    It's all factory powder and it's all "canister" powder. The difference is whether it is factory new sold as factory new or pulldown/unused powder not sold as factory new but maybe as "Surplus" or "Pulldown".

    Couple of things to keep in mind. Especially if you are ladle casting but this is true for each style - tin oxidizes first, so you will get a skim of tin on the top of you melt. Wood flux will take out impurities, float them to the top. Tin needs...

    Have a machinist remove the bevel......or have a machinist turn a flat washer and D&T the sizer punch with a 4-40 hole and use a CS screw to hold it on. The easiest is to have the bevel removed. I've done that to all mine and haven't missed them...

    How can there be splatter with a bullet and gases exiting the bore? Anything ahead of the bullet is moving at impact velocity away from point of impact. When you vacate a tube at velocity, what do you think fills that void, and how? Do you think it...

    I would sure prefer smokeless power igniting than black powder. Smokeless wouldn't be nearly as exciting.

    Good rule of thumb. You want Brinnel around 2 points below your velocity level numbers. Examples, 1400 fps, 12 Bn. 1600 fps, 14 Bn. 1800 fps, 16 Bn. 2000 fps, 18 Bn. You get the idea.

    Decisions, decisions. The one pound LYMAN/RCBS/SAECO and others are fine, for small batches or specialty alloys you want to keep track of. Such as Linotype or pure lead. The corn cob style cast irons are great as well and come out about 1 pound...

    No caliper is as accurate as a micrometer - it has to do with the way they are made and the slack inherent in each. Get a micrometer and learn to use it. Otherwise listen to Outpost and shoot what you have.

    Unfortunately Bullberry is out of business. They made my 25 Krag AI barrel. Look to Mike Bellam or to Match Grade Machine for barrels.

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!
