    The air / oil approach sounds good. Plin old soaking it isn't doing much.

    I don't know about Lee saying they should be 0.681" but mine cast at 0.685" +/- a thou or so but pretty round and pretty consistent for both the 1 oz. and 7/8 oz. moulds. Seems to me the 7/8 oz. may cast a couple thou smaller. Both mine fit into...

    Hah! you were typing at the same time I was! The sizers are not hard to make. I just use round bar and bore it to near size then lap to get good finish and final size. These are simple hammer sizers... just a bored bar and a punch then drop the...

    I'm with you on that confusion. If the hull construction is the same I can't see how the powder knows the hull is shorter or longer. In fact same applies to wad column. How does the powder know whether you have a long or short wad column for a given...

    Even easier... Make or buy a punch to make disks that just fit snuggly into the dipper (any larger than you need dipper) then punch cardboard disks to displace the volume you need to get to where you want. A woodscrew can be used to thread into...

    Yes! I have to load up several types of slugs and some 2 ball loads for testing. Hmmmmm... I was sure KrackenFan69 said the slugs he sent me were Paradox slugs but they have a round flat nose. Doesn't matter as the only real difference is the...

    It is a Gew 98. The bore looks very good, with sharp rifling right to the end. It is a long barreled rifle with the "roller coaster" rear sight. I will do a full slug, but i'm betting I get a similar #, and .292" is a long ways off the .284" of a...

    Muddydogs, Lyman's manual for the #450 says the "O" rings for the piston are a hardware store item, just be sure you take it with you when shopping for them. (Don't ask!) Also, be careful of the die retaining nut and the associated lube sizer body...

    Hello all, I have an old Mauser that a friend owns, and I am trying to determine what caliber it is. The receiver ring is stamped "Amberg 1918". The serial # is 1327, and the barrel matches the receiver. Now according to all I read online, this...

    Its always worth testing, but I agree with the others you likely won't see much if any difference. I spent a few months dialing in my 6" K-38, and tried H&G, Lyman, Ideal, RCBS, and ended up using a LEE. The LEE made 6 versus 2, and shot every bit...

    Is that the Russian Paradox or Tusker? I thought the Paradox had a round nose but then neither is quite like the original... not that is matters, they are all nice slugs the Russian moulds cast. That is a whopper when you use the Gulandi pin! How...

    Redding and RCBS grace most of the boxes on my desk. I like Hornady dies with a caveat, they can be a pain with cast. The seating sleeve is perfect for jacketed but often requires honing our for fatter boolits. If you hone it out, you’ve defeated...

    It is not cocked on the above photos, but the rifle cocks properly and fires ok. Thanks. I'll do the kero / ATF soak. I have already soaked it a few times in penetrataiing oil, but obviously it needs a day or two. I have another new rifle, I...

    Thanks BigMrTong. They don't look as nice as your 3D printed tail wads though. But for us guys without 3D printers these are pretty easy to make. I am still having some trouble getting the felt to punch cleanly as is seems to "squirm" a bit...

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.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
