    I'v never tried the wire or cable and large balls but did try small diameter piano wire and SSG split shot many years ago. It didn't work well for me. Also, as a side note, if using steel wire, spring tempered or not like piano wire, I would make...

    I enjoy my SP-101 x 4.2' in 327 Federal very much. I load full-tilt eardrum-splitters and "32 S&W Long +P" (RCBS 32-98-SWC @ 950 FPS) mostly, both are VERY accurate loads. I have a Wolff kit sitting on the work table, and I will get around to...

    Not sure if there is a hole saw that is correct inside diameter but they tend to have a nasty seam in them. Kinda looked at that briefly. I'd be more inclined to turn my own then heat treat them. For 1/4" to maybe 3/8" felt wads I doubt teeth...

    What ever happened to the old El Tigre carbines imported back in the 60s from down south? Saw one at a gun show some years back and it must have been made from gold. A lot were converted to .44 Magnum despite the fact that they were too weak for...

    I have the convertible Super Single Six in blued steel - the first gun I bought for myself as an adult. Still shoot it at times, and used it to teach the kids and now the grandkids.

    I don't like to shoot deer past 200 yards with a cartridge rifle. I sure wouldn't do it with a muzzleloader.

    It would probably be safe, but I would just get a better quality smoothbore.

    If you get it do a cast of the chamber. Mine is 10.5x47R on the rifle side, 16ga,2.5" on the other. Damascus shotgun, fluid steel rifle. Sent the cast to Dave Davidson at CH4D and he told me that mine is different than his other 24 10.5x47R...

    Thanks for the advice everyone! I was talking to Veral Smith and he said that using lard is also very good to flux with, but to make sure it is unsalted. Has anyone got experience with using lard? Is it better than wax?

    I slugged it and did a throat slug too, came out to .2885", so as junkbug mentioned, seems to be a run of the mill loose 7mm. Thanks for the information.

    Those do look like the gas seals BPI lists. Oddly I had failed to find them when I went looking a while ago but found them last time! uncle dino uses those on his swaged slugs. I think what I'd do is modify a core pin so the right diameter...

    You should try a nitro card wad under the slug to stop wads from pushing into the cavity. I like 16 ga. in my Winchester shotcups. 20 ga. may be better for wads with thicker petals. Either should work okay. Alternately hot melt glue or some other...

    Mike: If felt donut wads are cheap enough and readily available that is likely the simplest answer. I think pretty much anything that keeps the RB centered will work. What got me going on paper mache and corn meal mush and such was the thought...

    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...

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!
