      I’m actually really liking this software! Little bit of a learning curve, but I’m getting in the groove.
      BTW, I started a section where you guys can make suggestions for improving the place. Please let me know! (helping hands section is duly noted).

      Why doesn’t it surprise me that Ron would suggest that right off. I’m up for that also. Always running across things that people can use.

      Tim, thanks for letting me join. Nice to be on a site with those that think and do rather than those who ask dumb questions !!!
      If you will remember back a couple years ago I posted about reworking a Stevens Favorite but didn’t feel it was actually a strong action in regards to making it a small center fire. Have revamped everything as I really didn’t want to bring it back to a rim fire and am having good results, will be posting more on this and also on a small cylindrical breech block action that is in the works and currently being stocked with a nice piece of Kansas Cherry.

      Glad I found this place. Looking forward to continuing my education in the world of cast bullets. Your thread on consistent casting at the other place was a real eye opener for me. It seems that the most informative people are all here. I usually don’t post much, mostly just read and learn.

      Don’t post a lot, but I have been a gun nut for the last 58 years (started when I was five. Dad gave me a Crackshot which I still have), been reloading for for over 40 years, and started casting three years ago. I started casting because I joined the Cast Boolits site and read enough that it started to seem possible for me. It didn’t take long to figure out that there were some extremely knowledgable people on Cast Boolits, and a few that just liked to watch the post count grow. Now it seems that all of the people that I felt gave me the knowledge to start casting have moved on from Cast Boolits for one reason or another. I am very happy that I have found my favorite two people to follow for gaining knowledge about an activity that I love, Tim and Brad. Now if you two would just get on the same forum again life would be great!!

      Good Afternoon.. I’m glad you let casting rookies join in. I started casting my own about a year ago and I’m sure you guys can learn how “not” to do it from me. 🙂

      Found out about this site from another casting forum. Looks new and looks like I can get in on the ground floor in a new forum. I reload but I do not cast, tho I’ve watched a lot of videos on the subject and find it interesting.

      I’m less than a year into my reloading, and am pretty sure most new guns I buy will be based on whether or not I want to reload for it, so I currently only have two guns on my wish list. Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt. Already have a Marlin 1894 in .45 Colt and it’s a neat cartridge to reload. Wasn’t planning on adding a single action in .45 Colt, but now I think I probably will.

      Marlin 1894 or 1895 in 45/70. Not sure I’ll care too much for the recoil, but won’t know till I actually shoot one, but it is one cartridge I’d like to try my hand at reloading.

      Tim I am glad to have found you again.
      I was hoping you would pop back up, I knew you posted on some other forums, and have followed you to some of them.
      But hosting your own forum is even better.
      Always enjoyed all the information you have shared over the years.
      Was just talking about you with another member just the other day, then found the link to this site.
      Like it was meant to be.

      You already know this better than most, but put together a good team of moderators to help run this place.
      Do not get burnt out on this, it is supposed to be fun.

      Thanks,

      Matt Wehland

      Hello, my name is Ray Strong. I am Forty Rod Ray at other places other sites across the www. I began this in 1954, about then. I have been casting longer than handloading. My first manual was a sheet of lined three ring binder paper that I wrote about half a dozen loads for 270 Winchester. I kept that little scrap of notebook paper until it finally disappeared. I replaced it with Earl Narramore’s great book, then the Lyman 39th handbook. I am happy to report that during that over half century of melting lead and shooting my Dad’s 270, my 1873 Springfield and a few more. I am still learning.. It never ends and never ceases to be interesting and challenging. My Father was not a handloader nor was he especially interested in the science, he was a hunter, and a good one, He was interested in his Browning, his Model 70 and his fishing gear. l learned early on that not all wives and Moms liked the title of “hunters widow”. But they encouraged me in the sport I fell for, shooting. I shot skeet in competition and I learned to shoot the rifle well enough to join what was then a respected university ROTC and collegiate rifle team. I sadly watched it deleted from varsity competition in the early 70’s. Budget and changing times… I still store the old 52-C and my skeet choked Md 12’s with one little Md 42.

      Well, I digress. I am pleased to be among so many men whose writings and experiences have taught me so much about trying to shrink the cluster…. I do miss ol’ Smoke em Joe and Madcaster. Too, I have never made as many friends that I have never laid eyes on…

      Ray

      Glad I found Goodsteel here along with some other informative people from another site. I look forward to educational science based investigations in our wonderful pastime. I have found Goodsteel and Lars45 to be open to thoughtful questions about their experiments while looking for real answers.

      Just found your site on a post from the other site. Probably just lurk for a while to get caught up. Though looks like I can do that pretty fast. Still learning on the casting side but have something to contribute on the reloading side. It will be nice to be a newbie with everyone else.

      Hello Goodsteel!
      I learned of this site from the “other” place. I had been missing your posts as well as others and followed you fellows around the net as much as I was able.
      I read much more than post and have learned much from many of the posters I have seen here. I am happy to have found y’all again in one place. I hope to further my learning adventure in this cast bullet endeavor.

      Still, I see quite a few old hands whom I respect very much. I dare say there is no question you could ask that would stump these guys, and if you do, they’ll all take a seat and learn from your experience. That’s what it’s all about.

      Howdy All!

      I had been off the “other” forum for a while due to family issues and was shocked to see a couple of men I really respected had been banned. With a bit of Google searching and luck I found this site and I see both of those men – as well as many others I have learned from are on this new site.

      I for one would rather have quality than quantity.

      Hi, Everyone.

      I’m the non-artist formerly known as frankenfab.

      I decided to use my real name, since it’s Tim’s forum.

      I hope to do a study on cast in the 458 SOCOM this Spring, both PC and non.

      It was an extremely unfortunate thing, and I never saw it coming, nor earned what I got. Really thought it was all over till I got this started. What can I say? Email sucks! LOL!
      Anyway, welcome aboard! I’m really glad that other peoples bad decisions didn’t stop good people from getting together.

      Sorry it took so long to find you. I see a lot of people whose opinions I respect and value on board already. I was kind of in a funk missing Tim. He has a great perspective on what works and what doesn’t. I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with him on the phone and it was both educational and FUN! So, “Hi” to those that recognize me and for the rest, I hope we get to know one another.

      Thank you for keeping a great thing going. I am still a newbie to casting but I appreciate the knowledge here. Hopefully one day, I can contribute meaningfull content. Until then I will just stick with witty remarks.

      Hi all, I’m a newby here. Hi Tim. I wondered where you went. I was quite surprised when you left the other site. Things aren’t quite the same over there. I see a few names I recognize. I hope I can be of some use over here. I’ve been casting since ’75. But until I found these sites I wasn’t learning a whole lot. I was just making bullets.

      If you guys don’t mind I will stay in the peanut gallery and try to absorb as much as I can. Hopefully I can contribute in some small way! I am truly honored to be among so many mentors.

      Welcome! Contributing here is easy. If you do ANYTHING in this sport, and happen to have your eyes open at the time, simply tell us about it as accurately as you can. You might be surprised! That’s why I post pictures of EVERYTHING. Often other people catch important details that I missed.
      It’s good to see you regardless, and you can hang out any way you want to.

      Thank you for joining up, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I don’t know how we got so lucky, but you’re right. GSF has more than it’s fair share of solid cast bullet shooters.
      Much richer content than what I’m used to.

      I appreciate Goodsteel’s welcome. I am re-entering casting / reloading fora after a hiatus of a couple years, owing to computer problems. I will be out of the country for a year starting in July, but I like to keep my hand it and I will be casting and loading, so I need some contacts. I am a collector: I have guns to show my friends but not my enemies.I also need to update a small inventory of inherited equipment my late father left me. I’ll be in touch.

      I appreciate everyone here on this forum.
      I came here to spend what time I have in peace.
      I don’t like arguing on the internet,especially about politics or religion.

      I have enjoyed being here,and the respect everyone seem to show one another.

      I am also a musician, so I spent some time here and some time on a guitar forum.

      Everyone here seem to have a lot to offer in the way of experience and knowledge.

      Hopefully I can contribute something as well.

      Thanks for allowing me to be part of the group.

      Hello to everyone. I have been lurking a little since I found this form. Decided to go ahead and join what looks to be a good group of people.
      I live in central Arkansas. (Just down the road from Glenn of White Label Lube).
      After spending years reloading jacketed stuff, I stepped out about a year ago and started casting for my pistols and more for my three 35 cal rifles.
      358win I put together on a Savage Model 10 action with. 20″ X-Caliber barrel.
      35rem 1950 Marlin 336SC waffle top.
      356win 1985 Marlin 336ER.

      I hope to pick a few brains, been struggling a little finding a load for my 356win.

      Welcome Ron. Any friend of Glenn’s is a friend if mine.
      As to the 356WCF, the first place I would look is a stout charge of IMR3031 and a RCBS 35-200-FN cast of 50/50 clip on wheel weights and stick on wheel weights.
      Lube with Glenn’s 2500+.
      Size to groove diameter + .001.
      That should put you right where you want to be.

      Ron Mentioned that the 356 has a rather long freebore, so… I was thinking of starting with a chamber cast to see how big and long the freebore is and the size of the neck to see just how big we can size the boolits and still be in the safe zone.
