    taz...I've used the same tactics, buying the lowest velocities I could as a safety factor. I've recorded higher velocities also with the first CBS, (cold bore shot) but I don't remember whether it was with the (1) a swabbed clean bore or (2) a...

    Congratulations tazman.... I can appreciate what you've done and shared here, like I said the other day..."Sometimes you feel more like a Secretary on the range than like a Shooter!" It's the consistently higher velocities that catch my...

    I always thought this also. For those who beagle molds--- do your boolits round out when sized? PC adds .001 to .003 per coat, I would go with your regular coating process BUT when you bake multiple coats, only bake the coats until the PC...

    That's an interesting concept, one I've never heard explained before... Both my rifles, the CZ452 & Sav. MKII make more velocity with these last 3 bricks of what I now am calling (E. match) 'substandard QA'. Here's the numbers with the CZ452...

    Another important feature is having a good-sized opening to discharge the grass. With a rear discharge mower, you wire the rear door open and hang a heavy canvas/towels to stop anything from hitting you.

    My best groups were with HS-6, W231/HP-38, BE & GREEN DOT under the Lee 356-125 2R powdercoated sized .358/.359 (depending on the gun) European 9MM's require even bigger boolits than that, they slug out at .358 & .3585
