    Oh boy this is scary I am just starting into this slug venture. Seems I may have a leg up with a rifled barrel. I need to hit a 6X10 steel plate at 100 yards. Wondering if this will work out.

    This is me at the pinshoot with a borrowed.500 and some ammo bought from the guy onsite. Wish I had the last run because I went sub 5 seconds and was in first place. Until the very last shot of the match. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Czp6oRbKAVc

    Wish you were closer. I lost the range I was set up at. It had a locked gate. the new place I'm shooting can be accessed by anyone and I hate to put it out there and have it stolen. So its sitting behind the barn right now. I also have enough lead...

    YES YES AND YES BUY BUY BUY. Just get started and it will all come together eventually. I would start with ingot first to get the hang of casting with good alloy. After you get the knack of casting venture into smelting and all that as well.

    personal attack is when I come at you personaly. Not because I make a general statement like lee progressives are junk. I buy chev trucks. Why? Because ive been stung on two fords. Did I make that chev truck or that ford truck. NOPE. I bought, I...

    you don't have a lot of say in what or how I post as long as I stick to the rules and those rules state no personal attacks. A line your coming pretty close to crossing. Maybe there is a bit of bitterness because I basically threw away 500 bucks on...

    1/4 inch boiler plate I got from work back in the day. Steel pipe out the back and a large steel pipe with a plate welded on the bottom to catch the lead. Ive shot a lot of rifle into it. Only thing ive had trouble with are bullets like the barns x...

    do me a favor and after you get a some rounds down range post a review of it. I'm think pretty serious about one. Id like to try one of those binary triggers and if I'm going to waste ammo I can shoot 9s with cast 5-1 or more compared to shooting...

    Best chicken and chicken eggs are those that free range eating bugs and such. Far superior in my opinion. And as a side note if you have insect problems around your home get some chickens. Chickens are natural insectivores and very good at it...

    yup and every factory round of ammo you've ever shot is run through a final size die to insure it runs in even marginal guns. You think maybe its why they call it a "FACTORY" crimp die

    I once shot a round of ppc with my 454 Alaskan cut for moon clips. Shot about 5 points lower then my average but still good enough that I would have taken 4th place in that shoot. they had to let the other 4 shooters on the line reshoot though...

    650s were designed with a case feeder in mind and without one there not nearly as handy. A 550 case feeder is an add on and the one I tried blocked the ability to put a case on myself if I didn't want to use the case feeder. Heres my take on it. A...

    Ive found the problem claimed way over rated. Ive shot 10s of thousands of 9s 40s and 45s that have gone through a factory crimp die and find at least in those platforms it doesn't hurt a thing. I also will add that in a black gun my main concern is...

    heres my take on a DE. My buddy has two. One a 44 and the other a 50ae. there kind of fun to shoot because recoil is so mild for the power your getting. But there HUGE. to heavy for a belt holster and about as heavy as a light rifle. Even with my...
