    Too bad Mountain Moulds design program went away with his retirement. There are 35 cal moulds available to at least 300 gr . You might post for a few heavies in swapping and selling...... Is the bullet exchange still there ? The RCBS 35-250...

    The 45-70 can be as exotic or boring as you want it to be . I have moulds in .458-.461 at 255 , 380 , 385 , 415 (405) , 417 (420) , 530 (500) , and 535 gr . Of those so far the 405 gr 458193 has been the most alloy , powder , load level flexible...

    M Tecs description is the way I understood the progression to the short . With a .735 case length that doesn't work with the Colts rim on the 1.1" Schofield S&W cartridge. W/o looking it up that sounds even shorter than the GAP .

    What does the cartridge or cartridges you want to shoot cost per 100 ? Do you shoot 100 of 2-3 per year ? I started casting because 45 Colts jumped from $32/100 to 38/50 for 50 rounds marginally suited for my needs . I already reloaded so it was...

    Get a .279 mould and patch it . I have a good 7mm that delivered most of what I wanted . It was .284 I patched to .285 . So far a core .001-.0015 over bore patched to .001 over groove has worked for me . I had a stupid run during work up I...

    Between the Ms and I we have 5 scripts. Pill vials , aka bottles , are wonderful things. It sucks always carting a pharmacy around but at 60 bottles a year that are basically air tight , UV resistant, and quite handy it's made a little better . ...

    To further the expander, M die , etc difficulties ........ I recently found that many sizing dies grossly oversize , and even more so for our needs . As an example the 2 sets of 6.550SR , well known to need at least a .267 dia jacketed , size...

    Well pictures would really drive it home . While it's a shame about the rifle and the powder you being uninjured and able to tell the tale is a good thing . I learned an important lesson about weighing bullets from a new to me mould through a...

    Don't know if I dropped my 2 . 231 just hasn't been readily available to me . The 15# keg of Unique Dad gave me is almost gone . It's only taken me 20 yr . :) I bought an 8# of Unique just after the 08' elections. Dad brought me a second...
