    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread Swage lube in Swaging
    I buy my anhydrous Lanolin from Randy Rat, here on the forum. I mix 80% lanolin with 20% Militec 1 synthetic oil. I put em both in a small jar, and have made a small mixing propeller from a wirecoat hanger. I mix until the lanolin looks a bit more...

    I'll take those, please. I'm still out of town, so if it's OK, I will get payment to you by next Tuesday. If you will take PayPal, I can send payment immediately. Please advise. Hi Ron, sorry, I have first dibs this time. ;)

    Thanks all, I am still on the hunt for reloadable brass. I think I want a couple hundred, somehow. I have read up on the various ways to remake other brass into 6.5 Jap, but it all seems tedious. Will try to find brass with proper headstamps.

    An elderly friend gifted me his war trophy Type 38 Japanese Arisaka. It was given to him as he left Hiroshima, being part of the first boots on the ground there after the bomb. The rifle is complete with a non-numbers matching original bayonet and...

    I had buddies send me pictures of my home. The power is on, and no obvious damage. The only thing out of sorts is that my banana plant, with the bananas growing on it, got broken in half. Yes, we have no bananas. So, will be staying in New...

    Yes. My oncologist is the head of oncology there. I could not ask for better medical service. Hope it's still all there when I get back.

    I'll start it off. I left Port Orange (just South of Daytona) at 08:30 Thursday AM, and drove up to my son's home in Peabody, MA. I was going to come up in October for his birthday, but the hurricane gave me reason to make the trip early. Traffic...

    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread .308 from 5.7 cases in Swaging
    Heavy bullets don't only translate into round nose. PeeWee and I are making 150 grain and 168 grain bullets by merely adjusting the weight of the lead cores. I could easily make 180 or 200 grain bullets with the same dies in .308" diameter by...
