    Effects of various alloys on diameter.

    Can someone refresh my memory??? Many years ago I read an article about adding various alloys to the melt and the effect it has on the as cast finished diameter of boolits. I pretty sure I read this before the dawn of the computer age so it must be in some of the books or magazines I have but I cannot find it. Or is there maybe something newer available on the topic????

    You're most welcome, yt! Also, Lyman's old "Cast Bullet Handbook, 3rd Ed." has a section & chart of predicted dimensions [of CB's] using various alloys and metals, e.g., Lyman #2 and pure lead.
