    If you want some " modest loads " 1,100 - 1,400 fps a can of Universal ( it is a cousin to Alliant Unique ) would work well for you. If you want to speed things up a bit 1,400 - 1,850 fps, H - 4198 is your friend with cast bullets in the...

    You can also use heavy duty teflon tape meant for propane fittings to wrap the die/lube holes. You'll be surprised how durable it is.

    skeet1 replied to a thread Old H414 in Canister & Surplus Powder
    Ball powders are much more resistant to the aging process. H414 I believe is the same as Winchester 760 and is a good powder for most medium sized rifle cases. Ken

    Maven replied to a thread Lyman 358311 question in Cast Boolits
    Mr_Flintstone, If your cases are "at the low end of acceptable," by which I think you mean OAL, you may want to try a taper crimp die and maybe anneal them before you eventually throw them in your recycling bin. I do this with my .357mags. with -311...
