    Looks good! I have a possibles bag that I bought from DGW some many years ago. It's just plain smooth leather. I seldom if ever have been shooting with it as I'm restricted to a very light weight since my cancer.

    I like my 30-06 A.I. and now my 30/30 A.I. in rifle calibers. Then for handguns is 9mm and .44 mag. If I ever get another .45 Cal something I'm all set for it, whether .45 Colt or .45 acp. Shooting "mouse fart" loads to fire form brass from the...

    Trying a few loads of 11 gr Herco in a 30/30. Going to shoot them to fire form the cases... I just can't shoot toilet tissue or other stuff to fire form. I like to see holes in the target. Just wish I had some lighter boolits to load.....

    I gave up on finding custom size lube dies, at a reasonable price. I buy one close, and lap it or ream it out now. I'm tempted to go back to school just to use the machine shop. Lol Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    Here's the second group after I figured out where to put the bead. I walked it up the paster to center it. That's 2 in one hole.

    Here is a 3 round group I shot at 50 yds (off a bag) in a 20 ga Remington Express (wife's). They were Remington Slugger slugs in bulk pack from WalMart a buddy had given me. Smooth bore barrel with Carlson $12 IC screw in choke.

    I had an RCBS 400 gr. SWC pb that I used to shoot when I had my SRH. I had a 2x Leupold on it and hitting clay targets @ a measured 100 yards was easy. I believe I got my load from a two book set from one of RCBS' parent companies.

    I use that mold and lube also..... My Glocks that I had would shoot anything, as will my Ruger LC9s Pro. My CZ-75 SP-01 will not digest anything larger than .357..... As I made a pile of rounds before I bought the CZ I still have a LOT of the...

    Never did any that heavy, but did make quite a few for a .480. The mold has to be good and hot, but you know that. I used to strive for frosted boolits, when they started to take a longer time to solidify I'd turn the heat down just a little and...

    I remember when I used to get 60 pound lead ingots from Sanders lead. I had to take them to the place where my son worked and use their cutting torch to make them usable. They sure absorb the heat!

    $20-$25 for a transfer is a bargain. After running a small business I decided I'd never do it again just because of all the time you spend on accounting and paying taxes.
