    NEI makes several and I had a double cavity made. #185 and #187. One is a spire point and the other is a flat nose. If you can get a good mould from NEI, I recommend them. The flat nose did well in Africa as I sent a batch to a pal in Namibia. ...

    I've polished out several with a wooden dowel in an electric drill. Split dowel and wrap crocus cloth around the dowel. The chuck holds it in. The carbide insert will pick up junk after a while and cause scratches. A good polishing, followed by...

    Looks as if a "frame" could be easily fabricated. Looks to be a two part sliding frame locked in place by a set screw with a case of the correct length furnished for setting it up......if you're interested in restoring it./beagle

    I once tried to melt down some oily WWs at the range to avoid the fumes. Pot sitting on a concrete bench and a gentle wind blowing. Temps in the 40s. I was unable to melt those down until I fabricated a wind shield to protect the pot. The temp...

    You'll probably be able to use a .357 Mag taper crimp die. When I was playing with the .351, I was able to load using .357 Mag TC dies. The taper crimp is the way to go if in fact this works out./beagle

    Got to side with runfiverun, why reinvent the wheel. The .223 will do whatever the Hornet will and you're already set up. However, if you have the dreaded "got to have just one more disease" like most of us, go for the Hornet. It's an entirely...

    I've tried the 429421, the 429667, 429383, an old 429251 and a 429336 as well as some lighter 200 grain bullets. I keep going back to the 429421 in my Ruger .44 Special. Gives me the best accuracy. Also the 429215 and 429244 if we're talking...
