    I have a small Potters bottom pour pot. I think it was #4. It just has the plug in cord. Never used it and it looks to have never been used. Could a temp control, like the Lee one, be adapted to it?????

    Muzzle loaders and black powder firearms can be shipped to hawaii. But it depends on the post office you go to. Some just don't know, and will not ship it. Last I heard even the ones that use shotgun primers can be shipped. Talked to a guy a...
