    What twist rate are you using as that will make a difference in accuracy compared to a standard mil-spec barrelled rifle.

    bruce drake replied to a thread 32 win special cast in Leverguns
    The Lee 8mm 175gr mold that Grmps mentions is a great starting mold for this caliber. If you can find a Lyman 323470 it is a Louverin design round-nose gas-check design that is almost perfect at 165gr for this caliber. I have used both and...

    On Saturday, I loaded forty .225" sized, poly-coated and gaschecked Bator RN boolits into some reformed 22-6mm Remington brass for my newest wildcat Mauser 98 rifle. I'm going to try to get to the range this weekend to try them out at 50 and 100...

    bruce drake replied to a thread 6.5 MM woes in Cast Boolits
    Agree with EVERYTHING that Larry just posted. I found that with my 6.5 Grendel (AR15) rifle liked a cast lead 100gr bullet from Lyman that I believe is discontinued (266305). I also use reformed 7.62x39 brass as my barrel is the original Type 1...

    The original designer stated that the original wildcat built off a 7mm case (.22/4000 Sedgley) would do anything the 220 Swift could do but as he was getting up in age (in the late 1940s) he wasn't going to push it heavily for acceptance by others...

    I'm waiting for the 22-6mm Remington reamer to come in the mail this week. I'm going to be recutting a 22-250 1-14" barrel that I've shot about 800 low pressure loads (223Rem powder levels 24gr IMR 4895 over 50gr jacketed spirepoints) through to...

    The molds have arrived at their two destinations. This thread should be closed.

    I went opposite on my AR10 in 308 Winchester. I recently bought a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel for it and have went downwards in size to a caliber of bullet (.264/6.5mm) that I'm preferring to shoot due to its lesser recoil and its impact on my surgically...

    Either a 1-12" or a 1-14" twist rate will serve you well and give you the best options from 180-250gr in bullet weight.
