    9.3X62AL replied to a thread Biscuits and gravy in Our Town
    YES and YES! Leftover biscuits and gravy or S.O.S. is an un-heard-of phenomenon in my family. It would constitute an affront of great proportions. We have been known to put these wonderful concoctions over steamed brown or white rice as well...

    ^^^ THIS! ^^^ 3 revolvers and 1 rifle in 32/20, and .313" bullets work well in the .313"-.314" throats found in them. No leading with 92/6/2 alloy and 50/50 BW/Alox lube. Shoot 'em up.

    I am doing slow rust. Steaming is just a substitute for boiling out, with less equipment.

    I'm puzzled you have deer go 100 yards with lung shots. I've killed a lot of deer and elk with cast, and have never had one go even half that distance. As for cast vs. jacketed, I'm #5 on the food chain here, and trust cast more than jacketed.

    I wasn’t commenting on your post and am not sure why you would think I was. There have been 6 posts in the thread that said the crimp was the problem after the OP said that a resized only case won’t chamber, in post 10.

    It’s not the crimp! A sized case with nothing else done to it doesn’t chamber, according to the OP. That only leaves the case not being sized enough to chamber as the problem. Screw the die down farther until the problem goes away. If the die...

    I usually use a narrow pointed single point tool bit or make a D-bit to correct shape using an old grade 8 bolt or tool steel. If you can find a "correct' shaped carbide burr it should work fine as long as it doesn't chatter. I have made boolit...

    I'm currently bluing a barrel. I just set it outside, and am having excellent results. In dry weather, it just takes an extra day to get the oxidation I want. My strongest caution is to not let the metal get actually rusty, if you want a good high...

    I would stick with the buckshot. It shoots as well as anything you will cast. Not to mention it is frustrating to cast for an hour, and have a distressingly small pile of balls for the effort!

    I did a bit of searching but didn't find a lot. Not sure if the .300 Sherwood is considered a rookbrifle or not. Most of the rook rifle cartridges seem to be smaller and lower powered than the .300 Sherwood. Its parent was the .300 Rook. I found...

    .......... I'm happy to say that both my Rossi's (357 RB Short rifle & 45 Colt 24" oct color cased rifle) only had a mild form of "Owner responsible for final fit/finish" issues. On the 45 Colt it was the hammer screw, which also retains the lower...

    I agree with this. I can't recall ever seeing a #9 in all my years of shooting muzzle loaders. #10 may even be hard to find in some areas, most common is #11. Dixie Gun Works is the only place I can think of you MIGHT find #9's.

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!
