    You know I’ve read posts here when I started casting a few years ago that it takes a good three weeks if not longer For an alloy to reach its final hardness. I casted and PCd all in the same day and tested the hardness every day for three weeks....

    I agree with everything you said that’s why I have never shot a dog. I know my buddy in Iowa hunted with a guy who got in trouble years ago. He was on some property he had permission to hunt and there was a dog barking and growling at him while he...

    There are many "tacti'cool" scopes priced from $200 +/- up to $4000+ that will get you to 1000m. You get what you pay for with optics in quality, durability and tracking ability, as mentioned by M-Tecs. Really need to know your price range to make...

    "So here goes. I have a 32/20 Marlin, one of the new 1894's so it can take a little hotter load, so what load with Blue Dot would you recommend with a 98 grain cast boolit?" Yes, the Marlin can take a bit "hotter" load but, unless the cast bullet...

    There’s nothing worse that burns my butt than a dumb owner! I had the neighbors dogs corner me and try to bite me while I was turkey hunting on my property and I still didn’t shoot them but let off a warning shot off at a 45ー angle. One walked away...

    Might be worth buying a extra cheapie loading press and adding another step if it’s going to aid in your accuracy. I bought one and still have to take it out of the box I think I paid like $29 for it with the intent to exclusively size Cast bullets....

    That’s what new my neighbor did after they bought the property next to me a few years back. They are about 15 yards off of it and have their tree stand sideways and stare down into my woods. I finally had enough of it and posted my land. My new...

    I picked the gun up this morning. It’s pretty sharp. Of course I’m looking it over with a fine tooth comb and can see some of the wood grain not filled in by whoever finished the stock. The comb where your hand goes over it’s pretty rough like they...

    You have fins around on the hollow point area just like I do when I cast with my Lyman devastator mold. I’m glad I’m not the only one that gets finning. It always gets squished down when I run it through my sizer anyways.

    I remember it was in my 77/44 now and not my bushmaster. I trim every case to the same length after every firing.

    The boolits that I measured here were two years old as earlier stated in my post. I sized them with my lee .358 and the biggest one I measured was probably .360”. Some measured .359 and .3595. When I ran all of these through my lee Sizer die that...

    You know I made another post recently about finding completely round lead PCd rings shaved off inside a few of my spent casings. Maybe this would explain why I would get a random ring in a case as some of my boolits grew larger than others and would...

    Id find just a couple, like two or three rings after about 60 firings. It wasn’t consistent. I wonder if I had some growth or bounce back on a few of my boolits causing this? The boolits I casted were a month or two old and around 16 BH.

    When you had flyers I was wondering if you’re using gas checks. When I first started reloading with my 44 mag and 450BM I’d get random flyers and after looking at my pile of bullets I made I had some gas checks that went on crooked. This is a good...
