    Thanks for the info. My silicone mats will be here Tuesday. Will study your method in more detail and see if I can get something along those lines to work for me.

    I am in the early stages of casting for the 357 Sig 125 grain. Starting out at 1300 FPS across the chrono with no sign of problems yet.

    Interesting point about the silicone mats. I may have to order a couple of them while Amazon is doing the free shipping with no minimum. I am coating in one building and then carrying the trays over to my shop 10' away where the oven is located. I...

    I would address this issue through eBay and PayPal if that service was used. I have had problems in the past with no response from the seller. eBay contacted the seller and after they received no response they simply refunded my payment. I have...

    Accurate Molds has one specified for 32-40 but I am sure there is some difference. He will make molds to spec but I am not sure what the process involves.

    Dropped a few pills for the 357 Sig. I am tempted to try these in 9mm and the 357 Mag. Looks like a marathon PC session coming up soon.

    scotner replied to a thread Dillon RL550B in Reloading Equipment
    Sometimes all you need is a set of locator pins and/or a powder funnel for a different caliber. For example, 380, 223 and 300 BLK all use the same shellplate. I keep one 550 with a #5 shellplate to load 9mm, 10mm, 40 S&W and 357 Sig. Four sizes of...

    My Sturdy safe is enclosed in a 2x4 framed enclosure with 5/8" Class C drywall inside and out. Between the walls is 3.5" of rock wool insulation. This gives me fire and thermal protection and would hopefully buy a few more minutes for FD to arrive....

    Nice group. Hey, that is the first time I have heard a heavy cast 300 BLK round unsuppressed. Kind of loud without the can.

    Second the suggestion of Sturdy Safes in CA. They will build them to order with as much steel as you want and ship directly to you. I have been very happy with mine.

    I mounted mine on a small steel strip and added two magnets. Then PC'ed it to make sure the magnets stay with the bracket. You can position it anywhere you want it in the pot or remove it to add ingots or flux.

    I am shooting an Accurate Molds 31-247 (which appears to have been replaced with a 31-250E) in a 10.5" 1:8 barrel. PC and sized to .3095". I started at about 1050 fps but ended up reducing that slightly to improve accuracy. I am not sure if I ran it...
