    Have to disagree with that Waksupi, respectfully. I have 4 Taurus' all top quality -- granted newest one is 20 years old but mine are great. Best cast Bullet shooter I've got is a 6" barrel 357 model 66 (I think 66)... But still....WOW. I have...

    I have had bullseye stick to everything, and I've never tried h110, but luckily with 296, it doesn't stick, or even "cut" powder in my measure ( lyman 55). that's good to know that blue dot should be good at that power level. I am not trying to get...

    I am thinking about making up a mix of about 80 clipon, 20 pure, and 3pewter (pounds. should be 2%sb 3-3.5%sn) I have a similar mix with 4.5% tin, and shoot it at 1300 ish fps out of my 44mag SBH, and it could stand to be just a little bit softer,...

    mega, yeah, lol, that seems a wee bit off. maybe they were using a 2 inch barrel? thanks for the advice. I am going to do like I said above, start at 14, and use it if it burns clean, if not, i'll go up a bit.. I have also been wanting to try 4227,...

    yep, I would think it would just smear it into a more uniform coating of lead, that would then be harder to remove. you should try a different lube, well, I would like to know what lube you were using in the first place, what size do you size them...

    not sure if this is the right forum but I was wondering if anyone had a recipe using household items to make a case cleaner that I could just put the cases in a Tupperware container with it, and shake to clean? I am trying a mix of lemon juice and...

    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?

    works in my 44 mag at least to about 1250-1300! ( 275gr boolit, 21grs of 296, 7.5" barrel )and it will expand at that speed too. with the right lube ( I use a softer lube) and proper sizing, my barrel will stay almost shiny clean too, no leading! my...

    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.

    me too, but in this situation, if he doesn't add it back, he wont have enough antimony in this batch, and then too much in the next batch!, I would put it back in with the original stuff, and add a haandfull of dry sawdust, and a bit of wax helps...

    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...
