    Another :goodpost:, That I most certainly agree with out of many I have read in this topic! :) I would like to add that I grew up with rifles & shotguns not secured in a safe or even a cabinet, although many were up on a wall in a wooden rack....

    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...

    JBinMN replied to a thread 44 mag pistol groups in Cast Boolits
    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...

    Night before last I heard some "screaming" at about 4 AM. I went outside & listened a bit, because I had heard it thru the window and at first, thought it was some cats having a "date". When I went outside I heard that "screaming" again and it...

    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...
