    I am using a rem 582 to take prairie dogs in south east Colorado. Friend and I drive 650 miles from n.e. Texas twice a year to hunt the pasture poodles. Shooting off crosssticks with the typical strong winds makes for “challenging “ conditions; and...

    About the only thing I have wished for in regards to boolits for my Marlin is a 120 grain design similar to the Lee .30 caliber soup can and a plain base design in the same weight.

    Welcome to the forum! Don’t let the guys who don’t like paper patching discourage you. It’s worth the effort to learn how even if you decide it isn’t something you want to pursue. With your 336, the micro groove rifling requires a larger diameter...

    I purchased a m 70 .375 H & H in 72 and started reloading for it soon thereafter. The gunsmith I visited had a box of Norma unprimed brass which he sold me somewhat hesitantly, saying it would be fine with lighter loads. I loaded up the Norma brass...

    I’ve used a battery op. Bosch drill to turn boolits while using a fine tooth mill file to chamfer uneven bases to uniform contours. I am sure the distorted lead bullet tips could quickly be uniformly turned in the same manner.

    Both 2400 and Re 7 have worked great in my .30-30s ; and h-335 if you want to go faster. And welcome to the forum, Clint!

    I am not aware of a maker who makes a mould of this size; possibly a custom maker? I have a .735” Lyman which I won on eBay several years back.

    Wilderness; I thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments regarding the dingo! Sounds like a tough critter and I laughed at the idea of one attacking the other after being wounded…definitely not coyote behavior. In hunting the...

    wmitty replied to a thread Cast Boat Tails? in Cast Boolits
    Wasn’t the original reason for going to boat tail design jacketed bullets for indirect machine gun fire on troop concentration areas? As in WW I tactics? I realize it improves ballistic coefficient but it sure seems to make it more difficult for the...

    I love coyote stories with happy endings. They ate my cat several years back, and I have not forgiven them.

    wmitty replied to a thread Powder coating in Boolit Lube !
    It appears to depend on whether pistol / revolver boolits are being discussed; or rifle boolits are the projectiles of interest. I have tried to build enthusiasm to make the effort to try powder coating, but I can not see the advantage of P. C. in...

    If you have a case trimmer to cut the excess neck length off easily, it sure is easy to run a piece of .270 win brass into an 8 x 57 size die and prime and load it with cornmeal (or dry bagged rice), tap the case on the bench top and push a piece of...
