    Used them for years without problems, until they switched to non-nickel plating in the early 2,000's. Then about 1 in 100 needed 2 hits to go off. The next 5,000 and everyone since has worked just Great.

    I became curious about Teaspoons, I went to our drawer with cutlery. There was about 40 teaspoons in tray. I took them out and examined them Out of the range we had, I found 6 teaspoons with different sizes and different shapes and capacity....

    =45acp Can I suggest, you try and get a copy of HI-TEK coating instructions before you dive in. HI-TEK is nothing like Powder coating. The only similarity between Powder coating and HI-TEK, is that they are both powders. That is where any...

    Walks replied to a thread Lee Mould Handles in Casting Equipment
    I modified an RCBS set of handles for My OLD 2cav Lachmiller molds. I also modified a Lee set last year. I think I prefer RCBS handles over all others.

    Of course there are times when you do catch a deal. Sold my last H&G about 10yrs ago. It was a 10cav #50 with handles. Bought it for $40 at a gun show in 1979. Just hadn't cast a 38 wadcutter in the 20yrs before that. Made $100. And some folks...

    1cav - $35 2cav - $50 4cav - $70 Then it depends on MANY factors. How bad do I want the mold ? Condition of the Mold ? Has it been abused ? Does it have rust on it ? Rust scars ? Any strange screws ? Do I have handles to fit it ? Do I...

    I grew up on it. My Dad loaded it in just about every cast bullet load with the exception of His Bullseye Competition Loads and Hot .357Mag & .44Mag loads. And that is a lot of .380, .38Spl, .44Spl , .45Colt, .45ACP Hardball. And a bunch of rifle...

    Wouldn't that be .327 Fed Mag. And It's a light cartridge. If you're going to put it in a heavy rifle, you might as well go with a bigger cartridge. I think the 1st batch of 1894CL's in .32-20 were Great Guns. Wish I still had mine. And...

    Ah, that makes sense. So in theory, something like old gold that Petander uses is not as susceptible due to being a yellow already, but of course, if you bake the poop out of it, it will get darker with the yellow to tan colour of the over cooked...
