    Thanks Bro, I didn't intend to break any rules, I just hoarded too many ingots. I can certainty move them, I just thought some one else could use them. Things have changed since I was on here last.

    I gotta do this quick, I'm about to be banned from the forum. I offered up 4 to 5 hundred pounds of fluxed 1lb WW, locally to be picked up by Tues. My add was deleted, it was open ended, whatever the hell that means. I was paying it...

    I've been shooting for a lot of years and a lot of calibers. First let me say the U.S. major brands aren't the same brass cases they were way back. For that matter some of them don't even make their own brass. Okay I've never liked Remington...

    As I stated about more and more newer 38 Super cases are rimless like the 9mm's.

    Back in the early days when Tasco's were made in Japan, for the money, they were tough to beat!!! The new ones are kind of junky. Also in the early days Tasco has a scope mount with rings called the World Class scope mount and it's second to...

    I don't have any 9x23 cases, but I'm sure you know that both the 9mm Luger and 9x23 have a fatter web area then a Super. the Super actually IS a straight case. When I made the 9x23 barrel for my Tokarev I used the 9x23 reamer and shoot only 38...

    Most the 38 Super brass you buy today is the rimless stuff. Starline calls it Comp. I've also bought a lot of once fired 38 Super cases and the mixed brands are Aguila, AA, Sig, Jag, Federal, S&B, and another one that has some A's in the stamp. None...

    I would only recommend ultrasonic for smaller batches. The rotary tumblers w/SS pins for large numbers, and vibrators for light duty. The cons are rinsing, dirty water disposal, and drying with ultrasonic and rotary, lead-laden dust from...

    I take it you are using short lengths of copper wire. Any particular length, or random? Did you cut with side cutters leaving pinched ends? It sounds like something else I'll just simply have to try since I have what it takes. Necessity might be...

    I'm sure you know you should use a 9mm/38super slide for them right? I've done all these years ago. Also you will have to change your 45acp ejector and the 9mm/38super also have a differenc slide stop. I've also done a 9x23 on Tokarev.

    My first rifle (22LR 552 BDL) and shotgun (1100 BDL) were Remingtons but that was late 60s and everything has suffered since then. Glad I still have them since I couldn't afford to replace them. From top of the heap to bankruptcy is a big fall.

    Uberti has said this: "Our '76 is good with any powder/bullet combo that the pressure does not exceed 28,000 CUP." From my research the thing that made Winhester's "toggle link" action weak wasn't the type of systme, but rather the metal back...

    Look at that new 50 caliber muzzler loader that has been out for a short while now and it has a permanent suppressor and it's not a NFA firearm. The ATF could care less about that muzzler loader.

    For sure you don't need 7.0 for pop cans. My load for that would be 3.4 to 4.0 of Bullseye.

    I would suggest using COWW without any tin added and then Heat treat instead of water dropping. Heat treating is more consistent than water dropping and you can achieve a higher BHN. ...
