  1. Have you measured the diameter of your brass at the case mouth and lower for comparison? I usually see a few thou diff when the crimp is starting to engage Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have personally had great luck with titegroup. A little smoky behind lead but great behind jacketed or plated. I use it for 9 38 40 45 and 44 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Kidd will cut any barrel length you want I think. I've had great luck with my barrel they did and the machine work is amazing! Www. Coolguyguns.com Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have one. And sold a couple. Do you have any pics? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Checked mine and only one out of seven boxes even had a stamped lot number on them. Maybe my stuff is older but looks like I am safe from the dreaded double charged 22 catastrophe of 2014. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just measured. As cast they were 0.3555. After tumble coat they are 0.3595. Pretty much perfect for sizing now and testing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Well I haven't checked yet but they also still have to be sized. I am actually trying to increase the bullet diameter to help w leading issues with my 9mm loads. As cast they are still a little too small Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'm a bit behind everyone else with giving this a shot. But tonight I decided to pry PC with a gun, and with the brass tumbler method. I coated some 300 BLK 230 grain, some 9mm, and some 44 mag that I cast up quickly for the test. Pictures arent all the best but here the 300 blk dusted and going in the oven And here they are after cooking for 20 min at 375 For the 9mm I tried the tumble coat. I then stood some one end using gloved fingers, some on end using hemostats, and I just dumped a few to see if that might work. Coverage from the tumbler To the left are on
  10. You should sell it to me ;) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Na I can rotate the sight with my fingers. It's like it has tension applied or twist in the wrong direction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. So what's everyone's favorite load for a cast boolit with H110 or TiteGroup?  Does the Tumble Lube force me to keep them under a certain speed to prevent leading if I don't decide to PC them?
  13. I've considered having a smith mill in the slide for a dovetail like the Bomar, but I keep thinking it will ultimately hurt the value of my Colt. Not like I plan to sell it but if I had to I'm not sure it wold help the value any. I'll slide it apart in a bit and see if I can figure out what's causing it. When I bought it Colt said it would be a 6 month turn around and I like shooting it too much to part with it for that long. So I took it to a local smith and he fiddled around with the roll pin but couldnt straighten the sight. His eyes arent the best anymore so who knows...could be a cra
