    Lee Handpress that I gave to my oldest son this year. I told him that I bought it before he was born 20 years ago and he would be able to pass it along to his own son or daughter in a couple of decades also.

    It's no problem to stop emails from such. Just block the address. As far as USPS mail, there is a return address on their mailings. Either fill the return envelope with junk paper and return it, or trash it. Ain't no free lunch, you have to pay...

    I've got about 80 of these 170gr bullets that had been pulled at one time in the past (long, long ago as they were still lubed with Lyman's Black Moly lube and I've never used that lube mix which means I inherited them at one point). That rebated...

    Just ordered 3lbs of Eastwood Powder that were on clearance and with shipping it came at just $31. I should be set for a while. 1lb of Primer Black, I'll probably add that into my gloss black/gloss white mix as it currently looks a great grey...

    Agreed. My friend and two other store co-managers in the area are being replaced by one guy on a regional coverage approach. Walmart just saved 6 figures easily by eliminating those three spots in TN alone.

    Lyman 311359 when checked and lubed usualy weighs out at 123gr in most alloys. Lyman 311410 is a 130gr spirepoint bevel base bullet if you don't want to deal with gaschecks. LEE also sells a 120gr Roundnose gas-check design but I don't have any...

    The sad thing is you may try time after time and suddenly the problem disappears without you knowing why. A little lino (to harden and fill out) added will likely help. Once you get the melt level down in the pot, a good scraping of the pot...

    If your rifle has a standard 1:9 twist rate? 100 yard (or further) plinking with a Lyman 266466 at 140gr or the Lyman 266673 at 150gr should meet your needs. NOE has those same great 6.5mm bullet design molds on hand as well....

    That's a great mold in my 6.5 Grendel AR15. It took me a long time to find one as I believe it is a discontinued model but it shows up occasionally on Ebay. The one I found was in a custom double cavity mold with the second cavity being a 323366...

    That is really neat. I seen a video almost identical showing the casting of a skillet out of aluminum. What are the benefits of bronze vs aluminum vs iron for cooking? Is the only benefit of iron that it adds iron to your food?
