    I suspect the buyer cancelled the payment after you shipped. The option is there to do so.

    waksupi replied to a thread Below Zero with Cast in Cast Boolits
    I've not experimented with powder coat in cold weather, but I do know other lubes act different in cold conditions. Loads need worked up for the temperature difference.

    I would melt one down and check the temperature it melts. That should give you a reasonable idea, and maybe cast and weigh a few bullets. I have one that is so hard, I've just used it as a door stop in the shop for years.

    waksupi replied to a thread Elk hunting with 8mm in Cast Boolits
    The 8mm is the incestuous little brother of the .358 win, and is one of the best cast bullet chamberings for North American hunting. I like the 220-230 weight. Drop me a pm to remind me, I may have a heavy mold I could part with.

    waksupi replied to a thread Size before PC in Cast Boolits
    I install gas checks and size before powder coat, and then may size them again afterwards, depending on the gun. If you are water quenching bullets, they may be harder than you want to run through a lubrisizer if you wait more than a day.

    If I by a chuck for this it will be because I want to keep it in my shop in the the end. So precision is good. Currently I think even the Jacobs are all made in China. Any advice on which Chinese chuck you've had good luck with? Most of the cheap...

    This is the picture he sent me. Looks like a four digit number with an "R" stamped after it. Seems like an odd spot for the serial number?

    It took me nearly a year and a half before I realized I don't HAVE to make or do something every day. I can sit and read, go fishing, camping, go visiting, or just poke around the property. I'm getting to like retirement more and more.

    Picture he sent shows four digits on the left side of the tang (under the stock) followed by an R. Same four digits visible on the tang, but no R there.

    I bought one. $525. Fits my hand, sights align when I point it, shoots well, easier to shoot than a j-frame, but prints worse in a pocket. I've shot a few blocks, some sigs, and the Beretta's. It's no 1911, but it's the first 9mm I've ever found...

    A friend of mine just picked up an "old" rifle as part payment for a roofing job. 4 digit Marlin M93, with an R suffix, and a star cartouche stamped "JM" in a circle, (inspector?). How do I found out how old this is? Marlin serial numbers seem to...
