    Depends if you Full-Length size. I don't for any .30-30 Load. I Partial-Size only. My loads fit my H & R Handi-Rifle, Marlin 336 and both Winchester 94's. I can't remember the last time I lost a case. Even using full power loads. I...

    I changed the oven setting of my B & D to stay on. Now 400degrees even I dumped out the first batch into a sandwich box to dig out the bullets, turned out sandwich box was #5, just added another 20 bullets. Worked better, got full coverage. Tall...

    A firearm is a pressure vessel and must be kept within pressure limits to operate safely. It takes gas pressure (powder burning inside a small area ) to push the bullet out of the barrel during the pressure curve. As a heavier Bullet takes...

    Well, Dragon, I guess I don't know anything. 60yrs with the same load is not enough experience for you. I'm not going to waste time listing the pistols this load has gone through. The trouble with most of you folks is you're always trying...

    My REMINGTON 700 Classic is 1-12". I've shot SAECO 180gc to LYMAN 250grainer's. Heavier bullets much more accurate. The 200gr makes a great plinker. I80gr kinda just spins off to...?......? Sorry I just use H4895. Ran out of SR4759, gonna...

    Why does everyone piss & moan over loading the 9X19 ? It ain't Rocket Science. I've been using same load My DAD figured out in the mid-1950's. 120-125gr TC or Long RN (.356-Linoytpe) over a Max charge of BULLSEYE. Plunk test is...

    I am doing my first PC as I write this. My first 20 45cal bullets are in the little convection oven getting coated with HF red. Doesn't look too good. Not a smooth coat, used 20-250gr, 2 TB powder, 3 TB black 6mm BB's. Tumbled 6 min. Oven...

    Were you going for a std roll crimp ? If your round drops in & out of the chamber, there is no problem. If you want a roll crimp, then you have some careful die adjustment to work on. The only way to get a good roll crimp is to start with cases...

    My DAD fed his the LYMAN #356402 sized .355 cast hard of pure Linotype. Harder the bullet the better the feed. Seat to edge of bearing surface. he used a second sizing ( no decapping rod ) die to "taper crimp". Lubed the whole cartridge to do it,...

    I trim all my R-P brass to 1.285", it's reserved for my '66/'73's. I have 3 different Bullets I use; a MAGMA 225gr. a 210gr RCBS and a 200gr #42798. With the old LYMAN dies, I'm able to crimp on the Ogive of each bullet, maintaining an O.A.L....

    Yep a case splits, it lowers the pressure. Therefore bullets from split cases are moving slower, each split case is going to cause a slightly different change in pressure. So bullets are going to leave the bbl moving at slightly different...

    Walks replied to a thread Old keith bullet in Cast Boolits
    I think we have to consider that Keith started his casting from single cavity molds with integral handles. It's easiest to get a single cavity mold to release then any other type. And Keith merely took another older design and put a crimp...

    This O.A.L. of yours is a bit confusing. I find that my UBERTI copies of the 1966/'73 will handle an O.A.L. of 1.600" maximum. My MARLIN 1894 & WINCHESTER 1892 will handle an O.A.L. of 1.620" without a problem. A loaded round that long will...
