    Is that he AA hull on the left? If so did you trim it or roll it with the old star crimp in place? Very nice Swamp!

    ...........Where the milling machine shines is in making up your mould blocks. I simply use 6061 alloy aluminum bought from MSC in 6' sticks. Two pieces are set in the band saw and parted off in pairs with about 1/8" extra length. Then each pair...

    ..............I've always found that LATHEBORING is the easiest. Others must agree because if you read the adds they'll usually say, "Lathebored". The lathe is the machine on which it's most easily accomplished. I have to add here that the lathe is...

    I would be tempted to try Lanolin, it too gets stiff in the cold, but has a melt temp at about 100 Deg F. You could also try Coconut oil which melts under 100 Deg F. OR Pure Olive oil mixed with a bit of Lanolin.

    How does the bullet fit without crimp? You need a consistent "pullet pull" Could it be mixed brass doing the flyer, at that velocity everything counts

    Randy, This may not interest you in the least, but in your run and gun sport it's worth a minute to read. This gun was a commercial flop because when it was introduced most semi-auto shotgunners were die hard A-5 or Rem 1100 shooters. I was an...

    Some great ideas ther but I'm suspicious of the load. I suspect without the overpowder cup there will be huge gas blow-by. He's also cut off the compression legs which seems to me would be a high pressure load.

    I was very pleased with Carlson's work, turn around time and price. They called to verify what I wanted and delivered as promised. Thumbs up!

    Rd you are wrong about filling the slug base , especially with those soft wads. Try it using hot glue, overfill then trim. Your photo tells the story perfectly regardless of what happens to the petals. I would suggest at least one card under the...

    LB, I loaded a bunch couple of years ago, awesome loads and I don't know how anyone stands the 3 ball for recoil. IIRC the wads were very tapered and used a 28 ga card in bottom, that allowed a tight fit for the first ball, then had to patch the...

    I went all out and paid $8 for a used oven. I wish you all could convince me that Temp is that critical, maybe my eyes will open someday. Not trying to diminish your efforts into perfection,or trying to prod you guys, just saying maybe Temp is not...
