    bmortell replied to a thread No sizing in Leverguns
    even if its fine and safe and so forth your just adding a variable since your not using it like that again next time as it will be sized

    I cant agree with any of that really. the alternative to the bible is the laws of physics. its the best explanation of everything we got, we call things a theory until they are proven, and update the model when its wrong. if something is unknown the...

    my mold is .432 then I powder coat so I can atleast size to .433 and get smooth full contact maybe .4335. if not do 2 coats and get the next size range. so my projectiles and sizer can grow as needed. maybe I can do some sort of test to figure out...

    i don't wanna ream myself a throat or whatever, that's more than im comfortable with. and don't have gunsmith around or money for them, so the gun is staying how it is. for sizing i can up the size of my push through just fine, i already upped it...

    In my quest for accuracy previously i slugged the muzzle end and got .4315 so i lapped my sizer to .4325 and used that, i was getting 4 or 5 moa but i was using irons so i was happy didnt think it was the guns fault. Then recently i put my best...

    You can just wrap sandpaper around a rod in a hand drill. Polishing the smallest point in a push through sizer dont need to be high tech at all. You just need to mic frequently, nothing esle really to go wrong besides going too big

    Same could happen to you since your gambling on one particular religion being right out of countless many. I dont think the odds of picking the right one is any higher than all of them being a test of exclusion rather than inclusion since thats also...

    how are yous getting the bearing surface to be completely clean and not black at all. looks like you shot it from a clean new barrel with compressed air.

    same, last one I got was a .430 but it measured .4295 X .4305 and not very smooth. I buy them as cheap blanks to make my custom size and in the process they get round and smooth

    doesn't matter what you bring up because saying god made it happen like that is always just as valid as a claim as saying he exists in the first place. its a logical checkmate where you can never move. I think the main problem is if all something...

    spent over an hour trying to think of anything productive, but the only thing i can think of is people believing things that are unfalsifiable is a logical dead end.

    right, I just think its easier to not drop them on the same spot when air cooling cause I have 12 feet of bench to drop boolits on

    the bottom of a bucket covered in hardened boolit corners sticking up is not at all comparable to a folded soft towel

    they get dents on the square base corner which I really want to avoid, you have a hot soft boolit falling corner first through some air and water then the corner impacts another boolit that is already cooled and hard on the bottom. possibly...

    id just mix half hard and half pure then do a real test for whatever your goal is like accuracy ect. if it does what you want it don't really matter what the arbitrary hardness number is. if it don't do what you want adjust with more pure or hard....

    ive only ever gotten dents water dropping because I cant control if they land on eachother unless I built something to go in the bucket to slow them down mid water before they hit eachother. air cooled I have several feet of space to drop them on my...

    it deffinitly works I do it with almost everything I shoot, towards the end of cooking I get it up to 425 for a few minutes, then fast as I can take the tray out and throw it in bucket with some ice water. then let em sit for a week to get hard. I...

    ya heat treating from a higher temp makes harder boolits. then reheating in the oven resets it to be heat treated at a lower temp this time in the water. but from the mold is probably like 475 ish by the time it hits the water, at 700 youd be...

    probably gonna get a recommended list of every model made. but as they say accuracy is cheap nowadays, at least with jacketed. if you plan for much cast shooting that will probably narrow it down by twist rate, but ive never done small bore cast so...

    normally the heavier projectile powder charge data would be lower which is why its safer to use data from heavier boolits. also need to consider the amount of case volume the base takes up. a deep seated light boolit might have a lower safe charge...
