    beagle replied to a thread 25-20 question in Cast Boolits
    If it's a factory Marlin M1894, stick with the 257420 Lyman. With its factory twist, the longer/heavier the bullets and you get instability and keyholes./beagle

    beagle replied to a thread Over lube a bullet??? in Cast Boolits
    Yes. The resulting problem is lube purging fliers outside a normal group. These can't be predicted but are often discussed by cast bullet "benchies". On a 311466, I'll normally lube two grooves and let it fly./beagle

    beagle replied to a thread Angled Grease Grooves? in Cast Boolits
    I think we often times get hung up on the amount of lube needed by a cast bullet. We know that Keith's square grooves made release more difficult but at the time was probably necessary due to the lubes available. With the improved lubes we have...

    Shot some in wooden trays not long ago from an estate sale. They fired fine. Also some old CCIs with no Zip code on the address. Bunch of the odd sized LP primers that were government made (probably through the DCM) and a whole batch of Berdan...

    Now, wait a minute here boys. I've had two Posi Prime tools and both cracked and I sent them back w/o the punches. I have a .22 slide top ammo box with punches in it of all vintages. I know I've used Posi Prime punches in my bench mounted RCBS...

    That's the right way to do it. Also notice the notch on the front of the cock. If you guns don't have that, get out a file or Dremel and do it. It directs fragments away from the eyes, and helps split the fired cap for easier removal.

    Yep, they do that. People around here open the hoods of the vehicle when camped in the back country. The pack rats prefer enclosed spaces

    I didn't find much, if any difference in the roughened balls. Both the smoothbores I have at the time shoot like rifles, so what would I do with a bit more group tightener? If I am on target, they are going to hit.

    I don't think it was made for trade, as the gun has much nicer engraving than the Chief's grade guns.

    Steel wool will not cause a problem, as long as you let the previous layer of finish dry completely before rub out.

    Double kudos to the people who did all the lifting and gathering chairs and tables, providing water and varous great dishes to eat. A big pot of lima bean soup is bubbling away as a result of some killer stuff Tim brought. Ammohead's brisket in a...

    I have 2,000 rounds of Winchester/WW brass (no nickel) cases sorted into 500 round packets. These are for the most part once fired, FL resized and lightly tumbled. These are straight walled cases (no canelure). PM me if interested./beagle

    I've started claims before, and have found out they were delivered by the post office, rather than Fedex. Since I don't go down the mountain often to check the mail, I didn't know it had been sitting in my mailbox. Just another time in my life I...
