    Stubborn is right. I really tried my best to get a PRB to shoot like you show in that picture. Maybe it would be wise for me to just say screw 54 caliber, and re-bore right to 58 in a slower twist. As for swabbing between shots, this is a huge plus...

    So what you are saying is that both barrels are hitting dead on at 25 yards, and the 14 inch barrel hits 12"-14" higher than the 18 inch barrel at 50 yards? That simply isn't possible, and with 8" groups, something else is going on. If you are...

    I used Carnauba Red extensively for a couple years, and then tried Blue. In all honesty, I could not tell one bit of difference in lubesizer flow, tackiness, smell, anything. As far as I'm concerned they are they exact same lube. Neither worked in a...

    I'm not aware of one person that has got the 155 gr SWC, in any flavor, to shoot well. I don't know if it's the balance or what, but it's not a bullseye level design. You're doing better than I did. I was in the 8" range at 50 yards with the 160...

    Yeah my first one made me nervous to But I already had an HS precision stock on order for it so I figured if I buggered it up I wouldn’t care. The release agent that comes with it I’m not a big fan but it works. I started using Johnson’s paste wax...

    I sold the bottle on eBay today for $47.50 and $8 to ship. Think I did pretty good considering I paid $.69 for it. The profits are going towards the $110 I paid to upgrade my Ruger American 450 BM to a 450 BM scout model. It would’ve been cool to...

    Thanks for the offer I might take you up on it. I haven’t checked my load data books yet but I would assume that a 270 grain J word is probably only going 2200 ft./s at max velocity?

    To add, here is the full description. You've got the basic press MSRP $75, and the deluxe which presumably comes with the case/bullet feeder MSRP $110. At that price point you can't go...

    Yes my Star sizer broke (a steel part no less), and Magma is no help at all. Thankfully I bought it used, I would never buy new from them. Lee on the other hand often sends out parts for free just from asking. If not, they have a lifetime...

    Personally I think they are right on the money with the 3" LCRX. I have not had a chance to measure one, but the only thing I found wrong with my standard LCR is the short ejector rod. If the 3" version has a ejector rod as long as the SP101, they...

    brewer12345, I'm glad you got it worked out. If I could buy a drop in 1" barrel for my Renegade that didn't cost more than the entire rifle, I would. Sorry guys, I've been away. I read back through the entire thread, and everyone seems to be...

    So I would assume a heavy for caliber boolit is what I would want? If I can’t push it fast I would at least have a sledgehammer with energy. The problem is I really don’t see anything other than 200 grain offerings and .358. And if not I’m wasting...

    Yes, if I try a different alloy with my above load it opens up my groups. In the short time I’ve been casting bullets ive found that if I change the BH It’s like I just tried a different bullet in my gun. I have to start all over and ladder test...

    I’m guessing if I went to harder alloy and use the penta pin I still would have a good chance of the hollow point opening or at least shearing off for additional wound channels?
