    I agree, Charlie. We have so much in this country, but we seem to be in the grip of fear. I can only hope and pray that God will use me to bring hope to others. Wayne

    WRideout replied to a thread Bench issues / ideas in Cast Boolits
    I had exactly the same thought; here is my setup with somewhat QD mounting for tools. I have a number of tools that I wanted the flexibility to move them, and also keep the benchtop somewhat clear for working on things. When I...

    I just rolled up half a box of JHPs in the 45, using the sizing die. They plunk test just fine; next thing is to shoot them. Wayne

    WRideout replied to a thread Just thoughts in Our Chapel
    I used to be a reserve officer, and middle manager, and did some things I thought were important at the time. Now that I am semi-retired, I spend a lot of time with the grandchildren, especially Lilly, the six year-old, who needs a lot of help and...

    BTW: If anybody wants to buy small quantities of acetone to use, plain nail polish remover is just acetone. I guess you could use the oily stuff too, and it wouldn't hurt anything. Wayne

    Well, that explains everything. It's weird, though. I've been running my reloads through the Star PD 45, and most of the time, they work fine. I guess the Star has a generous throat. Thanks, guys. Wayne PS: If that set of dies predates my...

    I acquired a used set of Pacific reloading dies for 45 ACP from a member here. Like usual, I used the die with the decapper to size the empty cases. I found that my boolits had to be considerably over size or they would slip in the case. There...

    WRideout replied to a thread Modified Ed's Red in Cast Boolits
    I had some lamp oil on hand, so I used that too. Different subject, when I worked in the crime lab, we used to keep acetone in plastic wash bottles. Acetone has a very high vapor pressure, so if we left the wash bottle closed up overnight, it...
