    I have a set of the RCBS shotshell dies and load 4.5 grains of 452AA or WST with the Remington SP410 shotcup. They cycle the M1911 just fine and pattern well to 20 ft. RCBS no longer makes the dies. They were always special order and expensive. ...

    In experiments I did in 1984, loading Saeco #348 double-end wadcutters in full-charge loads with 3.5 grains of Bullseye, firing them at 50 yards in a heavy 16-inch twist test barrel on BSA-Cadet action with .38 AMU chamber, 10X Unertl scope,...

    This is caused by cutting the sprue while the center of the base of the bullet is still in the “Pasty Phase”. This “Pasty Phase” can be as wide as 150 degrees. What is happening is that the antimony is crystalizing and floating in a tin/lead liquid....

    For an ordinary service grade or hunting rifle it is easy to get all wrapped around the axle measuring with micrometers while cutting with a stone hatchet. The 11-degree target crown is optimum, but the difference is significant only in highly...

    After each casting session I brush the iron hardware with plain mineral oil USP, which prevents rust but sublimes away when mold is pre-heated. Burlap is coarse and better scrubber, but should be washed to remove dirt in the weave.

    Cutting the sprue too soon. I cast from 2 molds at a time, don't have that problem. Those Really Big molds take a lot longer to cool.

    I keep a sardine can of water and wet sponge on the bench top and watch the sprue as it hardens. When the sprue turns from shiny to frosty I lay the sprue pour of the gang mold onto the sponge, and let it steam to a count of three before opening...

    Lots of variation in .375 chambers. Best is to do a pound cast of the neck and chamber throat before buying a sizer. Try your Lee or NOE bullets as-cast and unsized, load dummy rounds with each and see if either will chamber. If one does, you...
