    Where did you see them? I was under the impression that the Thug Slug was the improved version. I have not tried Thug Slugs but have been meaning to order some. I do like the AQ wad though ~ no cushion leg to distort... like Brenneke Classic. ...

    9.3X62AL replied to a thread 327 Federal in Cast Boolits
    "Ditto" to TC FAN's text. I use the RCBS #32-98-SWC and enough WW-231 to prompt 950-1000 FPS in most of my shooting in 327 Federal. I have tried the full-tilt loadings with jacketed bullets and AA-9 or Alliant 2400 powders, and the muzzle reports...

    Randy... I have the same keychain! 16 ga. I think but the slug is made out of zinc (I think). Pretty sure it isn't lead. My belief is that slugs should be sized to about 0.735" so they fit pretty much any normal factory gun but of course they...

    So I'm sold. Now I just need to find one. I see them on the web, but no telling how old of production those are. I think I want a new production gun. I'm a dinosaur. This will be my first 9mm, and my first plastic pistol of any sort.

    ................You may go here on Cast Boolits: http://castpics.net/dpl/index.php/the-archives/group-buy-mold-archive There is no way that ALL of the "Group Buy", or "Custom" designs are listed there. I think only 2 are listed for the 8mm, and...

    My possibles bag is made from blanket material. All my shooting bags are leather. The Metis and Ute did wool shooting bags, and there are examples from a few other tribes. Whites generally used a bark tanned leather.

    Randy the reason I like the Brenneke Classic is because of the wad stack ~ hard felt like material with plastic washers on either side. Nothing there to distort. I've seen the Gualandi wads crush somewhat off center which I think is due to the long...

    What Hickory said! Who knows what powder the factory uses and if and when they change powders. Seems like a lot of work to open hulls to dump powder unless you plan to just cut them off to get the powder. I'd say not worth it even if you knew...

    It will take a while to recover your grip strength as you will want to protect the stump for a while as its healing. Don't rush too fast to do pistol shooting with your right hand. But consider this as a perfect opportunity to reinforce your...

    Gray Fox: I have been leaning toward the Stoeger 12 ga. Supreme Coachgun if I go new. If I can find a decent used Stoeger coachgun or full length (I can cut barrels down to 20") I'd likely buy it and try it. They aren't too pricey. I like side...

    I have some of those Russian slugs on hand now. KrakenFan69 sent me 50 which was very nice of him. I tested some last spring but have not been to the range for some time due to very dry (and on fire) forest surrounding us. So far accuracy has not...

    Thanks to Outpost75 for showing the photos of the 38 "Super Police" loadings above. These are my first views of the cartridge. I now also see where Lyman #358-430 (195 grain RN) got its inspiration. #358-430 was one of my first mould purchases...

    I've had the same experience. When a business advertises as Christian owned and operated, I've learned to not do business there, because sure as shooting, they will try to screw the customer.

    longbow replied to a thread Load Data in Casting for Shotguns
    I tried using card wads for slug loads a couple of years ago. Not real successful! I had a bunch of shotcups I'd cut gas seal off and bags of nitro card wads so thought I'd try some wad slugs using the shotcups on a card wad column. I put two 12...

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!
