    I haven't tried it myself but i have read somewhere here in this forum that a thin coat of tumble lube like 45-45-10 or BLL will form a hard shell and hold the soft lube in place.

    I use the Lee handles. I bought an RCBS mold recently and the pins are a lot smaller than the screws on the Accurate mold. Out of curiosity i check if the RCBS handles would fit my Accurate molds and they won't unless you drill the holes.

    Savvy Jack, my Lee F/L die is opposite to yours. I've tried a half dozen die sets in 44-40 now and the Lee F/L die is the largest and works the brass less than the others. Cases that are sized in other brand dies will literally drop into the Lee. ...

    How do you lube these in a lube sizer without a lot of the lube escaping?

    I've owned 2 (and still have 1) Miroku built Winchester 92's and both had .431 bores. I now own a Miroku built Winchester 1873 and the bore on that is .430. I have had no problems with Starline or Winchester Brass. I usually use an appropriately...

    Hi All, It's quite timely that this thread has been resurrected as it's something i have been thinking about the last couple of days. I've been working on loads for my 44-40 and after testing quite a few powders i get the most consistent results...

    Until recently, Hodgdon Universal is AP70N, made for Hodgdon by ADI in Australia. So look for any data that has Hodgdon Universal. Don't substitute the same amount of AP70N for any Unique loads you might find. AP70N is a bit faster and in...

    Another vote for the Accurate 38-250B. My rifle will group under an inch at 55yd with them. 24gn of H4198 gets 1475fps in my 24" barrel. 25gn of H4198 nets 1535fps 26gn of H4198 nets 1595fps

    I have 11 Accurate molds. I love his cast iron 2 and 3 cav molds. For me they just work beautifully. They drop great boolits from the 2nd pour every time and maintain temp very well. I do have a couple of his aluminium molds in 4 and 5 cav and they...

    I have 2 Win/Miroku 92's in 44-40 and both have a .431 bore. From that i assumed they used the same barrel as they do for .44 Magnum (SAAMI spec for .44 Mag rifle is .431). The chambers are quite loose tolerance and I can chamber a round loaded...

    CamoWhamo replied to a thread Win/Miroku 1873 44-40 in Leverguns
    My rifle continues to impress me each time i take it out. I tried a new mold i had made from Accurate. It's a 43-220CC (43-220C with change to the crimp groove). I used 8.0gn of Unique and Lyman Orange Magic Lube. My first 5 fouling shots...

    I have the NOE dies in about 2 dozen sizers. If you're trying to size down .002 or more they can be hard to push though. I sometimes use a flouro polymer sizing lube made by Hi-Tek coating. Here in Aus it comes in a concentrate and you mix about a...

    It appears you have solved your problem but i'll mention a similar issue i once had and what caused it. That bullet is a bore rider style. I had a problem with some not chambering and discovered the nose was .302 and was jamming in the rifling....

    CamoWhamo replied to a thread 45LC bullet lube in Boolit Lube !
    It'll work fine. Remember, less is more with the LLA. You only need to use a small amount and if you can't see the coating that's about right.

    I have had 2 of them and still own one. The bore is .431 on both of them and the Lee .429 200 RNFP does not work well with most powders except Trail Boss which must have enough initial punch to obturate the bullet. I have tried several bullets...
