    I honestly don't know. It may have been in a Handloader Issue or maybe a Rifle Issue or many even his Pet Loads writings. I was a long time ago I read it. I believe other writers have mentioned it also... It involved starting with the fastest...

    There are methods of attempting to discover the burning rate of a "mystery" powder... I am pretty sure that one of them is NOT to assume it is, in this case 4320, and start 10% below suggesting charges from a reloading manual. If the powder you...

    Twenty-five to 30 years ago, I acquired a V-series, 4”, S&W 38 Special from a great-aunt. It was her issued handgun when she worked in the mail office at the railroad station—at least that is what I have been told and there are pictures of her at...

    daved63, Just curious about the WC-872 you are using. I have used bunches of it also, and I get corrosion (may not be the correct word to use) on drum after I have thrown 75-100 charges. The drum actually gets difficult to turn as there is...

    BCB replied to a thread Sticky Powder in Reloading Equipment
    Yep, as Walks said concerning the dryer sheets... I have NEVER had them work at all... I just accept the minor static problem and lose a few grains of the flake powder or the other powders that tend to stick when I use it. We've probably all...

    BCB replied to a thread Scratching My Head... in Cast Boolits
    Took the Encore to my range today… Used QL to tell me the number of clicks with reference to my groups and it adjusted to have a zero at 150 yards… I did the number of clicks—up/down…left/right—and let the first round fly. Bango, right in the...

    BCB replied to a thread Scratching My Head... in Cast Boolits
    This appears to have been the problem--at least for now!!! I shot 3 different groups using 3 different recipes. All clustered in a circle that could be covered with a silver-dollar-sized object. The groups ranged in size from .7"+ to 1.2" at...

    I agree 100%... The adjustment increments are simply too large to “fine tune” points of impact with 0.36” per click… I have sighted rifles in for other people (yes, this does happen!) when they had a ‘scope on it with ˝ inch movement per...

    I have one of those Scot booklets you used to get from gun stores years ago. The date on the one I have is 1990… The slowest powder it lists is 4350. It seems that the 4831 was available after 1990? Or, Scot didn’t care to list it with the...
