    Broke my orange bodied #55 last year and called Lyman for replacement parts: None available, but they sold me a brand new one for $60 delivered. Maybe because they knew the Brass Smith was about to be released? Not complaining, but the first...

    Ziebart and Rusty Jones, both long gone, offered it. The Ziebart stuff smelled the same as the stuff we use, but was a lighter color.

    Why not use just IMR 4198 with that CB in the 7.62 x 39mm? Btw, I've used 14gr. Alliant 2400 with Ly. #314299 in my 1st SKS and got surprisingly good accuracy (CB was gas checked). When you get tired of the inconvenience of duplexing, and when...

    I tried to post about this yesterday, but got caught amidst the server changeover. To wit, bore riding bullets are also know as two diameter bullets as mdi suggests. If the bore rider in question fits correctly, it will be engraved the rifling,...

    Maven replied to a thread Saeco 315 in Cast Boolits
    Rocket, I have a 3 cavity Saeco #315 and found it to be the most accurate CB for my Marlin #336 (Microgroove) .30-30 Win. if I sized it to .310". I sold the rifle years ago, but got excellent results with WC 820/AA #9, IMR 4198, and AA 5744. Were I...

    6pt-, Sometimes it is less than 3 weeks. My last one, a .618" RB for my 20ga. trade gun, arrived in ~2 weeks and cast exactly at the dimension I asked for (.618").

    I'll soon need to place a BP order and was wondering about the new Goex BP produced for Graf & Sons*. Any pros? cons? Thanks in advance! *previously produced by Wano (green label; red, white & blue "Schuetzen" label).

    6pt-, I have several Tanner RB moulds and highly recommend them. Fit & finish are excellent, use standard handles (e.g., I use RCBS), and they cast to your specification. Priced right too!
