    I like the 650 for cranking out 9mm, was slow with lubed boolits, lube would clog the seating die. Switched to power coat and all is well.

    The best accuracy I’ve ever gotten was .005 Dist. From boolit to rifling and holding my hand on top of scope. Once I got the powder right with harmonics of that particular rifle barrel combination. Watch breathing and shoot between heart beats.

    Hossfly replied to a thread ladder test in Cast Boolits
    I do this the same as land owner, and once you know what it will do with that freebore your next trial you can seat boolits at that free bore. It’s mostly how that barrel harmonics play when that particular boolit exits the muzzle.

    Hossfly replied to a thread Not Happy Today in Cast Boolits
    Looks like your mold is not up to temperature, get it hot, I use a hot plate and up to around 400’. Then start pouring fast and let sprue puddle on top, several cycles, when up to temp drop boolits on dry cotton towel or you can drop into water...
