Re: Bullet Stabilization testing?

If you want a real education on cast bullets go over to castboolits. Some of the guys there are very good at making them shoot very well in almost anything.

Re: Powder coating cast bullets

Noe 247 or better yet the HP version of it at around 220 grains is good. I'm working with the HP version right now. I'm powder coating them and trying Hitek as well. Running both through my can from a 7.5 inch barrel.

Re: Better accuracy from homemade converted LC brass using Lee collet die.

I use a stepped NOE expander plug replacement for a Lee universal expander die. Cant help you with the Raniers as I cast and powder coat my own 220 HP and 247's from Noe molds.

Re: sizing

Re: Form 1 Mag Light Questions

They don't play games so there is no sense in trying to tip toe on the ragged edge. A felony is not worth playing with. Their version of constructive intent is what is applicable here until the stamps arrive. It's just not worth it.
