    He explained it above. The shiny spot in the photo is flat spot on the boolit where it engaged the rifling. It's shiny because it reflected the camera flash. Not because the powder coating was scraped off. Motor

    If you read the OP's post above what you see in the photo is NOT a scrape. It's a flat spot that is reflecting the camera flash. I think he also said there are more of them around the boolit. The "continuation" is more or the same flash. ;) ...

    Just a another response to one of your earlier statements about worry over sizing and scraping PC. Are you aware of the "hammer test" ? This is where you take one of your powder coated boolits and hammer it into a cube. When you are done your...

    Looking more closely at your photo it looks like you have plenty of room to seat deeper without the ogive being below the case mouth. .311" should be good. I size all my boolits for .308" groove diameter .311 Seat your boolits so the point...

    Yep. This is another reason why I like the Lee 160gr 2R TL. Even when powder coated it's profile does not interfere with the lead. (The part of the chamber where the rifling starts) I do flat point them for use in tubular magazines. I really...

    I use the "small drum" in my Uniflow. I'll be honest though I love Unique it and Bullseye are my two "go to" powders but they, Unique more than Bullseye, do not dispense as accurately as finer granule powders. I have seen +/- 2/10 grain but not...

    I think a better question would have been: What pistol brass and in what caliber should I avoid? ;) Honestly. Unless you are someone shooting thousands of round a year in competition I don't know how you could really tell which is "best" ...

    Motor replied to a thread Bolt action 30/30 in Hunting with CB's
    I use the Lee 160gr 2R TL in several 30 and 30+ caliber rifles including 30-30. I even made a trim die that I use to flat point it for tube magazines. I've always got good accuracy both sub sonic and super and both lubed or as I now use them, powder...

    Motor replied to a thread Bolt action 30/30 in Hunting with CB's
    There's no doubt 30-30 in a bolt action is very nice besides being inherently more accurate then your typical lever action the fact that most do not use tubular magazines mean you can safely shoot pointed bullets or boolits which opens up your...

    I use the Lee 102gr RN .356 for .380 and of course 9mm. I have say though it was very difficult to get it to shoot from 9mms without lead fouling. That however was completely resolved when I switched to powder coating. I'm even using them sized .356...

    I've experienced this bulging at the base you describe crimping aluminum checks on the Lee 55gr .225 going base up. The bottom of the checks come out with a shallow dome shape. I personally don't use gas checks for any pistol boolits. I bought a...

    When I used lube I used to size them .358" and never had any issues. It also worked out well because I actually shoot some of the 9mm boolits in 38spl/.357 I also used to use 15BHN alloy for them. Since I switched to powder coating I'm finding...

    What's really amazing is most people know that brass does spring back but fail to realize that this spring back occurs in both directions which of course means any attempt to crimp brass onto a bullet like a taper crimp does not create a functional...

    Motor replied to a thread Remove Live Primers in Cast Boolits
    This is unreliable at best. Penetrating oil does not reliably kill primers. It's most effective on the compound that is between the cup and anvil which is difficult to get to because of the main compound sealing it off. I have removed live...

    Here is a little trick I learned from accidentally mistaking a 9mm sizing die as a 9mm FCD with post sizing ring. If you are going to melt down the boolits after you pull them, remove the de-capping rod from your size die and run the cartridges...

    Motor replied to a thread Throat or bore in Gas Checks
    Good advice above. I do something similar for my 91-30. My mould drops just over .313" so I use a .314" push through die to crimp the gas check. It has always worked well. Well not always the gas check diameter was marginal but I set up the mold...

    It's not a perfect solution but you can neck only size in any die that has the correct size neck section and will accept the case that you want to neck size. An example: I use my 300 Rem SAUM sizing die to neck only size my 7.5x54MAS brass. The...

    I tried base up. It makes the bottom rounded. I tried them anyway. Then I used something to flatten the bottom of the checks. Same poor results. These were on the Lee 55gr .225 I've also had poor results with aluminum checks on my 7.5x54MAS ammo....

    I've seen this discussion about percentages many times. I've also read them many times. This is how I understood it: The 3% rule pertains the "listed start loads" As in don't reduce the listed start loads by more than 3%. The 10% rule comes...
