    Soooooo my 9.3 rimmed dies, 286 gr Barnes TSX’s, and the factory crimp die showed up. I ordered the big benchtop RCBS primer tool, some more 270 TTXS’s, and a few other things. Plan on getting the Hornady powder gizmo next. Now to just get the f’n shop finished so maybe I can get my reloading room put together one of these years.

    Ahhh, another question for those in the know. I collect WWI and WWII rifles. I have a 1915 Lebel in 8x50 Lebel. My problem is the 8MM Lebel is designed to shoot a .327 bullet. All I can find is the .323’s designed for 8mm Mauser. Can a fella shoot the 323’s in it? I have some factory S&B Lebel so I will have plenty of brass but.... the bullet dilemma has me perplexed

    You will have a hard time filling the bore with the .323’s. God knows you aren’t hurting in the hunting rifle category, so why not shoot cast boolits in it? Cheap to shoot, accurate and a hell of a lot of fun because you can shoot those odd balls more often! Let me know if it interests you and I will send you the contact to my boolit guy in MT. He will cast whatever you need. Just got a bunch of 600 grain .505 gas checked boolits from him.

    Will probably have a tough time getting meaningful neck tension on bullets that are 4 thou undersized?

    Ok folks, we have an answer and a winner.

    The delta on velocity was......old powder was 131 fps higher!

    Old powder = less moisture = more bang stuff per grain of charge weight.

    Our winner is @Rolf_T

    Send me your address and I will send you your Rhino!

    Thanks for playing!

    FYI - the average guess was a delta of 34 fps!

    In all seriousness, were you surprised the old stuff was that much hotter?

    I had the old stuff being hotter but I was right around the average as o recall.

    Yes, I was surprised it was that much different. I was thinking 50 fps max

    I was also surprised to find out that Rolf_T is in Norway! I wonder what the postal fee is going to be to get the Rhino to Norway! :)

    Unfortunately I still haven’t had time to unpack all of that and set it up I did however get in my 577-450 Martini Henry dies and some 24 ga brass to form the cases out of.
