  • Posted in thread: load data discrepency on 06-26-2016 at 01:25 PM
    If you use the exact same gun, exact same lot of powder, the exact same lot of bullets (they
    tweak the design without notification), the exact same COL, and the same primers and cases, you
    might get t...

    If you didn't learn when Clinton was elected, you should have learned when Obama was elected.
    Otherwise, wait a few weeks and see where you are...Personal opinion only: I've seen folks pay
    $1500 for a...

    How do you get the melt hot enough (at least 1800F) and how long do molds last at those
    temperatures?Sorry, but I'm not buying it for pure Ag. Maybe for some Pb/Ag alloy or a low-temp
    solder that con...

    Sounds perfectly normal to me.How old were they, 'cause I have noted that the current 10mm Auto
    in manuals are getting awfully close to .40 S&W in terms of velocity.I have no idea how a
    cartridge with...

    Well, I have always shot lead in 9x19 and .40S&W, and they have almost always been SWCs. About
    3-4 years ago, I noticed that my sources for 9mm lead bullets were running 6.8-7.2cents and
    Montana Gold ...

    Wadcutters are generally loaded so the meplat of the bullet is flush to below-flush with the
    case mouth. Semi-wadcutters are loaded so the case is roll crimped into a crimp groove just
    below the bulle...

    Why add anything? Your brass isn't going to shoot better. I find 30 minutes in 20/40 corn is
    all I need.Nut hulls produce a lot of dust--bad for you and it can pack inside the cases.Keep
    It Simple...

    >I know that the max charge in the recipe data is often lower than factory specs anyways.You
    don't KNOW.So, a manual lists a pressure that is under the max, so it's lawyers?Maybe, but it
    can also be t...

    1) Seat to the crimp groove/cannelure.2) ALWAYS start with the start load and work UP. Don't
    assume you can jump in at the max load. I start at the lowest start load I can find. If your
    manual doesn't...

    0.358" works great in all my 9x19s.Suggest your COL may have been excessive and you jammed the
    bullet into the lede/rifling.The solution to chambering problems is to determine the cause:Take
