    Is there a mandatory subscription fee now?
    Not sure what that is about. You shouldn’t be receiving a notice like that unless you had previously signed up for a Team Boolits subscription.

    Can you size .458 to .452 and 358 to 355? would solve a lot of issues for the 350 legend and the 450 bushmaster without buying new molds? what genius it takes to build rifles that are pistol diameter.

    Can I change my handle/name without losing everything?

    Probably a strange question but I have my reasons.

    I am having trouble using the shake and bake method to PC my boolits. Using Powdercoatstore.com powder. Does cold ambient temperature effect the static charge.

    Temp no but several other things will like humidity, type of powder coat and the container can affect the outcome. Keep in mind powder coating was made to be sprayed on with one side negative and the other positive. High gloss coatings work best with Shack and Bake.

    Just to make clear on WW., is just the clip on type.. no stick on's.. I make separate ingots and label. The 9 40 45 are air cooled, PC'd, in shake and bake in a basket I made to fit toaster oven @ 400 for 15min or there abouts and dumped on counter and separated (smack down) to separate some that still clinging together, then Pushed through sized. 300gr. 454 Casull are water quinched from mold, PC'd on tray with baking parchment, dumped in water after cooking, GC installed and then sized (Same Day as they will become very hard) use a touch imperial on fingers when run through sizer, I run them at 1600fps in a ruger, I would not hesitate on a 357 but would read up what others say with your particular weapon! I run 4 different 45acp's with my same load. I use a HTC mold from NOE, for the 45's and are slick side, (no lube grove) for PC bullits. I did get some smearing in the barrels but I ran a hundred or so. May have been they were new 1911's, I carry a light and swab with a chore boy wraped to clean out if i get barrel fouling (quick and super easy to clean), and check often.

    Ima be real I understood very little of that my dad is giving me his ruger sp 101 and I want to start reloading and casting for it I thought 357 would be best but now you’ve got me interested in all this customization also I did not know that I could run 45 in a ruger I was under the assumption that 38 spc and 357 mag were it

    If you look on ytube for elvis ammo, fortune cookie, full lead taco, they all are into PC stuff and can help a bunch also.. I have a couple lube sizers from old neighbors that have passed and I got into casting to try out and went straight to PC'd and have great luck, and it's cheap! My son built me a snail bullet trap an can recycle my lead so I'll virtually never run out even though I have many hundred lbs of WW. Best savings are the casull bullets by far $$.. Also roto metals has different lead alloys for sale and good articles on alloying. Learn about sizing
    for your barrel also helps a bunch.. Good luck to ya!

    I'm sure it's been done, I don't have any experience or advice on that, but I will probably do my research and get into it someday for the 308 AR platform!
