Re: Walking a mile in "their shoes"

You can try adding Lugol’s iodine to your glasses of water. One drop twice a day. You can up it to two twice a day. If your nose runs stop and restart at one drop once a day. See if that doesn’t fix your dry wax issue. J.CROW'S® Lugol's Solution of Iodine 2% 2oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001AEFM9Y/...

I would guess around 750fps and might be concerned about it making it down your 24" tube. If you do try it, take a rod (I use brass 1/4" welding rod--30" long IIRC) and hammer to remove the stuck bullet. IIRC, Clays is around Red Dot/Promo speed.
Yep. It’s a bit faster than red dot.

My 360 Dan Wesson needed .360 bullets for best accuracy. Just shoving a .360” hardcast plain-base bullet into a 357 case with a belled mouth swaged the bullet base down to .357”. I made a plug for my Lyman M die. NOE has the correct plug in stock.
