    Really should take a picture of mine some time, it's a real junk yard special. Got a cast iron bucket of about a gallon and a half size, that fits down into what was a section of 8" steel pipe that was split lengthwise and sections added to increase...

    I was curious about this, so ran a small test last week to see what happened.Took a few 45-200swc and 45-200rf bullets poured from an alloy that should be close to 1.43Sn, 2.96Sb with a small amount of arsenic, and added a bit more Sn. PC was at...

    ole_270 replied to a thread NOE July 4th sale in Cast Boolits
    Ordered the SC311-165-RD and a .311 sizing bushing for my Grandson. His uncle gave him a Marlin 336 Youth in 30-30. He's pretty small yet so they'll be loaded down some till he grows into the heavy loads, but they'll come in handy for rabbits and...

    ole_270 replied to a thread 45-200RF a slowpoke in Cast Boolits
    Thanks for the reply, I'm new to handguns and handgun loading, but have been working with rifle loads for 40 years. The long seated 200RF does leave quite a bit more case capacity than the standard 200 swc. The only really fast powder I have on hand...

    Forgot to add, the swc is seated to 1.25 which is about .12 off the lands in the newly throated barrel. The 200RF is seated to 1.235 which is about .03 off the lands and about .005 short of hanging up in the factory magazine.

    I've been trying some loads through the chronograph (Pro Chrono not Chrony)the last few days. Using my Sig 1911 5" that DougGuy throated for me. One thing that struck me was the difference in the 2 Lee molds, 45-200RF and 45-200 swc(H&G #68 clone)....

    Live and learn I guess, I always just assumed that softer alloys were better for expansion. How would 1.4%Sn, 2.9%Sb work for a flat nose 38 caliber 250 gr. @14-1500? Too much tin? 20 years ago I did all my deer hunting with the 311041 out of a...

    Got bored yesterday so I fired up the lead pot and between yesterday and some this morning poured 1300 452-200 swc(H&G #68) from a Lee double cavity mold. At some point, there WILL be a 5 or 6 cavity mold for this bullet in my rotation!

    I've also got a M77 250-3000 as well as a M99 Savage, Haven't gotten around to trying them with cast. I've got the Lyman 257420gc, a group buy 80 gr. gc and the NOE 260283 88 gr plain base. Need to find a "round-to-it" and get started.

    I sent some samples to BNE the other day, turns out the #4 Babbit bars I had weren't ASTM #4 like I had hoped. 2.6%Sn, 5.3%Sb is a long way from #4 Tin based babbit. I had 4 different alloys I had mixed over the years and finally got confirmation...

    That National lead catalog someone posted the other day shows pipe and fittings available either pure lead or hardened(3% antimony). Other than an xrf test it might be hard to tell the difference.
