    I learned that all shot shell hulls are not the same diameter internally. and that not all wads are the same diameter externally and they might even be larger in the middle than at the gas seal. this can be good and or bad depending on the hull...

    Tomme beat me. 43-44 for 125's and 42 for 150's I have used both I and H type for both loads and usually do well depending on the powder at that point in time.

    I think you have an error. You have the Lee 205 90775 listed as a 309 mold. I think that one is an 8 mm , .329 dia. mold ? ? Ben

    That's kind of where I started, but the Turk bulks differently than the other powders. Get's you close in the ball park.

    nope it's just a coating. I shoot a CZ-75b and use the alloy I mentioned above. I size to 358. get a good lube groove design or a slick sided boolit and skip the LEE T/L designs.

    16 BHN for commercial cast sounds correct. it's usually 2/6/92 alloy.

    it's the round shooting into the chamber and hitting the end where the case mouth goes. I'm thinking you can smack the back of the pistol and chamber the round. and it doesn't happen every time. throating probably wouldn't help that, it doesn't...

    an old cookie sheet, an electrical box, or the bottom off another coffee can will work until you get a saw blade. if you were near me I'd drop a couple of blades off to you.

    I use the porta band. for lino pigs I use a hatchet and 2 2x4's. I notch the flat corners then flip it over and whack it on the point with the back of the hatchet, it snaps right off. then I just toss the pieces in the pot and make ingots out...

    I use the large ones as gas checks when I swage 223 bullets. other than that they go in a bucket to see if the scrap yard will take them some day.

    It's reserved for deserving customers. :p It is in high demand, short supply. Not even that spendy, around $22.50 here. I don't care for sour mash, so haven't tried that.

    get all of that lead you can, and keep on getting it for as long as you can get it. one continuous source of same lead alloy is a godsend. it simplifies everything because you can then figure out what you need to make your house blend. a good...
