    Lead pot replied to a thread Wipe solder in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Early in my plumbing trades I wiped a lot of water connections and drainage as well as flashings area drain bases and the wiping solder was 40/60 and some had a higher tin count like 95/5 for a lower melt temp for thin like 1/16" sheet lead I never...

    I haven't used any of these bore critters yet but I might try them. Being a Plumber by trade that has used a lot of bib washers and O-rings of all kind I think a leather bib washer might be more effective then a neoprene for the trailing dry wiper...

    I have a couple friends that have been twisting my arm that shoot at Friendship to join them. Now that my Daughter relocated around the Louisville area makes the friendship match a better probability :) Wiping or blowing, both can be effective and...

    gunwonk that paper will work just fine, it's just not my choice for the bullet diameters I use and I don't believe in sizing bullets down more then a thousand or two if I have to. I know a shooter that uses regular printer paper and shoots some very...

    Richard I just looked to see if I still have those bullets and found them. Those are .309" diameter 1.060" long unfired with the gas check on. I don't remember the powder weight but it was 3031 and the alloy I cant say what the mix was but I started...

    No Richard I don't have that information any more I lost a lot of stuff when I left the notebook at the range and it was never turned into the lost and found. I'm not sure but I think that the stretching was caused from pushing a soft lead bullet...

    I was one of those that wimped out. I did not feel like dragging my new cart through the mud. I have a hard enough time just walking the long shooting line during dry conditions. :) Between the Q and the two weeks shooting the fine shoots at the...
