    mold maker replied to a thread Ukraine ammo dump fire in Our Town
    While we couldn't decern 762-39 among the explosions, there were some really big stuff going boom. The surplus market will feel the results for only some of it.

    While looking for a specific item, I found them by mistake. Some mistakes are great. They really deserve praise for CS and quick shipments.

    During times of peak demand, the scrappers pay more for lower quality material. Regardless of how good we think our process is, we still have lots of lead involved in our outcast jackets. They used to overlook that fact when copper brought $4.00...

    Just new bean counters flexing their job titles. Shows the boss they can be lean and mean as opposed to fat and happy, so they think. Every Co that goes to new ownership sees it happen. It's not always good for the bottom line, but that is...

    mold maker replied to a thread Your battle rifle in Our Town
    If it's not RTG and you're not rectifying that, what do you own it for? If you don't have ammo on hand, why not? We aren't collectors of junk or a parts dept. I understand we all have projects, and stuff happens, but If we have it, Why not be...

    When a lifetime warranty is mentioned, I just giggle. Heck, I don't even look at the expiration dates except as a wish.

    waksupi replied to a thread Musket debut in Muzzleloading.
    That definitely isn't a Lott that North Star made. All North Star locks have always been made in-house. No idea of the maker. The flint is pointed too high, needs to be pointing at the pan. If a flint needs back further in any gun, I cut a...

    Kinda compulsive a hobby, isn't it? Finding lead is an even greater challenge because it isn't concentrated in one spot. I find WW at 1 out of 10 intersections, and batteries only have 2 posts. Dentists don't use old X-rays anymore, and many...

    Because I can, I always deprime and citric acid-wash w/SS pins all brass. It's easier to inspect and gets rid of the flash hole debris. I once seriously scratched a die trying to size first, but only did it once. Trying to save a little time...

    I spend lots more time looking than using. Finding and admiring things you come across while searching is what takes most of the time.

    My Dad was a cabinet maker among other things. At a very young age, my job was to hang doors, and the Yankey was how it was done. I still have 2 of the original Yankees and a shorter knock off. In this day of battery powered tools, the old...

    Does the flint point at the center of the pan when in fired position? I'm thinking your frizzen may need hardened. That's a lot of wear for just a few shots.

    I got that news over 19 years ago and it is live changing. Three times since then and every time it's special. Now get busy and stock up supplies for your new shooter. This is the beginning of the rest of your life.

    If you spend as much time grooming it after it is wet as a mink or beaver does, it should be just fine. I will say, make it and take it to a shoot, you will immediately be branded as a flat land pilgrim. Wait a minute. Black polyester thread?...

    Stick with .45-70. To see why, price the .45 Basic brass for a .45-100.

    If ya ever have to move it in a HURRY, you'll quickly change your mind about how much is too much. No matter whether it is in buckets, crates, boxes, or sacks, they're too darn heavy. One trip I had so much on the very back of the truck that I...

    I spent over 30 years chasing the best alloy and found they all sorta worked. Back then there was no internet or forum and I didn't know another caster. Little was written in my world about bullet fit, and lube was either something you bought or a...
