    Agree with the above. No hollow point. 50/50 ww & pure lead with 2 % tin for alloy. Works great in 30-30, 300 Savage, and 308.

    HangFireW8 replied to a thread Case Lub in Reloading Equipment
    For rifle, I use Imperial and wipe each one off. For handgun, I lube every fifth case lightly with Imperial and use carbide or TiN dies, then do nothing. As was already posted, lubed cases increase bolt thrust. It can also decrease lockup time...

    Besides printers lead, there was "block tin", surplus refrigerator radiators made almost entirely of tin, wiping solder for auto body & fender shops, toothpaste tubes made of pure tin... tin was plenty available back then, most anywhere.

    HangFireW8 replied to a thread toyota in Our Town
    I would be torqued too if hit with a bill like that. But I would also seek a second opinion and Toyota's help too. Fortunately my Toyota is unafraid to conform to Asian reliability stereotypes.

    This is the anti-cba site. Or at least it was. Some infiltration has occurred, with cba'ers glibly telling newbies how to get it done with benchrest dies and benchrest barrels with benchrest Chambers. There was, IIRC, some postal matches here. ...

    Yes, thanks Maven. I thought these 125's were no longer available. I'm down to my last 120 and thought that would be it. Outstanding accuracy at 3000 fps for me as well, moderate pressures too.

    I hold on the outside of the lever as well, for thumper loads, anyway. Also curl my trigger finger and use just the tip. If it hits the trigger guard it just bends backwards.
