    I recall Winchester .22 Shorts for $.41 and .22 Short HPs for $.42. Try finding a brick of Winchester .22 Short ammo now. Mission impossible. In high school, one old lady ran a small country store. She always carried Peters .22 Shorts for $.50 a...

    Another manager in my company left work a year ago February to find his daughter dead in the parking lot. She'd been clean for a year. It's not something I would wish on my worst enemy, but the responsibility rightly falls on the person likely to...

    I still have several of the Lee group buy custom molds that have never been used. No plans to use them, as MP and NOE now offer most of those designs. Tony

    I am really enjoying my JES-rebored Win 94 in 38/55. It is the 3-groove form that Mr. Ocumpah considers "OEM", and it has shot very well with plain-base Lee 250 grasin flatnoses and with both the RCBS and the Lyman flatnose 250 grainers with gas...

    Would you be interested in a M96 Swedish Mauser in 6.5x55 in the same NRA grade as a trade option? I can also provide dies and new brass. Also willing to travel to do a Face to Face transfer on my 03FFL. I'm at the office but I can upload photos...

    Since it's a S & W, I'd go with a Lyman 358477 PB and have it hollow pointed. You may run into problems with cylinder length with a Keith 358429. Had a Model 28 with a cylinder that would barely take them length wise. Or, pick up a 356156 and...

    My old 1894 is 1:38" twist with microgroove and it shoots boolits up to about 280 grs. quite well. Heavier and they lose stability before 100 yards. I've shot 265 gr. to 200 yards with good results. Nothing wrong with NOE but have you tried Tom...

    vrh, What rfd said! And while I'm hesitant to recommend a particular lube because there are so many products and concoctions that work well, I use 1 Ballistol : 6 water or Stumpy's Moose Snot* and don't need to wipe the bore for an entire range...

    I am likely being over-cautious with my several 32/20 wheelguns. I am loath to strain my Colt Army Special, Bisley, or pre-war S&W M&P with any load that runs a 115-120 grain bullet over 900 FPS. Ken Waters' "Pet Load" for this caliber & bullet...

    If it's a factory Marlin M1894, stick with the 257420 Lyman. With its factory twist, the longer/heavier the bullets and you get instability and keyholes./beagle

    beagle replied to a thread Over lube a bullet??? in Cast Boolits
    Yes. The resulting problem is lube purging fliers outside a normal group. These can't be predicted but are often discussed by cast bullet "benchies". On a 311466, I'll normally lube two grooves and let it fly./beagle

    I think we often times get hung up on the amount of lube needed by a cast bullet. We know that Keith's square grooves made release more difficult but at the time was probably necessary due to the lubes available. With the improved lubes we have...

    As I remember, there was a recall in the early 90's for the 92 series, barrels didn't always stay in one piece. That sub gun ammo and one of those could be interesting. :)

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.
