    Absolutely, I will get these to shoot, I'm just reporting my observations good and bad. 30 grains is pretty mild, but the chronograph shows low velocity spreads. I just find 32 grains to kind of be the standard I use, no particular reason, but it...

    It's possible, but I'm not shooting these all that hard. I've kind of settled on 32 grains of blue dot for testing, and there is little muzzle blast. Very little flash either. I just loaded some up with 30 grains, with an all hard card wad stack....

    Upon closer inspection, the base pin is actually held in by a roll pin, and it is not drilled all the way through. It looks a little small for me to want to try and force out. Maybe hot glue in the base is the best thing to start with, and see if it...

    For the most part, leading is a non-issue. I even shot a different slug bare, as in no lube at all, and didn't see even the tiniest bit of leading until 50+ rounds. When leading is severe like I had in one case, something is very wrong. Once...

    For your purposes, it sounds like the flatter shooting, the better. I won't get a shot over 40 yards, so it doesn't matter to me. My 150 grain bullet actually has a longer nose than your sledgehammer. That mold wasn't for sale at the time, so I drew...

    To be more precise, the last time I shot them, I ended up with about 8 touching for a group about 1 1/2", but 3 fliers about 6" away, two were straight down close together, one was farther left. I attributed it to a heavily leaded bore for those...

    I got out for another good day of shooting the GP100 5". It looks like Blue dot was most accurate with the 150 grain bullet. It seems like I still have room to go up in Blue dot, but the highest I ran today was 1075 fps. AA #9 I got up to 1275 fps,...

    I tried out some more sabot slugs today. Accuracy at 100 yards was not nearly as good as last time, but I'm not ruling out a problem with the gun, scope, or bad shooting. Velocity went 1730 fps with 42 grains of blue dot, and was reasonably...

    I have been playing with these slugs for the past few weeks, with no luck. The three wad stacks I've used are x12x + (2) 1/4" felt wads+ (3) 1/8" nitro cards, the second is a x12x + (6) nitro cards, and the third x12x + 1/2" fiber + (3) nitro cards....

    One guy claims to run .311" in a number of his own guns with success. For mine, .312" would be right on the edge. I've tried .313", and it seems to work just fine. I'd bet it would work in 99% of the 32 cal handguns out there. .314" is what I use,...

    The day I fell in love with cast bullets was the day I smelled a cloud of canaruba red mixed with Blue dot. Not quite as good as a hot chocolate with the first shot of the day duck hunting, also with blue dot, but nothing is.

    It's good to see somebody use one of these guns as they should be. They are a huge leap above other 32 calibers. It's looking like my 327 federal will be going out with me deer hunting. I'm still undecided on what bullet I will use, they all shoot...

    I took it to the FFL, and was met with deer in headlights. I explained the best I could, but neither of us was certain how to proceed with Davidsons. They were nice enough to hold it, and find out. I think it was Wednesday last week I got a call...

    I'm sure you have been at this for decades, but I'm not leaving a nipple in for a year or more. That's just asking for trouble. There's probably better, but I always used copper anti-seize, and it seems to work fine. That is intriguing about...

    It's not that hard, but it's not that fun. Plus the whole thing with hunting. You can either leave it loaded and cross your fingers, shoot it and swab your bore like normal and hope rust doesn't become a problem, or shoot it and clean it, which you...

    I am always sure to hit it with the air gun to dry things out, that should clear any other little bits. I wouldn't have air if I was field cleaning, but I wouldn't use pipe cleaners either. I'm always afraid to loose patches down in the gun. Again,...

    megasupermagnum replied to a thread 327 fed. mag. in Cast Boolits
    The 10# kind of worked in my GP100, but I feel much better with the 12#. The 10# did not work in my SP101. I went with the lightest trigger return in my GP100 which resets with authority, but kept the stock one in my SP101, as it did not seem to...

    These don't fit together tight enough for any of that to matter. I always take my guns apart as much as is reasonable to clean. I've never noticed any lack of accuracy, and all my guns hold their zero. After the soak in PB blaster a ton of junk...

    I still have not called Henry, but it really is heavy. I wish I had a gauge. I'm not too worried about it, I have stronger than normal fingers, but this is not a good kids gun as they come.

    I also strongly favor a revolver. As a left handed shooter, the auto's leave way too much to be desired. I have yet to find one that has an easy to reach safety, good trigger, easy to reach mag release, good sights, reliable, and accurate all at the...

    Thanks, I don't have window cleaner, but I put my barrel in a can of PB blaster. I worked it in and out a few times, and it has now been sitting for a few hours. The liquid has turned black, and seems to really be working. I took the lock off, and...

    Yes, but how do you scrub the channel out? Soapy water does ok, but i can still see built up gunk. I can only imagine the areas you cant see.

    I got a 54 caliber TC new englander, and it seems to shoot quite well. I am trying to figure out the best way to clean it. I never felt good about just pumping water through. It's ok for just a casual cleaning, but for 100% reliability I like things...

    Whether its a bolt, lever, or break action, they all head space the same. I can't even begin to guess what problems there would be that wouldn't happen in any other gun. How's this for a wildcat? A 300 win mag, shortened so the powder space is about...

    I tried Swiss Fg in my TK2000, with multiple wads, and could not measure one bit of difference pattern wise from Goex FFg. I'd stick to FFg, and may even try FFFg if I was going to keep to lighter loads.

    Not a round nose, but a round nose flat point. The Lee 358-125-RF comes in a 6 cavity, and feeds good in the only 9mm I tried it in.
