    The load should leave space for around 35-40 gr. WC860, WC872. My goal was to be able to reach factory equivalent velocity to use for the Safari Rifle Challenge world championship in July. I do have plenty other powders to use, and jacket bullets if...

    I'll bet if the company made the guys painting these have to clean the overspray out of the bbls. before packaging them for shipment, they would learn to put a cork stopper in the bbl. before painting real quick lol. No telling how many of these...

    These three are quite special for me for the people they remind me of. The boner with 4 3/4 in 15N20 blade has scales from a walnut tree I felled on my late fathers yard in the early 80's. The light hunter with 3 5/8 N690 blade has buffalo horn...

    I have a few pounds of the square flake Turk powder. I'm thinking of using around 42 gr., for a velocity of around 2450 fps in my .375 H&H. That load leaves quite a bit of space in the case. I'm thinking WC 860 or WC 872 as filler. Anyone see any...

    Bummer and sounds about like my kind of luck lol. Hopefully PA steps in and will say close enough on the 30 days. If not, Beeman should stand by the 1 year warranty and fix it or replace it. Actually, my luck would be more like it breaks after a...

    If the bullets are not pre-heated with a heat gun and the lube hot, you won't have any luck pouring the lube onto the bullets. I've pan lubed a little ( not much ), I heat the lube on a hot plate until it it is a liquid. Then I place the bullets...

    The wax is paraffin wax. I got the tip from a professional knifemaker so havent tried bees wax. If you had plenty it might be worth a try on some scrap leather to see how it went.
