Re: Cleaning after firing lead projectiles

probably more important is bullet diameter vs groove diameter.
if gas can get past the bullet it will gascut the alloy, causing the worst type of leading.
also, you can fill what grooves you have with lube to aid the black stuff.

Re: Cleaning after firing lead projectiles

hrb bullets sound like they are made from what was once known a taracorp magnum alloy. 2%tin, 6% antimony, 92% lead. it is about as hard as lyman no 2 alloy, 5%tin, 5% antimony ,90%lead, or a little harder, but cheaper to make, primarily due to the cost of tin. this alloy is oretty much stock in tra...

Re: Cleaning after firing lead projectiles

bat, you are an old dog. macguru, the best way to get rid of lead is not to get it in the first place. the 2 main things here are a good lube that works, and equally important a bullet 0.001" over groove diameter. seating alloy bullets in sized cases can but not necessarily will, reduce their d...

Re: 6mm 1-7.5 twist rate

nosler ballistic tip varmint bullets will often withstand fast spinning when conventional bullets will not. this is probably due to the solid base of the nosler jacket. at least this has been my experience in 22 cal fast twist converted to varmint rifle. at the fast spin rate they have very explosiv...

Re: How would a Prize Meeting go on grand final Day.

barry makes a good point.
maybe grand final day would be a good day for such a thing.
this because the attendees would be higher potential for serious membership.
always good to apply effort to non tyre kickers.

Re: brownells aust

glad it is just not me.
sad such a golden opportunity for the seller and buyers is being destroyed with such skill.
would it be worth letting brownells usa know what is really happening this end.
it is ultimately their bottom line that is suffering.

Re: HOW FULL IS A FULL CASE?

john, generally speaking, compression of powder is not a bad thing. it is amazing how much you can compress powder if you do it working up loads, and it is also amazing how compression can be good for reducing velocity spread. the biggest problems with too much compression is bulging cases such that...
