Yeah 250-255 somewhere in that area. Guess it depends on your alloy just how much they drop out at. I've not weighted these so am not sure the exact weight of them. He sent me 50 of them half lubed and half unlubed to try. Will have to get them loaded up and try them when I can.
Well, Greybeard; I can tell ya how much they weight. Those in the pics sans lube weigh 250gr on the nose and with the lube in they weigh 252.9gr. The alloy is WW plus 1% extra SN. Your thumbnail will tell you its quite soft. Thems good pics and I hope you enjoy sending them bad boys down range!
Pigeonroost Slim I'm sure I'll enjoy sending them down range after my EMF Dakotas and the EMF Hartford 92 gets here. The styrene packing block held up just fine in shipment. Still in good shape. Now getting them lubed ones out ain't proving easy but I'll take care of that when I get out to load them. First gotta empty some as rat now I don't have any empties to refill.
Goatlips, on the lube. That particular bullet seemed to have some impurities or something in the lube and it just so happened I had it turned to where it showed in the photos. The rest of it did look pretty much yellow but the part toward the camera doesn't look so much so. Didn't really notice it until I'd shot the images.
Sure if ya sent some along I'll photograph them and put them up like these. I'll sent ya a PM with address.
About the impurities, that just happens with my 450 when it runs out of lube and I refill with melted lube. After tow years of use you would think the danged thing would be rid of that balsted black grease stuff Lyman puts im em to test or store or whatever. I am stingy on the dye chips and would not be too sad to leave them out of the recipe.
Gotcher Snakebite .38's packed up and ready fer the post office tomorrow. Thanks to you and the designers and directors for doin' the heavy liftin'! Now if we kin just get the producers to market more o' them molds.....
PRS, now I don't feel so bad, I used up all my yaller dye chips to make up purty sunflower colored prs lube and just came up with honey colored. Tastes jes' fine, thank you very much (the cowboy who complains has ta take over the cookin!) :wink:
Howdy Gang,new guy here,sure would love to see them .38 pics....if theres enough interest in another run,I would like to get a mould from Lee,sounds like just the ticket for my OTs and '66. Any body else shoot the .38's??
Thanks for the welcome,glad to be here!......any of you guys ever modify your mould by welding??..then smoothing out to specs??...got this wacko idea that I can modify the mould by adding alum weld,you know,the stuff they sell at gunshows where the guy welds up an alum can?.....then honing the mould to where I want it to be...anybody try that??......now if I could get an SB mould,I wouldn't have to think of this stuff! :twisted:
