    The rough rider bore is .452" you should really go back and re-check the cylinder throats. I have the same gun and mine were undersized till I reamed them out to .4525". Also the rough rider sufferes from sever muzzle constriction in 45lc so you...

    For your 30cal search beagling a mold on here that should drop them a little bigger and isn't a permanent alteration to the mold. Also try casting at a lower temp to prevent shrinkage.

    Stearin and stearate are two different things apparently.... ok so adding ivory soap helps to soften the mixture , harden it, or help mix the ingredients better?

    I added a teaspoon of ground up dollar store paraffin candle and 1/2 teaspoon of ivory soap. I had both on hand. It formed the lube up a good bit but doesn't feel like too much. I lubed 50 boolits up with the small amount I mixed up and I'm going to...

    If the lube is too soft wouldn't adding paraffin do exactly what I need and stiffen it up? The lube is red and smells of ATF so I know it's not 50/50 lithium/beeswax. The main problem was loosing most of the lube early and gumming up the chamber. I...

    I have several bricks of lube that my father in law gave me but they are to soft for 45acp. Before you argue I tried with a wide variety powders and I keep getting a build up of grease at the front of the chamber. That being said best I can tell the...

    Just slug the barrel or better yet do a pound cast, if you do a pound cast make sure you oil the barrel and place a piece of paper towel or small piece of cleaning patch between the lead and the steel rod. It will keep the lead from flowing over the...

    sutherpride59 replied to a thread W231 in Cast Boolits
    I have been been using my lube sizer with some boolit lube my father in law gave me that is red and has the consistency of grease after the boolit comes out of the sizer. After 10-15 shots I have so much lube built up in the front of the chamber...

    sutherpride59 replied to a thread W231 in Cast Boolits
    Well after a lot of reloading with W231, power pistol, trail boss and clays I have determined without a shadow of a doubt that it's my lube. I think my lube is actually too soft. Everything I read said that there was no such thing as too soft of a...

    I shot some wad cutters the other day that I cast and aloxed about 6 months ago and got stellar groups with no leading. So the shelf life is somewhere between 6months and 5 years.

    A I'm going to try a variety of things as y'all suggested, shorter OAL. Size some to .453, drop down and speed up on my powder charge, and check my alloy I think some of my lead bars got mixed in the move and I never tested the boolit hardness so...

    So I loaded up some hollow point cast from my new 45 200-225grain mold. I went o the range to shoot them and see how the accuracy was and it sucked. I shot these at 10 yards off hand and they were landing 3" high and left of my normal POI. They...

    The boolit is hitting sideways and key-hole'n, the solution is simple, stop shooting the gun sideways :D But seriously you need to use a better method of measuring your boolit size than fits in the case. Buy a cheap micrometer on eBay or Amazon,...
