    I like Run's Simple lube too. It's so quick and easy to make and worked very well over a wide temp. range. This may or may not help in your case, but i left out the lanolin option when i made mine and didn't have any problems with flyers in the...

    You can also heat it up to casting temperature and rub with a cold ingot.

    Congrats on your deer and the clean kill. I never shot the 44mag. In a rifle, but I did use imr4227 for hot cast loads in my handguns way back when. I used h110 for jacketed. The 4227 seemed more accurate for cast loads. I always loved the smell of...

    GRRRRRR! I caught the shim shifting a bit that i put under the bbl. even though it was jammed tight in there. I guess from shooting vibrations, although that seems to be very light with these guns. Anyway, drove out the pump arm and bbl. band...

    I used to hunt whitetails with a 6 1/2" bbl. 44 mag. using 250 gr. Keith style bullets @ 900 fps. Total broadside penetration was no problem. They bleed out quick from the big holes and don't go far...if at all. One tough old doe made it 50 yds....

    I tried one more time on shimming the bbl. band. I put in one extra piece than before and it's holding and shooting great. Guess i've got a bandaid on it for now till i do a more permanent fix.

    I had read that some folks lost a bit of velocity in the 13xx guns past 21" and that 14 to 18" was about optimum. I also asked crosman about buying a bbl. for one and was told you have to buy the gun from the custom shop now to purchase bbls. for...

    Do those mods include a longer bbl? I called crosman the other day and was advised i could "probably" hit 540 to 560, maybe even as much as 580 fps. with just a 21" bbl. on 10 pumps. Unfortunately i've got a 1377 that has developed a bit of slop...

    Tin is the enemy of heat treating. Over about 3% or 4% tin and your attempts at heat treating are sabotaged by too much tin. Your heat treated bullets will not achieve the same hardness and they will soften much faster over a short period of time. ...

    You don't need a grain refiner to heat treat. It will just take a little longer to achieve maximum hardness. The risks involved to add them to your alloy isn't any where near worth it. Look for pewter for the tin content. Food service pewter,...

    Yes, I think the pin holes were drilled a bit oversize, or the pins are a bit under sized. Either way some play has developed. I had thought of maybe replacing the roll pins with solid pins. Thankfully it doesn't seem to move on it's own while...

    After almost 3000 shots, my 1377 has developed a fair amount of play on the bbl. band. Most of the play is from the front sight being in the upright position, to being tilted slightly left if you wiggle it by hand. The band was very tight when...
