    During Fathers Day lunch, I made plans to take two of my Grand Daughters to shoot the rifles I bought them shortly after their birth. After gathering all the equipment and the girls, we drove to the only local range. Excitement ruled the day...

    It's the same info either copied or rewritten, hidden among the advertisements. If the advertisers are paying, and we are charged an exorbitant price for paper and ink, why bother? The printed media was at one time, the only way to find info. Its...

    that may very well work, but I set COAL by trial and error, making dummy rounds, starting about as long as possible, then attempt to chamber the dummy, if it's no-go, which is usually the case, I keep trying shorter lengths, until I find the length...

    " required" ...nope, but the amount of accuracy lost without one, makes it worth the cost and effort, IMHO. Here is a sticky on it. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?65035-Can-I-shoot-a-gas-check-design-with-out-the-gas-check

    I haven't seen anything anywhere that they changed 44 Mag. If Remlin were to change the slow twist on their 44 Mag guns, I suspect several will be sold to castboolit shooters and we'd have a dozen threads about them.

    You should email or call Al at NOE to ask the status. There is no average time for an item to be back in stock. If you contact him, so he knows you want to buy one, he "may" squeeze in a batch to replenish stock if he knows one is to be sold right...

    What do you have in mind, Hunting or accuracy? A heavy 265gr is sure good for hog hunting, BUT... since those marlins have that slow twist rate (1:38), a lighter boolit will tend to fly more stable. Many have reported that boolits over 240gr when...

    I would answer "maybe". There are too many variables to give a solid answer. pistol or rifle? BP or smokless? Lube recipe? What oil is used in the lube? percentage of oil content in lube? and lube grooves size

    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    I hope you got my point about the experiment with "your" boolits. It doesn't matter what LaserCast or Rimrock bullets will do in your rifle, because they are NOT your boolits. But it did tell you that your rifle will function with a .454 sized...

    I don't have an answer to your questions, but I'm gonna guess that those details aren't as crucial when loading for 45-70 at "less than High Velocity". Now, if you are looking for great accuracy at long distances with Max loads, then I suspect you...

    My thoughts are... since you have a .452 size die and "if" you have a .454 size die, it is time for you to do some accuracy testing of the two different sizes of your own cast boolits, from the same mold, cast from your own alloy, to see what your...
