    I used to go to a bagel shop next to a starpucks. I piggybacked off their Wi-Fi, no problem. Unfortunately they closed. Now I go to Coffee Bean, don't know what their Corp policy is on 2A. But That Store Mgr shoots at the same indoor range as...

    Tazza, try a company called REDOX Chemicals, their Acetone is in 44's but is much cheaper. It is worth the investment.

    Hi Slide, Apology for slow response. I am not surprised at the results you obtained with the substitute. I have said previously that MEK and Acetone both work equally. MEK stinks more and not so good to people, less available and much more...

    Remember that Guanantees from both only cover two years because of the electronics. I have the old pots from both. But when one does die, I will buy a new RCBS pot. Even though the display is on the side. RCBS still has the BEST CUSTOMER...

    When I was a kid in the early 1960's, we used to go out to Arizona to visit an old Shipmate of My Dad's. He had an old Thompson M1 Submachine gun. We would bring out a couple thousand rounds of .45ACP loaded to max with 225gr RN from a H&G 8cav...

    Depends on how sharp the nose is ? I know of two (personally) blown up lever guns that had detonations in the mag tubes from round nose bullets. Back in the day (20yrs ago+) When I had time to cast bullets for my 2Kids Cowboy guns, I used 2...

    Looks like you applied TOO much crimp. Is your case way too long. What Mold does that bullet drop from ? Doesn't quite look like a #452374. Is it from a Lee mold? Almost looks like it was sized from the bottom in a Lube-Sizer, from a too big...
