    I agree with water drop bullets, with water drop within a day you can see a Brinnell of 16 to 18 from WW. BUT I think it gets the lead there faster but not harder, if you leave cast bullets for say 6 months or more they will get to the same hardness...

    231 and HP-38 both the same have always metered very good but got a 8lb jug of CFE Pistol and this stuff meters the best Iíve ever seen. How ever the loading data was on the lame side for 45 LSWC on the site, but once you chronograph the load itís...

    I'll do this as you asked by 1 and 2 1st Question is when a "17lb" recoil spring is designated what exactly does that mean? Does it mean it will not move at all until 17lbs or is 17lbs the minimum amount to compress it fully or something...

    This is what I have found to be true Wire Thickness 16lb .044 17lb .045 18lb .046 Springs start out around 6 5/8 to 6 1/2 inch and get smaller and when then get below the 6 inch mark they are at the end. It is said that a recoil spring...
