    I have wanted a roller off and on for a very long time. I like the history, I like the looks but I just don't like how they fit me. Some of the original blackpower rollers are in the same strength category as Trapdoor Springfield's. Later and the...

    For me I use the smell test rule for the information I am being given. First time I tried to ship primed brass I was the same BS answers. When I asked how the major mail order supply houses could ship primed brass with no hazmat I would get the...

    If ya ever have to move it in a HURRY, you'll quickly change your mind about how much is too much. No matter whether it is in buckets, crates, boxes, or sacks, they're too darn heavy. One trip I had so much on the very back of the truck that I...

    mold maker replied to a thread Next Step in Cast Boolits
    I spent over 30 years chasing the best alloy and found they all sorta worked. Back then there was no internet or forum and I didn't know another caster. Little was written in my world about bullet fit, and lube was either something you bought or a...

    Can't do it through USPS but no hazmat for FedEx or UPS. These regs are still current. Take the regs to the UPS and talk to the supervisor not the front line idiot you spoke too. ...

    Bolt thrust and firing pin size would be my areas of concern. It would be safe on a TC Encore but for others it becomes much more questionable. The sub gauge adapters work very well. The cartridge adapters not so much. ...

    mold maker replied to a thread Reloading section? in Testing Area
    When asking for or reading of others load data, don't use the info unless you can verify it in the manuals. Many think their memory is good enough to be accepted as fact, but it just isn't so. The misplacing of a decimal point or reversing of...

    In 1960 I worked in a Chevy parts department. Does anyone else recognize the PN 1931988? Funny how some numbers are so ingrained in your memory, while others escape you, no matter how important. I have my family's (4) SS numbers and birthdates...

    mold maker replied to a thread Coolers? in Our Town
    The secret to success with any cooler (cheap or expensive) is to have everything pre-cooled before putting it in the cooler. It's not a refrigerator and depends on the ice to hold everything at the temp you like. I have always used the extra thick...

    A 9mm from the LEO range did the same thing for me. This was after I had run the dirty scrap in a cement mixer and inspected them on the driveway. I couldn't retreat fast enough and the molten lead stuck to my safety glasses and left distortions. ...

    Too many dealers with too much unpriced stuff, of questionable origins. I'm not cheap. Frugal is a more descriptive word. I like to at least feel like it was an equitable trade whether money was involved or not. Most dealers don't/won't even deal...
