    the 314 is well suited to the 7.65 argie round. the K-31 has a completely different throat/bore/groove dimensions than any of the others you mention, it will like a silhouette design.

    N-110 is like our 2400. in use not exact burn speed. as I remember VV put out a load manual for cast bullets and N-110 is the prominent powder used in the manual. I would contact them or find one of those manuals. I wouldn't enlarge the flash...

    runfiverun replied to a thread Just asking ? in Cast Boolits
    lee's manual is telling you an engineer number that deals with shear stress numbers. your supporting the alloy in a steel tube. so your deformation comes from the back of the bullet going forward. avoiding that by delaying the high pressure until...

    you can cast just as fast by hand as with the machine. faster actually. your not giving up anything by buying a magma mold, they are top notch and hold up to tons of casting.

    easier to leave the door unlocked than It is to replace the stuff and the window too. what is in the truck varies throughout the year. generally a model 92 in something that starts in 4 is under the back seat. there is a shotgun out there...

    back in the old days they used tin with their lead. I would bet 25 or 30-1 would be more than enough with the P/C applied. I realize a pound of tin would only make like 5-600 boolits.

    you can squish a gas check up in diameter all you need is pressure. I push 8mm checks on 8mm boolits up to 358 all the time, it's how I make 140gr gas checked wad cutters.

    runfiverun replied to a thread Just asking ? in Cast Boolits
    no they can't. the harder alloy's are compensating for mold design. you have different states of fitment, and a design that relies totally on mechanical fitment needs a harder alloy to fight and resist the deformation acceleration and lead...

    nope it will help there too. many of the jacketed 45 colt bullets are already sized to 452. the 45 acp' bullets are generally sized to 451. I didn't even bother measuring my Ruger 45's anything. I just shoot 452 in it and it likes it. or not,...

    it's a polymer. it just isn't cross-linked like Hy-Tek is. Hy-Tek is the next experiment, and eventually powder coated jacketed bullets. I'm still working on the prep for the P/C, and will try some half jacketed revolver stuff first.. yeah I...

    they like the high spots in the wheat fields around here. it just has to be a small hump 2-3' higher than the surrounding 1-200 yds.

    their heart sits up behind their shoulder. a lung shot is going to be a wait a while thing, they have about double the lung capacity of a horse. punching the shoulder into the heart is better except you lose the 3 lbs of heart hash for brunch, and...

    it turns white as it oxidizes. I have been coating some of my jacketed bullets with NuFinish. it seems to cut down on copper in the barrel, but the powder fouling seems harder to clean out.

    your done for. I could write a list of what casting stuff I got and you could shoot for that, but 10 other guy's would just write a bigger one. so i'll go with welcome to the site.

    BB shot and improved cylinder will let you get them at 35 yds. 1400-1450 fps is a good velocity to target, it provides enough energy through velocity to do the job.

    your gonna be effective at anything from 1800-2,000 muzzle velocity. you don't need fancy and you don't need cutting edge accuracy. the 4759 will get the job done no problem. just sight in to your first cold shot at 100 yds, then note where the...

    you'll definitely need 2 lubes. I do up here but not as far up the heat index. you'd do well with the red/blue above 50 and something much softer below.

    yes I don't try for a heavy coat either. I did at first then realized I wasn't getting a good smooth coating. make sure you put a little lube on them before you size them. it sucks melting drilling beating them out of the die.
