    Mag fed rifle you bet you can. However, smaller is harder, bigger is easier. .223 is a bit of a pain, but a lot depends on how bad you need it to cycle the action. I've run a lot of low level red dot loads in my SKS with cast, but it does...

    Yes. But find out what your buddies expectations are. You will not be able to load them anywhere near as fast as jacketed bullets. That means his point of impact will be different and likely accuracy will not be as good. He will also probably...

    I too agree with cp1969. Mine has only shot .32sw longs and it still shoots like a laser. Similar recoil to a .22lr with a bit more authority on the far end. 90 gr bullet vs 40. I load mine with the Lee .314 90 gr sized to fit gun. 2...

    Amazon offered me prime in an email. Did not know enough about it then to want to bite. A year later they sent another email detailing how much I would have saved on shipping if I had gone with prime. Well that convinced me. Since then we...

    I have an old Speer manual that lists Elmer's load I have tried it in a different revo and it worked well in that gun not sure or remember the accuracy but I think it was around 1500 fps from a 7.5" Ruger Blackhawk

    Agree nothing to worry about. Keep speeds below 1300 fps and get by without checks just fine.

    I would never use Lee reloading dies when Redding dies are available I try and use Redding exclusively sometimes I can't for whatever reason but given a choice I will always pick Redding

    I agree about the recoil for whatever reason it's not a heavy hitter I use it in my 475 Linebaugh and 500 Linebaugh I do get pretty good accuracy with it though

    It seems that pushing them worked I shot the best groups I have in a long time 19.0 gr w 296 with a 315 gr Lee lit up by a wlp I tried the 255 gr Keith's but those did not group that well I had started out with the bottom charge of 2400 and...

    sorry I used the unique with 255 gr Keith's hunting accuracy for me is 4" with irons at least smaller would be better but if I can aim at a spot and come within a heart sized area around it I would be happy the size of a cd @ 50yds would be...

    I use the MP boolit exclusively in my 44 magnum when I had a special I used the Skeeter load and the 503 to no end and found it to be very accurate in my Bisley Blackhawk I have had all the molds you mention and have settled on Miha's mold in...

    In a 44 magnum with boolits over 250 gr and under 325 gr how much do you think speed,or pushing the load has in the accuracy of the load. Do you find that a 44 mag does better in accuracy when you get the speed up? would a load with a 315 gr Lee...
