    I was joking same as the other times, they really need some sort of sarcasm font. Larry threw out a whole pile of data, stuff hard to argue with, well for most people anyways. I wish I had the capability of measuring pressure. All I can do is go...

    I was messing with some standard pressure loads for a conversion cylinder. I had not gotten to 2400 yet. Its in the books for those kinds of loads. I stopped at 5744 as I finally found a use for the lbs on the shelf. But cant imagine 2400 would give...

    It may be less of a regulation thing, than simply the way things are headed, they sell all copper bullets for all sorts of calibers now. Some want them for regulations, some for other reasons. But there could be an advantage to all copper 22lr....

    I am using up what hornady I have before switching to gator checks. Use the hornady in my 54r. They say 30cal, but even 309 is no further from 31cal than 311 is.

    All the 22 lr set ups you have to decide, heavy subsonic or not. The fast twist barrel that makes those 60gr Aguilas work, may not like anything else. Gun that likes other 22 wont shoot the 60gr. No idea on the drop in set ups for an AR on what...

    Tackleberry41 replied to a thread Poor results in Cast Boolits
    Some guns just do not like cast. I have a Stevens 30-30 bolt gun, it drills jacketed bullets, not so much with anything cast. Same bullets in another 30 cal are fine, its just that rifle.

    I have not seen where the hornet is as loud as a 223. Part of the report is the powder, and a hornet uses half what a 223 does. Bullet weight and profile is another part of it, smaller lighter bullet makes less noise as it crosses the sound barrier....

    That is the thing about the FN pistols, they are ready to go. Usually I get a gun, take it apart, start fixing stuff the factory didn't. Never felt that urge w the FN, its great as is, no need for upgrades. I see how people love glocks, buuut how...

    We get different pressure and load data from companies in the US using the same equipment, much less a whole different method of measuring it in Europe. Apparently the Russians never even bothered with it as someone had to reverse engineer tokarev...

    I have found with hard alloy you can push PC just as fast as jacketed. I have been running 250gr cast in my Rossi lever gun, at 1800fps. I have shot 55gr PC out of a 22 hornet at 3000fps. And my 300 win mag does really well with a 230gr cast at...

    I can think of at least one time no lube grooves would be great. Neck tension on a 357 sig is key, not so easy to do with a lube groove. But I hate to tear up a NOE mold to get rid of them. Guess should just buy them that way as only thing I use...

    If you had access to a lathe, you could make a new piece for the mold. Thats what I did with a Lee mold, the .575 minie. Its not made as a shotgun slug. I made a new base piece that shortens the skirt to get the right weight. Simply filling the base...

    I own a two T38s and a Type I Carcano and from my experience, the T38s have looser chambers and bigger bores than the Type I. I have had to separate my brass between the three rifles as the brass fired in the T38 still in 6.5x50 (I converted the...

    They just happened to have 2 in the case at the local shop, not seen any since. He orders what sells, and probably took a while to sell the FN. Im the one who buys 'weird guns' as it was described. But I still have my first autoloader pistol, an...

    357 sig is one of those circular arguments. Why isnt it more popular? Well most shops carry little of it, and its quite a bit more expensive. Industry will say, its more expensive as few buy it. Where consumers say they avoid it due to cost. So...

    Will imagine it would be impossible to stabilize that 100gr in anything going that slow. Its just to long. Full power is the only way it will work. Working w subsonic, you really really need a chrony. I messed w it before I had one. And they...

    I use that NOE bullet in 30-30, fast twist barrel, basically same as a 300AAC. It works in my 7.62x54r and my 300 win mag. I tried the Lee, worse bullet ever made.

    It depends on the bullet. I tried 62gr FMJ pulled bullets I had, not stable, the boat tail makes them to long to be stable. A spitzer 60 gr works fine, .750in seems to be the limit. Get up over 60gr not easy to find them in flat base. Im not doing...

    The data is out there, usually not in books, but in forums for competitive shooters. Lighter bullet, less recoil. Might need a spring change to cycle such loads.
