    I say "almost shiny clean" only because I use a homemade moly- mix lube, and moly leaves a bit of grey residue, of which is no consequence.

    the only way to get WW's consistent is BIG batches that will last a long time before you need to re-test what you have, and add tin or what have you as necessary, I usually do a minimum of 120ish lbs, sometimes more

    wwell, in lymans 3rd, the min load is 14 max 16 for a 265 gr saeco boolit, but it has a bit more bearing surface than the keith style, so I am sure it is fine, that and the devastator info goes to 15 or 15.5 max, and it usually weighs 275 by the...

    so BjeffV, to get 1100-1200fps, with a 275gr keith ( actual weight) in my SBH bisley hunter 7.5", would 14grs get it there? I know it should according to your pressure gun, but what about in a revolver, with the flash gap, and the heavier boolit...

    mega, I am shooting 275gr ( actual weight) keith style boolits out of my SBH bisley hunter, and I was thinking 15 grains would be a good charge, hoping for maybe 1100-1200 max fps, what do you think?

    Shot placement is everything! That type of lead boolet has been taking deer sized critters for a lot of years. That velocity you have achieved will do fine at 100 yds.Robert

    also, make sure your sprue plate swings freely, this gives the air in the mold a way to escape, and will help with the rounded edges, I just had that problem with a new noe, it was mainly with the rear cavity. some molds you can get away with having...

    you need to add something, like 2 stroke oil, and maybe some grease, well, I dunno if that would work for tumble lube, but you cant count on just wax to do anything but lead.

    for elk and bear, I would go with the noe 358009 280 grainer, you could push it at 2100-2200 and I imagine it would pass through all but the biggest of bears, I think lyman no 2 would do that without heat treating, and you would benefit with a bit...

    I actually have to do this with about 24 44 mag loads that I sized at .430, and they leaded, so I am going to use a socket or pvc pipe to pull them, and have the expander already in the press, so I can pull expand, then seat a 431 ( which does not...

    yep, throw the " oatmeal" back in, along with a good amount of sawdust, and some wax will help too, but watch out! it will burst into flames! I just let it burn out, that usually works good, you may have to do it twice, since you are re-introducing...

    that's why I catch almost all my boolits, I have a 6'x 2'6" or so piece of steel leaned at a 45 degree angle, and most of the boolits end up in the dirt at the bottom of the steel. since I got the green marbles sight, I have been shooting so much...
