    RP started a thread 50 cal inline ? in Muzzleloading.
    My son got himself a 50 cal inline rifle and has been gathering info. He came to me today and was asking if I had any 50 cal hollow base bullets so he could fire lap the barrel. From what he has been reading online if he fire laps the barrel it will...

    Note* everything I load with lead is kept below 1000fps. that could be where we differ in the opinion. generally diameter and shape are king of how things work, but it depends on the launch. I don't shoot much of my lead below 1,000 fps except...

    if it's a random issue and you have eliminated the cases being mixed, or different lengths etc. then I would look at the boolit itself. you might just have one cavity that isn't quite closing all the way and it is a bit larger in the exposed...

    all those little notched pieces have a letter on the end of them. the notch lined up on a bar to make the letters line up into words. the type setter would lay it all out. when I buy lino-type from our print shop here it comes as spacers or the...

    key holing is a function of stability. your either spinning the boolit fast enough to be stable or you ain't. the grip on the rifling will determine whether your spinning the boolit enough or not. too small = skidding and non stabilization. ...

    Jim that's more like what I use. over speeding a large meplated boolit into flesh and bone will give you a very dead animal. you'll have to look for some of the parts and pieces but it will be dead. I remember hitting a grouse too far down when...

    the white is lead oxide it generally forms from being exposed to water. I do a lot of term storage of normal lubed boolits, 5 gallon buckets do a great job. if I were to put some stuff up for true long term storage I would just do a coat of...

    I probably shop a bit weird. if stuff is on sale I calculate how much we could use by the expiration and buy that much. we might go to 2-3 different stores when we are down in town and sometimes go back to the first to pick up those 3-4 things...

    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...

    left one. tin is the answer to all undersized molds a nice oblong shaped sorta right sized too big boolit is exactly what I want from my molds. i'll take the time to make nice round ones the correct size. do what you want.

    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...
