    if your planning on that, go with his steel or brass molds. I would also step right into a master caster and not the lee pot, they are waaaay too different for anything you gain from the lee pot to transfer over. I have 2-3 of both sitting on...

    opening the cylinder throats is easy, making them smaller is less easy. I would re-measure.

    I'd take the lead amount up 50 lbs would get you to about 3% antimony. a little tin and you'd be right near ww or isotope core alloy. me being me I would take it even further 70 lbs of lead and 5 lbs of the 30% alloy would be closer to what I'm...

    the truck gun out here is something that can rattle around a bit without you really caring about the finish. it's used to whack a yote or rock chuck when the opportunity arises. the Arisaka and Mossburg I mention above wear scopes that would...

    What is the diameter of your case neck expander? I have found that with brass springback, that an expander the same size or a thousands under the bullet size is about right. Smaller expanders can size down the bullet when seated into the case. ...

    What is the group like loading the same way but with less and more powder? in other words ....Did you try powder charges from the amount that just fills the case? And then try shooting groups adding powder two grains at a time and working up?

    You make no mention of fouling control between each shot. Either a blow tube or wet wiping will be needed to get the most accuracy out of the rifle.

    you can also take one of your cast bullets and squeeze it in a vice to 'fatten' it up; use that to check bore size and no one said you can't do this several times to develop some multiple data points (always good to see if you can get repeatable...

    Walter Laich replied to a thread Just asking ? in Cast Boolits
    I guess I never wondered about this though it is good to know I just gravitated to the softer alloys as a cast over the years. My thoughts were if it was accurate and didn't lead it was good. Now I find out there is science behind that--who...

    the 314 is well suited to the 7.65 argie round. the K-31 has a completely different throat/bore/groove dimensions than any of the others you mention, it will like a silhouette design.

    N-110 is like our 2400. in use not exact burn speed. as I remember VV put out a load manual for cast bullets and N-110 is the prominent powder used in the manual. I would contact them or find one of those manuals. I wouldn't enlarge the flash...

    lee's manual is telling you an engineer number that deals with shear stress numbers. your supporting the alloy in a steel tube. so your deformation comes from the back of the bullet going forward. avoiding that by delaying the high pressure until...

    you can cast just as fast by hand as with the machine. faster actually. your not giving up anything by buying a magma mold, they are top notch and hold up to tons of casting.

    I used to hunt whitetails with a 6 1/2" bbl. 44 mag. using 250 gr. Keith style bullets @ 900 fps. Total broadside penetration was no problem. They bleed out quick from the big holes and don't go far...if at all. One tough old doe made it 50 yds....
