New server, missing data

The good news is that the new server is working OK. The new server is more up to date, bigger, and supposedly better ...... and it supports the latest phpBB forum software, which is supposed to fix a lot of bugs. The bad news is that I was not able to figure out how to import the database from the o...

Random thoughts on bullet design

An ongoing debate on bullet design ....... Worst (and most common) design mistake: long unsupported nose. An unsupported nose will slump to one side in the barrel and cause poor accuracy (exception: some soft alloys may obturate enough to make an undersize nose fit the barrel, especially with black ...

how I heat treat wheelweight

There is more than one way to do the job, but the following method has always worked for me, and no special equipment is required. -- apply gas checks and size (usually with a push-thru sizer). The bullet is not lubed at this time, though sometimes a teeny bit of lube is used to ease the passage thr...

Cast in 7-30 carbine

From the old forum: Today was Christmas, Fourth of July, and my birthday all rolled into one, because my pressure trace arrived !!!! :lol: I mounted one of the strain gages on a 7-30 TC carbine, just because the TC is amenable to mounting a gage. This gage was mounted with superglue so that it could...

plain base bullets in the wheelgun from hell, continued

In yet another valient effort to get plain base bullets to shoot well in my 4" S&W M29 with the 0.4336" throats, today I tried using Rooster HVR lube, instead of the homemade lube EL#3 that was used in the previous experiment. Rooster HVR has been the cleanest lube tested to date in ot...

Paper patch in 30-06: with and without a GC

from the old forum, some parts were lost in the move to the new server so the thread seems to ramble: Today I tried paper patching a 165 gr hollow point. This bullet started out as a conventional lubed bullet, more or less a loverin design, that I had shot last year and it shot about as well as any...

My system for recovering fired bullets

I've always wanted to be able to recover fired cast bullets without any damage to the bullet. So here is my first attempt at bullet recovery. The barrel is full of water. I open the door of the barn loft and shoot down into the barrel. Their is a wire mesh basket at the bottom of the barrel to catch...

Re: 357 Mag Contender Barrel III

Today's mission was 1) more tests with the 155 bevel base & CCI 550 primers and 2) a 155 gas check bullet. Unless otherwise stated, all of today's loads used oven treated WW, sized 0.359", lubed with HVR, and nose sized. Range conditions were good today, no mirage. Bevel base with 0.003&quo...
