    You didn't say what gas system length you are using. In MY AR, I shoot the Lee 309-200-R subsonic with H4198, at below book loads. I has a pistol length gas system. I seriously doubt that H110 can be made to function because of that particular...

    All you have to do is clean up the top, dip the lead out into ingots, pour off the last bit and clean the junk out of the pot. Start with a clean pot and clean ingots and the inclusions will go away. That skim on top does not hurt a...

    Why are you melting these bricks down? They are already perfect for storage till needed. I make 25 pound bricks out of my smeltings. Then make smaller ingots when I alloy for casting material.

    Since it came from source unknown, it might have zinc in the nozzle. It has a higher melting point so you might be able to help the heat a bit with a plumbers torch on the spout. I did not have a zinc problem but pure lead plugged my spout and would...

    lwknight replied to a thread How heavy ? in Cast Boolits
    I would stay mid range for ordinary non dangerous game. I know from experience that light bullets lose too much velocity to perform well at long ranges and heavy bullets don't have as good of a trajectory as well as that they kick more. I loved...

    You can cast perfect bullets with pure lead if everything else is right. I only cast pure lead for sluggers but they come out near perfect without doing anything special.

    It will do that if you have a high antimony content and not enough tin. You can cast bullets just fine without tin so if the alloy is pretty hard, it just might be antimony. Add 1% tin to the mix and watch it clear up like magic if it is in fact...

    jimkim replied to a thread RCBS RS press in Reloading Equipment
    The older ones, like that one and mine, are basically a cast iron RCBS JR-3 with RS written on them, instead of JR. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    All the lead pipes I get have brass sleeves and drain rings. I seldom ever find iron. Sometimes I find copper but never sort it out from the brass even though I might get a little more for it.

    Dave Manson of Manson Reamers ( has the prints and makes the reamer. I would suggest that you specify a slight change in neck diameter to .335" to make it more compatible with nearly any 38 Special parent brass. Just tell...

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one that felt this way. When I first saw it, I got a little PO'ed. After a few minutes I decided to ask around. You never know until you ask. After all, I am wrong at times. Thanks for all the posts. Sent from my VS880...

    I was on Gunbroker looking at the lever actions. I put "JM" in my search terms. I noticed something odd. Someone is selling a "JM" stamped 94 Winchester. He made it a point to mention it. I know what the "JM" means on a Marlin, but this is new to...
