    Those messed up bullets arent trash. Just lube and size them. I have had some failed PC experiments that shot just fine with lube in the grooves. That way you dont waste those 200 bullets. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Don't mean to be rude but edges are not clean and "it won break in". If it doesn't cut clean from the first punch it won't happen later. This has to do with how close the fit of the punch and the body but good job on making one! Here is one I...

    Finally made it to the range. Riffle is a Savage Hunter 11 in .260 Remington. Barrel is 22 inches and 1 in 8 twist. I think the twist rate is the killer. Bullet is the NOE-266-140FN (designed for the Creedmoor). Cast from half RS and COWW for...
