    correct Tomme. I don't think people pay enough attention to the wall angle of their lube grooves when they have a mold cut. they also have a tendency to put too much lube groove in them. especially a single groove boolit.

    every time I looked into doing it everyone wanted a contract signed between you and them. they all wanted to max out your days out of country it was generally something like 90 on and 30 off. or just enough off you kept your citizenship status...

    kept at target velocity levels it is a fine powder. I have good luck with it in the 45 colt for cowboy type stuff, the 41 mag for short range bunny bustin, and probably everything mentioned above. the place where it really excels is in large...

    it will burn dirty. I would be concerned if it cleaned up because your starting to push 45+K at that point. if you can get the powder up near the base of the bullet I think you might end up with a decent BP type load. I know 4831 will shoot...

    the original lube groove for the XCB was just that one groove it was never supposed to be a large one. the idea was to give about 68-% drive band length after set back from firing. the area above the gas check was also supposed to be a bit taller...

    Remington has been putting throat in their barrels more like marlins old lever guns than anything approaching saami specs. if you had a true saami spec throat the rcbs 30-165 silhouette bullet with 17-18grs of 2400 is real hard to beat if you...

    I will answer why they measure lower than calculated on the artful bullet forum if anyone is interested.

    it is pretty darn good in the beeswax though. probably better than the newer stuff really.

    they are not closing their store is still there and they will be doing their travel routes as normal. their website is now basically just brownells. which tells me they are looking to retire.

    if not then other commercial casters will have the design or can get the design. magma engineering is the maker of the equipment that most commercial casters use so they all have access to the same stuff.

    shoot your rifle and see. it will do what it does, I seen a recent test with 4350, and this bullet where 2500fps seemed to be the better accuracy node. the groups blew up, come together, blew up again, then come right down to about an inch, all...

    usually the flat rate boxes have 50$ insurance automatically, you gotta pay for more. start a claim I bet they don't really care and just give you the 50.

    if nothing else you found out that a proper .358 diameter bullet won't leave lead deposits behind in your Taurus. but an undersized hard cast one will.

    you'd never see it on target from a revolver. stroke it down the barrel at 2500 fps and it will make a difference.

    they will work just fine. I have shot that design and it works quite well at lower velocity's, they also slide through most leverguns pretty slick if you use the longer cases. they are made in a magma engineering mold if you like them and want...

    the 213 will shoot 358 just fine. at least all of mine do, I like the 213. it will handle some real hot 9mm rounds but still function on the low end also. I mostly run about 3.2-3grs of red-dot or the like under a heavier bullet than your using...

    he is a member here. I wouldn't be too down in the mouth about scoring 36 lbs of zinc. it has all kinds of uses in the casting world. set it aside and move on, as you read and learn more you'll figure out what to do with it at some point.

    44-47grs in a ladder test with a well or decently fit bullet will get you there. usually water dropped ww's and some soft with just enough tin for decent fill out is all you need. that hunter mold shown above will get you there, as will the XCB...

    pressure on the antimony alloys will act differently than pressure on the tin alloys. both internally and externally. antimony crystals will break down under pressure and allow the alloy to flow easier. that is why it is used in extruded lead...
