    Not the 300/RCBS. Altho i have the mold. I like a 425 Ranch Dog and 430 older style. All powder coated. Yes problems can be had with styles resembling a bore rider. As the PC can add too much diameter. Both of mine have short but wide flat...

    JBinMN replied to a thread Tin in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Well, Maybe you could offer them more than the going market lead price they get for it, for the "tin that is lead to them" & perhaps you will get a deal by doing so. Tin for lead prices, well worth taking the time to ask if you did not. To me...

    When I built my lead recycling backstop, I sorta felt better about how much lead I had collected by then and that it'd last my lifetime too. Then a friend calls a couple weeks ago and ask if I was still casting...if so he had a bunch of lead...

    I do find, and appreciate, the data you post from your velocity testing on this thread and others. It is interesting because the variations amply demonstrate to those who don't know or don't have a grip on it the fact that there are variations,...

    You will have no argument from me. I agree & understood both your posts. I see that you mention & "specified " the word "Lead" as in cast boolits. The OP did not. As you pointed out, there "is" a difference in whether or not you can do the same...

    In my S&W Model 29-2 I use Accurate 43-230G which shoots to the sights bottomed out with any charge, mostly 7.2 grains of Bullseye, but also fine with heavier loads of 22 grs. of Alliant #2400 or 24grs. of IMR4227.
