    Why would a five groove be any different? They drill the hole, ream it and hone it and that's your bore. So it would have the same bore as 4/6/etc groove barrels. Micro Groove is slightly different. All you need is a V block to use with you mic...

    9.3X62AL replied to a thread 32-20 bullits in Cast Boolits
    I use pin gauges to measure revolver throat diameters. Most machine shops have such tools, and some may be willing to gauge your revolver's throats at nominal cost. I don't pay much attention to bore and groove diameters any more, and concentrate...

    None of my currently-owned 38 Specials are built for use of +P ammunition, so I got out of loading the stuff when my last capable example went down the road 10+ years ago. The small amount of +P 38 ammo I had on hand got run through one of the 357s...

    I have had very similar results from my chronography of the W-W, R-P, and F-C versions of this load. I believe this load to be the single-best 38 Special loading carried in harm's way, and it would be my choice in this venue. Have a look at the...

    I have to agree with you Lloyd. Razor Dobbs killed two cape buffaloes with a 5 inch barreled Sig 1911 in 10mm. He had through and through penetration on both of them and was using, I believe, Sledgehammer hard cast. I watched it on video and can...

    Except for antiques and C&R to a licensee. Sounds like all of these may qualify for one or the other. If you have a functioning 32 S&W PM me - only 50+ years old for C&R.

    Yikes! I'm afraid I'd just stay curious... or get someone to bore the mould out to bore diameter. I am too cheap for that! Longbow

    Yeah... BP! I used to load Lyman 457124's (385 gr.) for my 1895 over as much FFFg as I could get in the case. Lots of fun! Lots of boom! Lots of flash! Lots of smoke! Lots of nice BP aroma! Not a lot of recoil. But do clean up brass and gun after. ...

    98% of my rifle castings get the No. 1 Mk III eyeball exam throughout the process, and I am a kinda unforgiving of flaws I see on a bullet. I did scale some #225438 bullets for a 22 Hornet test series I ran in 2014, and shot some fairly impressive...

    If by "Lyman 200 grain SWC" you mean #452460, then YES I have run it through a Glock 21 successfully. The slide cycle had a bit of a hiccup with it and with an H&G #68 clone (also a 200 grain SWC). These both were seated with .020" of the bullets'...

    I usually loaded mine down to .45-70 levels. With Rugers, you may want to check if it was a model where the bolt locks when on safety, or not. I had a .338 WM that didn't, and found when in rough brushy terrain, the bolt could be pulled open...

    With the flange it's probably the Saeco - Herter's made models that used the Saeco dies and ones that used the Lyman dies.

    And how or why should I turn everything over to someone I don't know? The American Church has made the mistake of focusing on the theology of man rather than the theology of God - consequently we don't know God. Start studying the theologt of God...

    Blue works 99% of the time, 440 grain boolits at 1,300+ from a 4-3/4" barrel made this one particularly bad at loosening screws, so I went with Red Loctite.

    If kept to book pressures, the original Contender in 44 Mag will be fine. If run extra hard, they can and will stretch the frame, I know because I did it. T/C graciously replaced my frame with a G2, something that is not likely to happen under...

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.
John Taylor - "African Rifles and Cartridges"

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
