    For those on the fence on media separators

    I like 45 Colt and 300 grain Hard Casts, Load?

    What gun are you loading for? You can try 2400. It has a nice pressure curve without getting a big spike with warmer loads. 2400 needs good neck tension and a firm crimp. I would shoot for .003 to .005 neck tension. Have you measured your throats? I would not use too hard a bullet. I...

    Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook, 4th Edition

    I recently got a copy of the Lyman 4th edition also. I too am disappointed with it. Being a big fan of the .45 Colt, the load data was limited. The articles did not help. Save your money and buy Dave Scovill's book, Colt's Single Action Army, Loading and Shooting the Peacemaker. Full of...
