    BT: Where have you been? I asked that question early on in this thread. There are some good deals on Mossbergs with 3 1/2" chambers. I think 535's though. Nonetheless, the jump to rifling is the same which was the question... how is slug...

    Nice shooting Gp! Looking good! best group or not that is a bragging group. Problem is now you have to do it again! I just posted on another thread that so far I've done better with the Lee 1 oz. than 7/8 oz. which is opposite to what most people...

    My Lee 1 oz. slugs as cast are doing okay in Winchester wads. Sized down then paper patched up they do quite well to 50 yards though still need to do more testing. I think they have too much taper to them as cast. Far more than wad petals. Same...

    Yeah I think I paid $15.00 Canadian for 25 last time and that was a few years ago. Regardless, too much for target or practice. If anyone is wondering though I got sub 6" groups at 100 yards from my Browning BPS by the time I finished the box. They...

    As a lover of old S&W's, that's a dandy! I don't think I could have turned away from that deal either. I only own one S&W in 38 S&W. A pre Terrier model 5 screw. It's a dandy in the fact it has a flat mainspring. The smoothest little 5 shooter I've...

    Dang right on that! I cut the tips of 4 fingers to the bone on my left hand (interior of 1st knuckles on pinky, ring, middle fingers and thumb) when I was 12 and the scar tissue still sends waves of pain if I hit them the wrong way...

    waksupi replied to a thread case sizing lube in Cast Boolits
    I dump the cases in a container, get a few drops of Ballistol on my fingers, and run my fingers through the container. Does a good job of lubing. For necks, I have a small container of moly, and dip about every third case mouth in it. That leaves...

    I can't imagine how she thought an 11 year old would keep quiet. Boasting to friends is normal at that age. Felony neglect of a child goes to all the other children on the bus, not just that one.

    Choose one and practice until you know where it will hit. Either will kill a deer, given proper placement.

    "Ditto" to TC FAN's text. I use the RCBS #32-98-SWC and enough WW-231 to prompt 950-1000 FPS in most of my shooting in 327 Federal. I have tried the full-tilt loadings with jacketed bullets and AA-9 or Alliant 2400 powders, and the muzzle reports...

    Randy... I have the same keychain! 16 ga. I think but the slug is made out of zinc (I think). Pretty sure it isn't lead. My belief is that slugs should be sized to about 0.735" so they fit pretty much any normal factory gun but of course they...

    So I'm sold. Now I just need to find one. I see them on the web, but no telling how old of production those are. I think I want a new production gun. I'm a dinosaur. This will be my first 9mm, and my first plastic pistol of any sort.

    My possibles bag is made from blanket material. All my shooting bags are leather. The Metis and Ute did wool shooting bags, and there are examples from a few other tribes. Whites generally used a bark tanned leather.

    Randy the reason I like the Brenneke Classic is because of the wad stack ~ hard felt like material with plastic washers on either side. Nothing there to distort. I've seen the Gualandi wads crush somewhat off center which I think is due to the long...

    What Hickory said! Who knows what powder the factory uses and if and when they change powders. Seems like a lot of work to open hulls to dump powder unless you plan to just cut them off to get the powder. I'd say not worth it even if you knew...

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.
John Taylor - "African Rifles and Cartridges"

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