    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...

    atr, I've also had 2" groups @ 100 yds. go to 1" groups just by experimenting with seating depth a few thou. further in or out when i felt like i was right on top of a good load. Sometimes a combo of seating depth and sizing dia. can work...

    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.

    Tyguy95, welcome to the site! RCmaveric has given some great advice. A lot of us started out with an old coleman stove, a steel pot, a mold, some wheel weights and a casting ladle. Many tools can be found at yard sales or thrift shops. Add fancy...

    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?

    Thanks for the replies. I think I found some of what I wanted to know, shown in a photo from Buckshot. It shows the difference between the 170gr "cruise missile" and the 140gr group buy but, no dimensions. See post #5, it shows the 170gr with 4 lube...

    What markings would there be on the group buy 6.5mm mold from long ago. The group buy that I think was spear headed by member oldfeller maybe? Member 45.2.1 might have also been involved in the dimensions, as I recall. I just bid on a mold on...

    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.

    Accurate rifle and i like that scope too. I bought a 392 this summer and already want a 397 to go with it. I love these little pumpers!

    I never, ever introduce anything but a wax or old boolit lube into my bottom pour casting pot. I get the alloy melted, toss in a pea sized chunk of wax and then touch it off with a match. While it's flamed up, I stir with a metal spoon while...

    My experience is that faster powders burn hotter. Increase the time between shots to try to maintain lower barrel temps.

    I'm in the camp that says to try what mold you have before going out to get something that may or not work. It will depend on the fit to your rifles chamber and bore.

    Load the lubrisizer with Ben's Red and make it as simple or as difficult as you want. It lubes the same. I made both hollow sticks and cut strips. Great either way!
