    A few mold suggestions: CBE, as they are local (but seem to offer more in ~.30cal. than 6.5mm); NOE (I may be looking at their offerings myself to feed my M 96); Veral Smith/CBE, who made a nice 140gr. mold for me years ago). Btw, Lee Precision...

    You can very clearly see where my barrel was reclined. Maybe it was reclined and then bored out as a Shotgun?

    There is enough barrel left for a low pressure, 50-70, black powder cartridge. The extractors tip will be TIG welded to make longer and then reshaped. I had to do this on a couple of my reline projects. No big deal. Can’t wait to get my...

    I also use enamel spray paint even with three coats it gives a thinner coating then P C that allows long nosed bullets to chamber into rifling easier. Specifically the Lee 170 grain in 30-30.

    No doubt as a lot of cast bullets were used by military shooters. Earliest I read of Ideal's (the mould company name) #1 alloy was in Lt. Townsend Whelen's book Suggestions To Military Riflemen (1909) originally published in 1909.

    As long as you are using a patch the ball doesn't have to be soft. It does help with terminal ballistics when hunting, though. When shooting cap and ball revolvers you need pure or you can break the loading lever.
