    That's a mighty tall order from splashing all 4 corners and everything inbetween to 3 inch groups.

    Slit one open with a knife and see how dry the epoxy is. If real dry you may be able to scrap the major portion of it away. Evven hitting it with a hammer may dislodge a good bit of it. Yeah wear glove so ask not to get in on your finger, maybe...

    Minuteshaver, that reminds me of some of those switch barrel rifles, the ones from Saur. For the cost of an extra barrel you can almost buy another rifle. The price of the barrels aren't in step with the initial cost of the rifle.

    I believe some of those old war horses had oversized chambers from the get go. SAAMI redid lot of specs too. Most the reloading manuals say the 8mm-06 is not much of an improvement over the standard 8x57. I do understand why many owners done that...

    Lags that makes me wonder what if you anneal steel cases would they last longer? Second question, what if you annealed the whole case, would it in it's softer state be stronger then a brass case?

    That 358 Norma is an underated cartridge. It is indeed a very good round. Right now I don't think I'd by a Remington anything. They seemed to have gone downhill pretty bad.

    I can certainly agree with you that Pyrodex is corrosive. Very corrosive. I quit using it years ago. I don't find Triple 7 to be that way. What's your opinion on Triple 7? So where did you write that article on that Knight 32 that I read?

    When you cast, and want your bullets to stay shiny, put them in a can of soapy water. Dump them out, and let dry. The soap film makes a barrier, and they won't oxidize.

    You have to change the ejector on the frame to a 9mm one and it's best to have the 9mm slide stop lever to insure the slide holds open on the last shot. You certainly use the 45 acp one, but it may not hold open. Doesn't have anything to do with the...

    It came (or at least mine did off eBay) with an adjustable cylinder, but the diameter is really too large for pistol charges. Mine is a rifle measure, not pistol. I have all 3 of the ones pictured here.

    Al, recoil is an equal and opposite reaction to the mass leaving the barrel, thus the heavier the boolit the more the recoil. I basically use two boolits in my Encore, although I have a bunch more molds. I have the Gould HP 457122 and an old Lee...

    ................I would really advise you to slug your bore first. Lyman, RCBS, or Saeco might meet your needs but if a 'fatter' size is needed you're most likely going to have to go to NOE or Accurate. Quite a lot of work was done with the 6.5x55...

Signature


The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
