    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...

    longbow replied to a thread Advice please in Casting for Shotguns
    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...

    Al, you did the same thing I did. Our son is in Wake Forest and when we visited him I stopped by Doug's place with both of my 1911's. He got them running well.

    Natches sold off a batch of the .45/70 line throwing cases some years back. I bought a couple of hundred. They'd been pulled. WCC head stamp. I had a Number 1 Ruger .45/70 at the time so I processed what I could (many were dented beyond salvage...

    Yes, it's a 12 gauge. It's been a while, but it takes 209 primers, and I believe it has a screw in breach plug. It's definitely a factory ML barrel, the breach plug may be aftermarket, but I don't think it is.

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!
