    More bean counters saving money letting you finish the mfg job. Expect it to get worse. How long before they start shipping kits for us to assemble, or maybe just the maching prints?

    I've always equated the term elasticity of a boolit alloy with "spring back" when a boolit is sized, and not necessarily the malleability or toughness. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?68121-Did-some-experiments-on-sizer-size Some...

    Luckily for me, all my new MP molds arrived in a week to 10 days. I've read other members experienced waiting up to 4 weeks if it was heldback at customs.

    I just finished writing the check for my two yards. This time of year sometimes it's 3 times in 2 weeks. We've had 2 days in the last 12 without rain, and the grass loves it. Rain doesn't get rid of the airborne pollen either, my nose proves that.

    That's also the source of the brass chips many blame on SS pin tumbling. Until I started wet tumbling I religiously used a flash hole de-burr bit.

    An extreme test for this is to put a bit of lube (a chunk the size of a boolit) on a paper towel, then set it on the dash of a closed up car on a sunny day. Look and feel if any oil migrates to the towel.

    I have no idea what brand it is, but I have seen this in pulled down 'pre' WW II 7.65 Argentine. Like '36, '37, '38 head stamp brass. I do remember it was chunked together. Don't know if this will help or not.
