    1800 FPS/57 grain bullet/1:9" twist. I have yet to see a cast bullet "fly apart" or "disintegrate" due to rotational or lateral speed--at some point, they just get inaccurate, and that isn't always a gradual progression--in fact, it is fairly...

    In my 47 years of handloading, the only powders that have gone "bad" were IMR......4064 and 4198. The 4064 was a sealed can I had bought and stored for about 15 years, the 4198 was given to me and very old, but I have no idea how it had been...

    I think Gavrilo Princip used a 380 ACP to assassinate the Archduke and Duchess. Some confusion over "M-1900/32 ACP" vs. M-1910/380 ACP" has cropped up, but that's what I looked up & found.

    No experience here with cast bullets in 223 gas guns (yet). 2 of my gas 223s are 1-9" twist, 1 is 1-8". I'll sum up what I've learned so far, which is not extensive. I should also add that I am not painting/coating/powdering my castings--I size...

    Well, that's my method also but these .223's seem to wander a bit side to side...just enough to gouge a primer pocket edge if I wasn't careful. Not a great inconvenience and easily overcome, but I was surprised Dillon hadn't noticed it when...

    I haven't "explored" very far with Trail Boss. Most of my loads have been in the 90%-of-capacity realm, and I REALLY like these loads in 357 and 44 Magnum revolvers with #358429 and #429421--950 FPS and stellar accuracy. With 95% density in 38/55...

    Pepe.... just sent you a PM about a vintage RCBS sizer for your Smith and Wesson. If you want to go with a 310 tool, be advised they only neck size brass. You can do the same with your newer die by just raising the die in the tool head. The...

    I found two fellows that had 3D printed plastic inserts for the RCBS swagger, but they hadn't saved the patterns for the printers and weren't willing to make them for sale. Both the RCBS and Dillon tools have this problem.

    Use a 1/8" drill shortened to the same length as the Forster drill so it won't flex. Make a .014 thick shim to just fit around the shank to fit the hole in the trimmer. Diameter needs to be .152 - .153 to fit the RCBS trimmer.

    Ktmrider Your M94 356W should have a 12" twist so your expectations of 2000 - 2100 fps are doable with cast bullets. A couple suggestions; Your 50/50 alloy is an excellent hunting alloy, especially when AC'd and slightly HP'd. However,...

    You might take a look at the Leupold FX-II Ultralight 2.5x20. I have one on my Henry BBS Carbine in 45 Colt and really like it. The price is good too.

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.
