    Here is a picture of the deer, a picture of the load components, and a loaded round. To wrap the RB, I cut a piece of plumbers teflon tape, 6-7 inches long, and while stretching it slightly, completely wrap the ball. Also here is a photo of...

    Just took a nice 8 point buck with my trusty $179, 12 ga NEF Slug Hunter, using the .737 RB. The load consists of 40 gr of Blue Dot + BPGS seal + 1/2" hard cardboard + 1/2" soft fiber wad + .737 Lyman RB, teflon tape wrapped and roll crimped in a 3"...

    GBertolet replied to a thread 357 mag in Single Shot Guns
    I converted a #3 Ruger from 22 Hornet to .357mag, and I love it. A Douglas 1-14 twist 35 cal rifle barrel is what I used. I prefer 160 gr cast bullets at subsonic velocities. Bore is .358, so .358 or larger bullets are required. I like .360...

    GBertolet replied to a thread Headspace in Factory Rifles
    I neck size for my 30-30 788 Remington. Get a Lee collet neck sizer. With cast bullet pressures, you can go a very long time before FL sizing is necessiary. When you have trouble closing the bolt, it's time to FL. Your headspace should be about zero...
