    He can't catch a break, i hope they have him fixed up in no time. I don't have his digits or i'd send him my best wishes too. Get better soon buddy.

    Tazza replied to a thread Sizing from 515 to 501 in Cast Boolits
    The issue you'll have with bringing it down that much, even if in steps, is the lead needs to go somewhere, if you have lube grooves, it can extrude into there, but if it has none or very few, you get extrusion out the base, so if it was a bevel...

    That does make sense, a lot easier really. If it doesn't see a mould, don't drop lead. My idea was to have a "home" position, so each time it rotated, so if things got out of time, it knew where position 1 was. It was going to be a micro switch,...

    Looks pretty good to me too, still a bit more than what i can afford, i just cast as a hobby at this stage really. What seems odd to me is why they didn't program in different lead drops for each station if desired. It can turn off different...

    Primers are just under 6c each for winchester small pistol, powder would be 3 or so cents, depending on your load, then the cost of a projectile if you didn't cast your own. So it really is the way to go if you have access to cheap lead and time...

    Factory 9mm here from time to time can be dirt cheap, not as cheap as reloads, but it gets pretty close, good for people that don't shoot a lot or have time or interest in reloading. I think i have seen it down to about $15 for 50 rounds. ...

    It looks fine to me, i'd still send it. I have not had leading issues with any cast that after sizing, that there were any small sections that had exposed lead, say there was a small bump from a piece of lead being stuck to the side that was removed...

    Nice job, i hope to play around with .300BO in the coming months, see what sort of speed we can get and may need to tinker with a metalic to see if that will help with preventing leading. The idea is to keep them sub sonic, but come on, we all need...

    I found the same, i use range scrap, works great for western action projectiles, the mould fill out is just fine (not perfect), but for other sizes i do, adding a bit of lino for the tin and antimony, the mould fill out is nicer and you can see it...
