    How are you going to damage the rifling with something that melts at boiling water temps and is vastly softer than brass? Only if you try to remove it with a steel rod, and I assume you know better than that!

    Belling or expanding the case mouth is important for soft cast boolits. Case inside chamfering is important for condom bullets so they don't catch on the edge of the case. This can crumple the case if the neck/shoulder is soft.

    I use 'Feast Watson' gloss wipe on poly. This is a very durable polyurethane finish. First take back to bare wood, apply 2 coats of 'Feast Watson' sanding sealer then 4 coats of wipe-on poly. I used this method to refinish my 1885 Martini Henry...

    "May those who come behind us find us faithful" - I remember singing the song and being impressed with it but don't remember the rest. But the sentiment is clear, to be found faithful to the end is a challenge for all of us. May my grandchildren...

    +1 on the smokeless 'no-no', I have several rifles made pre-1885 and they only get black powder loads. Both may only reach the same pressure peak BUT the black is a gradual rise, while smokeless is a sharp rise. Typically heavy lead boolits are used...

    I have long been amazed by the fact that the book of James tells us that if we submit to God and resist Satan he will flee from us. That is Biblical truth. But it also repeatedly tells us to flee temptation. If Satan himself will flee from me -...

    A different miracle than I ever expected - but LOML called me this AM and told me that Allstate has paid us $5K for the 08 Honda Fit that I killed! We went $2K over the budget for the 1017 Fit that replaced the '08 - and it only has 35,500 miles on...

    If the bullet " fits " will have an awful lot to do with your chances for a smile. People who shoot sub-sized bullets blame their results on lube ( a lot of different kinds of lube ). The bullet must fit. Ben

    If you want clean cases and don't care about shiny get some citric acid. A dilute citric acid bath not only cleans the brass but it chemically stabilizes it. You can find citric acid in the canning section of your grocery or hardware store and it...

    Coming from a family of hunters, I had no input from any family or friends about what a good handgun brand was. Sure, I'd heard of Colt and Smith & Wesson for years (who hadn't?). I'd owned a few handguns and had worked my way up to a Dan Wesson...

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!
