    If you can wait it out for another production run and have the cash, EWK makes a few different railed barrel assemblies for Dan Wessons. I recently picked up a 6" for my 15-2. If you do go that route, be advised that they are NOT weaver/picatinny...

    Jessdigs, Great high def pictures, thank you for sharing! Hope you'll have some expanded boolits to follow up with soon.

    Have you considered the Springfield EMP4? Same build quality, slightly smaller alloy frame built around 9mm dimensions. I've been eyeballing one for awhile, the catch is they are expensive!

    I noted awhile back that NOE has essentially two versions of the C.E. Harris design, I presume the earlier 311-155FN was a facsimile before the original designer was referenced. Aside from the sight diameter differences between the two, I would...

    I have the NOE 270-163, it is for larger bore 6.5 Swedes. Mine drops at .270-.271." I also have the NOE 270469 (copy of the Lyman Loverin) drops the same size. A few things to note, my 270-163 is a plain base, and it has been extremely challenging...

    KVO replied to a thread Lee 358-158-RF in 9mm ??? in Cast Boolits
    Having never worked with the Lee 158 RF, I have always been curious about the dimensions as I have never seen a print of that design posted. Would someone with this mold be willing to post a similar photo showing bearing surface length and annotate...

    KVO replied to a thread Lee 358-158-RF in 9mm ??? in Cast Boolits
    Here is a bearing surface comparison between the MP 360-640 and the NOE 360-160 WFN after coating and sizing to .358". For this series of pictures the respective projectiles are touching the micometer faces right at the start of the bearing surface....

    KVO replied to a thread Lee 358-158-RF in 9mm ??? in Cast Boolits
    Sized at 0.358", for everything 9mm. Might be able to use a more blunt ogive design with @ .357", but I try to keep 9mm boolits as fat as I can. Steeply tapered noses make it easier to work with.

    Mihec 360-640, 155gr solid, 145gr HP. 4.2gr CFE Pistol and solid boolit averages 954 fps out of a Sig 2022 (~3.9"bbl) Same boolit loaded for .357 and 9mm I previously tried the NOE 360-160 WFN but there was just too much bearing surface...

    KVO replied to a thread expander plug size in Cast Boolits
    I typically exand necks with the NOE two step expander. I shoot for a top step just over sized diameter, and a bottom step at or just below diameter. Example: I size .44 magnum at .431", and expand using the NOE .433x.430" expander. The brass...

    Bazoo, always glad to share experiences both good and bad. If no one had started tinkering we'd be stuck with slingshots. Or jacketed bullets.

    The Baby Bel wax works well as a moderate velocity rifle bullet lube when cut 50/50 with Lee liquid Alox, I use it as a pan lube. Needed a way to use up all those LLA bottles that came with my push through sizers (PC most things these days). It...

    KVO replied to a thread GT Bullets in Cast Boolits
    I haven't used their product but it appears that many of their offerings are cast from Mihec and NOE molds. Would be a good opportunity to try a a sample before forking out cash on a mold. Given the apparent number of semi-custom molds GT uses it...

    Old thread but I thought worth a revisit, not much new news on this powder... CFE Pistol is working for me as a slightly slower Unique, in many of the same applications. This is 7.5gr CFE under an Arsenal Molds 210gr RNFP, .44 magnum brass in...
