    or turn up the air. I think I was running with about 50 lbs with the magma lube. I would rather run a little cool and more air then the other way around.

    definitely save those zinc ww's. they seem like a scrap metal to our casting purposes but they have a whole bunch of usefulness.

    like leaning an aluminum lamp against the tube. or using the hair dryer like I suggested. even with the magma heater I use a heat gun so I don't over shoot or have to wait, if it's cold in the shop.

    Charlie: you put it under the pot, then you push on the handle. my pots spout fills 2 cavity's at once, doing a 3 or 5 cavity mold can be a little bit of a challenge. that LBT would be a breeze.

    Apologise for the "nitpick" but a "fowling" shot would be from a shotgun aimed at duck or goose. A "fouling" shot is used to condition a clean dry bore before going "for record." Rant mode off...

    Do a search on this forum for "6.5 Carcano" and "Jeff in NZ". He owns a 6.5 Carcano and has been shooting lead in his for a long time and has several times passed that knowledge into the forum here.

    If the .30-30 bore is in poor condition a .32 Special may not clean up on a rebore. Also, the older pre-WW2 nickel steel barrels are problematic as to being able to get good interior finish on a rebore. Relining costs about the same when done...

    if you don't get all the alox off the powder won't stick. you might want to try another lubricant for sizing. dish soap or line pulling lube or even LEE case sizing lube. they should be water soluble and easy to get off.
