    My nephews used to shoot trap with me all summer so it saved me a bundle on ammo, now they are grown with families of their own and scattered across the country we rarely have time to shoot anymore. It could use a new advance pawl, Hornady has them.

    I also paper patched both cast and jacketed 338 bullets for use in the 348 but that was something of a, "see if I could do it" kind of event. I did not do it for hunting and moved on.

    The one I used was the old NEI (Walt) made a 348 that went 235gr and was outstanding in my two Winchester made M-71's. 25gr SR-4759 or full power loads were great. I am sure there are other molds but that is the one that worked well for me. The...

    the 1.5 lbs of antimony you add would be 3% of 50 lbs. base your weights in parts of 100 lbs total to come out at percentages. if you look at how antimony hardens lead versus a BHN scale thing look weird. 12% antimony gives 22 bhn, 5-6%...

    try filling from back to front. I see a big difference in mold temp just from the front cavity getting poured first then sitting under the pot while the back one is last and is out in the air more. switching up the cadence to keep the alloy in the...

    go with the cheaper alternative. if you got antimony you got choices and can manipulate the BHN.. if you go with tin you just add more $ to the pot.

    practice. just doing a few more sessions will get you up to speed. stop admiring the boolits and just go after seeing them a few hundred times your eyes will go straight to where they need to be and you can get back to keeping heat built up in the...

    put your alloy temp back down. more like 700 is all you need 725 maybe if your loafing along. all that lead your putting in the cavity's is heat, keeping the mold up to temp should be no problem. you just need to get all the cutting oil out of...

    ...............Getting a MLer shooting is like other firearms in that trying historic loads, and then modifying things like powders, loads, lubes, and different boolits. It's all fun. I have a couple 58 cals. One is a Zoli Zouave which I have...

    The 350 Rem looks looks a fire plug. Always wanted one to play with. About the same capacity as the Whelen. I have had a few Whelens.

    My entry 1.25 was a fat finger error. The first 2 and decimal point lost out. Good catch - Sorry for the confusion. The Starline 38-55 brass is available two ways, or better, two lengths. 2.130" is the correct length for 32-40 and 38-55 as you...

    about that. I like to start out a touch hard and bump the Vaseline until it gets where I want it. I like my lube to be about as hard as silly putty with a little sticky to it.
