    I count cost per round based on powder, bullet, and primer. I sometimes will count brass when I figure what its costing me per box, based one about the number of loads I expect on each piece. I do not count equipment at all though. First, i...

    I never considered how it would hold up to inclimate weather. Still be pretty I bet though. Wonder how something like beaver or mink skin would hold up to water?

    I chose the 44 magnum. Mostly, because its big enough in a rifle, but also chambered in pistols. I know, you could get a 45-70 pistol... but why? And there isnt as many options available for a 454 chambered rifle... so 44 magnum is the optimum...

    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...

    When asking for or reading of others load data, don't use the info unless you can verify it in the manuals. Many think their memory is good enough to be accepted as fact, but it just isn't so. The misplacing of a decimal point or reversing of...

    In 1960 I worked in a Chevy parts department. Does anyone else recognize the PN 1931988? Funny how some numbers are so ingrained in your memory, while others escape you, no matter how important. I have my family's (4) SS numbers and birthdates...

    mold maker replied to a thread Coolers? in Our Town
    The secret to success with any cooler (cheap or expensive) is to have everything pre-cooled before putting it in the cooler. It's not a refrigerator and depends on the ice to hold everything at the temp you like. I have always used the extra thick...

    Thanks for the replies all. I do not have much interest in using pistol bullets for the caliber. I will mostly be using cast in the gun, But I do want to be able to use jacketed sometimes for hunting.

    A 9mm from the LEO range did the same thing for me. This was after I had run the dirty scrap in a cement mixer and inspected them on the driveway. I couldn't retreat fast enough and the molten lead stuck to my safety glasses and left distortions. ...

    Too many dealers with too much unpriced stuff, of questionable origins. I'm not cheap. Frugal is a more descriptive word. I like to at least feel like it was an equitable trade whether money was involved or not. Most dealers don't/won't even deal...

    The burn hazard to plumbers is part of the reason those furnace/pots were obsoleted. They are now old and even less safe, because of rust and age. Granted there are some in use today in our hobby, but there are safer ways to accomplish the same...
