    I dont clean my bullets before coating. I just don't handle them with bare hands. Cast and dump. Slap on some gloves then handle the cooled bullets. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    My favorites are the Lee reloaded and Lyman cast bullets hand book. I also like a few of the older Lyman Manuals as they have pistol powders. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    Remove as much rust as possible. I don't trust the rust conversion coatings. Then apply a chemical conversion coating to the bare metal. Then a primer. Then a paint. Chemical conversion coating etched the bare metal creating a thin layer of...

    Assault weapons by definition fire more than bullet per trigger pull. Three round burts and full auto. Its funny because in my weapons training we were taught to never use it. Its highly inaccurate and waste full. I guess its ment more for cover...

    There aren't any. What the barrel and action be made of to get this video? That's the problem. The 60,000 to 80,000 psi is a too much for even polycarbonate and that doesn't account for heat. Slow motion video isn't as good as you think either....

    I kind of like the 3 peice design. Then you would just have one base plate. Then gass check and bullet holder plate. Then the whack a mole plate. For the wack mole plate you could taper the holes to make them universal so it sits on the bullets...

    Sorry mate. All I use is the Lee mold you keep missing out on. I used the two cavity one so much I wore the numbers off the blocks and upgraded to the six banger a year ago before all this started. I havent used any other 9mm molds. Good bullet...

    Same. I love sea stories. Passes the times while deployed and at work. Anyways. Back to topic. If a 9mm Luger or 357 Mag is good enough to cleanly and ethically harvest a deer I see no problem with a 30 carbine. You can get much deader than...

    There pretty much isn't a wrong answer when it comes to slugging. You can even just slug the throat and call it a day. That will give you an imprint of the throat and leade, and just the beginning of the riffling. Or just slug the crown end of the...

    I use it. Works great. I just use regular hot water from the tap. Half fill a 5 gal bucket. A teaspoon of lemonshine and a squirt of Dawn. Let it sit for a few hours. Works great. I also deprime before soaking. Then give them a tumble with Nufinish...
