    Would those be good for Lee slugs? My results thus far with the Lee slugs have been dismal at best. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Your disparity of weight difference is more likely caused by uneven heating. Polishing out the cavities is one way. Personally, I dont weight and sort bullets. I dont shoot past 200 yards and havent felt the need. My groups are satisfactory. ...

    how are you holding the punch inside? Do you have set screw in side? I tried this except I just used threaded rod and the set screw needs to clear threads, there is just not enough material unless your set screw is below which brings its own set...

    I remember what your talking about. The consesus was under a specific fps there was no difference. I can not remember if it was 2100 or 2400 fps. Over the the specified fps and copper was better. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    When i make lube i pour it into a sheat. Then cut it into strips. I just roll the lube into strips and stuff it into the sizer. Its quicker than trying to melt and pour. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I wonder if different gas check materials and designs would change any thing. Like the hornady short copper cups compared to homemade taller aluminum/copper checks. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Yes and No.. I guess. I pay attention to details. If i were shooting jacketed bullets that can wear out a throat. Then i track. My .270 win has 836 copper jacketed rounds. But cast bullets, probably around 2,000. Cleaning guns, i clean them about...

    Preheating doesnt take that long. They only need to be warm, bit not hot to hold. I normally set the bullets ontop of the toaster over to pre warm. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    induction hotplate is not good if you want fine control, just try boiling water with it and you'll see what I mean. Its either rolling boil or hardly anything that's why you burned it. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    I never used BBs and get perfect results. Preheat only like 4 min at 150 degrees or whatever lowest you got, also depends on amount of bullets. Elvis Ammo has good videos on youtube. You also need to make sure your bullets and powder is not...

    Felix lube is a soap lube. It is not going to remelt easily. It is turning dark because you are burning the bees wax in it. Just break off a peice and roll it into a little crayon like snake. Then finger lube your bullets and run it through push...

    I sit in a dark room with a blow torch. Twist the brass quickly in my fingers at the shoulder and neck. When it srarts to glow a slight maroon or gets too warm to hold i drop it into a pale of water. Works great for me and I only loose brass to...
