    glockky,

    It may be the volume of shipping(s) going on at this time of year. I received a shipping confirmation from Dillon Precision on the 3rd, still haven't received it. AZ to OK via USPS, shouldn't take this long.....?

    Hang tough.....

    I alloy and cast my own bullets. I shoot low velocity charges, usually just enough to cycle my pistol. I shoot a CZ75. Even with low velocity loads I get some leading at the end of the chamber beginning of the rifling. I have always used Thompsons Blue Angel lube in my Lyman lubricator sizer. Any preferred lube suggestions? Many Thanks in advance. Jerry

    I haven't tried any other lube than the RCBS lube that came with my sizer. I cast .41, .44, and .45 mostly and being in my 60's don't feel a big need to push them hard. I've been thinking about trying 45-45-10 for some 45-230-TC boolits but what stick lube for around 1000fps for the others. Now that I'm retired, I might start casting for my 30/30 too. I don't have a heater but I can get one if I need to. Thanks

    There is a "run" on ammo, ammo reloading supplies, and guns right now. Powder Valley just put out a bulletin asking for understanding of their slow shipments because their volume of order is up 10 fold. We wil all just have to be a little more patient during this pandemic.

    My suggestion is to tumble lube with White label 50-50 lube. or Straight Lee Liquid alox. its messy-er but I'm running 38 special loads to 1275 fps out of a carbine (per my chrono) with unsized 98% PB TO 2%Sb boolits and getting zero leading. Leading cam be a boolit fit issue, so leave em unsized, or oversized if they won't chamber. also don't overcrimp, as that will swedge down the boolit diameter just enough to cause leading.
