    I wear trifocals and have no problems, just have to use the same focal each time. I mounted my lee tester in a kids microscope and it makes it so much easier to use and a lot more accurate.

    I use a WFN 150 gr cast (old group buy C312-150-WFN) cast of COWWs +2% tin which is pretty much the same alloy as you're using. I use this bullet in both my Russian SKS and a Mini Mk X Mauser. Both have 20" barrels with 9 1/2" and 10" twists. I...

    For making 45 Colt cylinder length shotshells, the parent case you want is the 7.62x54R Russian. Plan to reduce and perhaps thin the rim. If thinning is required, it can be done from the end, which will also reduce the rifle primer pocket depth to...

    For elk and moose, I would recommend nothing under 260 gr. I wouldn't even consider the 200-220 gr. range. Off angle shots may not give the penetration you want. IF you are going to push beyond factory velocities for cast, better have a good rifle...

    These are two of my peeves. Are "EAR GAUGES" those big grommets that idiots insert in their earlobes? Hate seeing people with pieces of metal protruding out of puncture wounds in their face. That includes these idiots who think their tongue needs...

    I had one of those I bought used in 1996 for $250. It was LNIB. I sold it in 2014 for $475, after having put about 2500 rounds through it, mostly castings of #311041 and #311291 flavor. It was a good, solid little carbine--and only went down the...

    Interesting thought. The bore looks smooth on all sides in the throat area and the cast I did would confirm. However, that axial ridge which corresponds to a groove in one land could be the culprit. Also, there is that roughness at the chamber...

Μολὼν λαβέ; approximate Classical Greek pronunciation [molɔ̀ːn labé], Modern Greek [moˈlon laˈve]), meaning "Come and take them" is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae.
