    I have one I used years ago for practice rounds and learning rounds for my son in a 270. Hornady gas checks fit fine. We shot hundreds of them with both medium and light loads. I still have the mold but haven't used it since I got other guns more...

    ole_270 replied to a thread Best Boolit for 38-55 in Cast Boolits
    Don't know about best boolit, but my JES rebore really likes the Lee 38-250 and Accurate 38-250B. Sized .377 with either PC or Winds Wonder Wax(similar to Emmerts lube), it does all I can ask of it. I ordered the Accurate mold plain based since I...

    ole_270 replied to a thread ? About J.E.S. in Leverguns
    I've read he uses a SAAMI chamber reamer with the smaller .376 bore. Mine measured about 2.12 on a pound cast. I use the Starline 2.082 cases and get great accuracy.

    In the slow twist M99s I'll add a +1 to the Speer Hot Cores. I've taken several deer with the 87 and a couple with the 100. No surprises, no doubts. I still haven't tried cast in this rifle even though I have 3 molds I use in the 25-20. Molds range...

    My old Marlin 25-20 has a fast twist liner in it at about 9.5-10 twist, wasn't my choice. I use a Noe version of the 257283, plain based mold with 9.3gr. 4198, PC'd for a practice and small game load. Very accurate and effective at about 1270-1300...

    The last company I worked for started out as a small family owned machine shop specializing in aircraft parts. It was bought out in 2007 by a holding company, and things started down hill. 3 times in the following 10 years it sold to another...

    Bullets are changing, sometimes not for the better. I use quite a few Sierras for varmints, the 165 Gameking at times in the 308, and have some 85 Gameking Hp to try in the 243. My longtime favorite Hornady flat base Interlocks have been dropped in...
