    I gave it a thought, as I really like it in the 9mm and keep it on hand. But I am also very cautious with Red Dot, as I have heard it likes to spike in pressure a bit more than other powders. And because of this is no longer recommended in a lot...

    Kosh, thanks for the reply, and the pointer. I've never read up on BE-86, and none of my manuals list it I do not believe. I just took a look at the Alliant website, and found they have the data for it. I will look into this, it may be the route...

    I've been working up some loads with the MP Molds 357-125-HP using the Penta Pins in my 38spl revolvers. These are sized to .358" after powder coating. So far I have experience excellent accuracy from this boolit in everything I've fired it in. ...

    Thats awesome work! I've never been able to get there with cast in rifles, but I have gotten to under an inch in pistols out to 25yds. But my eyes ain't what they used to be, so I doubt I'll get there again.

    I've just found that there isn't a whole lot that it can do that other powders can't. 2400 and Unique are almost "universal powders", they can be used in so many applications. So I find H110 to just not have enough versatility for my liking. I...

    Nice video. Your load seems accurate enough, but I'm not sure I'd consider that an adequate self defense loading. But more than well enough for critters. Thanks for sharing.

    Well, WC844 is roughly equivalent to H335. So I could always switch to that as well. However, I have some loads worked up with 1200R which worked very well. What I liked about WC844 was the price, being a surplus/pulldown powder and whatnot. It...

    jdgabbard replied to a thread 9mm and OCD in Cast Boolits
    Correction, Fred. I got ahead of myself and misspoke(typed). It's 4.3gr of Red Dot under the 115gr FMJ. I think the max load data I have is 4.5gr of Red Dot going off of memory. It fills the case quite nicely, with the base of the bullet...

    Never heard of that one before. Had to look it up, I have to say I've never seen one in the wild. But looks like a larger version of the 358242.

    Some pistol loads are well known to be best compressed. H110 comes to mind in the .357mag. Never heard of shooting compressed shotshell loads. But then again, I don't shoot shot shells in my pistols. So I'm not up to snuff on the modern doings...

    jdgabbard replied to a thread Bore Sized Boolits in Cast Boolits
    I have found that in 9mm I have to go .002-3 over to even stand a chance at not leading. So much so I threw away my 0.356 sizer. But most of the time 0.001-2 works for me. Never tried any at exactly bore diameter.

    This thread is a good read. I've eyeballed these over the years, and the design just looked so cheesy that I never dropped the cash to buy one. After reading this, I may change that...

    Scrounge replied to a thread 3D printing in Our Town
    That sort of part is usually injection molded, not 3D printed. 3D prints are built up in layers of little blobs of melted plastic, the layers are not usually very well adhered to each other. If you use a filament that can be affected by solvent...

    jdgabbard replied to a thread Primers.. in Cast Boolits
    Pertaining to powder, I've got a keg of BE that has $189 marked on it. So I don't consider the $228 to be TOO high. Higher than I'd like to pay, but within reason... If 8lb kegs of typical pistol powders get get to the +/- $200 range, I don't...

    If you're interest in them, just shoot me a PM. I'd probably not see a response on this thread.

    crashdummy, I don't have any jacketed pills, but I do have one of the original Ranch Dog 190gr Molds. This is an older Lee Mold, and if I remember correctly it dropped just a hair undersize. But powder coated it should work out just fine. If...

    I'm with you. While I never saw the main brands at $11/k, I have seen, and bought a lot of, the secondary brands such as Wolf, Tula, etc for $12ish. And let me tell you, that wasn't as long ago as others might try to get you to believe. Last time...
