• So here is an update on my Marlin 336ER.

    First of all I started over with slugs made from a mold using two blocks of wood. This gave me a better surface to measure than the egg shaped fishing weights I was using.

    Turns out my barrel slugged at dead on .358 until the rear sight dovetail, which swagged the slug down to .3577. That is not a lot,…[Read more]

  • I am starting to agree with this. I have not gotten good acurracy from the RD in any
    of my three rifles that take 35cal.

  • This spot is only .002 .357 vs .359.
    I have been able to get very good groups with Jacketed and around 2″ with cast
    Lee clone of the RCBS 200 gr FP.
    Have not been able to get the RanchDog 190 to group well though.
    Hopefully firelapping can help take some or all of it out.

    I plan on getting by your place soon. I appreciate your willingness to help.

  • My 358win has became one of my favorite rifles. Kills deer with authority. I have been shooting the Lee 358-200-RF Air cooled WW with H4895 at 2,100. Took my first cast boolit deer with it last November.
    I put it together on a Savage Model 10 action from a youth rifle and hardwood factory
    stock. The barrel is a 20″ X-Caliber heavy sporter with…[Read more]

    After spending years reloading jacketed stuff, I stepped out about a year ago and started casting for my pistols and…[Read more]
