    My post was really intended to be more along the lines of: 1. When using a chrono, care is needed in regard to powder position. Just one slip up with a gun repositioning can shift powder and cause that round to be 100 fps or more "out of the...

    With a big case and a small dose of Red Dot you get a high percentage of empty space. In addition to thinking about low SD, you probably need to think about powder position. I ran tests on both Promo (lower cost version of Red Dot), and a...

    P Flados replied to a thread 9mm leading in Cast Boolits
    I have pulled lots of boolits. The best I have been able to do is around 0.3565" with my Lee 125 RNFPs (these drop close to 0.3575", and I size back to 0.3575" after PC). With PC, these are marginal (OK at absolute minimum powder for Ok...

    P Flados replied to a thread 9mm leading in Cast Boolits
    FYI, As I have posted a number of times, I too am still fighting a 9mm that wants to lead. My biggest challenge may be that my lead is relatively soft range scrap, and my boolits only drop 0.357" for my Lee 120 TC mold and 0.3575" for my Lee...

    I use BLL where it works. This is mostly light duty target loads. Then again this for a LOT of target loads. It is just easier & less effort. I also shoot a lot stuff the BLL can not handle. It does take more time, but I have...

    I shoot for 120 - 150 F when I want to do my ASBB HF Red with high humidity. Above around 150 F lots of nonmetallic stuff starts being affected. This is also about the limit for an average person to hold their fingers on a hot surface. ...

    The HF red I bought is still going strong afer more than a year. I have occasional issues with it not wanting to stick. Then again, I deal with a lot of humidity issues. It really seems to gets worse when I bring cool boolits out of the...

    P Flados replied to a thread Will church save you ? in Our Chapel
    I consider the OP to something of a 'trick question'. Of course a Church has no "power to save". However, Jesus established "the church" for a reason. Remember that "faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God". For a long...

    My 1 year old 4.2" SP-101 in 327 Fed is really not all that special. It just shoots great with anything I feed it. Oh, and it needs little or nothing for care. And that is with hundreds (soon to be thousands) of rounds through it. For me,...

    Lots of book loads have 4227 with max loads as compressed loads. However, I just never like compressing powders. I tried a bunch of 4227 loads a while back bit found it to shoot great when things were optimum, but it had a down side. I found it...
