    Are you loading cast boolits or J-words? Lee's Seater is sloppy, but it does OK with pointy J-words. I've had bad luck with Lee seating dies giving me runout problems with boolit noses that aren't similar to J-words. I like most Lee dies, but...

    Everyone has a certain terminology they use for guns. I'm with Lloyd on this one. A K-frame with adjustable sights I personally don't consider a belly gun. Now maybe a 2" model 10 but not a 2 1/2" model 66. But that's just me.

    May be but it could be the size of the pic. Most use a photo hosting site then link the pic here. Saves on you allowable pic space on the forum.

    Tatume replied to a thread 451 volunteer rifle in Muzzleloading.
    The Lyman 451114 bullet works extremely well for hunting with my Parker-Hale Volunteer, and kills like lightning. For practice I size them to 0.450" and they slide down the bore easily; little more than the weight of the ramrod is required to seat...

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread My dream! in Factory Rifles
    had a high point 40 myself. It was dead reliable but I just couldn't handle the ugly. Gave it to my neighbors son. He loves the thing. I don't know how many thousand rounds have been through it but the number has to be well over 50k. I saw the new...

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread Accuracy AR-15 in Factory Rifles
    You might want to give 60 grain vmaxs. That bullet is hands down the most accurate bullet across the board in my ars. 55 grain vmax and ballistic tip also do real well in my 1 in 9 twist guns.

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread my 356 big bore in Factory Rifles
    I ran some 308 through my 356 die and seated some cast bullets in them for dummys. They fed and extracted but unless you really ran the action hard they didn't have enough ejection force and just kind of fell off in the action. Guns a win big bore...

    your not incorrect if it was a belly gun I bought it for but like I said its a gun to carry in the woods that might be required to actually make a humane shot on a rabbit, grouse, turkey ect that is what I bought it for. Kind of a baby brother to my...

    while my BP knowledge/experience is limited, I'd like to share my little bit of experience with QLA. (besides the gun in the story below, I've owned 4 other ML long guns, none of those had QLA) Years ago...like mid 1990s, I bought a Seneca 45...

    Ignore the stories and shoot it. If it shoots to your satisfaction, good. If not, then start looking for a cure. But first find out if it shoots before you try to fix it.

    The LASC link at the bottom of the page, http://www.lasc.us/CastBulletNotes.htm it's a great reference for what is what, and offers simple recipes to blend known alloys into boolit metal. Now, if you scrounge some complete mystery alloy, a...

    JohnH, I'm borrowing you post for an explanation/reasoning of my technique, as you have put it better than I could have. I do not Ladle cast, I only do the bottom pour. I leave the dross (dregs) on top of the melt, if that layer is less than...
