    BC17A replied to a thread Bases? in Coatings and Alternatives
    It does take a steady hand to go from the PC table to the oven, but as long as the base is cut pretty flat the boolits are surprisingly stable. It also helps to PC as close to the oven as possible. I set a garbage can, with a piece of cardboard on...

    I set my boolits on 22 cases that are riveted to baking pans so the PC wraps around the base.

    Edit: I just realized this is an ancient thread, but info may be of use to someone else. I totally forgot about the 120TC mold that I modified last winter until I recently read this thread. I thought about trying the 120TC in 380 but i figured...

    Well yesterday went both good and not so good. Sighted in the rifle at 25 yards, then moved the target to 100. First 15 cast boolits were high and only a few hit the top of their targets. Those targets were taped across the top of the stand so those...

    Between making the checks, and getting them on the boolits, I've dropped several on the floor of my shop. My wife even found one in the house and asked me what it was. That one must have gotten a ride in on one of my shoes. I picked up...

    I saw 4227 in the Lyman cast handbook and thought it may be about the fastest powder that would cycle the AR. Looks like it may do just that as 13gn is max. I've also got some IMR4198 and 2460 to try out next time. Boolits weigh right about 57...

    Assembled my first AR with PSA parts last month. It's a 16" with a carbine length gas system. After running several hundred rounds of FMJ factory and reloaded ammo through it I wanted to move on to cast boolits. Managed to catch Midway with some Lee...
