    jdgabbard replied to a thread 9mm crimp in Cast Boolits
    The one think I find useful about the 9mm FCD is in de-Glock-ing brass before running them through the loading process. I've never had a problem with taper crimps in the 9mm, but the FCD does help with Glock bulges in the lower case on 9mm brass...

    Another trick several shooters have tried on reduced loads that seem to make a difference, at least in rifle rounds, is use of a filler such as cream of wheat which helps to take up some of the case volume and level out pressures. I'm not...

    There has never been a round that frustrated me with cast as much as the 9mm. Of course, I find a lot of things frustrating about the 9mm. Such as the good old 4.0-4.5gr Red Dot over a 115gr FMJ filling the case to the point that it's technically...

    I've got a bore scope in both my vehicles. Sellers oft times get a long face when they see a bore scope come out to inspect a bore before buying. A big plus is if you can show them leading in a barrel, you can talk them down, then take the gun home...

    Go with the flat nose. I shot a deer with the other profile, had a long tracking job. I finally sat down, and waited to see the birds finding it.

    I noticed the same difference in the sound of some reloads. Turned out, I had a mixed batch of brass, and the crimp was different, due to slight differences in case length.

    The Value Turret has a 4-Hole option, which I have myself. But as for its depriming, I’d say less than 5% of the primers make it into the primer catch without some type of addition to the press. Like I said, I just designed what I knew would work...

    Years ago, when Sharon Rifle Co. shut down, and became Montana Rifle Barrel Co. under Jerry Cunningham, they did a lot of destructive testing. They loaded up to I believe 1400 gr. powder, with 14 patched round balls, and never damaged a barrel...
