    My brother in CO. picked one up at Walmart for $35.00 a couple of months ago, and it has become his favorite very quickly. They have been $45.00 here, but today i was in a local Walmart and noticed the new $35.00 price here also. I was stocking...

    How about water dropping the boolits straight from the mold into a bucket of cool water? It should almost double your hardness after waiting a few weeks for maximum age hardening. The price is right.

    Okay, Thanks Multigunner, I thought that might work, at least for hunting where only occasional shots are being taken. Those chrony nos. you posted are pretty impressive indeed for a co2 pistol.

    Multigunner, Not trying to drift your thread, but i see you shoot a lot of co2. I don't own a co2 gun at this time, but have read they don't perform well when the temps drop. I was just wondering if a guy was attempting hunting in cool or cold...

    Looking forward to the pics. Sounds like a neat airgun with the bbl. swapping ability, but one that i'm not familiar with. Sounds like the one you have in .177 is super accurate too.:grin:

    Yes, most fishing sinkers are lead but, I live in a state where they must be non lead like zinc. Stoopid loons eat em! You can also use muzzle loader balls, roof flashing or most stick on wheel weights (SOWW).

    I believe I just got the Lee, Oldfeller 6.5x55 mold from evilbay yesterday. I bought this for use in my customized Swedish Husqvarna M38. Loaded to an O.A.L. of 2.855", the boolit marks evenly around the base of the nose showing the fit to the...

    My FR8 is my favorite rifle for just about everything. I've done well with the Lee 312-155-2R but, like the Lyman 314299 better. This rifle has shot upwards of 30.000 rounds of cast boolits from it, not to mention the jacketed bullets. Sorry, mine...

    From the video, I noticed that you didn't scrape the sides and bottom well. I flux three times with sawdust to clean the alloy, lighting it off with a match each time. I stir and stir while scraping the sides and bottom. Then each time gently moving...

    Might try sizing .359 or .360 just to see if it makes a diff. Mine likes .360, but shoots very well at .359 too. .360 fills the throat area better in mine.

    Not looking to push the sound barrier with it, but just a bit flatter 50 yd. trajectory. I have found that with a shoulder stock attached, i shoot my 1377 offhand just as well as my 392. It fits me just right and is even lighter and handier than...

    That's a nice little increase with just 5 more inches of bbl. HHmmm, hadn't really considered the over taxing the pump mechanism thing. I've seen several reports on the "new" p series 1322s hitting 500 fps. with 13 to 14 gr. pellets right out of...

    Could you be more specific about your boolit? You state that you're using a "250 gr NOE FN gas-checked sized .358" but, I can't find any reference to it in the NOE catalog.

    The 6.5x55 is a tough one to start casting boolits for and learning to reload, all at the same time. There's no shame in first learning the basics of reloading good, safe ammo using jacketed bullets. The 6.5x55 shines with about any jacketed bullet...

    A question for some of you who have done valve, port, and piston mods on the 13xx. What kind of velocity increase could I expect from a 1322 from these type mods, but keeping the stock bbl?

    I was looking rather hard at a 2240 the other day. I think that would be my pick if i was getting into co2 guns. It sure seems to have a lot of good reviews.
