    When I see that it's me calling me I'm very curious what it is that I want but I never leave me a message, I just keep calling me which leaves me even more curious what it is that I want to talk about. Maybe before the next time I call me I could...

    I've heard of but don't really know that there is a device that plays the fax number screeching sounds when you pick up. Makes the computer generated calls think it's a fax number not a voice line and they remove your number from their list. If...

    In addition to expiring & needing to be renewed the do not call list is a federal plan and does not effect calls from within your state. Rick

    Welcome to CastBoolits Durwood, Sounds much like boolit lube build up on the cylinder base pin. Gets gummy after a while, I rarely clean my match revolver bores but the cylinder gets removed and cleaned (and lubed) after every firing. Keep the...

    cbrick replied to a thread Common Core in Our Town
    The class of 61 or it's percentage of graduates mean nothing. See post #78. Kids in the 60's and before were getting a solid education but that started to change in a big way in the 70's as liberals gained control of school boards and the feds began...

    Quite incorrect to say . . . "the education level in this country has been increasing". No it hasn't, it is steadily and rapidly decreasing. The number of or percentage of graduates from high school means nothing if they haven't been taught...

    To an Extent that's true but consider that after 12 years of public school indoctrination those "higher educated" folks have simply gone on to a higher level of and a more intensive indoctrination. Through it all there has been precious little...

    Not quite accurate. Uneducated people vote democratic. There is a difference. The level of education in this country has been declining for over 30 years on an ever increasing scale based on the ever increasing death grip of the federal government...

    That is a pre-Redding mold. The gas check shank looks quite small, have you tried to put a 45 cal check on it? You didn't say what your planning to use this boolit in but if it's intended for the 45 ACP and it were mine I would take captaint's...

    Just today at Wal-Mart, I bought 3 cases of dog food. That's all it took to have the checkout line backed up an extra 10 minutes, 12 cans in a case plus I had 3 coupons for $1.00 off each 8 cans. A young lady in her late teens or early 20's and it...

    What your seeing is tin oxidation, the sawdust will return this to the melt, don't scrape it off. Using both sawdust and wax hurts nothing, a bit redundant since your already using sawdust. Welcome to CastBoolits Leon, :mrgreen: Rick

    Now you change your mind and Glen has it wrong too. Whatever, if I should ever go to work at Los Alamos National Laboratory I'll be sure to use your terminology. As a bullet caster I'll use terms that (all but one) bullet casters understand. Rick

    Nope, you can define fluxing any way you wish, I'm discussing what a flux does, what we want it to do and which of the common "fluxes" do this. 100 years ago? Really? Nothing been learned since then huh? To a bullet caster with bullet casting alloy...
