    BE-86 flips back and forth between unique and herco in burn rate, and it's flash suppressed. power pistol lies right on top of be-86. if I ever empty that red metal can of Herco the jug of 86 sitting there will be going in the 357 cases.

    I agree with Preacher Jim on the 22-250 parent brass. I cut back 308 Win brass and lost a lot of case volume and that caused me to have to lower my max powder use as I was popping primers with normal pressure loads with 120 grain A-Max bullets. I...

    IC and F was very common in the 20's time frame. IC would be almost dead on and Full wouldn't be quite Full with the wadding they used back then. a good smith with the proper inside gauge should be able to ream the choke to IC in about 20 minutes....

    Interesting thread... I'm not familiar with the RP9, nor am I with PC. My best results in 9mm with cast have been in NATO STANAG 4090 chamber, with conventional lubricant, shooting as large a bullet as will chamber, best being H&G#7 124 grain at 13...

    EASY way to make "spreader" loads is to drive a wooden toothpick through the crimp, mash it down as far as it will go, then snap it off and trim flush to the folded crimp with a pocket knife. My Daddy was a clever Redneck and Hillbilly!

    Minuteshaver, A long time back a company called LRP made a single stack AR 15 magazine that held 10 rounds. They folded up and DPMS bought them and produced the magazines for a while. They don't anymore. I think they were made so you could load the...

    runfiverun replied to a thread Soft lead? in Lead and Lead Alloys
    fluxing and reducing are necessary evils only if you want clean lead. I guess if you want a bunch of junk in your castings or a clogged spout you don't need to clean anything. one thing about pure or near pure lead is it oxidizes like crazy and...

    leave the mold turned over. the bullets come out that direction too. then you can use both hands to turn the mold back over. if that's you and your dumping them in a bowl try using a box or a towel then you can rest the mold on the bench some...

    OlDeuce a couple days ago you were in the mid 30'sF ??, that 748 was cold man! I don't think those large pistol primers are up to the task, maybe a LR primer or a 350 CCI would get it burning. .02

    well the best you can hope for is they didn't screw up the powder type or read the powder amount wrong. I made a batch of 25-06 and transposed the last 2 numbers and ended up re-thinking things when it nagged at me. I got in a nice afternoon of...

    the most penetration through bone I have ever got was by using a .0030 thick copper wrap on a cast bullet and slowing it waay down to 2350 fps. that only made it 8"s through the shoulder and spine and through the other shoulder.

    You really can ignore the "wrong powders, wrong bullet weights" if you use a Schuster adjustable gas plug within reason! They have them for the M1A's too.
