    I don't know if a DD band mold is ideal for a self loader, try it and find out.

    The 6mm Creedmoore uses the .473" headsize of the 30/06 cartridges. The 303 Brit bolt face would need to be reduced. The Creedmoore was designed for 308 length magazine.

    Yup on the scars. I like your truck. I bought my last new truck on 2016...a Tacoma TDR Sport. Goes anywhere I need to go in the winter. I have highway tires on it so it is not something I want to take on mud with. The truck should last me as...

    Well the Lower Mainland and the Island are rather unique. NE BC is as cold as it gets. Living near the coast has some advantages even here in the NW. Coming from Alberta winters here are pretty easy to take. Snow is still snow, I remain a Sam...

    I look forward to planting coconut trees in the back yard. "Sam McGee was from Tennessee" and he had the right idea. Shut the oven door you are letting in a draft. I dislike winter! Take Care Bob

    Black prince I would lap the molds. What difference does it make if they cast out a bit different? You are going to size the bullets down to .357 so they all will end up being the same. I think we are over thinking this way to much. Take Care...

    I bought this from Brownells about 25 years ago, tack new handle then remove the jig and screw in the heat sink, weld it up. I used to use their heat control paste on the body too but ran out a dozen or so bolts ago, forget it.

    Not really. The difference is they are in hunting mode. They use slugs. They aren't carrying anything else other than their 40 cal Glocks because that is what they are issued and allowed to carry. Bears in the main are going to leave you...

    What weight of bullet are you looking at? Stick to 124/125 gr weights if you want to maximize accuracy. Take Care Bob

    Mo did a great job with them. I purchased my first one in 1992 at Camp Perry. Still can find them on eBay. Overall I prefer the RCBS.

    Black Prince the mold I use drops the bullets out of the mold between .3575 and .3585 depending on the alloy I use. My .358 sizer will touch the bullets, my .357 sizing die sizes the full circumference of the bullet. I use two Lyman 4 cavity molds...

    My go to mold is the Lyman 356402 mold. I have shot thousands of these over the years and they run through my guns like butter. I used them in my FN Hi-Power when I had one. I size them .357 and load them to 1.10" OAL. Great bullet and very...
