    Yes it is true the arsenals switched from the recommended extruded powder to ball powder. The residue left by the powder was a calcium/carbon deposit that was very hard. The gas piston of the M16 series is part of the bolt with the cylinder being...

    "Are you trying to say the 14 twist didn't stabilize the bullet and it tumbled causing more damage? Might be where the story of smooth bore M16's got stated." Not stating that at all. I didn't mention anything about a "smooth bore M16" either. ...

    "When that early Vietnam issue 5.56 ammo was used, and if it performed right, it blew a mighty big hole in the enemie's body that a 7.62x51 wouldn't do." Have to disagree. I was in Viet Nam in early '65 and then on to other target rich...

    Appears the cartridge photo's are with the wrong headstamp photo's? The MF FA 83 appears to be 7.62x51 made at the Footscray or Maribyrnong ammunition plant in Australia. The stripper clip on it is of M14 style. Note there is no + with the...

    you'll definitely need 2 lubes. I do up here but not as far up the heat index. you'd do well with the red/blue above 50 and something much softer below.

    yes I don't try for a heavy coat either. I did at first then realized I wasn't getting a good smooth coating. make sure you put a little lube on them before you size them. it sucks melting drilling beating them out of the die.

    I'd say it will at 50. I would modify it for the 20 end of things.

    boat paddle type marlin rifles in 375 are going for 6-650$, a nice one will fetch 7-750$ easily. the win BB's in 375 will fetch the same 7-750$ if in good shape. they didn't make that many of the 375 marlins, and they probably ain't making any...

    boolit - cast bullet- jacketed. it just simplify's things on the board. you can bump your 308's up to 311 and the Hollywood is surely capable of doing the job. they used to make a bar for the Hollywood presses you added in when using the press...

    check the diameter. I could possibly just load mine as is how is but they also drop from the mold at 3565 to begin with. I still get one that is harder to push through the size die every handful or two.

    He certainly is correct about minor alterations of the load having influences on the load. His example especially with the small capacity case of his 'cat. I found that out a long time ago in '74 when I got my 1st Oehler chronograph with the 22...

    I seat to the groove for my revolver and just over the band for the model 92. my 92 will feed 200gr swc's for the 45 acp set up the same way so it's worth a try in your marlin.

    bismuth and tin melts at such a low temperature the hard part would be getting the mold hot. but it would cast like a champ. I would invest in some larger drippers for my shot maker.

    Use an RCBS X-Die to FL size. You won't have to trim and cases will give many firings.
