cast bullets

  1. The 444 Marlin
    Well the PA rifle season is over. I spent most of the two weeks in the ladder stand through rain, snow, sleet, wind, below freezing temps, and temps in the upper 40's. It sure doesn't feel like the deer season when I was a kid and we had snow on the ground for all two weeks and it never got...
  2. Reloading
    Been reloading for years but just getting into reloading and shooting cast bullets. Specifically loading for the 444. How important is it to thoroughly clean your barrel between shooting jacketed and cast? Is it a problem going back and forth without cleaning? Will it result in fouling, lack of...

  7. The 45/70 Govt.
    Good soggy Monday morning to everyone: Finding myself in possession of a box of really nice WFNGC bullets (45-70/385/LFP G/C BULLETS) and an 1895GS, I thought I'd do some tinkering to make them work together. The bullets are 0.459" in diameter, with a short ogive, so they won't chamber given...
