    BE-86 flips back and forth between unique and herco in burn rate, and it's flash suppressed. power pistol lies right on top of be-86. if I ever empty that red metal can of Herco the jug of 86 sitting there will be going in the 357 cases.

    IC and F was very common in the 20's time frame. IC would be almost dead on and Full wouldn't be quite Full with the wadding they used back then. a good smith with the proper inside gauge should be able to ream the choke to IC in about 20 minutes....

    EMC45 replied to a thread tennis elbow in Casting Equipment
    Mine flared up a few years back from shooting about 100 rounds of 429-421s over around 19gr. Hercules 2400. I was getting ready for deer season and I was dialing in My 7.5 inch RSBH. Didn't see any deer. My elbow hurt for a couple months afterward.

    the most penetration through bone I have ever got was by using a .0030 thick copper wrap on a cast bullet and slowing it waay down to 2350 fps. that only made it 8"s through the shoulder and spine and through the other shoulder.
