    The problem with threads such as this would be folks commenting without knowing the complete story. Anyone who knows us (Staff members) know we rarely ban anyone and for a member or members to reach a perma-banned status something pretty serious...

    .............I bought a 8lb jug maybe a year and a half ago, and had yet to see much load info. I haven't used any of it yet. The Alliant handout only had 2 listings for it using the 223. Seems they spec it in that cartridge for lighter slugs (ie:...

    ..............I discontinued my custom machining business in April of 2016. The only dies I continue to sell are those (Lee & Lyman) that I have in inventory. The Lyman .432" die was by far THE most popular size by far. Those were gone by the Fall...

    Buckshot replied to a thread 8x57 bullets in Cast Boolits
    Sounds to me like finding a suitable 8mm slug will not be that difficult. Don't know who mentioned casting next to the propane tank? It seems to me that all your issues are your own. Time was when 8mm or even the so called "Fat 30's" and also...

    "Team Boolits" is separate from the Annual Server Fund Drive but in the end everything helps to keep this place running.

    .............Minuteshaver, have you slugged your rifle yet? Reason I ask (I'm gonna assume here) you have a military rifle. Slug it and see what the barrel mic's at. You can buy some cheap lead fishing sinkers for slugging material. If it so...

    .............Several outfits make moulds for the 8mm. Lee is the least expensive and offers a 175gr GC design. Then you also have Lyman, RCBS, and then Redding. Don't know what you're looking for specifically. Of the several 8x57's I have they range...

    ............I don't have any photo's because back then I didn't have a camera:-) I had cast pure lead Lee 457-405 slugs and used 20# (.004") paper to patch them in my MkIV Martini. Using my favorite load in the 577-450 which was 38.0grs of IMR 3031...

    ..............I easily converted 45-70 to 40-65 so I'd think that 45-90 to 40-82 would be the same. For me, I found the best way was to run the donor cases through the die in 4 passes. I did do a few in one pass, but the effort was a bunch. Even...
