    Just showed the kiddo (he's an artist), his response was "Awesome! It looks like the effect you get with overwet paper using watercolor and striations with the brush" He wish's you had a portfolio to show off your work. We get lots of cool ideas...

    reed1911 replied to a thread WTS-Soft Lead in Swappin & Sellin
    With the quality I get from Bushwack, it's hard to justify the difference in time and gas. There are other vendors here I use and have never been disappointed. Other places I have been, ordered 60lbs one time as clean ingots, I got a clean...

    I have an 870 express from the mid 80s. It is marked 2 and 3/4 inch. However, I measured the camber and it is parallel to past the 3" mark. I have shot hundreds of 3" shells through it duck hunting. Only issue is that the ejector is slightly short,...

    What a wonderfully neat idea! Who are you working with on the bullet? Hawk Bullets would be a good source, you may give them a call.

    There are two ways to go about it in my opinion, depending on what you are looking to achieve. If you just need to expand the mouth to allow for a bullet to be seated, then yes the .50-70 or .50-90 expander will work. You can also buy a custom one...

    AMEN DON! If the price is right when you buy it, the price is RIGHT! Sometimes you get smokin' deals, sometimes you pay a little premium, but 95% of the time you pay market price.

    I use shrimp all the time for catfish. We catch blues and channels. If the fish are small I use a #2 or #4 hook with an egg sinker. I use raw shrimp,usually medium , from the grocery store. I get the raw shrimp, peeled or shell on, If too large for...

    I've always had great results from 4D Reamer Rentals. Even when I've needed to extend the rent time due to project issues, Fred has been more than gracious with extensions. I've always gotten good sharp reamers and all have cut smooth.

    You have failed to respond to my texts to even clarify what you just posted. Have a great day. Written off as far as I'm concerned.

    wnc435 did a great job packing the press. USPS dropped the ball and broke the cast aluminum base as well as dented the primer drop tube, the powder shut off, the shot shut off and gouged up the cam arm. I did not ask for insurance and none was...

    What die are you using to crimp your cartridges? Seat a bullet, do not crimp...How tight is the bullet? can it be pushed further inside the case? If so, you need a smaller expander. I barely crimp or dont crimp almost all my cartridges. If I do...

    <sigh> Trail Boss, well it does what it is advertised to do, but good night it is dirty. And yes, you use WAY more than necessary. HP-38/W231, Tightgroup, Unique, and Bullseye are so good for cast. There are are others as well (Nitro and AA#2 among...

    Actually I shoot tons of the NOE 45g PB in .22 Hornet at .22LR velocities using 3.5g HP-38/W231 and it does wonderfully. However lead through a suppressor is a pain to clean up after all the time, and you have to have one you can take apart to do...

    I have a 1:7 twist I made into a .22 Hornet SS shooter. Works just fine. It was a side project for me, just happened to have a stub left over and nothing else to do with it. Fast pistol powders do much better accuracy wise light with a SP...
