    I mostly use aluminum molds. You are right that they aren't the most temp stable. I dip the corner of the mold in the melt for 20 seconds to warm it. Then I have a wet sponge that I tap the mold to every 2 or 3 cast. I watch how long it takes the...

    Rcmaveric replied to a thread Lube questions in Boolit Lube !
    I pan lubed for over a year. Using a cake cutter makes it about doable with any lube. Up grading to a lubsizer was awesome. With base line of 80ish bucks you can find a deal on here and Ebay. Just be careful of price gauging on Ebay. You will find...

    Have you actually slugged your bore or are you assuming a 308 groove? .002 over groove is very doable and sizing .002 is also doable in one pass whether with lube sizer or push through. If the mold you're looking at is a Lee, they often run at or...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Sks in Military Rifles
    The trick I learned on my pair of Mosin's and the SKS, for cosmoline, goo gone and lots of paper towels. Just keep going over it. Once the outside is bare and dry start stripping it down. Work each piece as it comes off. When I was all done...

    Good for the two of you. I got off to a late start, was 44 when I found mine, 21.5 years later it keeps getting better. Takes teamwork, and no quitting. If you are going to do it you have to truly commit to it 150%. I think that very few...

    I like a lot of calibers, unique stuff is fun. Lately I've been having a blast with .32sw longs in a pair of H&R revolvers. Today while browsing through the forums I find a Rem Rolling Block #4 for sale for 500$ in .32sw long. Yeah, match...

    I suspect a couple of signed, notarized letters would do it. Lawyer is your best bet.

    Well after reading everything Larry had written on the subject. I decided the easy answer was to stock Red Dot in quantity, and not bother with fillers. That being said I did shoot some 20 rounds with dacron, as larry suggested in my Mosin. Got...

    I have used dacron in my .270 Winchester with 4198. I used about grain and made it fluffy with bullet pushing it down. Like others i have read the possible dangers. While it did tighten my groups noticable and made them more consistent. I am more of...

    Okay, Just got off the phone with Henry Arms. I was first told by the lady that answered that the case hardened Big Boys are brand new. She first said both bbl. lengths were 1/38, but on 2nd look she verified that the 20" version WAS 1/16 twist!...

    Payment made via Paypal, man I love it when it is easy like that. I have to say I did not think I was ever really going to be able to have a Rem Rolling Block of my own. This is a dream come true. It may not be a collector, but it can dang...

    The 38/200 load had a very wide meplat, something that is going to be hard to get with a semi auto. Personally I believe the best possibility to duplicate the 38/200 load is with the 40 S&W using a 200 grain bullet downloaded for suppressor. ...

    OK, here's another mold that Miha has asked me to host for those casters building an inventory of 500 S&W Magnum molds. This mold was last made in 2011, right after the 700 T-Rex and 600 Lil-Rex molds were done. It was offered as gas checked and...

    OK, you guys have asked me for it, and Miha has given the OK. This is a repeat of the mold that was run right after the 700 grain version, back in 2011, six years ago! This will be (as it was last time) a two cavity mold, in brass....

    I'm with 35 shooter. Thin it till it pours like coke. As for being lazy, does not get much easier than BLL. I do not always size, but when I do I tumble the first light coat, then size, then lube again. When it comes to precision, some...
