    The temp was 4F when we took that pic. It had warmed up quite nicely. But the wind was about 30 knots as you can see my collar blown up against the side of my face and me bracing the wind. It’s been a mild winter so to speak. Still drops to 10-20...

    That road is deigned to handle 250,000 lbs. It cost 5.5 million to build and is only just over three miles long going out to our island, Spy Island.

    Well, actually I was the target. The Polar Bears are just coming out of their dens with their little ones and I understand that they are very hungry when they come out. We had about 160 sightings last year.

    Itís called Spoofing. I get calls from my area code and prefix regularly. They go through some type of computer system to spoof the number so that you will think it might be someone who you know or someone close by. The drawback for me is my...

    I use this bullet in the .45 Colt with BP and with SPG lube there is ample lubrication to prevent foul-out in the Marlin Cowboy lever actions. Also very accurate and a good field bullet when cast 1:40 tin-lead

    3 grains of either 231, WST, HP38, or AA#2, or 2.4 grs. of TiteGroup should all work in your LCP with the Lee 95RF.

    I would be less worried about bullet diameter than increased seating depth from the longer 124-grain Lee bullet. The .380 ACP case is 0.68" long, depending upon the nose profile of the bullet, you could be increasing loading density and boosting...

    Lee, Dillon, RCBS, and Hornady have all been excellent. My only bad experience was with Lyman. I needed a new pan. They wouldn't sell me one. They wanted me to send my scale in, and pay for the pan, AND for them to calibrate it. I ended up, ordering...

    No benefit to using ice water vs. ordinary cold tap water. Some benefit to cold soaking in freezer after removal from the water quench.

    Older large frame original Vaqueros will have a two-digit serial number prefix, starting at 55-0001 in 1993 and ending at 58-91296 in 2005 and the later small-frame models have a 3-digit serial number prefix starting at 510-0001.

    Outpost75 replied to a thread Oversize bullets in Cast Boolits
    I've done what you describe with no issues, but I stay a bit below maximum loads. As long as the chambers have adequate release clearance for the bullet diameter it is not unsafe, but it isn't the most efficient way to size the bullets, nor will it...

    Huh, I was of the belief that the wind pushes the whole bullet to the direction it's blowing rather then turning the nose to that direction. If it turned the nose Wow could you imagine how far off target the bullet would be then? Think about it,...

    Waco you're getting there, but a few things concern me. Was your target backer board plumed vertically? I ask because a good number of your bullet holes look like they hit at an angle. It's either that or your bullets were yawing/not stabilized. ...

    Have not hunted in NZ, but red deer in Spain and Italy fall down within 150 metres with similar loads. 1900 fps is plenty and the 50-50 alloy is fine. Agree heavier bullet on 190-200kg animal if you have one with flat nose having meplat larger...

    Easier to neck down Starline .38-55 than to neck up .30-30, which may split unless you mouth anneal. I got Redding dies, which are pricey, but have long, tapered 7-1/2į expander which brings annealed .30-30 brass up in one pass with no loss. ...

    The several shower pans I have used in the past were not "pure" lead, but were "soft" and had a little antimony in them. I added 1% tin to cast .38 Special and .45 Colt revolver bullets lubed with Lee Liquid Alox and had good results. I don't see...

    The older large-frame Vaqueros in blue finish with case-hardened frame cost more than a new gun, if you can find one. I bought two .44 Mags, 5-1/2" and 7-1/2" ANIB off GunBroker several years ago in the $600 range and they cost more than that...

    Lee Factory Crimp Die can profile your loaded rounds to remove the bulge and then the bullet will be sized inside the case.

    The problem described is caused by excess seating depth which results in the base of the bullet causing a bulge where it intersects the internal taper of the case wall. This is caused by using a bullet of improper profile so that when deep...
