    Almost everyone I've seen who quotes their bake time for PC is well below factory specs for required bake time to achieve full cure. Many You-Tube PC'ers make pretty boolits that are ARE NOT fully cured trying to save time. You may/are trusting...

    Nah... If you have kids, or plan to have some in the future, you & they will likely appreciate your not selling them off, along with the other stuff. ;) Just a suggestion, but you do as ya like. :)

    This late afternoon/evening I took my drive with the dogs & traveled some of the gravel back roads. no "2 tracks" this trip. Still way too muddysnowy/rough for this feller... I saw over 75-80 deer of all sizes/ages, and most were within 100 yds...

    Thanks for the reply! I was leaning towards thinking that, but wanted to know for sure from you, in case there was something I had posted, rather than the OP, that you were addressing in particular. :) For me... I was not offended in any way...

    I've found that unless your shooting competitions or long distance you won't notice a 5% weight difference. do a test, load 10 with the exact same weight boolit and load 10 with random weight boolits. put them in bags and have someone label the...

    Yes I have thought about that, but although I know a few reloaders, they are not interested in going any further than that. I only know of one feller who casts boolits & he doesn't do casting or smelting much anymore since his dad died a while...

    This is a rough, budget prototype I threw together and have sized tens of thousands of boolits with. I bought a heavier duty press to upgrade the entry level lee press but haven't had to. I've even used a cheater bar on this a couple times when I...

    I enjoy casting and loading & shooting up the resulting boolits.. I do not enjoy smelting into ingots. The difference being that I get to see more boolits to load with casting, I only get to see ingots with smelting & even though I know that...

    JBinMN replied to a thread 38 Loads in Cast Boolits
    From what I just looked up... If you are using a 38 Special, then your 148gr, BBWC are over MAX. according to Alliant for their BE powder & that firearm platform. They are likely high for even a P+ load in 38 Spec.. You are below suggested load...

    To whom are you addressing? The OP, or me? Since we both have join dates of 2017? The OP posted the topic & I posted just prior to you.

    I always wondered if folks doing the group buys would share if what they had hoped for was a good thing as an idea to try, but turned out to be more of a "flop" than was expected. Have not heard of that much here. Folks like to talk about the...
