    lar45: Thanks for truly great lubes. I us the BAC lube in my Saeco lube sizer and have had great success when using it for pan lubing. BAC is pretty tacky and stays in the lube grooves better than any other I've used. Gp

    gpidaho replied to a thread Mold Conditioning in Cast Boolits
    What I've found to be an excellent lube for my moulds, both iron and aluminum is dielectric silicone grease. A little bit goes a long way and it doesn't migrate into the cavities. Can be found at auto parts stores. Gp

    It's too long but looks to function like the push rod for the Lee Bulge Buster. Gp

    Hello All: I'd like to pass along some ideas I'm working with to make the NOE bushing nose sizer a little easier to work with. First, I shortened the bullet push rod that I use from 1.320 to .780. This gives a better point of leverage on the press...

    Aeroscout;I'm going a bit off track here but pin gauges are one of the handiest measuring tools I own. I picked up a set (.250-.500) From Enco for under $100. I use them a lot and believe them to be well worth their cost. As mentioned above,...

    Please support your local gun shop even if their price is 20-30 dollars more. They most likely paid their supplier that much more than the big box sporting goods outlet did. Having someone behind the counter that knows what their talking about...

    45-70C; I add them back in as I cast like you mentioned in the first post. I rarely have less than 1/2 a pot full of lead and I don't believe adding back hot sprues makes much difference in pot temp. Just the way I do it. Gp

    I wouldn't be without an electronic scale. I weigh powder charges with a mechanical scale and use the digital as a second opinion. Mechanical beam scales are WAY too slow for weighing bullets and brass. Get yourself an electronic and enjoy it. Gp

    Reverend Al: I also own the Chiappa M1-9 carbine. I bought one because 9X19 brass if free for picking it up at my local range. Sharing notes here. Mine is on par with my 30 Carbine accuracy wise, not stellar but acceptable for the type of weapon...

    I have a couple of guns that are only slightly better behind than in front of. My 45ACP Double Tap pocket pistol and my 454 Casull 15" T/C Encore. The Double Tap is so light that the recoil likes to rip your thumb off and the Casull bloodies the...

    Like LLoyd, I use the Lee size dies for sizing and gas check seating and do PC. If for some reason your cast bullets aren't sizing as easily as you would like, just use a little Dawn dishsoap mixed with a small amount of water to lube the bullets....
