    A note about those Lee R.E.A.L. boolits. If you load them bare with lube, and the accuracy is just so-so, try cloth-patching the bottom driving band. It affords a better seal and improves accuracy. A fellow told me about that after I had almost...

    yeahbub replied to a thread 30-30 in Cast Boolits
    What boolit and diameter are you using? Where is the damage taking place, crushed case mouth or collapsing shoulder, or both? When you say Lee sizer, is it a collet neck sizing die or a conventional full length sizing die? Is the neck...

    Paco describes loads in his article "357 Magnum and the Literature" that in my '92 I don't think I can reach, probably due to chamber/bore dimensions, but I did develop some stout working loads by the time I achieved pressure limits I don't care to...

    I did an experiment some years ago sizing .490 round balls through a .452 Lee push thru and loading them in .45 ACP over a plinking load of red dot with a card wad and lube cookie to provide some lubing action. I used 541 (Emmert's) for that...

    When I trim too short, I just go back and trim them longer. . . . .

    This isn't about mismatched ammo, but scary incompetence all the same. About thirty years ago, an acquaintance showed me a fine new acquisition he had attained, a very nice (long) WW1 Mauser, roller coaster sight and all, almost not a mark on it. I...

    I got an ejector assembly a few years ago. It was a leftover and didn't work very well. I went back to using a dead-blow mallet. With a smidge of lube, ejecting boolits become much less of a chore, typically a faint film of pan spray coating. I...

    Outpost, have you sent those vaqueros back to Ruger to get those cones fixed? It's really interesting that you shoot .45's through them and still get good accuracy. Any leading? I suppose they're not really stout loads. I have an Old Model...

    yeahbub replied to a thread Solar Electricity in Our Town
    A co-worker got set up with solar panels at his house as a personal experiment. A very handy fellow he is. One thing he mentioned that cooled my zeal for the idea was the difference in price between what you pay when YOU buy a KWH and the money you...

    It depends on what sort of lapping chore you're trying to accomplish. Slug your barrel to determine what it's condition is, so you know if you've made progress. It's common to find a "reverse taper" condition where it's tight at the breech and...

    I vote for Carnauba Red, but with cooler weather, you'll want a heater. A heat lamp works well for this. For full velocity rifle, I use MTL, which is a red wax and Teflon blend, slightly easier to move than CR. If you're set on making some of...
