    I use the Swede stripper clips for my M1903s and .308W Mauser, they work fine. No reason the 358W shouldn't work.

    I've used Jeff Cooper's suggested 7.5 gr Unique under a 200 gr cast for many years. Not my standard practice load but when I hunt with the M1911 or my M98 conversion it is the most common load I use. I also load 7.5 gr Unique under Hornady 185...

    Might weigh some before powder coating. Also the alloy used can give a marked difference in bullet weight. Moulds are cut for a certain ally for a specific weight +/-. If you use an alloy with a higher % of lead the bullets will be heavier. If...

    Guy In another thread I recommended a Dacron filler over 36 gr IMR3031 under your 350 gr bullet in the 45-75. That still should be quite safe but you may want to drop to 32 gr and still use the Dacron filler. That way you can work up to 1380...

    vzerone I am not changing the conversation at all. Your post #32 answered my previous post which was before swheeler got into the conversation and you continued to discuss it with me disagreeing, as usual, with anything I've said. Not against...

    Don't over think it. You answered your own question with; "or maybe my lube wasn't up to the task, there wasn't a lube star". Your home made moly lube simply wasn't up to the task with that bullet in a revolver with that length of barrel. ...

    Concur. It's during the flight of the bullet to target that the centrifugal force acts on the imbalances in the bullet which results in larger groups or poorer accuracy. However the 3 moa accuracy tomme boy was getting is within the expected...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Fillers...? in Single Shot Guns
    vzerone I've no doubt the improper use of Dacron can result in the melting of it. I've no doubt Dacron might help seal the bore with a poorly fitting bullet. I do not advise in the improper use of Dacron as a wad or filler with fast burning...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Fillers...? in Single Shot Guns
    I recently came into a quality of RL7 so I thought I would try it under the NOE 30 XCB bullet in my .308W Match M70 rifle. I initially tried 25 through 29 gr in 1 gr increments w/o a Dacron filler. The ES for those 10 shot test strings ranged from...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Fillers...? in Single Shot Guns
    The decision is based on the burning rate of the powder, bullet weight and load density. With your 45-75 with the 350 gr cast bullet over 3031 if the load density (case capacity to the base of the seated bullet) is less than 80% then I would use...

    Did lots of shooting on an indoor range and I've swept up lots of Dacron that accumulated on the floor in front of the muzzle. Also had it blow back in my face on out door ranges. Contrary to popular opinion I don't think much if any of the Dacron...

    If the front drive band is larger than groove diameter it seals the bore with very little bullet movement. The base of the bullet does not need to seal the bore if the bullets entire bearing surface is larger than the groove diameter because the...
