    Zbench replied to a thread Swaging / drawing questions in Swaging
    Agree with Rancher to a point. There are dies which force a larger bullet through a sizing ring to be smaller, but there are limits to how much that can work. .006" should be doable, but might be approaching the limit. After it's over, you still...

    Muleskinner, You are on the right track. Here is some work I did about 10 years ago when evaluating the same topic. To get a true BHN reading you need to measure the diameter of your dimple with a micrometer. Additionally, I used a larger ball...

    Bobby, You can buy a copy for yourself at Corbin's website. It's licensed to me. I have it because I extrude my own, but I thank you for the offer.

    frank505 replied to a thread 458 Lott 730 grain in Cast Boolits
    We’ve shot that bullet in a Ruger 458 #1. I think the load was 58 grains of 3031. Please check that Glenn. Rather odd results though. Wally shot into a Texas hill country dirt(?) pile. Made a cavity I could wiggle my fist in. Shot one later into a...

    Been using that bullet and powder in my 30/30 Imp. Nice light handy rifle with some power at home and in the bear tooth’s. My load is about a hundred feet per second faster, shot some rockchucks and lots of pocket pins with it so far. The cup nose...

    I can see all the discussion about pressures was lost on you. Good luck with your rig. With fluid pressures in excess of 7000#, you will need it!

    Over the years I knocked around the idea of getting a bulldog, liked the idea of a 44 in a smaller frame but never ended up seeing one at the right price at the right time. When S&W came out with the 69 it hit a nerve, I still didn't buy. After...
