Seagrave. Sure I'll be glad to, but it will probably be a week or so before I am able to get out to the range.

I pulled 50 Sierra Game Kings out of my recently reloaded 30-06 because I scaled the powder wrong.

Re-did the powder charge and put new bullets in. This was for my hunting loads. Will put the pulled bullets in my Garand loads.

I had to resize some .357 ammo as they wouldn't fit in any of my revolver's cylinder. I believe I over crimped them.

Running them as subs? A good hard lead bullet may be a nice subsonic load.

Yes on subs. Planning on 9 to 10 grains of H110.

Hard enough to fracture cleanly, but still has the ability to bend some before doing so. If the accuracy and performance is OK, my lead mixture will be a keeper.

Thanks for the info. I'm planning to finish a 300blk SBR build sometime this year and was wondering if a lead bullet would be best for hunting with subs. Thoughts on using these to double lung whitetails at 50 yards?

I would never use this bullet for hunting at any distance. Too hard. No expansion. It would leave two, clean, .30 caliber holes. And not enough velocity for hydrostatic shock. .02

Best bet for hunting would be the Barne's 110 solid copper. They shred Bambi's innards.

I cast the same boolits, no issues with my 300 loads, tho I use A1680 for sub loads. I think I have also run some in my 308 with no issues like keyholing...

Decaped and sized some 38 spl and .223. Then put .223 back in tumbler to clean off lube. Loaded up 100 38 spl 148 grn swc. Used my new press to try it out. man it's slow ing with a single stage. Just hand primed as well because it doesn't have the auto primer attachment, yet!

Changing the dmps g2 around a little, SSAE, STR stock, Tubbs flatwire spring and mounted a 2.5-10 scope on it.

After the tubb spring, Bolt isn't going far enough back to lock it open. I will pull the spring out and reinstall maybe after dinner to see if that fixes it.

Just finished 100 9mm using cast epoxy coated 147g projectiles. My first time loading 9mm. I was surprised but bullet seating was nowhere near as consistent as loading 223. I'm not sure if it has something to do with inconsistencies in the cast slug.

The bold is most likely it. The depth of the bullet base into the case is probably consistent. Your seater is pushing on the ogive but you are measuring from the nose. See posts 87 and 96 for a more wordy version.
