    Ok... Shot some groups with the new boolit and it shoots awful so far. Probably my fault as I was out of 45/45/10 and made a small amount "on the fly". I'm sure I had too much floor wax and too little alox. This was the only load that ever really...

    A friend gave me about a 100 of the Lee .440 for my BP pistol and you are right they have a small flat spot on the ball. May be why I was taken back with the small nub left on the .535's. Thanks much for your help and I apologize to Beagle333 for...

    Mine is a 2008 50AE, anything less then 29.0 gr of H4227 under a 335 gr bullet will not cycle the slide. It really likes 29.9gr H4227 but that is a little above the book numbers but no pressure signs on the primer or case. Mine only gets J words,...

    I use these and have cut them down to fix in my toaster oven pan. They work great even if the boolit lay's on its size like 223 and 172's tend to do. When cool you can brush off most of the melted powder so they are cleaner the next time and the...

    Tumbling them might be the answer but I just shoot BP for fun so will give the sprue up a try. I have plenty of commercial if I decided to hunt with Round Ball. Might also try trimming the sprue off with some trimmers I have for taking the sprue...

    I ran some 0.535's today. My first go at round ball, what a hoot, cut sprue, and ball fell out of mould did this 60 times. Really nice with pure lead, also did some split shot while I was at it. Off topic question. How do you clean up the ball...

    Well, I hit a dead end. I found the information but an interweb search found that the address I had was now a Walgreens and the 1800 number was used by Chinese scammers and the company T.S.A. does not exist. Sorry.

    Cern is in a state of emergency right now. Apparently the particle of 'holycowieium' is becoming unstable. The bonds of 'true love' are weakening with age. If these bonds fail, all of the particle could be taken into the 'state of matter court'...
