    Grmps replied to a thread case sizing lube in Cast Boolits
    Pour 1 to 1 1/2 oz liquid lanolin into a red bottle of HEAT and drop a couple boolits in. Mark the bottle. Shake it up an add to your sprayer whenever it gets low. For paste type lube I like mink oil (shoe protector) much cheaper than the name...

    You are correct, the swirling motion/friction with the #5 (I've heard #2 but haven't tried that) creates a static charge. I have no idea why people are shaking the containers unless it is to get aggression out and ding up the boolits. Many of the...

    I've seen many of the newer Lyman 4 cavity molds that were over 5 grains off between the cavities. I no longer buy new Lyman If they are different weights they usually are different diameters. If the molds are new and even after it has fully...

    This will do it just fine...fill the bucket with water (this is where I add the wash-n-wax for the coating of the brass)...turn it a dozen times and you'll not find a single pin even in a bottleneck case. While the brass is in the tumbler just rinse...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread 8 x 57 in Military Rifles
    Years back I had 2K of the Rem 185 CorLoks. I worked up a load using 47.5 gr of slow burning lot of milsurp IMR 4895 which was very similar in burn rate to IMR 4320. I measured the psi (Oehler M43) using a VZ24 in new condition. The psi was...

    Cover the bottom of the oven with firebricks or some other heat retaining material and it will recover much faster after the door's been open.

    You are remembering that the 9MM is a tapered case and any over crimping will downsize the boolit. I would assume you are saying the lead is too soft. What are you planning to coat them with? ...

    This may be a dumb idea but, try tilting the mold when you start pouring, see if that improves the fill at the tip. I know with the bottom pour sometime where/how the flow of the lead enters the sprue hole makes a difference. If you decide to...

    I have always considered "Nominal" to mean "Minimum". Deck boards are usually 5/4"s ( Five -Quarters) or about 1-1/8th inch thick after planing, so they would meet the "nominal" thickness of 1" if you chose to build powder magazine or two for...
