    That looks like some good data you've collected in that chart. I'd like to use it to update my alloy calculator someday, if that is ok with you. Would you mind sharing the modified rotometals hardness calculator that you mentioned? Many people...

    I too use the same set of reloading dies (RCBS) to load both the auto rim and the 45 acp. Shellholder is different of course. Revolver is the S&W 45 N frame 1955 Target model.

    The FFL dealers I have talked to here (Missouri) tell me that all smokeless guns with a serial number must go through an FFL in the state the buyer resides in if they are to cross state lines. This is long and short guns alike. This means it is...

    I think that the shooting sticks will help tremendously. I use a tripod for my "off hand" shooting when I can. I find that the more I practice with it, the more accurately I shoot. I can sometimes approach the accuracy I get at the bench when I am...

    I want to post that without a doubt, out of dozens and dozens of transactions here on cast boolits this has been the smoothest and quickest transaction I have ever had. I purchased a set of dies from Ed and he turned the shipment around to me very...

    We just had a Sunday School lesson highlighting Barnabus, whose name means encourager. In this world there are many who make people feel put down. We need to counter act that by encouraging each other, which we do here. It is a great place with some...

    Boaz, thanks for giving us the details so we can more effectively pray for Pastor Jim and his wife, Mary. Their need touches me and I know that Jesus not only knows, but feels their infirmities. He can and will help them in their time of need. Dear...
