    wmitty replied to a thread Plastic Boolitz in Cast Boolits
    I bought some of the speers in the early eighties for a Blackhawk .357 and was disappointed to find the plastic projectile was smaller in diameter than the land diameter of the revolver. I shot one at the door of my International Scout and was...

    Thought I would go ahead and say something about the concrete. I spent 24 years as a construction inspection with Tx Dot. We were taught the “truth” about Portland cement concrete. The strength and quality of pcc depends on ratio of water to cement...

    Since you are using a mike to measure the groove diameter, why not just measure the boolit diameter after it goes thru the sizer? Your lapping the sizer will go pretty fast if you use fine grit valve lapping compound and roll your boolits in it to...

    It would seem that the unsupported nose would give you an accuracy problem on the boolit with the short bearing surface. Am I understanding correctly that the diameter of the bearing surface at the base of the boolit is .410” ? If the groove...

    wmitty replied to a thread problems with a 32 spl in Cast Boolits
    To answer your initial question, yes. I use this design in both a marlin .32 special and a zastava 7.92 x 57 with good accuracy in both. I’m out of town at the moment, but will mike the boolit and give its dimensions (with the alloy I use) tomorrow...

    Thanks for taking the time to walk us thru the calculation of core length at “x” diameter of core. I sat down a couple of weeks ago and started going thru the gymnastics involved and then going from specific gravity of lead to grains of lead and I...

    You might try using Ben’s liquid lube (BLL) and a lee push through sizing die to seat gas checks. Not familiar with that particular NOE design but it seems to be very easy to damage a boolit with a lubrisizer if you’re trying to reduce as cast...

    I have a lee six cavity for their 55 grain .224 design; think I’ll try drilling the bottom and re-locating the sprue plate. I am looking for a 55 gr swaged bullet so roughly a 45 grain core. I’m going to try annealing the jackets with a small...

    You asked about availability... you can check on: reloading equipment - used on e-bay and find some of the boolit sizers every so often. This is a pretty tough time to be a buyer looking for reloading equipment/dies. You also might post a want to...
