    I have 2, one in 30-40 Krag using a 2groove barrel and the other in 45/70. I tried to purchase one in 348 a few years back but couldnít pull together the cash on short notice. I still wonder where that one is now.

    Back in June of 2007, I managed to score 1,400 pounds of WW's from a tire shop. I have yet to touch them, just have them tucked away in the corner of the garage. In the past few years, I know the composition of WW's have changed. Zinc, iron,...

    I've not experimented with powder coat in cold weather, but I do know other lubes act different in cold conditions. Loads need worked up for the temperature difference.

    I would melt one down and check the temperature it melts. That should give you a reasonable idea, and maybe cast and weigh a few bullets. I have one that is so hard, I've just used it as a door stop in the shop for years.

    waksupi replied to a thread Elk hunting with 8mm in Cast Boolits
    The 8mm is the incestuous little brother of the .358 win, and is one of the best cast bullet chamberings for North American hunting. I like the 220-230 weight. Drop me a pm to remind me, I may have a heavy mold I could part with.

    Nice. Many of the high quality horns were made by black craftsmen.

    waksupi replied to a thread Size before PC in Cast Boolits
    I install gas checks and size before powder coat, and then may size them again afterwards, depending on the gun. If you are water quenching bullets, they may be harder than you want to run through a lubrisizer if you wait more than a day.

    It took me nearly a year and a half before I realized I don't HAVE to make or do something every day. I can sit and read, go fishing, camping, go visiting, or just poke around the property. I'm getting to like retirement more and more.

    I agree the M70 safety is by far the best. Too bad they have got so darned expensive, I have one more rifle I need to convert.
