Will You Sell Blank Blocks With Hardware?

Hello, I love your molds. Especially the brass blocks, spruce plates that have a decent size hole in them, and the "stud with lock nut" spruce plate attachment option which is much better than I've seen on some other mold set ups which just scream "Corner Cut Here". As you yourse...

Re: 40 Caliber Volcanic,

So is it a true lever action in that the tube under the barrel is a magazine and it feeds multiple round reloads while working the trigger guard like a winchester, or is a rolling block single shot style action. Don't get me wrong it's cool either way just really cool if it's the former.

Cast bullet penetration testing - wood as a test medium?

Okay, I recently did some penetration and terminal performance testing of some cast lead shotgun slugs (oversize cast bullets). Mainly due to the fact that it was quick and handy at the time I used some big Douglas-Fir rounds as a testing medium. These were from dead standing dry timber that had bee...

Re: Airgun .308 bullet shape

. . . . it may be that the only solution is to eliminate all alloy choices except wheelweight. :cry: Please, please, I know it's your business but if you do eliminate alloy choices to keep people from creating this problem. Please, please, make it caliber category dependent and not a blanket situat...

Re: 9mm bullet design

Have you slugged your bore? I've found that semi-auto handguns can very significantly in internal bore dimensions. If for example you have an oversize bore that's running 0.358" and your shooting bullets sized for a normal 9mm bore at 0.355" to 0.356" then this could be the problem. I...

Re: One mould for .50 S&W & Beuwolf

Although I do not personally cast and load for any of the big 50-cal guns I am somewhat familiar with them due to the fact that my GF does own several different 50-cal guns and casts and loads for them. So by default that does give me a little bit of knowledge about them. First, there are two differ...

Any final conclusion on strain gauge adhesives?

I am the new owner of a RSI Pressure Trace II system going on a couple months now. So far the single gauge included with the unit has stayed glued to the barrel of my 12ga. NEF-USH without incident but I am well aware of the fact that it is a matter of when not if the adhesive will eventually fail a...

Re: 40 s&w cal desing questing

Since all of the molds that MM cuts are lathe bored and his process necessitates a minimum 0.18" flat meplat you will not be able to produce a true complete RN boolit mold with his software. You can, however, shrink the meplat down to the minimum size and use the correct nose profile selection ...

Re: softwood floors

Excellent craftsmanship there for home-made lumber. The only thing I would be personally worried about would be it warping as it cured over the next couple years or so, scratching due to it being soft wood instead of hard would be somewhere near the bottom of my list of worries. The warp factor is w...
