    My 2 I would think that a thicker GC would be best if installed on a boolit with a smaller GC shank. If you were to size/crimp a thick GC onto a boolit with a GC shank that is the proper size for a proper thickness of GC, then I suspect you...

    I have never noticed any issues with Lead and Lead alloy availability. with that said, Lead is a commodity and is (and always has been) subject to price rise and fall...but for our hobby purposes, those price changes are negligible.

    This reminds me of the troubles I had, when I accepted a cashiers check from the Royal Bank in Scotland...it was the strangest looking paper check, almost no words/writing on it, just a holographic symbol on one side and "Royal Bank in Scotland"...

    I'm in the process of getting solar panels to provide the electricity for my house. I live in the city, but the electric bill is going through the roof. An engineer checked my peek usage, and recommends an 8.7 KW (31 panel) installation. My question...

    It appears I am part of the Lucky few, who live in a small town with a post Office that is rarely crowded with patrons. More than once, I had a MO that was too large for the cash in the drawer, so the clerk just asked the Post Master to get more...

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread arbor press? in Our Town
    I didn't really modify one. Mine is a old used Dake (made in USA) that I got at a scrap iron yard, I cleaned it up and since it came without a Anvil plate, I made a custom Anvil from two 3/8 steel plates, to hold a FCIII gas check die.

    I totally agree. and I'll add, a deformed boolit will still be accurate enough at short range. But once you start shooting past 25 yards the poor accuracy will be obvious.

    I use my Star also for sizing TL'd boolits. Just don't pump the lube, and run 'em through FAST! TL, size, and TL again, and I'm good to go. Also, got a die from a forum member to size rifle boolits to .310.

    A shooting friend of mine retired from the Border Patrol and moved "to the end of a 20-mile dirt road" in central AZ. It's possible - and it's a dry heat (higher country where he moved to, not so much - heat, that is).
