    I have just started using the NOE 311-195 K31 mold and it fits my chamber very well because of the tapered nose. Looking forward to testing for accuracy. At this time I'm using 2400.

    skeet1 started a thread NOE K31 bullet in Cast Boolits

    skeet1 replied to a thread I heard a thump..... in Our Town
    I, myself have done this same thing on a number of occasions. The way the drug laws are enforced in most of the courts makes it not worth the effort. Ken

    skeet1 replied to a thread WC860 In MilSurps? in Military Rifles
    I have been shooting WC 872 in my 03-A3 with that same bullet and I very pleased with it. I see no reason that WC 860 wouldn't work just as well. My load comes to about the base of the bullet seated to the crimping groove with a bit of dacron on...
