    Beagling a mold only changes the diameter in one axis so you in effect cast an eliptical boolit!

    Here is the expander I made to convert 30-30 brass to 375 Win, .308 to .375 with one stroke of the press. I haven’t lost any cases to splits, but it may happen at some point. Several other people have used this same style with similar results. ...

    I did come across a .50 cal. wheel lock yesterday a friend has. Pretty tempting price for a rifle, I may have to take advantage of it.

    The oceans need the fresh water to maintain a certain salinity level. Salt content gets too high, everything in the ocean dies. California could solve a lot of their problems by shutting down car washes and lawn watering.

    Why not? The tapered expander also has a straight section so the entire neck can be expanded to the necessary diameter. If you will test it, I will make a tapered punch for you or the OP. Let me know what die body you will use to hold the punch.

    Several people have said that new Starline brass is so clean that it is “more sticky” than once fired no tumbled brass, which can lead to problems on the first loading. You might try tumbling some of the brass for an hour to see if that fixes the...

    Even for just the lock mechanism that is way too low. A good flintlock costs that much. The wheellock is much more complex.

Signature


The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
