    Lagamor replied to a thread 9mm leading in Cast Boolits
    I recently had bad problems with lead ring build up in my 9 mm chamber. This would prevent me from loading anything longer than the shortest of OAL's and I couldn't shoot more than twenty before I had to clean the barrel and chamber. I powder coat...

    ................I would really advise you to slug your bore first. Lyman, RCBS, or Saeco might meet your needs but if a 'fatter' size is needed you're most likely going to have to go to NOE or Accurate. Quite a lot of work was done with the 6.5x55...

    Really interested in hearing how the back boring will affect recoil. I know the porting will make it much louder, but I'm not sure if it will affect perceived recoil. I'm not knowledgeable enough to Know for sure, but it seems to me that the payload...

    ...............The above photo is 60 rounds of 577-450 for my MkIV Martini-Henry. The MkIV has a .472" groove. In the above photo are the rounds I'd use in our ranges' monthly 200 meter "Fun" silhuette matches. The slugs are the Lee 458-405F as cast...

    ..............Well heck. Sometimes it is only dumb luck or a couple of your pals are in the right place at the right time :-) My neighbor Ralf, likes to shoot (like me) and he reloads (like me) but he doesn't cast (unlike me :-)) He is a job...

    Buckshot replied to a thread Plain Base .58's? in Muzzleloading.
    Good Cheer, the above photo was taken to show a rather obvious lube preference my 2 Band has, but that Challenger slug is about the longest I have to measure. It is 1.145" long. The NEI 500gr Target slug (solid base) is 1.010" long. The Lyman 575611...

    ..............Tough to get even a blunt 200gr RN to seat short enough to feed in the Rossi M92 357 with any kind of load at all. I HAVE shot nice groups with stout velocities for the 200 gr slugs, but the OAL's were like 1.685". I do have load data...

    For plinking ammo it doesn't make any difference. If you're trying to push the limits of accuracy or velocity, details matter. Jerry

    ..............The 'screws' to hold the handles on are NOT screws. They're "Drive rivits" and have a very slow thread pitch. They're only truly intended to go in, and NOT come out. Those of us old enough to have had experience with Chevy cast iron...

    What's gonna happen when somebody puts one of those in a S&W M10? The 38 Spl. case will handle just as much pressure as a .357 case, but there are other issues to consider. I think a better plan would be to seat the bullet in a .357 case to...
