    I have a friend that shoots handguns at 7 yards. I asked him why once and in a nutshell he told me because that's the most common distance of a self defense shooting. At 7 yards he does groups about 3-4" in size. We moved back to 15 yards and his...

    I hope your friend can get a refund. I browse Ebay pretty often and I hardly ever see any lead, solder or Pewter at reasonable prices. And when I do see a reasonable price the shipping is usually jacked up.

    The buck 110, and the 110lt are made in the USA. They make another 110, slim I think is the model. It has a pocket clip and thumb studs. Not sure where it's made. I generall carry a 110 every day, although mine is new production and not...

    I bought one last year, after the excitement wore off, I was disappointed. With it locked open, the blade had play at the lock bar if pushed on the spine. It had a lot of play, more than my 426 with current replacement blade, so I returned it. ...

    Pewter is hard to find around here. Unless you want to pay more than collectors prices for some nice stuff. I'm fairly envious of the guys that make regular pewter scores.

    The alloy that you are using for 38's should work fine in your 357's.

    Thank you everyone for all the replies. I've given this a lot of thought and research, but I've not taken game with cast yet, and nothing larger than deer yet. I went into this thread thinking that the answer to the first question, was that...

    I probably would hang the base from an "I" beam in my shop, put a container under it and heat it with a weed burner. Be very careful! My method has the potential for some of the lead to trickle out and then release the whole chunk.

    What are the advantages, if any, to using jacketed bullets as opposed to cast,against larger than deer sized game in slower cartridges such as the 30/30? They would gain little if any in velocity, what about penetration? For conversation...

    I guess I'll be the one thats different but I primed many a case on my Rockchucker before I started hand priming. And I got good results! It doesn't take much to develop a feel for it. I actually started hand priming so I could do it in the family...

    I carried a 642 a while and I had a fobus holster that I used a spell. Obviously it didn't conceal well, but worked well for round the farm.

    The 642 I had, shot point of aim with 125 grain +p ammo, it shot a little high with regular pressure ammo. It kicked a fair piece with either really. I got to where I could hit a 6" plate at 25 yards and my 2/3 IPSC at 50. It shot a little to...

    Like the others have said, it could be just about anything. There is not a standard that has to be followed so they are usually cast from whatever is available. I would suggest converting it into batches as large as you can handle and have a few...

    All chemicals have the potential to be dangerous. You should follow the directions. Use rubber gloves when handling them, avoid contact with them, avoid breathing them. Like another poster said, common sense. I live in farming country. I have...
