    I remember the data that Skeeter Skelton published--and soon retracted--in Shooting Times. Given my experience with the 32 H&R in a Ruger SSM and a S&W Model 16-4, I thought his powder weights might get him into trouble with the liability lawyers...

    One Achille's Heel not mentioned so far concerning the Marlin 1894 examples in 44 Magnum is their rifling twist rate. For some reason, Marlin elected to use the old 44/40 WCF twist rate of 1 turn in 38 inches. This works fine with the 44/40's...

    At the last count I was near 50 molds. Very few SC, a ton of DC and quite a few multi cavity Mihec creations.. The guality of his molds is just so much higher than the competition it is a joke to compare them. Yes the brass molds weigh a ton but...

    While I am impressed with what Ed is doing and it still makes me laugh when I read the size and velocity of his projectiles, or maybe giggle is a more correct yet less manly term. However, I am more interested in using shotgun hulls or brass shotgun...

    Years ago and long gone. It was lighter than lead, would float, but the weight of the lead kept some at the bottom of the pot - a cast iron pot on a Coleman stove.

    If you limit your shots to 100yds you are good to go. Minute of dinner plate. Stretch beyond that and you want a more accurate load.

    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Apple season! in Cookin' Recipe's
    Most apples require 200+ hours of freeze over the winter to bear. Peaches don't. Northern lowbush blueberries do, Southern highbush blueberries only require at most 40-60 hrs freeze. There are only a couple of apples that don't require a lot of...

    A good reminder - It is easy to become immersed in the real issues of life here - family, babies, bills, houses, and all the reality that we must deal with daily - and maintain a God perspective in all of it is a real challenge.

    Doug, have you throated any 9mm sig handgun barrels? I'm looking at getting a 365 and since I don't own any other 9mm barrels, if it needs be throated I'd send it to you.

    Anyone own one? In my 63 years I've never owned a 9mm. Yet this one attracts me. It is appropriately sized for the cartridge and holds ten rounds in a standard magazine. Smaller and slimmer than a .38 J-frame in my front pocket. I fondled one two...

    Just get rid of all that undersized 9mm brass, problem solved. Unless you have a woman in the house, being the 9mm is a ladies caliber, you will need to keep some around. ;-)

    When I did the sheet lead it had something on it that turned black and grainy and sank to the bottom of my pot - I'm guessing something in the glue? Wax takes care of the true oxidation.

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!
