    Fly replied to a thread Surplus Ammo in Military Rifles
    I wondered about that. Maybe Trump will reverse that. I have not bought any surplus in years. I still have some. But I would like to get some brass & reload my own. That's even hard to find at a descent price. ...

    I use only wax for flux in the casting furnace. Sawdust and wax together can stick to the pot below the surface and migrate to the spout as waxy charcoal specks. The cast iron smelting pot gets sawdust and wax until the alloy isclean. If you only...
