    There you go the Ranch Dog designs were designed for Marlins chamber. The 350 Gr is a great boolit and accurate if you do your part. That is if you feel 3/4" groups at 100 yards accurate from a GS :)

    This will be long winded but for myself 45-70 brass is not cheap and I hope to make it last as long as possible. I use the standard RCBS die set. I did try the cowboy die set but other than looks they did the same thing lol. If you set up the...

    Before taking it apart, I would get a spray can of Remington lube, spray it inside and run the lever several hundred times.

    To interpolate is to go between a start and max charge. To extrapolate is to assume that since a Speer 150 gr bullet is listed as a max with XX gr of XYZ powder a Hornaday 150 gr is also safe. i suspect most of us do that. It would also be assuming...

    NOE 135 gr conventional lube from a few years back. I run a CZ 75 almost 25 years old. If you are starting to see a pattern here with the 135 there is a reason for that.

    While it is a large part of it it doesn't address the shortages and transportation issues with other products. Most of us cast and reload to avoid shortages. I cannot imagine the mindset of any board member that didn't have 10K of primers and...

    Pertnear, if you have time to play with the numbers get the Serria loading manual. In many loads they give separate data for IMR and H powders. Check their loadings of similar cartridges of each in 4198 and you have some numbers with which to work.

    If you are just looking to get rid of a few boolits you are right - it's not worth it. If you want to get back into casting after - go for it.
