    9.3X62AL replied to a thread Old And Out Of Touch in Cast Boolits
    I am just happy that I can still shoot and own guns in this Worker's Paradise. I do not give a flip about dirty guns or smoke (You gotta be kidding me.....), that is what Hoppe's #9 was designed to address. I guess I am "out of touch" as well....

    The 45 ACP is already a very lead-friendly caliber right from the git-go, and I had zero leading or accuracy problems with my Glock 21s using cast bullets sized at .452" and lubed with Alox/BW. Bullets sized at .454" did well also. The 8-lobed OEM...

    I have had mixed results with it, I have used Mylar wraps instead of paper and the groups will be inconsistent

    My wife made me a cordura roll up case. It fits 8 bbls up to 14" scoped. The top folds down and has a snapped pocket for tools. It rolls in to a round case with ties. I gave up on internet pictures with the photobucket debacle.

    They have toilets in Yellowstone for Asians as many don't sit but put their feet on the seat and squat down. They won't handle the weight and the seat breaks.

    Yet the Ar runs the 308 and should run the 6.5/08 aka 260 Remington and 338/08 aka 338 Federal just as easily and with better ballistics and an easier to find case.

    That made me think back and laugh. I bought a 1984 Chevy 1500 in Kalispell in 1988 with the 6.2 diesel in it. I had parked in front of Super One Groceries and left my pickup running since it was winter, when I came back out there was an oldtimer...

    Most will have the thin waxy lube. A good shot of thinned LLA, Bens or Recluse might help a lot if you move them past minimum velocity.

    At 60% humidity you start to see condensation on the walls. Get your numbers rechecked or get different venting.

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+53&version=KJV I prefer what I grew up with but read the whole chapter. Much of the text of Handels Messiah came from this chapter as does vs 8 "Who shall declare his generation". Who but God to...

    I am still wondering how in the world the 260 Remington failed and the 6.5 creedmore is how with lesser ballistics. Must be marketing as it is tough to beat a cartridge with a military case as a base. The 338 federal by all such math would beat the...

    The single-best source of data I have found for 32 H&R Magnum is in the RCBS Cast Bullet Manual, #1 (1986), pp. 133. The data uses the RCBS #32--98-SWC bullet, which has been the best-performing bullet in my 32 SWL and 32 HRM for years, and shows...

    I would say no difference. For general plinking, not nearing max you should be fine with the same loads.If your groups move, drop 5%-10% and work back up for accuracy.
