    For about the first 6 months of my casting hobby, I dipped the corner of many molds into the melt. The mold never got hot enough, I would be hammering on the sprueplate to break the sprues off, til about the 10th pour or so. At that 6 month mark,...

    You can't go wrong with either S&W or Ruger. "What length barrel should I consider since I walk 3-8 miles per trip ? " I would go with a 4" 29 for carry and a 7.5" SRH for shooting at the range.

    I've never seen nothin like that before. I bet it'd work good in loose sand. I move a lot of firewood with a wheel barrow...a traditional 6 cf is ideal for my use. I have a real old one with a steel wheel that's about 1" works fine if I...

    1/4" Alum will work real well. For my antique Ideal #1 lubesizer, that only has a clamp-on style mount, I only have enough room for 1/8" metal, I use a scrap piece of copper. that thin copper transfers heat just fine.

    My last batch of 9mm range brass that I bought, then processed, then sorted, I found about 100 (out of a box of 3000), that looked like they were reloaded HOT, and probably more than once. I use a Lee 9mm carbide size die, The few of those HOT ones...

    One thing to consider: Boolits, I believe ones containing Antimony, will continue to "grow", as time progresses. Because of this I now size/lube well after casting, and closer to loading and shooting. After chatting with Dougguy about boolit/throat...

    Thanks for the great reviews Guys, I bought one and love it! Question: The main "screw" attached to the handle is dry and needs a little oil/grease. If I lube the threads, would that throw off the readings? Thanks again -

    As a castbooliteer, the 41 holds advantages over the 44. Manufacturers make all the 41 guns to the same/similar specs, but the 44 has it's quirks with separate and different SAAMI specs for Rifle and pistol...add to that, some foreign manufacturers...
