Reloading .270 Winchester on a vintage Lyman Ideal EZY-LOADER.
The start of my 7.62 X 54R cast bullet load development for the 1946 M44 rifle. This is part 1 of a multi part series. Using the Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook and hand cast lead bullets to find a load and fine tune it to get the best groups. Also a discussion of the limitations of the 4 MOA optic.
This process works for my firearms, caution should be used to prevent damage or injury. Thanks for watching! treesablowin

It’s worth dropping over there for a look… FortuneCookie45LCFortuneCookie45LC started posting […]

Does your choice of bullet/cartridge affect how well it resists deflection when shot through thick bush? This is a question on many hunters’ minds, as they are faced with choosing whether or not to shoot at an animal that is partly concealed. Not only that but – even for targets that seems unobstructed – your […]

Trying to make this slug be more accurate Maxx Bear
After looking at all of the powder tricklers on the market (except the Lyman Brass Smith that wasn't released yet) I settled on the RCBS Powder Trickler 2. This was because it was quality built, very sturdy, weighty, adjustable height, extendable tube and threaded tube.
