    When the parent case is the same size as the chamber I would agree. 9x47R fireforms to 10.5x47R without a problem. When the parent case is longer than the chamber I would question it. My plan in making 9.3x57 out of 30/06 is to expand the neck,...

    I only “need” one clip per each set of pins and have a lifetime supply from the spares MP sends with all his moulds. Send me a PM and I’ll mail you a few if the ones listed earlier don’t work out. Tony

    A belated "thank you," tazman re Norma target ammo. I had a box of it several years ago and it was excellent. dtknowles, I agree Wolf Match and Match Extra is VG+ ammo. I won several of my club's .22 BR matches with it (hunter class, reworked...

    Haven't shot at all in the past year. Both because of the increased cost at the range and because I'm having cataracts removed next month. I expect in December I'll be shooting again.

    I just expanded some 30-06 cases up to 9.3 to cut down to 57mm. Only lost four of 50 and they were of unknown previous use. Did not anneal, but maybe should have, did not use my 8mm as an intermediate step and absolutely should have. Use any...

    I find it vastly comforting to meditate on the fact that God's vengeance is truly Righteous, Holy, and eternal. Mine is vastly limited, selfish, and temporary. I have no problem with this concept.

    Close. It was loaned to a cousin who recently gave it to my son who is 50. It's still working but I'll bet the spring is weak. The leather thong through the saddle ring rotted away before I let it go. Good memories./beagle

    Shot the ones I cast the other day. They seemed to shoot well enough. It was just some informal plinking from an improvised rest, at a steel target 50 yards away, but it showed promise. The LLA didn't leave any hard fouling at all. Was loading it on...

    I'm often asked why I have so many rifles in the same chambering. The answer is simple, I don't like to mix loads through the same rifle, there are pristine cast boolit shooters, and then there are the "other" types. Most of my CB shooters started...

    Not an air rifle but a BB gun story. I was born in 1942 and by the end of WW2 I was ready for a BB gun. Santy Claws brought me a Daisey Red Ryder and I quickly went through the copper plated BBs that came with it. This was right after the war was...

    Ran across a .424 round ball mould in my stuff this week. I've used it for making round balls for "double ball" loads in the .44 Mag by bumping the diameter up. My question is what was it originally intended to be used in./beagle

    Bet you're bippy a silver dime will dissolve. I was messing with a mercury dime one time. Pouring lead on it to get a reverse casting. One cast stuck so I dropped the dime in the pot. Only took a few seconds too./beagle

    I've killed plenty of deer mostly with the .45 and the .50, but also the .54 and .62. Expansion and penetration, assuming soft lead, depends on velocity (hence distance from the deer) and where it is hit. I've killed deer at 100 yards (+ and -)...

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!
