    I wonder how much spring-back there is with those FMJ? You might want a undersized 30 cal sizer die...maybe .307? I'd use a swaging lube, like Lanolin thinned with s bit of neatsfoot oil.

    Back in the summer of 2016, when I thought there was a good chance that Trump might lose to her (who will not be named). 22LR was still somewhat high priced, but I pulled the trigger on a case (5000) and haven't looked back...my 22LR habits have...

    If your application would lend toward a motor over heating, if sure would make sense to connect the purple wires as lightman states, so the overloads are in series with the switch.

    One productive Saturday afternoon/evening, I piled up about 2000 from a NOE 5 cavity mold (358-128-SWC). I did take a break for dinner...so I guess it was more like two sessions back-to-back...but all in one day. BTW, the week following that...

    The Last cast Iron thread got me to thinking that I should be looking for a nice vintage #8 to add to my collection. Mostly I cook with a #9 Griswold and find it a tad large sometimes. I found a older Wagner at one antique store for $17. The...

    So what's the best? I wish we could get some old Gillette Super blues, they were the first blades I could get a complete shave from. I would gladly shift to an old double-edge razor (I have one) if I could get good blades for my rough beard...
