    Honestly, I don't think that they are using the same mold. The ELCO bullet looked like a good candidate for a HV test by Detox a few pages back, and then the discussion turned to the differances between our two bullets, and then a test was...

    Stuffer......are you doing the "up & down" vertical mambo for 10-15 seconds after swirling for several minutes? ( a very Good reason to use screw-on ZipLop containers!) I discovered that method gives you an almost 100% coverage every time. In...

    50 vs 60 Hz DOES make a difference!!!!! Europe is all 50. And 220V in most countries. Time for a run to the dump. Buy something new. Forget cobbling together an inverter. Unless you have huge batteries or run your engine continuously, the...

    I've only ordered one mould from Tom but I doubt my results are unusual. I told him what size boolit I wanted and what alloy I would be using and the results are closer than I can measure. Boolit just barely touches the sizer. No need to build in a...

    Does it require a sine wave or can it work on a square wave inverter? And what's the maximum current draw? You can google quite a few circuit board's for inverters....:wink:

    What your gun needs for groove, NOT BORE. .001 or .002 does not matter. The GC only stops skid at the base. It should be the same size as the boolit.

    Dude! relax! This was just one test. I was simply stating that Larry followed your instructions to a T. I mean no disrespect by that, it's written a few pages back for everyone to read (post #641). I know what you're saying about not being willing...

    Finished cleaning, lubing and checking the Hawkeye today. Twist is indeed 1/12. Bore was cleaner than any other gun I can remember buying, new or used. Could not get any copper, lead, powder residue or even dust out of the bore. Bolt was a bit dry...

    Looking better but for a 265, try 22 gr. I have the 265 RD and it will do 3/4" at 50 and 1-1/4 at 100 from bags using 22 gr and if I up it a little it opens. Don't overdo it. Only thing is to not reduce 296 below starting loads. 296 is easy to...

    TXGunNut replied to a thread Crazy kaboom in Our Town
    My best guess is a simple part failure possibly coupled with another failure but it certainly looks like an overpressure event. One problem with the shed jacket theory is that the point of impact of the bullet core would have almost certainly been...

    Sorry to hear that, he's certainly had more than his share of troubles in recent years but that's over for him now. We're certainly going to miss his contributions around here and on the other sites where he shared his vast knowledge.

    I think concealed carry on our military bases is a good idea, that's why I don't see it happening. I avoid gun free (free fire) zones whenever possible. That's not an option for our Armed Services members. Sad situation indeed.

    Slug as said to find out what size you really have. You can use powder coating to gain 2-3 thou in size. Many do that rather than messing around with custom dies and sizers......much more cost-effective! I cast several 9mm slugs, PC them, size...

    It really must be alignment problems in the batches they build. In many years, I have never touched either of the adjustment screws on the 4-20's I have. Never a drip. They worked perfectly right out of the box. At least discussions like...

    One at a time gents. I want to see how the 35XCB does across the board for a lot of shooters. If it's as successful as the 30XCB, then I will put together the .338 and possibly a .323 because I feel that those two are pretty much in the bag being...
