    I cleaned the gun... just because I used dirty brass for my last (a quick primer check) rounds. I'm on the edge of sticky extraction here, a clean chamber is a happy chamber. Not much to clean anywhere else,either.

    This is just great.

    CCI 215 primers give more velocity than Federal in this load - but there is more spread,too.

    This is 1740 fps, chrono was @ five meters so real velocity is 530 m/s.

    .

    A light bullet like this NOE 305 is completely shootable at full power, heavyweights get tiring after a while.

    Anyone had any luck with cast boolits without GC but with Hi-Tek in their AR-15s?

    I'm aware that the small pills in 223 are somwhat hard to get right in this caliber, but showing a lot of promise in others this could be done, right? If this could be done I'm sure they would be quite popular with the IPSC guys!

    OOH accurate one? I may need to talk to them and get one for 300 BO for some mad mates.

    Glad the docs got you all fixed up, we need someone to keep Trevor in line, i didn't want to have to be the one to take your place on string him up.

    I'm not the problem...

    Great weekend at GCPC. 2 day IPSC match. came away with 1st in Open Div C grade.
    Looks like a re-grade to B grade.

    Many many of our Green Goodness went downrange in all divisions and many different makes of guns.
    Everyone I spoke to loves our bullets and can't get over how clean their guns are after a 2 day match.
    Hooroo.
    Regards, Trevor.

    You are just someone that will give as good as he gets

    Good to hear the match went well, you do well and get bumped a grade then you have to work a lot harder to move up.

    A happy customer is a good one. I have had good success so far with hi-tek. I'm really not as kind to my guns as i should be, i run a few k rounds through mine before i bother cleaning the barrel, even then, it's just a wet patch, no need to scrub lead out.

    OOH he is one of THOSE?

    We have all seen holes in baffles that we wonder how on earth did they get there? were they going prone and aimed for the sky on purpose?

    I won my division on the weekend too. I think I need a round nose profile bullet to help prevent nose dive jams.

    Hello, fellow boolit casters/coaters!! I havenít been on the forums in a couple of years as Iíve been stationed in Okinawa since 16. Itís great to see the hi-tek and other coating methods are still very alive and well!! I havenít poured lead or coated in a few years now, though I think about it often. Nonetheless, Iíll get back into it whenever I move back to the states... still have plenty of HTís powders in nice cool and dry storage. Cheers fellas and keep up the great work!!

    Your going to love this. Here in the states the media has made people super sensitive to the idea of use of firearms to do all kinds of things illegal. And has left out the thousands of times a year a gun is used by private citizens to save a life. It has gotten to the point where if a person in Maryland shoots a gun we hear about it in Alabama. Whatever happened to a local news focus. Anyway, we were with our Granddaughter as she had some minor surgery at the hospital yesterday when I saw your post. I really didn't think when I pulled it up on my phone and just punched play on the video. As the gun was going off my wife was having a fit to turn the sound off immediately. Even though it was only us in a private room with the door shut she was afraid someone was going to call the coppers on me. Wonder what would have happened if WW II had been on TV?

    Welcome back to the forum. When will they ship you home?
    While I work at it, it is by God's grace that it happens. So it is best I ask him what, how and when before I start..

    I have one year of assignment tour remaining, but I’m strongly considering extending two years, the last two of my military career. Avenger, the media has turned the US in on itself and it’s getting worse. Everyday I hear about the media and left’s craziness and makes me wanna vomit.

    Josh... It's not just the US.
    Australia is being run by Vegan anti-everything types.
    And the Lefty Media is pumping it out to school kids.
    Teachers are feeding kids their own agendas, rather than educating the young minds.
    Come the revolution............

    I'm still having no joy with cast and hitek.

    Today I tried coww + 2% tin. Water dropped 130gr rn bb coated twice in 6ml of 120ml/20g powder. Baked 11min at 200C. Sized to .358 using a spray of diluted aqualube. 4.0gr of universal. Even seperated out the thicker s&b brass like ausglock mentioned. I'm not sure what else I can do differently.
