    I'm still looking for accuracy in the AR using the Lee 55gr but have zero issues with bullet failure even when not gas checked using powder coating. I'm shooting the Lee 160gr 2R TL sub sonic from the 300 BO (purposely not working the action)...

    I shoot a 160gr Lee 2R TL with gas check. I found 16gr Unique to be very accurate. It 1850fps. We have shot clays at 200 yards with these without any problems. Motor

    Probably already mentioned but if you call Lee they will send you the expander that is used in .303 British dies. This is what I did. Being a machinist though I took this one step further and also polished the neck sizing portion of the die so...

    Schiggi, Really nice job on the coating. What were the red and yellow colors used on the pistol bullets?

    That might have come from the target being mounted on a cardboard box and the wind was blowing at that time as well moving the box a bit.

    Still developing the load for my 91/30 so this is not a final but it may turn out to be a good load anyways if it's repeatable. I shot this 5 shot test load over the weekend using my Accurate 215 gr. FN bullet sized to .314" LARS 2500+ lube and...

    Motor replied to a thread dirty rifle barrels in Cast Boolits
    My very first Mosin Nagant was a M39 Fin. It's amazing how shiny age hardened cosmolene can look. I thought I had it clean a couple times. Then one night I started cleaning it with Hoppe's #9, Wipe out patch out and Sweets 7.62 I kept switching and...

    I always stand my bullets rifle or pistol, I also size and gas check after coating. 1. If you air cool your bullets when cast then PC them an allow them to air cool again the second time there is no change in the as cast BHN of the bullet. ...

    Like the first reply said it would likely make the job easier. I've hand drilled and tapped a lot of more precise things then a simple set screw in an aluminum mould but I've been doing stuff like that since I was a teenager. I've been a machinist...

    I'm using the Lee 340gr plain base with powder coating. I really don't know why it's a .457 when it should actually be a .459 but with the powder coating bringing up to between .458 and .459 it works really well. I do plan on lapping the mold...

    I was about to say STOP !! when I read that you ran your loaded ammo back into the size die but saw that you found out how bad of an idea that is. It totally destroys all of the neck tension because of the swedging of the bullet. Hope you get...

    PPU has been good in every caliber I've used. The only way you could have no neck tension is if the walls of the brass is under size or as posted above there is or was a problem somewhere in the sizing. Do you by chance use a neck expander...
