huge difference. Keep casting without checking or inspecting your bullets until you notice that they start...

    Good for the two of you. I got off to a late start, was 44 when I found mine, 21.5 years later it keeps getting better. Takes teamwork, and no quitting. If you are going to do it you have to truly commit to it 150%. I think that very few...

    I like a lot of calibers, unique stuff is fun. Lately I've been having a blast with .32sw longs in a pair of H&R revolvers. Today while browsing through the forums I find a Rem Rolling Block #4 for sale for 500$ in .32sw long. Yeah, match...
