    BE-86 flips back and forth between unique and herco in burn rate, and it's flash suppressed. power pistol lies right on top of be-86. if I ever empty that red metal can of Herco the jug of 86 sitting there will be going in the 357 cases.

    IC and F was very common in the 20's time frame. IC would be almost dead on and Full wouldn't be quite Full with the wadding they used back then. a good smith with the proper inside gauge should be able to ream the choke to IC in about 20 minutes....

    Buckshot replied to a thread Plain Base .58's? in Muzzleloading.
    Good Cheer, the above photo was taken to show a rather obvious lube preference my 2 Band has, but that Challenger slug is about the longest I have to measure. It is 1.145" long. The NEI 500gr Target slug (solid base) is 1.010" long. The Lyman 575611...

    With the jet style burner only the very center of the pot supports get red hot. I will see if I can a pic of it Monday when I brew...be prepared for LOUD though!

    I would go 25% cherry/75% hickory myself... it is one of the woods where a light touch is way better than to much. And poultry skin seems to soak up smoke faster than say a pork butt or ribs.

    runfiverun replied to a thread Soft lead? in Lead and Lead Alloys
    fluxing and reducing are necessary evils only if you want clean lead. I guess if you want a bunch of junk in your castings or a clogged spout you don't need to clean anything. one thing about pure or near pure lead is it oxidizes like crazy and...

    OlDeuce a couple days ago you were in the mid 30'sF ??, that 748 was cold man! I don't think those large pistol primers are up to the task, maybe a LR primer or a 350 CCI would get it burning. .02

    well the best you can hope for is they didn't screw up the powder type or read the powder amount wrong. I made a batch of 25-06 and transposed the last 2 numbers and ended up re-thinking things when it nagged at me. I got in a nice afternoon of...

    268 sounds about right for a x55. they don't come with square tight throats.

    the most penetration through bone I have ever got was by using a .0030 thick copper wrap on a cast bullet and slowing it waay down to 2350 fps. that only made it 8"s through the shoulder and spine and through the other shoulder.

    Exactly right! All this internet hoopala of single digit ES and single digit SD are being regurgitated by internet experts that very seldom shoot or post targets, and when they do post targets they are cropped, and we all know about that.[smilie=l:
