Re: Finding the barrel vibration sweet spot

I should really just subscribe to the magazine. I'm interested in the topic here. As an FYI, the formatting is all messed up - at least for mobile phones. Most of the graphics are pasted over top of the text, so there's a lot you can't read. I'm not sure if that can be remedied, but I thought I'd m...

Primer bullet push & primer setback

Re: An interesting simple casting experiment

How is this possible? Inquiring minds want to know! Anyone....? Ferris....? Very small voids perhaps...? Forensic review of my lighter than usual bullets usually revealed a void.. bob It's not a void issue. My best guess is it's the result of the mould expanding due to the increased temperature. I ...

Shipping is 9.95 making the total cost $20
Imolared,

Thanks for posting the unreasonable shipping fee which I was not aware of. In that case it's not as attractive. Even shipping 1st class shouldn't be more than $3.

I'd like to hear from shooters that have direct experience, not guesses or assumptions. A shooting friend recently acquired a Pedersoli .45-70 Sharps with a lot of freebore. Al...
