I realize powder coating is a fad, but wouldn't that be an acceptable "lube" (not a lube but a coating that would reduce lead fouling) alternative fo heeled bullets?

Though the addition of a "shell" to the bullet would Chad its dimensions therefore would probably not allow it to fit as nicely in the cylinder.
This has been a “sticky” here since March of 2018……SMH

Hey Hoof!

Question for Y'all;
Were the straight '03 stocks made in several different lengths-of-pull?
I have one made in March 1918 based on the serialnumber, it has 12-3/4" length-of-pull, and the bolt will poke me in the eye when I work it...

I picked up 30-40 milsurp stocks last spring, but was mostly focused on a couple of the Mauser stocks.  I might have a couple of straight Springfield stocks, pretty sure there are some scant stocks too.  All of them would take some work, but are probably usable or good donors. 
Also found this...

This has the conical mold I was referencing, so I wasn't too far off, I believe it recommends sizing the bullet using a "pincher" sizer.

And the dipping of finished cartridge in lube of paraffin or otherwise fills the void I was trying to fill.

I really appreciate all the help!!

Most model rockets are indeed powered by a remixed form of Black Powder, usually wet mixed with a retardant such as powdered aluminum, and Goex has supplied much of the base powder for it.  They (Estes) ought to be well versed in the processes of grinding and mixing powder.

I would venture to say that powder for rocketry is probably a larger market than firearms powder in this country, probably behind only government consumption.  This would include fireworks rockets.

Well hush my mouth!  The things an old phart can learn if he just shuts up and listens/reads.  LOL

Springfield in great condition. Works flawlessly has a new criterion barrel on it with about 35 rounds through it. Has a new S stock as well. Fantastic gun that I just don’t shoot very much. $1050 shipped to your ffl. Thanks for looking and happy new year
I would also be interested in trading for a non race 73 pistol grip rifle in 45lc.
I can send pictures via email or text just let me know

....this an WW1 1903, not an 03A3? I am looking for an 1903?
