    I also bought the "MP 350 Military Smokeless Rifle Powder" said to be "similar" to 1680. I still have a good bit of WC 680 to burn before I open up the MP-350. Any reports on use of MP-350 yet? On another note, Redeye & American Reloading now...

    Just got a notice that Redeye scored primers. I have done business with Redeye in the past and would not hesitate to do so again. Best deal I saw was 5000 Ginex SRP for $500 delivered. Not great, not terrible. Note I am currently using Ginex...

    Any basis for the above?? I kind of get tired at people bashing a powder or saying it won't do something with no real basis. TG is fast burning, easy to ignite and meters great at very low charges. Red Dot / Promo are also fast burning and easy...

    Get the gun and buy some cast bullets of several different weights. Try loads at 327 power level, 32 H&R power level and half way in between. Find out what power level you like and what weight your gun likes. I have a SP-101 in 327. I ended...

    I got my wife a 38 LCRx. The gun is very light and she was very displeased at the recoil from my first batch of ammo using a starting charge and 120 gr bullets. I played around a bunch and found a she was happy with my lightest bullet, a Lee...

    I just posted the following in the other new "primers" thread. I have been watching for SPP for a while Zinc Point has been around for while and were gouging pretty bad for a while. Recently they look to have a lot of SPP and have dropped...

    Do not confuse the 357 AR Max (rimless) with the 357 Max (rimmed) round. The 357 AR Max is a wildcat and no one ever tried to limit it to 40,000 psi. I use brass made from 223/556 in an AR platform gun. The AOL for my stuff would be the same as...

    Not bad. It looks like you are going to be real close to what I set for my goal with the 357 AR max, under 2 moa with a 200 gr at 2000 fps.

    A mix at 7.8 is not bad for 38s and 45s. 9mm can be very picky, but it might work. It will also probably work for mid range 44s. I cast a lot of similar hardness "mystery alloy" with no additives. Give a try as is before paying extra for Sn...

    I have been up just over 2000 fps with a plain base 180 gr ASBB HF red PC out of a 18" 357 AR Max. Real close to 2 MOA. Zero leading. The load was prone to a flyer now and then. With a gas operated gun, I attribute this to the plain base and...

    MJK, Quite a score. You should post your location. You might find fellow boolit men in your area that are willing to help you out and/or purchase a portion of your haul.
