    We do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. HEBREWS 4:15 Until we are born again, the only kind of temptation we understand is the kind mentioned in James 1:14,...

    I fix them as well, when necessary, or I think they are "good ones" to save. :) Otherwise, many just go into the lube mix or for fluxing. You are not alone. :drinks:

    No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man… 1 CORINTHIANS 10:13 The word temptation has come to mean something bad to us today, but we tend to use the word in the wrong way. Temptation itself is not sin; it is something we are...

    JBinMN replied to a thread Tin in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Well, Maybe you could offer them more than the going market lead price they get for it, for the "tin that is lead to them" & perhaps you will get a deal by doing so. Tin for lead prices, well worth taking the time to ask if you did not. To me...

    Another thing that will can cause a hang fire of this nature is debris in the case (lint, dirt, cleaning material, insects, etc. that separate/block the flash from the powder yet burn themselves from the flash. That causes the delay until the...

    Concur with the above posts but will add that I like to slightly HP my cast hunting bullets which for velocities above 2000 fps are cast of a softer alloy of COWW + 2% tin then mixed 50/50 with pure lead. While I have modified by shortening the...

    We are used to Makarovs being 9x18 just like we are used to Luger being 9x19 in fact they were made in several different calibers, these are just the most common. "FYI, I do have a 9x18 Makarov High Cap, but it seems to like Meister .365 RN...

    I do find, and appreciate, the data you post from your velocity testing on this thread and others. It is interesting because the variations amply demonstrate to those who don't know or don't have a grip on it the fact that there are variations,...

    You will have no argument from me. I agree & understood both your posts. I see that you mention & "specified " the word "Lead" as in cast boolits. The OP did not. As you pointed out, there "is" a difference in whether or not you can do the same...

    Do you think you could take some pictures of that large hole turret showing the top from both the side & from above & post them here? I would appreciate seeing them if you can do so. Thanks!

    Yes, they all start to "stack" at higher pressure/velocity and cause deformation and or misalignment in the bore which translates to imbalance in the bullet during flight. During flight the greater the imbalance the greater the centrifugal force...
