    waksupi replied to a thread .243 losing popularity? in Our Town
    There are three chamberings that should last for eternity. They are the .243, the .308, and the .358 Win. Why? They are all based on the same brass, all are easy to reform to the desired design, and with the three, you can hunt the world.

    Probably not needed, you are correct. A couple years ago, I did a restock job on an original. I had a tough time getting the cheek piece inlay out. I got it heated enough to pop out, and it appeared to have a pitch and asphaltum adhesive holding it...

    I use Unique for all my CB rifle loads, from the .243 Win. -> the .45-70 Govt. (not in the same amounts though). I get clean burning, accurate results in all, else I would be looking for another propellant.

    I epoxy them, and cut small silver nails to tack them in place. When you drill holes for them, slightly countersink, then peen the silver head into the flare, then file or sand smooth. Pretty much invisible. Just use some of your scrap silver, cut...

    Devcon has a tendency to change dimensions. Don't be surprised if you have to do some scraping on the bedding when you have had the metal out of the stock for very long.

    Maven replied to a thread Boolits in a .243 Win? in Cast Boolits
    Krash..., You may well find that gas checks for .243" CB's are difficult to find, as that caliber was never as popular as say .30cal.'s. If so, once you obtain a mould, I suggest you size to the dimension your rifle's bore requires, but shoot them...

    DCB, 25 gr. FFFg or Pyrodex P (loose powder) is a good place to start as is the use of a greased wool over powder wad. If you're using Pyrodex RS (loose powder) or FFg, increase the charge (volume) to "30" gr. Btw, there's nothing wrong with using...

    I have an early, i.e., "black box," Lee Loader that came with a red plastic version of that priming tool. Although it is completely functional, the handle may be the weak spot in the design.

    Bill, I've successfully used Ly. #245496, an 87gr. Loverin in my .243Win. for years. Powder charges are typically low, usually 14 - 15gr. IMR 4198 or 9.5 - 10.0gr. Unique, but accuracy is excellent and I get little/no bore leading in my Ruger #1. ...
