    I guess that I should add that it's available in both .258 and .260 diameters but, not mixed in the same mold blocks. Frank

    Al, @ NOE has updated the mold to the "Active Buy" list on his forum. It looks like he'd really like to run it. You can have it in either .258 or .260 diameter but, not both sizes in the same blocks. ...

    To get it made, you have to sign up at the NOE forum. Then post that you would like one. When there are a total of 10 people that do that, it then goes to the "Active Group Buy" thread. Al orders the Cherry and more people can sign up while it's...

    A few people on the NOE forum are looking for people interested in a 120 gr bullet for 25 caliber. It can be either PB or GC. They need about 5 more to get it done. Here is what it looks like. This one isn't of my design but, a copy of a very...

    Your primers look fine and if you don't have any hard bolt lift problems, I wouldn't worry about it. Your rifle is strong enough to withstand any pressure that the case will hold. Different cases will withstand different pressures as much as 2...

    frnkeore replied to a thread score !!! in Military Rifles
    I second that. I have a 50 BMG AP core that I've used for a center punch since 1965 or so. I'm a machinist (retired now) so, I've used it a lot. Frank

    I have a XP100 that I bought new as a 221, I never fired it with the 221 barrel, I ordered a Douglas threaded and chambered 7mm TCU and got excellent results with the RCBS 145 gr mold and nearly full cases of both 4895 and AA2520. Frank

    What are you calling "pressure signs"? If the primer pocket is loose, that is defiantly a sign to back off. Frank

    As far as useable pressure goes, the case life is really the determaning factor. Different cases allow different pressures to be generated, based on how hard the brass is and how thick the case head is. What I've used for a max pressure is if I...

    Sorry about the "bore ring" as you've figured out it's ment to be "bore riding" but, you can't edit the heading :( A few people on the NOE forum are looking for people interested in a 120 gr bullet for 25 caliber. They need about 6 more to get...

    I'm a big fan of how strong the Arisaka Type 38 & 99 rifle is. My ONLY issue with them is how butt ugly they are. I especially dislike the looks of the safety and the trigger guard strap that runs along the pistol grip. The latter feature makes them...

    Hmmmm, this sounds to me like they are using Varget for the 4166 and H4350 for 4451, I'm not sure what the Aussie powder would be for the 7977. Remember Hodgdon replacing 4227 with H4227 and still calling it IMR4227? I see that the newest...

    I'm a 4759 advocate but, 4759 is now gone "long live it's replacement". It's was droped before by Dupont and then brought back by IMR. I think it was gone for about 15 years before the demand brought it back. Maybe Hodgdon will "see the light" and...

    Something is wrong with either your twist rate or your groove size. Both the 319295 and the 321297 WILL stabilize with a 16 twist and a bullet that fits the groove diameter. The 321297 is your best best for fit, the design as cast dia is .323 in #2...
