    I'd do a Chamber cast to see what you have in each rifle. Before I'd go out and buy another bullet mold. They do ship to the states and your $ is so much more than ours as well as our postage is cheaper. Just cost me 1/2 the value of the rcbs...

    Yep thanks fellas. I chopped off the breach end of another 310 and use that for forming and sizing my cases now. I was using a tapered hole in a something or other that tapered the 32-20 shoulder down to fit the 310's chamber to fire form cases...

    Thnx for that Black beard. I got hold of some hawkesbury 310 cadet commercial cast bullets of a bloke but they turned out to be the 316 diameter size and not the healed variety. He got them for scrap lead price and I swapped him for some. Sized...

    Yes Iv'e been thinking of alox The ones I painted didn't give me grief , but the 50/50 bw/vas did. Apart from the gut turning smell of the stuff; alox has worked for me in the past before. I think it must not go anywhere and form a gooey...

    I tend to patch over the orgive enough that the wrapped paper is of bore diameter or a bees willy smaller. I was getting some leading and I figure it was the patch was being pushed back bunching up sometimes being caught in the leading rifling....

    Your better off to use say a 1/2 grain of bullseye or something to just get the bullet to drop out the end of the barrel. I think the stop starting from hammering one through will obscure your results a little by stop starting and the fact that the...

    Thnx black beard. Think I found my biggest problem. I decided to just size down the rest of those black coated bullets and paper patch them to see if they will fly. Talk about hard coating even with lube these tiny bullets were tough. The paint...

    Today seemed like a dismal disaster. The "proper cast bullets" all leaded despite wads and lube wads and everything else I tried. After some lead mining pp'd bullets were tipping badly except for 3 shots I fired at the start of the day. Was...

    Softer steel of many 22lr barrels may be the issue as well My hornet with 1:16" will shoot those long pointy 40 grn plastic tipped stuff beautifully. The old rn 40_45 gn 223 projectiles shoot good too. Most people round 'ere would jest smoke...

    Probably need to make a dipper for 10.5 gns then. But you will need a scale. Nothing wrong with a balance beam scale and trickling up your weight for dead nuts accurate. It also depends on how close to the max you are when dipping.....or...

    Here is a pic of the bullets. My old non vented 308241 150gn pb mould maybe different then some. Cast a bit over 311 with ww ac. It's 0.890" long and the barrel twist programs all say it won't stabalise. With the long seating the nose is engraved...

    I loaded up some more rounds. This time with a wad and lube ahead of the bullet. I also slapped some lube on the heel shank to help stick the bullet into the unsized cases. See if that helps the leading issue. I will have I think trim one case...

    The bullets I got off noel are the tumble lubed bullet. It doesn't seem to be in the list but is described somewhere or other. It has a pointer nose and maybe 0.323" before the paint job and maybe .310 on the heel. Better find the slug I made...
