Thanks, Skipper

I have worked myself up to about 150 rounds of .45-70.

As long as I replace failed cases periodically, I think this may be enough to keep me going.

I bought the Lee .405 mold and have been shooting those bullets.

I have been less than careful as regards hardness but I believe I can keep hardness above 13 consistently now that I am paying closer attention.

That bullet has three wide grooves.

I am going to use beeswax and mutton tallow in one series of rounds and beeswax and Lard in another. I want to compare the performance of these two differently based lubes.
