  1. A good mold to start on would be the two cavity Lee 358-158 RF. That bullet will be heavy enough to get a better burn with Unique. Use a good solid crimp and Chootem!

     I use both the 125 and 158 grain billets. They feed well in all my rifles once you dial in the OAL. I would save the linotype for other uses. I use range scrap or plain lead. There is no need for a hard alloy to shoot SASS velocities. 
     

    Good Luck!

  2. Before you go replacing firing pins, take it out and shoot it again. If the first barrel fires, but the second doesn’t, it may be coming unlatched and starting to open. This will cause the second barrel not to fire. It’s a common problem with the Stoeger. The answer is to remove material from the sliding latch that moves forward into the barrel lugs. There have been several posts on this issue with good instructions on how to correct it. Do a search, either on here or Google and you will find a bunch of info. 
     

    I have a Stoeger and it was doing the same thing. A little file work and it has not misfired in two years.

  3. I have a Codymatic that I bought used. First 73 that I have owned. I called him with some questions. He said “Stop by”. So I did. He fully stripped it with me watching to see how to do it. He even tweaked it a bit.  We chatted for quite a while.  All with no charge. You betcha!  He’s a nice guy. Highly recommend.

  5. Mine started doing the same thing. Ended up taking a bunch of material off of the top lip of the locking bar to let it travel farther forward into the lugs. It’s been over a year now and have not had any issues.

  6. Dakota,. Appreciate the offer. Wear size large shirts. Boots I'm good on. I am going in for shoulder surgery today, so will be out of shooting for a while. I'll try to show up at a few shoots and spot of something. I'll see you in West Point and we can discuss the .  Thanks again, Sam.
