    I use "soft" lubes (Ben's Red, BLL, and sometimes Simple lube) and get a consistent light lube star on my muzzles. All three "fling off" the boolit quickly on exit...which is a good thing to me. I never find any remaining lube on recovered boolits...

    I'm guessing you were successful because you spent plenty of time reading, something many don't do. Short of a custom mold as mentioned, you'll need to size and as the addiction deepens you'll need more sizers so save yourself money and space and...

    I started back in the late 70's, had a fling going with holy black and CVA front stuffers. Bought a Lee 20 lb bottom pour and hated it. I battled with that thing for 2 months and eventually gave it away to a friend in disgust. I found a cheap...

    I am not that far down that rabbit hole. Mostly I just grab a handful of lubed bullets in my left hand and trickle them in one at a time while my right hand runs the handle. Prefered catch for me is an ice cream bucket hanging on the press...

    I did a full batch of just rice, in the steel liner, it did stick some. Also overcooked it a bit. Our best rice has always been 1 cup of rice one and a half cups of water, I use a ceramic bowl, and do it first so it can soak. Put that on top...

    Actually, removing the cost of the projectile is the best way to save money. So, you are quite welcome that we are saving you money! Come back often, and save even more.

    My main press is mounted on a big heavy bench. But I have a cheap Lee C press mounted under a table close to my casting station. There for sizing and gas checking and that is all it does. Screws need to be tightened. Some bullets I need to...

    I suspect it is all in the sausage. Salt and pepper also help, pepper in particular. My wife and I have been discovering that Cavendish greek seasoning adds a nice bit of flavor to foods that have grown tasteless with age. Might try it.

    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...

    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...

    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...
