    I keep a tote in the back of my truck. When i go to the range i add a few bucket fulls. That way i am taking more lead than i am giving them. When the tote is full i melt it all and make some ingots. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Rocket science no, one of the trickier pistol cartridges IMO yes. As stated above so eloquently, expect consistency and you will be disappointed. You need to approach this on a gun by gun basis. Trying to take shortcuts will get you stuck in...

    In my opinion, the cannelure on the bullet is necessary, especially for the taper crimped bullets. But, also for any roll crimped cartridges. I don't cannelure any of my rifle bullets, just because I never crimp those. The friction on the inside of...

    Your system of down 9mm cases to 380 auto length, and stuffing in a 105 grain cast core (I actually use a 100 grain mold, and use pure lead, which gives me the 105 core, plus the trimmed case yields a 165 grain bullet.) is EXACTLY how I do it. Nice...

    Use a bullet stability calculator. There are numerous on the web. Then just plug in the bullet length and velocities you plan on shooting and your local weather. See if it works. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
