The Darksider's Den / Re: 200 grain, or 255 grain?

Guess I've never seen an actual LEE catalog. I assume it is on-line? I'll do some digging.

Gunsmithing / Barrel liner?
« Last post by Kent Shootwell on July 28, 2022, 08:08:02 AM »
If you have a barrel that was lined by Hoyt and have a bore scope would you take a photo of the bore for me. I’ve read a lot of praise of his work and would like to see one or more to help me judge his work.
Thanks

357 mag makes a neat little BP round .....158 grain LEE flatpoint ...25 grains is about all the powder you will squash in there. didnt chrono it but made a nice sharp crack at the range.

You could try sesame-seeds as a filler between the blackpowder and the 200 grain bullet. 
Sesame-seeds contain about 50% oils, that will help keep fouling soft between shots.
Swiss 2Fg blackpowder is also a good idea; cleaner-burning than other brands.

LEE bullet-molds generally don't have very deep grease-grooves. 
You might be better off investing in a custom mold with extra deep grease-grooves...

LEE does make some good blackpowder molds - the pictures in their catalog give a good accurate guide as to what you get

I like the Big Lube design, and have quite a few of the molds myself.  The only issue I had was quality of some of the molds Lee (although I think he had someone else make them, eventually) made.  Accurate has molds with very similar designs and the molds are the best I've found.  Very durable and drop bullets easily from the first time they are used.  I also shoot a lot of long range BPCR rifle, and the molds Tom makes at Accurate drop the most consistent weight of anyone I've tried - by a significant margin.

Bunk, eliminating the corrosive primers did away with the biggest problem.  The rest is trivial.

Just do what makes you happy!  ;D

Well, Mine ALL are kinda splotchy all over.  No pattern, no real difference from side plate to receiver.  No even by any means, but I just don't care actually.  It's not even whether or not I do or don't want "patina."  I'm just lazy about the outside appearance of my Brass Rifles.  So long as the function is spot on, it just doesn't matter.  Cowabunga!

....... I will trade the cleanup for the smell.

 One day I opened up a plastic jar that had fired (Swiss 2F) 44WCF cases soaking in Moose Milk (10% Ballistol/90% Water) . My then 8 year old granddaughter lifted her head and loudly proclaimed "GRANDMOMMY, ONE OF THE DOGS JUST POOPED IN THE HOUSE".  I didn't know you could pull a muscle from laughing.  ;D

Both sides are the same Abilene. If mine looked like yours it wouldn't be a big deal.
