    I have an old IDEAL#308291 1cav that cast from #2 drops at .3095, it pops out of the sizer at .3085. I crimp in the crimp groove and it chambers in my 1982 94 Top Eject and Handi-Rifle easily. The LYMAN #311041 2cav that I bought as a replacement in...

    I've been shooting cast in my old '93 carbine for 40yrs+, using the #287405. A Loverin design, I seat it just to where the bullets base stops at the bottom of the case neck. I cast of #2+, about BHN 18. Lube with 50/50 or lately WLL BAC, just to the...

    The barrels alone are going for higher than that on eBay,,,,,,, Yes, it's a good deal. The wife and I have a pair that are fixing to get a slew of BRP 87's and NOE 105's tried in them. Lots of folks here have found the .243 to be a great cast...

    Walks replied to a thread Sizing die compression in Cast Boolits
    I cast the #358495 out of COWW or 20/1 for about 10yrs, until I realized I COULDN'T cast better then I could buy swaged HBWC's. Lubed only the bottom 2 grooves, sized .358, never noticed the lube grooves being "squashed". My DAD used to cast the...

    If it's tapped for a receiver sight, you should be able to mount a small red dot, like a Bushnell TRS-80 to a rear mount. Worked like a charm with SMLE a while back. They're very accurate and no having to D&T more holes in the barrel,,,,,

    The way folks treat their brass since the coming of Progressive Reloading presses has drastically altered reloading. I can't even use the term HandLoading. Ammo is shot up as fast possible, and loaded just as fast. In the three most common...

    Could it be for that .45COLT ammo that was loaded for the COLT 1909. I seem to remember reading something about the rims being made wider because the standard cartridge rims would slip off the extractor, jamming up the revolver.

    I've never "forgotten" I owned a gun. But I've lost a few that I loaned to friends that died, and my plea's to have them returned were rebuffed by family members. The Police consider it a family matter, or in the case of a different City, a...

    I keep all my brass separate. When I pick it up at the range it goes right back in it's own box. I've picked up so much brass from .32ACP to .50AE since I was 3 or 4yrs old, that I can tell what a cartridge is by blind feel. I've still got some...

    I used to load a HORNADY HBWC. Gave me pretty decent accuracy at 50ft. Never tried a cast bullet. Didn't have anything that would drop at .360 or larger.
