    That’s pretty neat I always wondered about the history of that old town and how it used to be. I loved living in Kingsland but I’m glad I’m back in Texas, gods country. DISCLAIMER: These are my results I don’t wish to argue about my findings or...

    I would suggest to go with the KISS method, pick 50 or 100 cases. Record how many times you have fired out of them and look for problems along the way. If you donít run into problems after a normal amount of loading and you have good accuracy then...

    Well that’s just it for subs everyone is using those choices that I listed, the most prevalent is 1680 but that and CFE BLK are almost identical but I just realized today that I missed a big step in referencing reloading data, the load data calls...

    Well for 300 blackout in an AR people use little gun, CFE BLK, accurate 1680, H110, H4198, and a slim few others that will produce enough gas but stay at a low enough pressure. In a bolt gun they use whatever the heck they feel like just about lol....

    I’ve stopped using CFE as I was getting better accuracy with H110 and plenty of gas, it’s what most use for supers but in some over gassed guns like mine it works for subs just as well. I could play around with other powders but this is being used...

    Well less sizing seemed to help for sure but still fliers due to random excessive velocity drops and gains. After some thought I decided to try a few things. For one I was using mixed brass, so I will only work with my converted lake city brass for...

    I’m not sure I completely agree with that, if it starts to build up over time it MUST affect accuracy. The crown is what evenly distributes the expanding gases to the outside world and any lack of uniformity creates a distortion at the base of the...

    Buy a new liner from the lee site directly and also make sure when you flux and stir he stirs the bottom of the pot. A lot of oxidized crap gets stuck to the bottom of the pot and comes out as you pour.

    so help me out here, i received a .312' sizer and a NOE expander. I added them into my loading mix and i have seen positive results but what still eludes me is the velocity variance in my rounds. For example. my best groups today were about 1" at 50...

    Have you gone back and verified that the initial slugged diameter is actually correct? That seems pretty over sized even for a gun that has seen heavy use. Just food for thought.

    +1 on the 1911, 45 is a breeze to cast for and a SWC is painfully accurate.

    I appreciate all the replies guys. Like I said I have a .311 expander coming in as well as .312 sizing die to make it faster to lube then hand lubing. When I get my equipment I’ll make 10 test rounds of each and shoot two 5 round groups of each. I...

    When I gas checked without sizing I pushed them in backwards just till the check got closed all the way, but keep in mind those are the ones that shot the best.

    Well these were heat treated just for uniformities sake, then tested with a lee tester 3 days later. They may be about 9.5-10 bhn by now. For lube I only lubed one lube ring and fill it with Ed’s red.

    So Iíve been working on some subsonic loads for my 300 blackout and I have run into a number of silly things I donít understand. One thing I learned was that after loading 5 rounds without sizing they grouped .6Ē at 50 yards vs the standard 1.5-2Ē...

    A steel bb might be an even better idea, smaller and will help deform the lead.

    sutherpride59 replied to a thread 300 BO Molds? in Cast Boolits
    I’ve been very happy with the NOE 311299 which is a 206 grain mold for subs. I have a MP311-130 mood for supers. Both are very accurate and cycle just fine.

    If I remember correctly they offer air soft bb’s in a smaller than standard size as well, might look into it because you wouldn’t have to squish or form just simply dab of glue and drop it in.
