    Lead pot replied to a thread Ladle weirdness in Casting Equipment
    I have never seen yellow dross on the ladle or top of the alloy but Gray dross is pretty common. You don't want that to get pored into the mould to cause an unbalanced bullet. Here is what you can do to keep the spigot of the ladle clean even if...

    I'm, not sure what the wood is. It has a Oak type grain but I thought it looked nice in the Catalog :) In my eyes the black stocks will never replace good wood. I have only one rifle in my safes that has a composition stock and that is a 700 Rem...

    Don't get me wrong, I liked the .220 but I did have the pressure problem with having to slap the bolt sometimes. I replaced it with the .22 Varminter I build a year before joining up in the service on a Czech VZ 24 98 Mauser action it has shot many...

    There will always be disagreements and I been doing it for many years comments on this subject. I don't know what the load combinations were except they were reduced loads. One rifle was a Win 64 in a .30-30 caliber and the other was a Ruger all...

    A light load with the double base powder is just as dangerous as an over load. A light load has a good chance getting flashover from the hot primer igniting the whole load instead of a progressive burn load. I have seen two rifles that fragmented...

    A .220 Swift is even worse for pressure spikes necking down .270 brass I used before the .25-06 was a factory load. Makes for sticky bolts if you don't trim the necks.

    That little saw will be the best investment you will ever make cutting down cases. I also use it for cutting copper tubing for making jackets for swaging. The saw is a little tight for working with it if you have big fingers :) but it's a fine...

    I have a couple tapered bullet moulds and one is from Tom Ballard. I like to shoot without fouling control and with the tapered bullets I can do this. Also my tapered bullets are made for the more or less standard chambers now used that have the...

    I run two tumblers and one has the mix of the pins and ceramic. I started this when I came back home after two months on the road out your way and Montana shooting matches. I normally don't clean the cases till I get back home. I take 2000 rounds in...

    I use a mix of SST and Ceramic in my Tumblers Tumbler mainly to get the primer pockets cleaner.

    Wayne, I use Cascade and SST pins and my cases come out very clean and bright. I don't see a problem with peening and I use a Tumblers Tumbler as well as the Frankfort Arsenal tumbler that turned faster than the tumblers tumbler and it does not...

    Since your shooting a TD you are most likely doing it from the muzzle down. Turn the rifle down, trap door down to keep the water from dropping down into the lower parts. You can use a muzzle guide to keep the cleaning rod off the crown and push a...

    This post got my curiosity. I'm a fan of the S&W and I never heard of the .32-44 caliber. I did some searching and found a little on this cartridge. The original .32-44 ammo. has the bullet loaded in the case flush with the nose of the bullet even...
