    That would be me also, thanks for the reminder.

    Powder coating mostly solved a SP101 binding problem by keeping the cylinder face and cylinder pivot cleaner. 375F (measured with 2 oven thermometers) and 20 minutes seems to work much better than 400F with Harbor Freight Red. The boolits break up much easier, and don't leave bald spots. Powder opened a year ago and stored in a damp basement sticks fine if the boolits are still slightly warm (not hot!) from casting.

    RCBS X dies make me much more willing to load bottleneck cartridges.

    A whitetail hit in the pump room with a .432 boolit still might not leave a blood trail.
