    I got one of John's 20 oz cups a month or so ago. After asking him some questions about dishwasher safe, he suggested that I experiment with that, and report back. Well, I am reporting back, and will tell you that they are TOP RACK dishwasher...

    I spent quite a bit of time trying to come up with a better way to install gas checks. My initial installation was with a Lyman 450 Lubricizer. I found that if I set the sizing die just right, I could drop a gas check right on top of the push...

    As a further followup to this discussion, I'd point out that increasing the gas check raw material only works up to the point where the gap between the punch and the die equal the material thickness. After that, you are just extruding the gas check...

    My apologies to all. My mailbox was overloaded. Brass Magnet just called me on the phone, begging to be the first to post a PM on items. So, technically, he's the first to complete the process. He gets items: 4,9,10, and 12. These will fit in a...

    Time to part with a number of molds that are surplus to my needs. Batch number 1 is a set of Dixie Molds. These include round ball, and a few pistol boolits. There is also a core mold in the batch. Round Ball (RB) sizes vary from tiny to medium. I...

    My answers to several of the questions posed: A) Lee molds are on the low end of the quality landscape. They are often misaligned (hold halves don't line up properly, giving issues like out of round boolits, boolits that don't release from the...

    Handles are for new casters. J/K My casting buddies have all collected up our mutual ingot molds, and we have quite a collection of them that we use when doing a major smelting session (typically 1200 pounds and more.) NONE of them have...

    I have traded 22 LR brass that has been derimmed, annealed, and SS pin tumbled (ALL the work has been done, ready for stuffing) for 5.7 X 28 FN cases in the raw condition. Still willing to do more of that trade if anyone has 5.7's available.

    First time I heard anything from the cranky old wife, out she went! J/K. There were actually other issues that prevented us from completing the 24th year of marriage. Now, swaging, casting, reloading, shooting, and repeating all the...

    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread 3D Printing Sabots in Swaging

    Some time ago, I purchased some plastic ski industry plugs, and tried to use them in pistol bullets. FAIL. Turned out that BT Sniper lead the way with AIRSOFT pellets, with much success. So, I had some of those plugs in inventory, with no ideas...
