    Just as everyone knows the silver content of a 1969 Kennedy 1/2 dollar everyone knows the alloy content of lines of type form of lead. It may be a bit lower on the Sn and Sb than the posted values of 4/12 but not by too much or they wouldn't be...

    I'm thinking hang it above pot and hit it with one of those 50,000 BTU torch wands from Harbor Freight so that it drips and flows right down into the casting pot, arriving pre-warmed and everything. Then take the torch out and kill weeds in the...

    you can either try to work your way up the chain by asking the trucker who hauls it where it goes and who it gets delivered to and so on until you get to someone that can make a deal OR you can find someone near the bottom that has the pull to just...

    Me I thought it was mosquitos when I saw the title. But my wife puts the humming bird feeder up. We like to sit on porch and watch them zip around, they get pretty rowdy trying to drive each other off.

    Ding! Ding! Ding! and we have a winner. The .562 ball goes through about like loading a muzzle loader +/- a bit. As soon as I get a chance to mark a dowel as a depth gage to leave enough hull for crimping I'll be loading a couple of them to test....

    I use file handles, they are about like the wood handle on a mold. Some the ferrule tightens to squeeze down on the tang. My biggest problem is storing files so they don't get banged together. I put them on a piece of cardboard but every so often...

    RogerDat replied to a thread My USPS story. in Our Town
    I had one single clerk in a fairly large post office who really didn't like my boxes of lead. One time she wouldn't take a SFRB because "it had tape all over it". What it had was fiber tape on all folds/corners, and over the label it had clear...

    I use this bullet in the .45 Colt with BP and with SPG lube there is ample lubrication to prevent foul-out in the Marlin Cowboy lever actions. Also very accurate and a good field bullet when cast 1:40 tin-lead

    3 grains of either 231, WST, HP38, or AA#2, or 2.4 grs. of TiteGroup should all work in your LCP with the Lee 95RF.

    If you don't find an available .30 round ball mold check out track of the wolf. They have a 6 cavity .310 round ball Lee mold for a decent price. I picked up one because two pours to do a load seemed better than six pours with a double cavity. ...

    My Lee .562 RB mold is due here Friday. I'm going to want to make at least a few right away to check actual fit. Now where is that fingers crossed smiley? YIPPEEE! It came a day early. :-) At least according to the USPS tracking system.

    Those utility dies for de-priming or Lee trim dies would certainly be a good use for that tray. Also the Lee universal flaring dies. Or the Lyman cut off die for turning 30-06 into 8mm mauser. Come to think of it I DO have a lot of dies that are...
