    I have owned 2 Lyman 311041 molds and they were both undersized, inaccurate and leaded badly. My 4 cavity N.O.E. mold fits my Marlin 336 throat and barrel like a glove, shoots like a house-a-fire and doesn't lead the barrel.

    Tom Myers replied to a thread pound cast question in Cast Boolits
    Wood blocks with holes drilled will need to be split as the casting grips he sides of the mold. This is what worked for me and, using pure lead, the wrinkles seem to iron out when impacted. Below are links to the help files pages...

    If the sight radius on that rifle is 20" and if that rear sight will allow you to move the sight up about 1.203" from a 100 yard zero (that's only about a 3.72 degree departure angle) and you should be able to stuff enough black powder in a 45 Colt...

    Sorry, I forgot to edit the barrel length in the previous post from 32" to 24". If you decide to order the software and after you get the hang of using it, you will wonder why you waited so long to order it.

    QuickLoad does not offer a database of loads. At least my version doesn't. It does contain extensive databases of Cartridge case capacities, bullet weights and lengths and a large list of foreign and domestic powders. However, my older databases...

    Wayne, I do not have all of the latest updates but the QuickLoad cartridge-caliber database contains two references to the 25 Krag. 25 Krag and 25 krag Improved The only relevant information that the QuickLoad data provides are the constants...

    Not so much now but, back when I started the going to the two day matches, we camped overnight in tents. I think it was the second match of the year that the boss lever screw decided to sprout legs and ran off into the tall grass. I don't know how...

    I shimmed up the Safety Prime mounting bracket from my Classic Turret Press with washers until the dispenser just set flat on the primer arm ramp and must have just got lucky, as the dispenser actually worked more reliably than when on the 4 hole...

    Your are absolutely correct. My statement should have read "That calculates out to a rate of 321 cycles per hour." This test was performed to test the functional reliability and cyclic rate of the press and not necessarily the number of rounds...

    Yesterday was spent setting up the Lee Auto Breech Lock Pro press and loading a few rounds to test the operation of the press and the load for the S&W Model 39. The load is put together with the Lee 356-120-TC, powder coated with Randy Rat's...

    You can loosen the adjusting nut and slide the handle rod down until the projecting portion contacts the bench on the down stroke. I now have mine at nearly one half length now and the press works so easily that I think I'll cut a relief into the...
