    A couple of years ago I wanted a 7/8 X 14 bolt to seat some flat nose boolits. Went to Fastenal and all they had in that size was 2 bolts grade 9. One was about 4" long and the other about 3' long. As I recall they charged me about $2 each just...

    Just bookmarked this thread. I have a Browning B92 w/1:38" barrel that I got in a real good deal about 15 yrs ago. It came with about 250 rounds of handloaded ammo. I shot one round in a Ruger Bisley and it seemed to be fairly mild, so I shot...

    Thank you for that link. I bought one of those(or at least similar) when Wiljen ran one of the GB's. I use mine more than the others for just around the house mostly. It sure helps these old eyes find small things that I drop. Also good for just...

    Your post reminded me that the copy I got directly from Ken Howell was also numbered(913) and signed. I didn't have the foresight or presence of mind to request something meaningful. The date is 5 December 2000 exactly as he wrote it.

    They could ship one of those 6 cavity molds in a small flat rate box. Might have to remove the sprue plate handle but $15 is too much for shipping. I have a bunch of those GB Lee molds and it got to be a pain to keep them in the original boxes. I...

    You can get an idea from the picture of the mold cavities. For $25, if you find something interesting, how can you go wrong. Of course, if you have to buy handles, that is another story. I've got many handles that fit Lee six cavity molds.
