    that is true.^^ my 041 easily makes 311 but it ain't a new one. I size mine to 310 but only 2 of my rifles will shoot it worth beans. one really likes it and the other tolerates it, probably because of the load I'm using behind it.

    runfiverun replied to a thread something i did in Cast Boolits
    lots of cases make pretty good bullets for other calibers with some up/down manipulation. 380's are fairly close for 375 bullets, 5.7 brass can be made into 30-31 cal rifle bullets, the new 17 Winchester rim fire is almost spot on for 270/7mm...

    I finally updated my deer rifle to the 30-06. I figured I better get with the times and quit using the 7x57 now that the Mule deer have finally spoke with their white tail cousins and got bullet proof. the Elk haven't figured out how to do that...

    a bit more heat will help. there used to be this crazy guy that run around Africa with powder in his right side pockets and round balls in another one. he would re-load by grabbing a handful of black powder and dropping it in the barrel then ram...

    you can just buy the dies right here from BT Sniper. a 180gr 358 cal boolit for a core and an annealed 40 short and weak case and you get a 44 mag bullet. flat point-hollow point you can even notch the nose to look just like an XTP. I shoot them...

    the 9's I have seem to do just fine sized to 358. an alloy similar to 1% Tin and 3% antimony is just about right for target type loads. I drop it in water from the mold and use it in my rifles. if I needed harder for a hand gun I'd drop them in...

    I just run the 40 case up on the flair tool a touch and slip fit it in the 44 and 45 cal cases so it is a friction fit. you can pour some lead in the case or not it will fly like a shuttlecock. I can assure you trying one in the 450 mag case...

    the next step is to decide what you really want from the rifle. more accuracy? if so then playing with boolit diameter and BHN and the lube is your next step. 100% operation? then moving to a slower powder that provides lower pressure but more...

    you just barely want a film in there. too much lube and you will blow it out the barrel. this leads to other issues like poor accuracy and just leaving a mess behind on/in the gun. you can stiffen up the lube to fight what is left behind but...

    1-8 is fine. 1-9 will stabilize a 57 no problem. 3 of us were shooting home swaged 57's at ground squirrels yesterday made using .650 jackets. I was also shooting my 64gr .704 jackets at rock chucks and ground squirrels in my 1-8, they both...

    runfiverun replied to a thread Lead type in Cast Boolits
    20$ a pound is bad enough. adding it to 100 lbs of alloy is a lot easier to swallow. than needing 5 lbs of it to get near the same thing. now granted you do not need 20-1 for many of those calibers. and could get by on 30 or even 40-1 but...

    use a little oil. you can even roll it up and down your pant leg if you don't have a drill. with a drill 20 seconds is probably plenty of time. just out of curiosity why 457? most 45-70's are more in tune with 459-462 or even 464 for many of...

    you might could set that back cavity up on the pot edge to soak up a little more heat or pour a big sprue puddle over it. just a bit more heat on that one cavity could really help.
