    longbow replied to a thread New to this in Casting for Shotguns
    My opinion... 0.678" RB's are about the easiest to load for and are a standard mould size from Lyman and RCBS. They fit several standard shotcups very well and with a 16 or 20 ga. nitro card wad or two underneath generally shoot very well. ...

    longbow replied to a thread 45- 70 +p? in Factory Rifles
    Forgot to add that powder choice has a lot to do with the recoil. I made the mistake of doing a large amount of research before I had my Siamese Mauser conversion built and decided that: - heavy for caliber boolits were the way to go so Lyman...

    What Larry said! I have no hunting experience with my .45-70's but considering that, as has been repeatedly mentioned, the .45-70 with BP loads is responsible for the demise of many bison and other large critters and medium size critters I have...

    It may come to that, I'm hoping that someone who has a .453 needs a .452 and we can both be happy, but if not, I'll resort to lapping it out...

    The .32 long colt started life with the heeled bullet, and then was later loaded with the hollow based bullet of smaller diameter, usually around .301-.303. I forget when the transition was, but they were both called the .32 long colt. (either...

    I've got a couple of spare star dies, and could use a couple of others. Needed: .453, .367 For trade: .452 .358 (I might have some others, I'll check this evening) Ideally, I'd like to trade 1-1 and each cover outgoing shipping. I'm open to...

    If you tell them you are reporting a missing gun to BATF, they tend to find them very quickly.

    I own a PA10 and I had to go back and recheck my sizing die setup on my reloads as I was having problems almost the same as you. The bullets would feed in my 308 Bolt rifles but not in the AR. I went back and determined that the PA10's barrel...

    So my 1970's vintage gun becomes more attractive. It has hardly been shot since I sold it to my friend. We'll see how the toy money holds out. Longbow

    I can't answer for that boolit but I tried the 316299 with short patch and it did not work for me. I large turned the driving bands to size for patching so it was still a nose bore rider but accuracy was not good. Longbow

    87gr vmax is a great little bullet, out of a 6 Dasher I know more than a few pdogs died at over 1000 yards. For long range shooting chrono data is important, extreme spread and standard deviation matter more than your group size at 100. 500 isn't...

    My 1895 was a 1970's vintage and I wish I still had it. It was a victim of my need for money to go to college and was not replaced. I do have a chance of buying it back now. It would be interesting to know if this crack issue is for recent...

    Feeler threads are not allowed on the forum. If you are trying to sell it and don't know the price then an auction style sale in the S&S would bring the best price possible. Take care, Robert

    Don't misunderstand, I am not arguing about the price issue as I wouldn't pay it either... unless I didn't handload and wanted that extra insurance of improved terminal ballistics and hard cast boolit for penetration should a large bear decide to...

    Read "The Bullet's Flight" by Dr. Mann if you still think it will make any difference. He did the experiments back at the turn of the last century - and they have been repeated since by those who never read him!

    Get rid of the BB, and go to moose milk. If concerned about leaving it loaded for a long period, soak the patches in moose milk, then let dry. BB causes terrible fouling in most conditions, and is totally unworkable in cold weather shooting.

    Great find Fred, glad you've gotten to finally scratch an itch that's been after you so long. I was in the same boat for about 30 years. I bought one of the Model of 1989's when they hit the market, and fell in love with a 5" model. At one point,...

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!
