    I hope you don't get discouraged easily. When I first started casting, before I ordered a Lee bottom pour pot, I tried to cast a few with a Lee ladle and a old used 45 cal 2 cavity Lee mold. I didn't have any success, but I was doing this while...

    I've always used dish washing soap and as hot water I could stand. Usually after 10 or 12 times use.

    Not having the proper tool, that's definitely not what I called them as I kissed my sore finger.

    I thought sure this was going to be instructions on decorating with toilet paper. You know, there is a proper way to throw a roll so it unwinds and hangs on every branch, or at least thats what I'm told. Not that I have any experience.

    pkchwy, welcome to the forum. Judging from your previous posts, I assume you are lube-sizing in a Star. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?360594-M-A-Systems-Collator-for-the-Star-Sizer&p=4365759&highlight=#post4365759 Too much lube...

    Where did this sea of clover come from? My lawn was manicured Friday and again this morning it looks like it snowed. Are aliens sewing it at night?

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread Thank you NOE in Cast Boolits
    You'll like that one, I have cast thousands of boolits with my 5 cavity RCBS clone mold...mine come out a bit heavy using 94-3-3 alloy, and weigh about 60gr with GC installed.

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread Hubris in Cast Boolits
    I suspect the issue could be that the RCBS boolit fits your Rifle's throat better than your NOE copy. You may or may not get the NOE to shoot as good as the RCBS in your rifle. Boolit molds can have slight variance from mold to mold, even from...

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread lawn rolling in Our Town
    To properly solve your problem, you need to find the cause. For instance, my Lawn/garden has a lot of night crawlers...large night crawlers. They make my lawn bumpy. It isn't that noticeable until we get a dry spell, which isn't that often in...
