    if your planning on that, go with his steel or brass molds. I would also step right into a master caster and not the lee pot, they are waaaay too different for anything you gain from the lee pot to transfer over. I have 2-3 of both sitting on...

    it won't cause tons of pressure. 3-400 psi maybe but tons... no.

    opening the cylinder throats is easy, making them smaller is less easy. I would re-measure.

    I'd take the lead amount up 50 lbs would get you to about 3% antimony. a little tin and you'd be right near ww or isotope core alloy. me being me I would take it even further 70 lbs of lead and 5 lbs of the 30% alloy would be closer to what I'm...

    the truck gun out here is something that can rattle around a bit without you really caring about the finish. it's used to whack a yote or rock chuck when the opportunity arises. the Arisaka and Mossburg I mention above wear scopes that would...

    That should be M1906 ammunition, the stripper clips being a possible clue. Have you pulled a bullet?

    the 314 is well suited to the 7.65 argie round. the K-31 has a completely different throat/bore/groove dimensions than any of the others you mention, it will like a silhouette design.

    N-110 is like our 2400. in use not exact burn speed. as I remember VV put out a load manual for cast bullets and N-110 is the prominent powder used in the manual. I would contact them or find one of those manuals. I wouldn't enlarge the flash...

    lee's manual is telling you an engineer number that deals with shear stress numbers. your supporting the alloy in a steel tube. so your deformation comes from the back of the bullet going forward. avoiding that by delaying the high pressure until...

    you can cast just as fast by hand as with the machine. faster actually. your not giving up anything by buying a magma mold, they are top notch and hold up to tons of casting.

    back in the old days they used tin with their lead. I would bet 25 or 30-1 would be more than enough with the P/C applied. I realize a pound of tin would only make like 5-600 boolits.

    you can squish a gas check up in diameter all you need is pressure. I push 8mm checks on 8mm boolits up to 358 all the time, it's how I make 140gr gas checked wad cutters.

    no they can't. the harder alloy's are compensating for mold design. you have different states of fitment, and a design that relies totally on mechanical fitment needs a harder alloy to fight and resist the deformation acceleration and lead...

    nope it will help there too. many of the jacketed 45 colt bullets are already sized to 452. the 45 acp' bullets are generally sized to 451. I didn't even bother measuring my Ruger 45's anything. I just shoot 452 in it and it likes it. or not,...

    it's a polymer. it just isn't cross-linked like Hy-Tek is. Hy-Tek is the next experiment, and eventually powder coated jacketed bullets. I'm still working on the prep for the P/C, and will try some half jacketed revolver stuff first.. yeah I...

    That does not mean it was loaded to higher pressures than M1 ball because they weren't. They were supposed to be loaded with the M1 174 gr bullet. Notice the box does not identify it as M1 or M2 but as ".30 Ball Cartridges". They also were...

    I suggest the use of a Dacron filler instead of the wad as used in the old Lyman manual. The Dacron filler is beneficial and I use it. Many don't use a wad or filler but whether you find it beneficial depends on the weight of the cast bullet you...

    "The doubt is : may I enlarge flashole avoiding dacron filler?" The Dacron filler will still be needed for N110 to ignite and burn efficiently under that light of a cast bullet in the 7.65x53 case. The enlarged flash hole may help a little but...

    I don't think that's a "myth busted" MT Gianni. The short stubby pistol WCs shot in 18 3/8" twist barrels are not very stable past 50 yards and many times make slightly oblong holes at 50 yards. The much longer .30 caliber 311440 will be shot...

    it turns white as it oxidizes. I have been coating some of my jacketed bullets with NuFinish. it seems to cut down on copper in the barrel, but the powder fouling seems harder to clean out.

    BB shot and improved cylinder will let you get them at 35 yds. 1400-1450 fps is a good velocity to target, it provides enough energy through velocity to do the job.
