    Note* everything I load with lead is kept below 1000fps. that could be where we differ in the opinion. generally diameter and shape are king of how things work, but it depends on the launch. I don't shoot much of my lead below 1,000 fps except...

    if it's a random issue and you have eliminated the cases being mixed, or different lengths etc. then I would look at the boolit itself. you might just have one cavity that isn't quite closing all the way and it is a bit larger in the exposed...

    Actually, if rebarreling you can get an '06 to shoot that well and that fast. Same suggested 14" twist with a 26" barrel using slow burning powders (4350, H4831, RL19, etc.) you can push the same NMT 1" long cast bullets from 700 to 2500+ fps. ...

    Not really, I've shot the load shown above to 500 yards and it held 1.5 moa for 8 out of 10 shots. The other 2 shots sretched to to 2 moa. The 30 XCB at 2600+ fps holds sub 2 moa to 600 yards. Clays sitting on the 300 yard berm (315 yds) are...

    all those little notched pieces have a letter on the end of them. the notch lined up on a bar to make the letters line up into words. the type setter would lay it all out. when I buy lino-type from our print shop here it comes as spacers or the...

    key holing is a function of stability. your either spinning the boolit fast enough to be stable or you ain't. the grip on the rifling will determine whether your spinning the boolit enough or not. too small = skidding and non stabilization. ...

    Jim that's more like what I use. over speeding a large meplated boolit into flesh and bone will give you a very dead animal. you'll have to look for some of the parts and pieces but it will be dead. I remember hitting a grouse too far down when...

    the white is lead oxide it generally forms from being exposed to water. I do a lot of term storage of normal lubed boolits, 5 gallon buckets do a great job. if I were to put some stuff up for true long term storage I would just do a coat of...

    I probably shop a bit weird. if stuff is on sale I calculate how much we could use by the expiration and buy that much. we might go to 2-3 different stores when we are down in town and sometimes go back to the first to pick up those 3-4 things...

    I have a lot of experience with the 311041, 311291, 311466 and the 30-165-FN XCB in 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 16" twists. You might do a search on the RPM Threshold. Also consider the cast bullet match shooters of yesteryear and still today use 14"...

    blow bye in the throat will show more smoke than bout anything else. Unique is a different animal than most other powders out there the way it burns in the barrel is a whole bunch different than how it burns in the open. it also burns in the...

    'up to' depends on too much for the alloy alone to dictate that. up to 2700 is easy. up to 2200 and hitting the target is another story. I worry more about absolute fitment and manipulate my alloys towards that end rather than an final bhn. a...

    left one. tin is the answer to all undersized molds a nice oblong shaped sorta right sized too big boolit is exactly what I want from my molds. i'll take the time to make nice round ones the correct size. do what you want.

    Time. things happen over time. 1 they reached their final BHN. 2 antimonial alloys can grow larger slightly over time. the other possibility is the tumble coating was just enough increase to make them work.
