    I do not (yet) load for 357 SIG, but I like how it duplicates the 125 grain 357 Magnum ballistics so closely. As felon repellent, the 357 Magnum flat-out WORKS. I have fired the cartridge in Glock and SIG-Sauer full-size pistols; subjective recoil...

    The vise was the next step. It was 100+degrees in the evening here and my Wife and I were sitting under the aircon and the best I has was Vice Grips, haha. I'll try it downstairs in the morning. Thanks.

    Next minit! It's 2019. I obviously got busy when I got back from China and this post slipped through the net. I have just acquired another push feed Model 70 Win Westerner in 243Win. This one is a rough ex farm rifle that I picked up real cheap....

    When I do blueberry pancakes the blueberries stick to the smooth pan worse than the pebbled pan. Just did that, neither stuck badly.

    It finally arrived, I purchased it a couple of months ago from interstate and it was dirt cheap! The guy handling the shipping left the gunshop. then Christmas arrived, etc, etc, etc. It is a Winchester Model 70 Westerner and was an old farm...

    beagle replied to a thread .433 cast size vs .428 in Cast Boolits
    I've shot .433s in my SBH but as has been pointed out they were tight to chamber. No signs of pressure. I dropped back to .432 and that's done well for me./beagle

    If you are cutting the entire crimp off including rolled edge you might try using a piece of 3/4" pipe cut and faced to the correct length. That is what I use for hull length cutting and gauges. I use a utility knife to cut across the face. Works...

    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Hungarian M95 in Military Rifles
    I had the same problem with the Lee seat die and the Frnakenstein boolit. I contacted Lee, sent the die and a couple of Frankenstein boolits in, they opened up the die so the boolit fit in it and have been using it that way ever since. It crimps...

    Don't worry about the gas check being inside the case. Seat the bullets ot just clear the lands.

    Yeah, I'm wondering how much pressure it took to SEAT the second primer!

    Invest in the NOE expanders since you have the Lee die. Not terribly expensive and well worth it.

    This is on a 'glass' top stove and the two big burners. Yes, not only is the Loge thicker, it is one of the year dated pans - the fire year so it is very different in the absorption of heat. Didn't think of that. The Griswald is thin as usual.

    I think, after 43 years married to the same woman, I have a little credibility. She actually asks my opinion sometimes before she has formed her own!

    I can't say I ever slugged any of my .38 S&W's, I just always sized to cylinder throat dimensions. I have shot .006" over bore in other guns with no ill effects, I personally don't get too wound up over it, especially with the soft alloys I usually...

    You might try using a paper wrap or two on the undersize slugs. That should tighten them up to suit the bore. Round balls are nice though I have to say. My goal has been decent hunting level accuracy to 100 yards with slugs from smoothbore but...

    I bored a piece of pipe nipple to wad size (yes, crude I know but it already had a large hole in it so less machining than solid bar) and made a close fitting insert with a hole through it to fit a 3" finishing nail (about 1/8" diameter IIRC) that...

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!
