    I never slugged my SIL's Hungarian 9mm Mak. My 95gr Lee mold drops them at .366 or a bit more? it's been a while since I cast some. I Lube them with 45-45-10 twice, then load 'em without sizing using PowerPistol powder.

    if it's a hot summer day, I dry them outside, in the sun. BUT, if it's wintertime in MN, I use the wood stove to dry them. Also, I decap all rifle brass before they get the citric acid bath, bottle neck cases dry better without a spent primer in...

    I did a quick search and didn't see anything about a cross pin issue? Can you post some links and additional info? I've looked at the MVP in 308 but have never heard of this issue with their guns.

    I had a 527 in 7.62x39 for a while....it was "ok" but the huge downside for me was the fact the 5 round single stack magazine was also the balance point of the gun. Made it awkward to carry at times, cracked the original stock within 100 rounds and...

    I know that older military rifles that have lots of wear and tear (worn out throats) will require a larger nose. Lets say a new .308 likes a nose of .301" An old WWII '03 might need a nose of .304" A pound cast will tell you what your rifle...

    OL Deuce it's not mine. Don Brown an old drag racer purchased it new. He died a year or so back. His family sold it a couple weeks back. Could have had it for 30 grand. I did feel good sitting in it though.

    Maybe? The Hutchinson show in late Sept has been a staple for 36 years, known widely as a locally run 300 table show (by the Elk's club) with lots of private dealers, much like the Wells, MN show in March. There is usually a "crocodile productions...

    Myself, I keep it all separate and in it's original form, but I don't have 800lbs of mixed type. If I had 800lbs of mixed type, that's been sitting unused since '75 and I wasn't planning on selling it, then I'd surely think your plan of smelting it...

    You do get used to the smell. Ballistol works great for cleaning up black powder! Been using it for about 8 years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    shot the barrel loose? WOW ! Ruger couldn't fix it? WOW ! again. As DougGuy says, .431 seems like the size to use, if it'll fit. Hunting load, I'd use H110, work up a load for your gun, starting at Hodgdon's recomendation for a start load.

    I agree. I pretty much baby my 29. 429421 with 8gr Unique The SRH gets the heavy stuff. The Smith is a much classier revolver. Better trigger, feel, and balance. The Rugers are just BUTT TOUGH!!

    If the throats measure .431" I would size to .4305" Pure Lino is no good for a hunting boolit. Too brittle. Try air cooled WW alloy plus 2% sn or 50/50 coww/pure/1% sn water dropped.
