Re: Powder burn temps

I find that LI'L Gun makes my barrels hotter than H110/296 or 4227 in the same cartridge. Yes, some powders do cause the barrel to heat up more. When reloading shotgun shells I do not notice any difference in heat from Universal and Longshot. Longshot gives a little more kick, but the manufacturer p...

Re: Collet dies for levers, yea or nay?

I use the Lee collet die only on firearms where the bullet has no crimp grooves at all. My experience is that a standard crimp is better if you have crimp grooves. I am only using 1 bullet anymore without a crimp groove, and that is in 30-06.
