    blow bye in the throat will show more smoke than bout anything else. Unique is a different animal than most other powders out there the way it burns in the barrel is a whole bunch different than how it burns in the open. it also burns in the...

    'up to' depends on too much for the alloy alone to dictate that. up to 2700 is easy. up to 2200 and hitting the target is another story. I worry more about absolute fitment and manipulate my alloys towards that end rather than an final bhn. a...

    Time. things happen over time. 1 they reached their final BHN. 2 antimonial alloys can grow larger slightly over time. the other possibility is the tumble coating was just enough increase to make them work.

    most all of those ranch rifles come with 308 barrels. they just oversized the throats to handle the larger diameter 310 bullets.

    runfiverun replied to a thread Next Step in Cast Boolits
    I'm real scientific about my alloy. I air cool for pistol stuff and water drop for my rifles. this gives about 11 bhn for the air and about 18 for the water. your range scrap is probably a 10 bhn and would maybe cast a little better with some...

    I hate drip art. if the lee pot drips it's usually right when I stick the mold under it then I get a funky spot on the nose. or more likely I stop and empty the drip out of the cavity then my rhythm is all messed up. it isn't that hard to fix...

    runfiverun replied to a thread using Lyman 450 in Boolit Lube !
    only way to find out is to not use it. it doesn't hurt anything to add the extra coating lube over the wax lube. and quite often a tumble lube will actually help accuracy. in many of my long nosed rifle boolits I very lightly lube the nose...

    Mine are round butted 3" and 4". I have been contemplating ordering two of the wondersights so I can get them sighted to POA/POI. No more than I shoot them though, it isn't all that hard to hold off a few inches. Robert
