    RickinTN replied to a thread Sizing question in Cast Boolits
    I have found the easiest way for happiness in both 444 and 45-70 Marlins is a mold from Tom at Accuratemolds in the weight of your choice with his Marlin nose. They are not a bore ride design and work very well for me. With the Lee bullet you are...

    It looks like you have a couple burrs on the edge of the sprue plate, a cotton ball will find them, then just touch the edge with some 400 paper to remove and lube. I use Amsoil 100 synthetic 2 stroke oil on locator pins and sprue screw and plate....

    RickinTN replied to a thread Sizing question in Cast Boolits
    The mold you have is a bore ride bullet. The major diameter of the bullet can be taken care of now, or later with your izing die. If the bullet grows very much the nose may not fit inside your bore? or it may fit better? Only you would know by...

    I'll likely have him cut it back a few inches to provide more wall toward the muzzle. Currently it's a 27" barrel. And a re-crowning is a plus too.

    I have spoken with him on other rebore calibers. I'm wanting to find out if any other member here on the site has ever rebored THIS particular long gun to THIS caliber.

    Ed, most of the Lee’s won’t allow us to modify due to their alignment pin arrangement. We are just looking to play a little. I might consider a Lee if available.

    He's anyone sent a 1867 Swede rolling block that is chambered in 8x58RD to Jes for a rebore to Winchester 40-65? Looking at the specs the rim, base, and the rim thickness appears to present a simple rechamber and straightforward barrel rebore. Am I...

    I bought some medical lead that had cadmium in it. I didn’t know it at the time but that lead was softer than pure lead and melted at 550 degrees. I have to dilute it to make it useable.

    I don't let my Pro-melt get lower than about half way and when I am done, I fill it with alloy and turn it off. It can melt when I turn it on next time.

    Took the 308 out to the range today while it was somewhat warmer today (39 degrees) for a short while. Had a few loads to try. I used Accurate 2015br and Accurate MRP, which should be surplus 4831. Pretty well a full case of the MRP. I have had...

    Duplicating the velocity is only one part of the equation. Duplicating the pressure with the same velocity is the real challenge. Per the owner, Tim Sundles claims that they use proprietary powders in some of their loads to get the performance...

    The JA barrels are should be timed and indexed so it should be a direct screw on. That is the point of the index mark on the receiver and the barrel. Just line up the lines in inspect the headspace. No chambering should be required unless the...

    In a true wildcat situation such as this I would examine the differences in loads between 6mmTCU and 223. That should show you the differences in bore diameter between the two, or what bullet best relates to an 85 gr 6mm from a .223. Then starting...

    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.
