    That picture is not what I am looking for but sure would blind a 2 legged critter if it didn't even hit him. I do have a 22 inch barrel but that is a lot of flame.

    I have set it lower and higher. Either lube in excess on base or nose. The adjustment works ok. I have a heater under it but that was no help. After using the collet in sizer from NOE and sizing down first and then lubing it has been a piece of...

    As others said. Mold and melt temp needs to be raised. Also increase the pour rate. You may be pouring to slow and that will cause those lines just like a cold mold.

    That looks like a older version of my Lyman 50th. I wish I had an older one. I’m starting out at 32 imr4198 and going to work up to 35 if need be. Got to make sure and take the chrograph to check my velocities. Forget it very time. Looks like 5744...

    Marlin 1895 with Ballard rifling. NOE cast bullet with gas check. WW water quenched. I am just looking for 1500-1700 fps or so but don't want to use pistol powders except for myself. The hotter loads are for partner in crime. I had no luck with...

    I've been using pet bedding and candle wax. Saw somewhere where people were using Lizard Litter for flux. I bought 25 lbs when I was vibratory tumbling brass but am using FART with SS pins now. Plenty left over if it makes a good flux.

    Thanks all. I've been lucky. Mine doesn't leak or hasn't yet. I'm sure one day it will. Usually when I clean I run a 22 caliber brush through pour spout and worse I've had is let lead get too cold and took a torch to the bottom for a few seconds...

    I had some gunk in my Lee pot last weekend. I cleaned with boiling water and baking soda and a wire brush and seemed to get it all out. Looked like sticky candle wax stuck on sides and bottom. Pot has never leaked and this is the way I cleaned it...

    I'm not going to argue on that as I do have several dies for several calibers. My only question was since most of my molds throw so much larger I figured this one to do the same. For a cheap Lee 2 cavity it makes nice bullets I found out this...

    I'm not a Lee basher. Several molds. Three Lee presses and countless dies. I'm not going by what Joe blow said. I had to go with CBS cowboy dies in my 45 because a 454 seater and expander just wouldn't work. Same for my 45-70. Lee is cheaper on a...

    Just got home and checked my turret set up. Dies are not Lee but rcbs. Only Lee is short charging bar. Experimented with a piece of 9 mm and flared fine to hold a 357 bullet I molded and sized to .358. Small bulge in case but I think sizing to .357...

    I was using the Henry golden boy in 45 and used 13.5 grains of HS6 using the NOE 454-255 mold. Lubed with Carnuba blue and it done great. Wanted the 45 Blackhawk and traded it off and regret it now.
