Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: 7.62x39 load data using WC846

WC846 is basically the Military version of BL - C (2) so it should work just fine in 7.62 x 39.

Re: Alliant 2400 With Cast Bullets

Res45, good groups you got there. I've never shot 2400 in a rifle load but, have used a lot in handgun loads. Alliant 2400 is a pretty versatile powder with cast bullets in handguns as well as rifles and it's why I keep several lbs. on hand at all times. For pistols, I only use it in my 357 mag. ca...

Re: Alliant 2400 With Cast Bullets

I will be reloading mainly for 30 cal with bullet weights from 155 to 200. I'll use the Lee Alox tumble lube for now. Rifles would include Enfields, Arisakas, Mosins, an M1917 and a MAS-36. All bullets will be gas checked. Hope that helps. I will not be shooting much past 200 yards, and mostly 50 t...

Re: Powder coating

I've never preheated any of my cast lead bullets I plan on PC'ing I do on occasion wash my bullets in 100% acetone if I've been handling them much to remove any oil that may have gotten on them from my hands during inspection while looking for culls. I usually try and wear Nitrile gloves when doing ...

Re: Powder coating

Cast up a bunch of 45 ACP HP's a couple weeks ago and PC them this past weekend. It was pretty warm out and the humidity was up in the high 80% range so I did the shake and bake in the house and set my toaster oven up out on the back porch. While one batch was baking I had another batch getting read...

Re: Powder coating

I haven't tried the shake and bake methods yet. Seems to messy and too much work. I use a electrostatic spray gun and just spray them on a tray and pop them in the over for 15-20 min. I have the sprayer as well and it does a great job especially with powders that don't tumble well or when you have ...

Re: Powder coating

and you push velocity to over 1200 fps, to jacketed velocities. I can get jacketed velocity along with excellent accuracy with the proper BHN cast lead,gas checks and traditional lube in my 30-30 mainly due to the fact that it has a 1:12 twist bore which allow me to push the velocity higher an stil...

Re: Powder coating

What is the point of the powder coating? Does it act as a lubricant? The answer to your question is basically yes it replaces other types of lubes normal used with cast lead bullets. Some of the other benefits are less to no smoke,clean hands and bullet seater dies as there is no residue on the bul...
