    I have tried a few different 9mm molds but ended up having much fewer problems with the .38 special mold from Lee, .358 125 gr rnfp. Charge I run almost exclusively Red Dot across the board. I have run from 3 to 4.5 grains in 9mm. The heavy...

    What did you shoot in that gun prior to the first group? Any chance you had traces of lube left? Go back and work it out, step by step what you did right in #1 and what was different for the rest. You should find some change someplace.

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Easy Mode Range Day in Cast Boolits
    Well I burned 20 rounds of .30-30 ammo today but she's hitting plumb dead center where I want at 50. Next time we'll see about stretching her legs out a bit. I also fired 5 rounds of .45 acp through a 16" chamber adapter in the 20 ga barrel. ...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Easy Mode Range Day in Cast Boolits
    Topper 158 combo .30-30 & 20 ga walked in my door 4 days ago. Owner walked away with 3 times what the pawn shop offered him. We were both happy. Scope base got installed, new Truglo 2x Red Dot sight installed, waiting to take it to the range...

    H&R 732 (Blued) and 733 (Nickle) Less than 300$ invested in the pair. (Gun broker) Both chambered in .32SW long. Shooting the .314 90 gr Lee truncated cone cast bullet over 2 grains of Red Dot. Hardly more recoil, muzzle blast than a .22lr....

    IMO yes. I have 2 9mm's that need big boolits. One is a Hipoint C9 pistol that keyholed and shot shotgun patterns until I put it on a diet of 125 gr .359 cast boolits. The other is a stub job for a Handi rifle. Converted shotgun barrel with a...

    Our local Mill's Fleet farm has been stocking Plano 100 round hinged boxes with two catch's to hold them closed. Under 4$ each, mostly in the 3.59$ area. I have been stocking and filling and stocking for a bit now. Ammo table is starting to groan. ...

    I love the 20 round mag's Red Ball developed for the 9mm Hipoint. Got the Hipoint seal of approval too. It works. Waiting for a bigger mag for the .45 and .40. Not that 9 or 10 is not enough. But it is nice not to have to reload so often. ...

    Yes but a huge difference between 125 gr and 158's. If you want to stay with the light bullets go with a faster powder. If you want to use Blue Dot, go heavy.

    Never had it happen for me with 7.62x54r brass. Something fishy in denmark. Wrong die, something.

    About half and half. I shoot some .314 90 gr TC TL those are plain base. Mostly these are over light loads of Red Dot. I also shoot the Lee .312 185 gr those are checked. These I use the 4895 and they are probably fast enough that the gas...

    Nice old Roller! I like the straight taper case too. I am not sure what it is, but I always like seeing rimmed cases in single shot rifles. Just seems to fit for some reason. Enjoy!

    I had this exactly on my Mosin Nagant. Just at the point where the brass ended was a square edge, sharp at the end of the neck. If the nose of the bullet was a smidge too big it shaved a chunk of lead while it was being inserted. Caused chambering...
