    This is posted on the Los Angeles Silhouette Clubs website. They should be bookmarked on every reloaders and casters computer since they are a wealth of great info such as a maximum pressure chart for ammo. Max Chamber Pressure - SAAMI Specs

    I should have named this post differently than for beginners. I still refer to it and I've been casting for over 40 years.

    Some years ago this was removed from the LASC web site not sure why but I found it on the WayBackMachine archives a while back,it's entitled "Cast Bullets for Beginners and Experts" an some may find it useful. The links and articles under the title all seem to still work.

    If you cast or not there is valuable information that any reloader can use, especially if you are using cast bullets. When I get questions about why a gun leads the barrel or isn't accurate with cast this is the place I sent them.
