    the wax should melt at about 120-f. you can boil it off and let it solidify on top of the water after it cools off or melt it out in an oven. if you only have an oven in your kitchen I would advise against using it. I would also advise against...

    that's how many holes I put on the side of the deer facing me. somehow I end up with 2, which makes the walk to them a whole bunch shorter.

    the cavity is from the alloy in that area freezing from hitting the cold pin. it's just like the first bunch of boolits from a too cold mold. I have seen lino-type 25 lb pigs that weigh 20 lbs from a big void in them from the alloy hitting the...

    AL means they are coated for aluminum rims. if they aren't coated they will leave a corrosion mark on the rim.

    the plain base starts to pose issues at the higher velocity's you can push the window back with good sharp bases and such but you start fighting skidding and trailing edge failure when you get up much over 1600 fps. sometimes over 1400 is rough...

    free dog swimming day at the local pool too, which means it's closing for the season. Haley is too grumpy with the other dogs to get to go anymore, and her hips are going. i'll be right there with you sharing your grief soon.

    I'd just lube them and run them through my Dillon size/trim die. then throw them in the tumbler, and load as normal. normal meaning push them over the expander ball in station 1 on the Dillon small rifle 550.

    I'd try that first. I've never seen a 30-30 seating die that won't crimp. That said, since you already have the die body, just order a crimping sleeve/collet and stick it in the 8mm die body. You may find a cheaper one at Titan Reloading. ...

    Recent S&W .44 Magnums I have checked for people all run .4285-.4290" with barrel groove diameters .429"... If you don't have pin gages, find a jacketed .429" bullet and actually verify its diameter with a micrometer and try it in your cylinder...

    Brass is hard to come by. Winchester used to make a run of it from time to time but I haven't seen any in a number of years. I was fortunate to get a couple bags of 50 new unfired brass from one of our members a while back on a cleaning out sale. I...

    you shoved them in a half jacket and run them into your 429 or 430 bottom die with your SWC top punch installed on your C&H swage-O-matic swage press like the one in my garage set-up for 358 right now. they should be in the 400-410 diameter range...

    if your Rem. is like my AAC it can be picky about it's components. for a little while I was blaming the boolits themselves for my chambering issues. then when I got down to measuring things I found that my rifle has a tight chamber including the...

    I either use a kinetic puller or a press with a multitool or needlenose pliers. One thing tbat really helps is to bump the bullet with a seater and break the neck tension. When I use pliers or a multitool, and an aluminum press I put a Lee FCD...

    the top of the pellet is covered with a thin foil. so even if some powder worked it's way down there it is still separated from the priming compound.

    Any of the loads in that table should work. Try to load bullets out to at least 0.94" overall cartridge length. 5.9 grains of #2400 or 3 grains of AutoComp equal the Buffalo Bore load. Looking at 1000 fps in a 3.5" barrel. I would split the...
