    Maybe? The Hutchinson show in late Sept has been a staple for 36 years, known widely as a locally run 300 table show (by the Elk's club) with lots of private dealers, much like the Wells, MN show in March. There is usually a "crocodile productions...

    AS KENS and several others above said check your twist rate if 1-10 or 1-12 you will need to go to a tougher alloy.. 98/2 would probably do well just 20 bullets cast and aged about 2 weeks would set you in the right direction or slow down your...

    shot the barrel loose? WOW ! Ruger couldn't fix it? WOW ! again. As DougGuy says, .431 seems like the size to use, if it'll fit. Hunting load, I'd use H110, work up a load for your gun, starting at Hodgdon's recomendation for a start load.

    In 9mm the number one cause of leading is not matching boolit to barrel size as mentioned above! Until that is correct you will see leading issues. A possible test would be to powder coat a small batch and try them, that increases the diameter.
