    Got an email this morning that my order had shipped. Pretty fast considering they had to get the FFL.

    I got a letter from Palmetto that my FFL's license was going to expire next month. I had to contact him to send it in. He had already received it but hadn't faxed it to Palmetto. Hopefully, he has done so now. The letter said if they didn't...

    I won't pretend to know how to answer OP's question but I will relate something that I encountered using comparative information. A few years ago I purchased a jug of surplus powder that was supposed to be similar to AA#5. I loaded a few .45ACP...

    The font makes no difference to me. All the lowers that are basically the same really make no sense to me. When looking over all the stripped lowers there were some that stuck out as being too "other worldly" to me. I guess it might make sense if...

    The Palmetto Armory deal showed up tonight and I placed my order for three. Shipping is still $9 each but the FFL only charges $15 total for the transaction, or at least that was what it was when I last used him. When they finally...

    Well! I fooled around until it was out of stock. Guess I will have to wait for the next good deal. Don't plan on doing anything with them right now. Will just put them in the safe and wait until I decide what configuration(s) I want.

    That shipping cost works out to $9 per lower. If I add one to the order it increases the shipping $9. I guess that allows for the low price. Still a good deal just not a flaming good deal.

    I got an estimate of $27 to ship 3 lowers. This still sounds like a good deal. ??

    I keep seeing stripped lowers at low prices. Palmetto State Armory always shows several on their site with different stamping/engraving. Also at different times one or another will be on sale for a very good price. I'm guessing that these are all...

    Rigging things to save your back most definitely helps. When I was doing large melts to ingots, I made a stand sort of like a sawbuck and salvaged some scrap walkway grating from work as a surface to set my ingot molds on. It was sturdy enough and...

    I've got a #1 and a #2 for casting and a #5 for cleaning up WW and other scrap. I have to admit that after awhile the #5 gets awfully heavy. You start wobbling more if you have to take more than 1 or 2 steps to pour into a mold. I admit that I...

    In the latest Handloader Mike Venturino has an article about revolver loads. I'm not going to say too much except that I found several nuggets that I sometimes forget. Sometimes my brain doesn't shift from autoloaders to revolvers so that article...

    I grant you that gauge blocks would be better(easier to use) since they are rectangular but pins are what I have and blocks are not available to me. I don't use the Sherr-Tumico very often since it is harder to use. The ratchet is small and on...

    Not sure I understand this. I use my right hand(arm) to hold the stock of the rifle and my left hand(arm) to hold the barrel. It sounds like you understood that I was using both hands(arms) to hold the barrel and restrained the rifle with a fixed...

    Not sure what you mean. I cock by holding the rifle at the pistol grip with my right hand and the big end of the barrel with my left hand. After I've broken the barrel detent as described by Randy, I just kind of muscle things together to complete...
