    Well, I won my first 310 on gubroker and received it today. Listing said 310 handles and 270 die kit. Well, we are missing the muzzle resizer die and the expander ball is way too big. I am on the hunt for either the 278 or 280 neck expander ball and...

    Loaded 200 380 ACP with Lee 358 105 SWC with 1.8 grains of Red Dot. Cleaned my boolit seating die, full of lube from a maladjusted star lubersizer.

    Its not. Dougguy here on the forum reams barrels and cylinders. Shouldn't be a problem to have the cylinder on your Blackhawk opened up to accept the same ammo the Rossi likes.

    Loaded 600 9mm. In the last 4 weeks, I have loaded almost 6000. The 550C has been a big help, lots more room than the SDB. My goal is 10000 loaded rounds. That will give me time to do some smelting and casting to get ahead of reloading. They are all...

    sigep1764 replied to a thread What am I missing? in Cast Boolits
    Starting loads in my Lyman 49th Edition for a 120 grain TC boolit is 5.0 of HS6 at 1.11 OAL. For a 120 grain round nose, it is 5.0 grains of HS6 at a 1.065 OAL. Since you are starting with a heavier boolit, I would back this off to 4 grains and work...

    That's funny! Glad you had the wherewithal to give the eye to the bolt. I have been looking at the PSA 9mm too. Hows it been running now the brass is being snagged?

    I just got done with load development for my LCP. Its a snappy pistol, after 100-150 rounds, I have a blister on my trigger finger. I use 2 grains of Red Dot at .925oal behind the Lee 358 105 SWC. It feeds reliably but I have to swab the chamber to...

    Got lucky today. Went down to my normal scrap yard today for some wheel weights. 65 cents a pound. Turns out they had half a 55 gallon drum of Lyman ingots marked WWR which I assume is two parts wheel weight and one part range lead. They ring when I...

    I buy GladWare plastic containers to keep lubed boolits in. They are clear so I can see which type of boolits they are. Be sure to drop an already lubed boolit back through the die every ten or twenty handle pulls to keep the throat slicked up. They...

    Hey Lloyd, I have been curious about the PSA 9mm for a long time now. Done lots of reading. Seems one is only to use their hybrid bolt carriers in their lowers for clearance issues. I don't know how it affects the pistol, but supposedly their bolt...

    You don't have to carry on an empty chamber with these if you don't want to. The have notches on the cylinder in between the chambers for the firing pin to rest in. Keeps the rims clear of the firing pin and the cylinder from rotating. If your NAA...

    Well, you could cast fast and burn it off. Or at least get it hot enough that you could wipe some of it off. Those boolits look like they are starting to frost on the sides from the heat of the mold and the melt. I can only see wrinkles on the tops...

    Cast projectiles get stored in Gladware containers. Loaded ammo gets thrown in ammo cans, a 1000 to a can. This is for 9mm and 380ACP.

    Looks like lube from the pins or the sprue plate has migrated into the vent lines to me. What happens to the film when you scrub it with dawn or brake cleaner with a tooth brush?

    Hold on, maybe I misread this. You measured the the slugged barrel at 432 and sized the boolits at 432? Shouldn't they be sized bigger for better sealing? Say size them at .434?

    Anyone else think it might be due to Tin's quality to flow easily? Might be that they think it might cause the pot to drip? Hahaha!
