    Lead has in the past been available everywhere, but plastics and health scares have fixed that. Wheel weights, plumbing, roofing scrap etc are fast becoming a thing we read about, but can't find. If ya find some even at an exorbitant price, it may...

    Why would you use a check or a big bill to buy a stamp? That's what banks are for. Besides you can buy stamps at groceries and even at some banks. You can even buy them from your local USPS carrier.

    Remington put a lot of 10 twist barrels on the 260's. A 10 twist is too slow for 140's and 9 is marginal. I believe the VLS was a 9 twist but should have been 8 twist.

    Pyrodex is far more corrosive than real blackpowder.

    What powder? Real black I would not clean, however, Pyrodex would get cleaned ASAP.

    The 6.5 Creedmoor was introduced in 2008. The 26 Nosler was introduced in 2014. The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed specifically NRA HighPower shooting. It had limited general popularity and it would still have limited popularity had it not be...

    Back when I was shooting Bullseye with a 45ACP I did test different crimps on my cast loads for accuracy. .468" on the 45 worked best for me. If I remember correctly that is about .004 total crimp. I have never tested any of my 9mm.

    USPS MOs are a PITA on both ends. I only use them if no other payment is accepted. PP may be anti-gun, but at least on the buying end it's hassel free. For us that have to make a special trip to the PO it can be a real problem and if it is a...

    Start out with a small batch and write everything down. When you get it all figured out, then make a big batch. Depending on what you are going to use this in, the lanolin may not be needed.. It will give the Paraffin a little stickiness, help the...
