    Yeah I remember drooling in the 90's... Over here we have quite a few of these,mostly forgotten in safes.

    I'm going to save this one,to be used again like it should.

    A coated .4335 bullet can be pushed through all cylinders,I'll slug the barrel next week when I load my pot with pure lead for RB:s.

    You aint just kiddin'. It made all the difference in the world with my 629. The groove was a tight .429 and the throats were too. 2 cylinders were less than that. I had to ream the throats to .431 and the Lee die to .431 but it was well worth the effort because the leading stopped immediately, and the accuracy got markedly better.
    IT AINT what ya shoot--its how ya shoot it
