    waksupi replied to a thread case sizing lube in Cast Boolits
    I dump the cases in a container, get a few drops of Ballistol on my fingers, and run my fingers through the container. Does a good job of lubing. For necks, I have a small container of moly, and dip about every third case mouth in it. That leaves...

    My possibles bag is made from blanket material. All my shooting bags are leather. The Metis and Ute did wool shooting bags, and there are examples from a few other tribes. Whites generally used a bark tanned leather.

    I stayed at some friends hacienda a couple blocks off of Canyon Road for a few weeks. I didn't even know there was a "new" part of town until I was nearly ready to leave. I did find one interesting place, I think it is called Jackalope. I remember...

    I've had the same experience. When a business advertises as Christian owned and operated, I've learned to not do business there, because sure as shooting, they will try to screw the customer.

    At the last count I was near 50 molds. Very few SC, a ton of DC and quite a few multi cavity Mihec creations.. The guality of his molds is just so much higher than the competition it is a joke to compare them. Yes the brass molds weigh a ton but...

    That wouldn't be a bad idea. It appears half of the threads were removed, leaving little for that vent to hang on to.

    My revolver and rifle prefer different loads. You can shoot the same load in both, but working up what works best for each gun is the best route.

    That's a gawdawful countersink he cut for the vent liner. You get what you pay for! The general opinion of most other builders is, Jackie can take $700 worth of parts, and make you a fine $300 gun.

    We've got a lot of griz and black bear activity here, too. Friend wants me to go shoot one out of his apple trees. Problem is, they only come at night, and I don't need the hassle of accidentally killing a griz.

    If the finish is completely cured, you will leave no steel wool particles in the finish. I finished a lot of very expensive exhibition grade stocks with steel wool where such a blemish would be disaster. Never a problem.

    I use some Bullplate Lube on the mold. Careful application with a Q tip. Keep it out of the cavity. I think synthetic chainsaw 2 cycle oil is the same thing.

    If you didn't start out with well seasoned wood to make a stock, you may as well figure on starting over. An uncured stock will warp, twist, and do all kinds of nasty things if you expect the rifle to group. If you used Truoil too heavily, it...

    Advertising in the magazines is not cheap. Probably several thousand a month for a big ad. With the internet, lots cheaper to spread the ads around there.
