    The problem with a HP's is when it hits bone it stops the bullet expansion. So before all those jump in saying, "Not mine". Just go to a ballistic testing site that has done tests on hollow points that have hit bone as opposed to those that have...

    I don't have a H&G #107, but from the description if you envision a typical 38 caliber wadcutter just in a larger diameter (44 caliber) then you got it, but some real photos would be nice. Actual photos of so many of these old and new cast...

    Actually, I constructed just that type of device for PC projects similar to what you named. I built a prototype curing lamp using a 220V. shortwave infrared tube about 12" long. I sprayed a sheet steel panel to test it out and it heated the...

    Not scientific, but I poured some H110 into a new .222 Rem case and a new (pulled the bullet) Russian 7n6 case, filled both to the bottom of the neck. The weight of the powder was almost identical, with the 7n6 case just about 2 tenths of a grain...

    If you have access to a lathe it is easy to get a mirror polish. Buy undersize dies, then a dab of diamond paste on a wood dowel will smooth them out quickly. Then green compound to a high shine. Yellow compound will make it even more reflective....

    A properly coated and cured bullet does not have to have a gas check to be fired and protected from leading. However, a cast bullet with a gas check base has an imperfect base, it will shoot, but accuracy will suffer. The reason is a bullet is...

    Sorry, but you are mistaken and passing out bad information, obviously based on errors you have made in the powder coating process. A "properly coated and cured polymer" forms a jacket and performs all the duties of a jacket. Being a superior...

    When it comes to hollow points I do not tumble coat, I spray coat and cook on the same tray. I first place a sheet of parchment on my "Bed of Nails" as parchment protects the tray and the powder doesn't build up on the parchment. Next I preheat...
