    The short answer is the rifling should be .431 per SAAMI spec, so use a .432 boolit. I'd load up some and shoot 'em. If there is a problem then I'd consider slugging the barrel to find the Groove diameter and if it's over size, then make the...

    you may as well plan that you'll be moving the ingots, even if you don't think you will. I have 50 to 60 lbs of ingots on a pallet type thing, then I stack the pallets 3 or 4 high. I used USPS Med flat rate boxes cut so they are 2" tall, then cut...

    I don't smoke 'em. I heat cycle my new brass molds several times, which starts the patina process, I would think that smoke would obstruct that process. BUT, if a mold doesn't start casting good after 2 or 3 casting sessions, I'll then give the...

    Sorry to be off from boolits, but I have a tape of the movie "Chicago" that won't run. I try to turn the sockets, and they won't move. Am I missing some sort of lock, or is there a problem? Yes, there is a problem, but I don't know what it is....

    I haven't tried any unusual rifle positions, but the custom boolit cycles reliably 100% of the time, when the gun is in any "reasonable" position.

    I like the Lee 41 195gr SWC, but they don't offer it a six cavity configuration, plus my Henry and Marlin wasn't crazy about where the crimp groove is located. I had Arsenal Molds make a custom 5 cavity 41 cal lightweight SWC mold (205gr). The...

    I've found that a lead hardness tester is very helpful if you are gonna be playing with unknown lead alloys. with that said, aged Pure lead boolits will have a blue/grey oxidation on them. After I learned that, I started adding 1/2% tin to my...
