other than that, worked well. I'm taking my normal Win 1892 to Arizona.

Thanks, DennisCollet Crimp if
Last Round hanging. Follower?


I ordered some S&W 200g from Western Bullet Company.
Thought I'd use my Lee Carbide Crimp Die with the .360" bullets.
Set it high, not cam over to seat, then collet crimp.
See if the cast lead opens some options.

Tim, PM me your address and email, I'll send you some cast bullets that I have gathered over the last few years.
You can try them out, I might even have some of the Western Bullets too.
Unless you are planing on going to Arizona?

Also not the follower, it is the last round I'm inserting into the magazine. It gets hung up on the loading gate door.

Thanks, Dennis

Since I have conquered this project, I is now my nature to move on to another.

I'm planing on selling my reloading supplies, setup and probably a rifle or two in the near future to fund a newer 44-40 or 44 mag 200 meter challenge.

If anyone has any interest, please let me know in a PM or other means.

Thanks, Dennis O.

I can relate, The 200g S&W .360' bullet me thinking if it might be used in a 35remington to get a sub-sonic load.
I have had disappointing results with the Speer 220g and TB -1000fps.
Just as I thought decided to sell my '53 336A in 35rem.
