    I concur. I’m going to ask a moderator to remove all NOE threads. He cut a big batch of molds that we didn’t buy when they were cut. I understand.

    AGC is NOT a requirement if your using a properly powder coated bullet. Good point on feeding. Mine do feed fine but I have read many times others do not. Lee’s excellent 158-358 is a WFN and a good looking bullet properly alloyed would expand &...

    I have dumped more than a dozen with a 170 GD and LilGun at 1750 FPS. Shot a few with a 140 Speer HP from a 8” Colt with H110. Recent years the 358429 170g Keith bullet and BlueDot drop deer dead inside 75 easily. I shared your Skepticism. Until...

    My favorite 357 Boolit!! I just got a 358429 HP after many years on and off looking!! (Same sane only HP). I also have had a 358429 2 cav for decades. My hunting load is with heavy charge of BlueDot. A stiff load but safe in my Gun’s. CW

    Something else to remember. It’s generally recommended 20/400. Meaning 20 AFTER bullets reach 400. NOT JUST 20 min in oven. CW

    Well that’s a big one! My first attempt set at 400 left a pool of lead with a couple lumps. Ironically it was red HF and looked omanis. Temps on these cheap ovens can be all over the map

    I like my 222/20 better than my later, bigger & heavier 223/20 Savage. That 222 is a earlier model and much lighter. Shoots great too regulation is MUCH closer than the 223/20. Not much difference as the 223 is a 1:14 so it won’t shoot heavier than...

    Bottom line is 99% of distances where a red dot is used will not see an appreciable difference. Have t ya seen them mounted at a 45 angle on MSR setups? If it really bothers ya, you have a dot with a tube 1” or 30mm or a pic rail, levels are...

    Two more “new” ones for me this week. Both RCBS. First is a 32-98 SWC and the second is a eBay find 45-300 FN. It’s covered in surface rust. But inside blocks is clean but one spot. Hoping evapo rust cleans them. CW

    This mold is a Accurate 31-135s. It was designed expressly for the RUGER Single six to fit it’s shorter cylinder. I have t yet tried it in the 32/20 but I will soon! Froggy, 7.3 showed ever so slightly sticky extraction from the birds...
