    I make cases for the .43 Beaumont starting with .50-90 Sharps brass. Cut it to 2.05 length in a Harbor Freight circular saw. Then I anneal the cases, lubricate well, and run them through the CH-4D dies. I load them with 30 grains of IMR4198...

    I use mine all the time while hunting in a blind, going to and from, and of all things as a reading light in the dark. Mine has the ability to select red lights which are great while moving about in a blind. Shotgun

    I carry a 45 Colt most of the time but thereís not much in NE Florida that needs anything else. If I know there are snakes around I have found the best medicine is a trusty 12 ga! Shotgun

    Thanks for posting. I use a cz550. Bore is 366 24 inch barrel, 1 in 14 twist (I think). I have done a bunch of testing, the magnum primer gives better accuracy than standard. I use the gas check mold, seems to work well. 36 gr of IMR 4198...

    I Used to form 6.5-06 cases from .25-06 or 270 brass. Worked great. Then I tried some militaty 30-06 and I think I had a thick neck-to the point where I blew up the gun. Welded the bolt shut, couldnít open. A tribute to the Remington 700...

    I look at castboolits infrequently. And now I see a subscription charge. Not a bug deal, cut rather than do a bunch of research I thought Iíd ask. Shotgun

    You know, Iíve been experimenting with cast boolits, and have come to the conclusion that I can just use the chamber for sizing. I use the largest sizer available and shoot it. Works for me. Shotgun

    I live in Florida now. Got to make the changes to my profile. Florida is wonderful, we can hunt hogs, coons and coyotes year around. The cast boolit works just great, holds together, not overly destructive on a 20 lb coon. Shotgun
