    Flat side molds can be made from Lee blanks. Good results are usually going to be a little more involved than using a simple drill bit. My latest flat side did use a Lee blank. It is a 165 gr 30 cal. My favorite flat side used a...

    Froggie, I agree. The high rating for me is mostly just a nice comfort zone thing as I work up loads. Folks that "work up loads" for a gun that has a low rating and no extra margin are probably fooling themselves if they think they can...

    I just looked up the SAAMI web page (ANSI/SAAMI Z299.3 – 2015). Max 327 Fed average service pressure is 45,000 psi. Average proof is 64,500 psi. Maximum average 32 H&R service pressure is 21,000 cup. From what I understand, actual 45,000...

    No binding at all. For the few weeks, I was scrubbing lead out of the bore. The solution was to "adjust" my mold and my sizer to get 0.315" boolits (0.3145" throats). After I fixed the leading, the only "cleaning" I have done is a very...

    Trying to "use up" 4# of titegroup with a 73 gr boolit in a 327 sounds pretty ambitious to me. Have you thought through how many rounds/week and years it will take. For light loads (say 2.8 gr) 4# will do 10k :Fire::Fire: My suggestion is to...

    TCFAN, Nice groups. I am guessing 4 - 5 MOA. Looks like you have a real winner. You can not do much better than that for a target practice load. I have only used iron sights with my SP101 and have probably not done better than 6 - 7 MOA. ...

    Cabellas has em on sale again - $20/brick, special on shipping $5 with code (57tents). I needed a variety, did 10 bricks small & large pistol, 6 bricks of small rifle. This order cost me a little more than I expected as they added in $36 for...

    Nope. Factory grips. Purchase was late last year.

    My new toy. A 165 gr for my 30 Herrett and IHMSA. I made this one the easy way, I used a Lee "blank" mold. I will probably do the other cavity as a 100 - 110 spitzer for chickens / pigs with the 30 Herrett.

    I got my 4.2" SP 101 327 with the intent of working up a "rimfire alternative" for high volume - minimum cost per round load for standing target practice. I was hoping I could make it shoot light boolits. Turns out it was really not that hard. ...

    Porting does not affect how uniform the gas escape is as the boolit clears the crown. It is the gas escaping as the bullet clears the crown that can produce uneven reaction forces on the base of the boolit. Any uneven forces at the base tend to...

    I have worked with two individuals with poor hand strength. My wife and her friend both have real struggles. We ended up with a Ruger LCRx 38 for my wife. The goal was something she could shoot at the range when she feels like going with me. ...
