    mold maker replied to a thread Bullets in a fire in Our Town
    It's the difference of being hit with a 1# anvil or a 1# pillow. One can kill ya and the other get your attention. In a cook-off, the lighter weight piece is the one propelled. The density difference between a boolit and an empty case is huge,...

    mold maker replied to a thread Digging out in Our Town
    My parents also survived the depression by being thrifty. Nothing that could have a later use or repurpose was wasted. I am left with their collection and the trait that I inherited from them. While right at the moment we are in a much better...

    Typical. Lawyers and bean counters found profit and earned their pay at your expense. Keep after them and document who and when you spoke. No guarantee but only the squealing wheel will get greased. I've had a similer problem with WalMart...

    Joe using fireworks powder is a terrible idea. If you do not know what kind of powder your using you may end up blowing your gun a part. Flash powder is used a lot in fireworks. Flash powder is very powerful & will blow a black powder fire arm...

    Most of those rocket jockeys think there "portant people". Along with loud mufflers, they are making sure you look to see who they are. The ones that make my day are the little old blue-haired ladies that are looking through the steering wheel...

    Applying that kind of heat directly to lead is a guaranteed way to send lead oxides and vaporized lead into the air we breathe. While it's fast and it works, it's not recomended. As casters we want too live long ehough to shoot the lead we melt.

    Typical bean counter screwup. It worked out for pure profit on paper, and in a bean counters head that's all that counts.

    Reloading needs only a trip downstairs. The range requires loading the car and a trip that leaves Granny by her self. At our age, the buddy system is safety for both of us, so I have an increasing supply of loaded ammo.
