    An aluminum mold will last a looooong time IF you treat/maintain it properly. With that desired volume, a 2 cavity would take forever and a larger mold could get heavy. To maintain that volume you would need to cast an average of 110 boolits...

    Lee's book gives a "factor" (VMD) for powder density based on how much 1 grain weighs cubic centimeters. The lower the figure the more dense the powder will be and thus will occupy less space with a given weight in a given cartridge. The VMD...

    Foraging shot 45-70 load I use a fired R-P case but others work just as well. Deprime and reprime with standard LR (make doesn’t seem to matter) primer. Drop 10 gr of Unique over primer and then gently push a gr of Dacron down on top...

    Something to keep in mind, is when there is no power to run your ovens to cure the PC, the other methods will still work. ;)

    I pan lube some & also tumble lube a lot. The tumble lube is certainly easier than using the pan lube. Maybe you could try TLing some of them & see how that works. Then after your frustration level drops, maybe give pan lubing a try again. Of...

    Good post above from among the others here, but the BOLDED is the key, IMO... ;) I do this for all calibers I shoot. Find the load combo that is the most accurate off the sandbags/bench, then practice with that load for finding my "form" & I...

    No doubt as a lot of cast bullets were used by military shooters. Earliest I read of Ideal's (the mould company name) #1 alloy was in Lt. Townsend Whelen's book Suggestions To Military Riflemen (1909) originally published in 1909.

    The 358W can give feeding problems in the SR Mauser actions (M93 - M95) as they do not have the correct case taper, same as the .308W. I had a heck of a time getting my Oviedo M93 to reliably feed .308Ws if 3 or more rounds were in the magazine. ...

    Good job for the first go around. If you are using a bottom pour pot, skimming isn't that critical. A regular large "eating" spoon or soup spoon (the curved kind) works for skimming. I flux with pine sawdust and leave the dross (looks like grey...
