    Accurate Molds can make a mold that drops .361. Look in his catalogue, when you select a style you like, you can configure a mold and select the dia. Good luck finding a .361 mold. BTW, Ebay is probably the worst to find a boolit mold.

    murf205 replied to a thread 38 s&w experiment in Cast Boolits
    #53rdTennCoc, have you slugged the barrel and cylinder throats? If you are as fond of the gun as you seem to be, a mold that drops boolits at .361 (which you can size for 38 and 357's also), would be a good investment. I load mine as they come from...

    Yep, one made my Mini a good bit more accurate and along with a .040 gas port bushing, keeps the brass in the same county.

    .318-.324 is a pretty big stretch. Not to say that it can't be done but I think the HF black has given the most problems of all their powders. If a boolit can pass the smash test , it can handle a sizing like that. Keep us posted on Smoke's powders...

    Thus insignia should be on the bottom of the tub that you use for swirling the PC/BB/boolit mix. It produces the absolute best static for the shake and bake method. Cool Whip and butter tubs are my source for these. Smokes powder is a huge help...

    Dang Capt, you're looking like a pro. Welcome to the lead boolit mafia! The best part of this little endeavor is you don't have to depend on politicians or viruses to get some great shooting ammo. Just wait until you take a game animal with your own...

    I might have solved 1 (and only 1) of the Mini 14 mysteries. The after market magazines that gave trouble with coming out of the rifle, after releasing the latch, have the softest metal I've seen ina long time. When you release the magazine, you...

    That's another caveat to using Ruger magazines. If something goes south, they will stand behind it and fix the problem, period. I contacted ProMag about my problem and the said let them know the model and make of the rifle. I did and they have...

    Very true about the akwardness of 30 rnd magazines in the mini. Actually the most handy ones are the 5 rnd and maybe the 10. I guess I got hung up on wanting 20 rounders because that's what I carried in the Army for an M-14. These magazines are...

    Man! I wish they had named Murphy's law after some one else. A couple of weeks ago I saw where Midway had some Pro Mag 20 rnd magazines for my Mini 14 so I sprung for 3 of them. What a bust that was. The first one would not even go into the magazine...

    Anaphylatic shock is the reason I carry my electronic leash with me. I got stung my yellow jackets and was loosing consciousness in my son's yard (by myself of course) when I used mine to call 911 and give them the address before I went down and...

    Welcome to the forum, lot's of help here. What Larry said is exactly what I do and my range lead comes from a place that shoots muzzle loader matches so it is pretty soft. With 2% tin I have shot some loads up to 2k fps with no leading , but I...

    When you add lighting, place the lights over the bench and not over your standing area. I made that mistake and when I wanted to lean over to look at something , it cast a shadow so I moved my lights directly over the bench. Also, the new LED...

    It does indeed look like the Lee mold. You are fortunate to have found one in todayís world! My guns donít seem to care what powder I use. I think it may be because the rounded meplat kind of self centers onto the forcing cone, but that is only my...
