    Lead pot replied to a thread Soy Wax in Boolit Lube !
    I use Soy wax in some of my black powder loads and it works well. Wax for the use in making lube is just a carrier, it holds the concoctions you want to use for a lube. The better the absorption rate the wax has the better the carrier. What you...

    The shooters on to top of the finish line with out coaching or even being coached have the loads worked out and can control their rifle to get the best out of their rifle and load. You can take one rifle and load and let two shooters shoot that...

    Chill you don't sound like a rant, I agree with what you said above. I never have shot at a National match. I like the gong and local and regionals long range and silhouettes. A lot of matches are won by the coaches ability to keep his shooter in...

    Finally it warmed up and the sap is starting. It's about a month later than last year but it's starting. Since last night I collected 8 five gallon buckets full from 9 trees. The three early taps I made I ran the drill bit back in and pulled ice out...

    Lead pot replied to a thread BP fouling in Black Powder Cartridge
    I like the Montana extreme Jags. They are long and a 3" patch just covers them that makes a lot of patch surface in tight contact with the bore.

    Lead pot replied to a thread BP fouling in Black Powder Cartridge
    Good patches are to find even the arsenal patches lately are thin. I go to Walmart and buy 3-4 yards of their 100% cotton flannel and use a roller fabric cutter and fold the flannel in 4 layers and cut them in 2", 2.5" or 3" squares depending or...

    I used to use the RV antifreeze I drain out of the gypsy wagon in the spring it has some water in it but not much because I pull the jug away when the pink turns light. Yes the jugs say it's good for -50 but I found unused jugs in the shed that are...

    If you shoot both Jacketed bullets and cast bullets through a rifle the jacketed bullets will leave copper smears in the bore and this will give you a problem when you switch back to cast. The copper fouling will give you a lead filled bore been...

    Hi John, hope to make it to Ridgeway this year. My tallow is usually white also and hard fat will do this. The round buff bull I made this from I told the processor to save the fat but it turned out most was the soft yellow fat but it took a...

    Lead pot replied to a thread Tallow in Boolit Lube !
    What they are calling Tallow I would say that it's more like lard since it's in a glass jar. Tallow when it's rendered right is hard. Nothing wrong with Beef Tallow if it's rendered with out preservatives. I have made tallow from Beef as well from...

    You need a white ring around the bull. Size of the white ring depends how good your eyes are at the distance of the target. Older eyes need a larger ring of white to better align the black bull and the ring. The same for the rear aperture....

    Depending what type ogive you want, maybe a round nose to take advantage of a soft point you might try using some lead Buck Shot. Making two pours you will never get consistency + or -.Buckshot will lay in the center of the mould making contact on...
