    The .327 is all about velocity. Powder coated Lyman #2 alloy and a wfn boolit is where i would start. Not much point in buying it to load light. I thought a long barreled single seven would be nice if the price would get back to normal.

    Cosmic_Charlie replied to a thread No use for FMJ in Our Town
    It's what i shoot in my AR15 Sporter rifles, and used to shoot mostly in my 9mm's until i got powder coated cast to work nicely. Back when it was cheap i shot a good deal of .308 ball ammo too. And come think of it, that is what my AK's get fed....

    I use treated walnut media. Does the trick quickly with little fuss.

    Cosmic_Charlie replied to a thread Primers in Our Town
    Got enough primers to last another year. Factory ammo to last at least that long though really none im .38, .357, .44 or .45. Ammo for revolvers, particularly magnums is too darn expensive.

    I have a newer 686+ deluxe and it is a fine shooter. My throats are tight at .357" and that is what i size to. No leading at all and very good accuracy. My alloy is softer, usually 20/1 or close to it. Loads up to 1,200 fps. Never bothered to...

    I would hunt up a source for pure lead then. Roto sometimes puts that on sale.

    Oh, something else as well, Midway claims UPS is 18 days behind on processing hazmat orders. Ordered 1000 CCI SPP last week and my order is stalled out. Don't like paying nearly thirteen cents each for primers but i want to keep shooting.

    I did get a couple Lyman sizer dies when the RCBS ones were hard to find. 4 holes is overkill and causes more problems without solving any, at least with the softer lube i use.

    Yes, they are good in the upper Midwest. I picked a bunch near Merrilan WI a couple summers back that were fantastic. Wifey made strawberry rhubarb pie.

    Our 2016 Avalon gets close to 30 in summer and about 28 in winter based on it's read outs. Our Camrys got into the low 30's. I reckon folks will just keep paying the high price and won't get testy until gas in rationed or unavailable.

    I have a brass 2 cav hp mold from MP. Good hot preheat and pot temp about 800. The 2 cav drops the boolits easier than the 4 cav. Been using 20/1 without any lead sticking problems. The shallow cup point pins are easier to get good results from...

    The second post was supposed to go to a DHS server. They fixed the bug in the new software.
