    ID SS makes a good point about base diameter differences. My full-snort loadings get put up in full-diameter brass; my cast bullet loads go in reformed 35 Whelen brass. I haven't had any base faults crop up in my lot of Rem 35 Whelen-based 9.3 x...

    i came to the conclusion years ago that EVERY mold is a learning experience and has something to teach me. The question is - am I willling to learn?

    Most people don't think this way, but even 'modern' is old school. How old is the 9mm after all?

    Muzzle loading, but using smokeless and shotgun primers is that it? Does that get you hunting in primitive firearm season? We don't have firearm specific hunting seasons (apart from waterfowl) as such in Australia, but in my State certain...

    OK, I have the revolver now. The 357 cylinder is etched/engraved very lightly with the 3rd serial number. Can't see three numbers. First two digits of the serial are 30 then hyphen. I can't find a similar number on the 9mm cylinder but don't...

    Now that I have not seen before! I was planning on making a multi cavity push out mould from a piece of rectangular bar stock but more conventional like with 4 cavities in line. I call them push out moulds because I typically use a nose...

    These three are quite special for me for the people they remind me of. The boner with 4 3/4 in 15N20 blade has scales from a walnut tree I felled on my late fathers yard in the early 80's. The light hunter with 3 5/8 N690 blade has buffalo horn...

    No, all 24 were slightly different, enough that he had to make different size dies for each. These guns were all made before standardization - every gunsmith had the cartridges (based on the Mauser A - 11mm Mauser cartridge) but probably made his...

    I have a few pounds of the square flake Turk powder. I'm thinking of using around 42 gr., for a velocity of around 2450 fps in my .375 H&H. That load leaves quite a bit of space in the case. I'm thinking WC 860 or WC 872 as filler. Anyone see any...

    "Evaporust" found at many auto parts stores will remove rust from the steel molds and parts without removing any metal, works real well, it will remove the bluing but that doesn't matter. The aluminum will need to be cleaned with a tooth brush...

    I made good use of a S&W Model 10 x 2" for the last years of my shop's adherence to the 38 Special/revolver system. It was a good back-up arm to the issued S&W Model 64 x 4"--it could be fed from the same speed-loaders, and I shot the snubgun very...

    Tex-- I haven't employed the 38 S&Ws as defensive tools, they are sport guns for me. That said--I darn sure will not stand downrange and try fielding those 200 grain slugs running sedately at 600-625 FPS with a baseball glove, either. In 52...

    A non-shooting friend has asked to give a value on a 3-screw 357 Magnum 6.5 inch barrel with an extra 9mm cylinder. Revolver looks new and has definitely not been shot much. I think it also has the original box. I'll go to the web auction sites...

    I had one very much like that except the scale pan was brass. The underside of the scale said Pelouze was the manufacturer. They're still in business and still make scales, though not for reloading.

    Lyman M5 and the RCBS 10-10 are NOT the same scale. Very similar, but the 10-10 is based on a 10grain beam and the M5 is based on a 5grain beam. The 10-10 has the barrel to adjust tenths while the M5 has the slide on the bar. I have both side by...

    Sometimes they are the only place to get dies for uncommon calibers. What Dave has on the shelf is amazing - but send him a chamber cast and he will make anything. I have an old (1885-1892) Cape gun, the rifle side is 10.5x47mmR. I sent him a...

    It is possible to get mousetrapped, true. Federal Court is expensive, too. That is why I don't sell boolits - but I'll give them away or trade for lead. If you want boolits that I make I'll teach you to cast - done that twice so far. Some of you...

    Lost seal, water got in, you have haze on your lenses. Think about what a similar quality scope would cost. $250 is inexpensive in comparison.

Signature


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!
