    dougader replied to a thread Drying Brass in Cast Boolits
    I deprime my brass before I clean it with citric acid. After rinsing, it only takes about 10-15 minutes in a 170F oven or in the sun to dry the cases completely. Unless you guys are leaving the primers in the cases, then I don't know why you need...

    I've heard it said that WST seems to smoke less when shooting cast bullets with traditional lubes, too. Apparently, it just doesn't burn up the lube like other powders???

    I first read of this in, I think, an early 1990's issue of Shooting Times magazine. Their load was with a 148 grain swaged HBWC and 2.1 grains WW231. The author said it was more fun than a barrel of monkeys, or some such... I had a few of the...

    2.1 grains W231 with 125 - 158 grain swc fired from S&W 64, 2" barrel. Low noise, recoils like a 22 LR. Make sure of soft dirt or similar back drop as these slow moving slugs will bounce right back at you otherwise.

    I had some 454 brass left over after the sale of my last 454 revolver. As made, it wouldn't chamber in the 45 Colt, but I sized about 1/2" in a 44 Spl die, then dropped in some powder, and over powder card, about 200 grains of #8 shot, then an over...

    I was looking at the 300 BLK just yesterday and wondering why a 7.62x39mm Improved wouldn't make a better case for both supersonic and subsonic loads. It would get rid of the extreme case taper and supply a little extra oomph for deer hunting with...

    A group buy on a 135-140 grain Sledgehammer mould from Mihec just closed on Single Actions, but there's another open for 130 grain solid and 123 to 126 grain hp's. I'm in on the 2nd one. ...

    I handled a couple yesterday as well. They're fine, but I'll keep my G19. I carry concealed, and the butt of the gun is the hardest part to conceal so this "Commander" style perplexes me, truth be told. If I want a full size frame I'll take the...

    How much time would a guy waste with that 2nd strike capability? Just keep pulling the trigger.... click, click, click, click, click, click, until your attacker runs up and slices your throat? Clear the offending round and fire a fresh round. I...

    Just for the heck of it, buy the cheapest box of factory ammo at a local shop and see how it goes.... white box Winchester 240 grain or whatever. You're still puttering about and haven't yet done what the makers of the weapon have suggested. I...

    Zuess/Glenn on the Single Actions forum killed a nice deer with this bullet fired from a 30 Herrett/Handgun combo. DRT. The bullet absolutely makes the difference. My old hunting buddy bought a 270 Weatherby for a combo muley/antelope hunt in...

    I shot lots of cast in my G21 and G30. Never a problem with leading. All loads were less than 925 fps. The one thing I noticed was that all my "target" or mouse fart loads for the 1911 would not reliably run in the Glocks. For example, a 230...
