    And it's not a thermostat, it's a control. It controls the power going to the element, with no feedback from the element, so it is not a thermostat, which has a feedback loop. There is a bimetal strip involved that heats up according to the power...

    I saw an ad on EvilBay for an H&G 4-banger in #50 that went for abut $50 - not bad for a dang good boolit. H&G made a ton of those, so they are fairly abundant, and show up often. Lyman 358495 too.

    Echo replied to a thread Need a 6.5 boolit in Cast Boolits
    Your 260 has a 256 bore? That's 257 Roberts territory. In any case, we'll see what turns up. I bought the 145-grainer from Swede, should receive it in a day or two, or whenever. Also ordered a 264 size die set, and will graduate up to a 265 or 266...

    Son just told me he has (as a surprise!) has a 1968 Winchester 264 Winchester mag - has a chum w/6.5 Creedmore, and son will be getting a 260 Rem shortly. So. I need a good 6.5 mold to supply these guys. Suggestions?
