    I got out my .44's and tested the .44-40 boolets I bought which are .430" dia. They fell right through my 29 & 629's cylinder throats. My reading tells me they should be bigger to work well. In my previous testing they didn't do very well but...

    I'm still waiting for my LGS to get the ~100 gr boolets I ordered in. It's been about 3 weeks now, but in the meantime I'm processing brass and am considering drilling flash holes a set of brass for larger primers holes in the .308. I've got about...

    Many years ago I went to the range with a friend and was shooting, he fired off his '06 and the bullet hit the ground about 50 yards out?? When he ejected the case it was straight walled! He had loaded his '06 with a .308! He had two similar guns...

    Krag 1901 replied to a thread M1 Garand in Military Rifles
    My first experience with the M1 was in 1960 Military school where we drilled with the M1, never fired them. but as an 85# 14 year old I could do the Queen Anne MOA with ease. Then in 1963 joined the Army and at Ft. Ord was in the last Basic company...

    You all have given me a new appreciation of 700x. I always thought of it as a shotgun powder and have only starting using it as a rifle powder for mouse farts. I'm gonna start up my .44 Spl reloading I've got lots of brass 1-2 ties fired and will...

    I'm going to be loading some 210 gr RNFP .44-40 boolets in the .44 and 158 gr SWC in the .38 so that 4-5 gr of 700x in the .44 and 3-4 gr in the .38 are about the right range of loads for my needs. Since I'll probably be using my Lil' Dandy...

    I have a bunch of 700X left over from my trap shooting and wondered if it would work as a low velocity powder for .38 and .44 specials. I found some loads for .38 but can not find anything for .44 Spl. I have a S&W model 624 I really want to...

    Back in the 70's I worked in an ground radio shop and the gear drives were leaned with triclorethelyene. One lady spilled a batch on her lap and her synthetic pants just evaporated! She took the rest of the day off.

    I bought a cheap ($100 with 4x scope) break action from Big 2 and found it to be excellent for my purposes. I havea shooting gallery air rifle trap and can hit the 1/2" plates every time I can control the heavy trigger off hand at 15 yards. I...

    Mold lube? Using what? I was thinking about using a carpenters pencil to cover the mold top and sprue plate with grapite, but hadn't thought about lube.

    I got a new mold 314299 and want to start casting, just wondered if there is a break in process needed? I have only used Lee Molds, and some well used Lymans before. New mold is oily and thought I'd use ligher fluid to clean it first, then...

    Yesterday I looked up the loading data that is on the net and I must say that the velocities achievable are unbelievable! And in only 2-4 inch barrels! Like a lot of you say, that .32 H&R vel is enough for you, it still is pretty snappy too....

    What about sizing dia and molds? I'm not sure I'd shoot a lot of Hot ammo but like the opportunity to if I wanted to.

    I love the 1885 Browning Low Wall I have, just because it is beautiful, light and the most accurate rifle I have. I just wish it had an ejector like the high walls.

    I haven't bought a new gun in ~30 years and have been wondering about the 327 Mag as a pistol cartridge. I shoot .38/.357 and find them to be fine, but maybe a .327 might be lower recoil and lighter for a hi vel load? Not being a fan of SA I was...

    Krag 1901 replied to a thread .30-40 Krag in Military Rifles
    No, the 312-155-2R is a lot more pointed and does not have the full nose of the 312-160-2R. I have both and find the 155 works well in my .308 but not as well in the Krag. I believe this is due to the lead in the Krag which is made for the heavier...

    For lighter boolets the Lee 312-160-2R is excellent in my rifle. The nose is almost a 314299 shape and fits a bit tighter. With 2400 or 4198 it has done well.
