    waksupi replied to a thread Oxidized cast boolets in Cast Boolits
    When you cast, and want your bullets to stay shiny, put them in a can of soapy water. Dump them out, and let dry. The soap film makes a barrier, and they won't oxidize.

    waksupi replied to a thread Computer video download in Our Town
    I repeat, Chromebook 14 will not support video download from SD cards. This platform runs off of apps and cloud. There has been no program developed for handling video downloads from a camera card. Looking for an alternative computer, not a work...

    Nope, that doesn't work. I've been working on this for two months, and it can't be done, according to tech webpages.

    I already checked, the Chromebook 14 doesn't support this, with no time line for having one available. I'm leaning real strongly towards a Dell Inspiron 15 3000.

    I have a question for you. What do you run for a computer? I got a Chromebook 14 recently, and can't download video to it from my sd card. So, I'm stuck with going to the library and using their antique windows machine, that takes forever to...

    Sharon Barrels did testing many years ago on over loads in their barrels. Heaviest charge was 1400 gr. powder, with 14 patched round balls over that. No failure. The only damage they were able to do on barrels was by separating the ball from the...

    They aren't hard to do, but are not a fail safe. I had one rifle with double cross bolts, that still split. A good idea with a heavy recoil rifle, though.

    No pissing match here either. I always look for accuracy FIRST in any load, cast loads in the 35 Whelen are 300 yard max for me, and that would be stretching it. I was just giving a suggestion to look for accuracy first, the other banter was someone...

    I wonder what happens with the modern substitute powders? I have no knowledge of the detonation rate of that fake powder. I guess if you overload one, you will be notified by parts of the gun leaving the area at high velocity.

    A question for the metallurgists in the group. Forging steel with a coal forge adds carbon content to the steel as it is forged. Would the same happen with a propane forge? If it does indeed add carbon to metal by forging, would wrought iron be...

    It certainly isn't ideal, however I have had several barrels over the years with very rough grooves. They shot very well, although there was the expected fouling build up.

    Dean, I have always figured a .30 bore starts at 180 gr., and goes up from there. I think a 200-220 gr. bullet is probably optimum.
