    Anytime I got a lickin', I knew I would get it before I did whatever stupid thing I was about to do. Looking back, it was worth it, as the lickin' didn't last long, and I did some pretty outrageous (for the times) things.

    Yes Tazza, I can also see that. But question is, why previous blogs remained at 1466 with several postings prior to the 1467 post. I thought that each post goes to next number. For unknown reason, it stayed at 1466 for a while.

    I've been using it with powder coated gas checked bullets for 3 years now according to the 2015 date on the HBN bottle. I've also added to lube(no value I could determine) and used on a patch to condition the bore, helped with getting HBN back into...

    Have you tried using Federal Large Pistol primers? Because they are a softer cup, ignition is very fast and positive. My group size almost halved and I use them in all my BPCR rifles including the 59/90!

    I empty my Lee pot all the time. Since my pot is bolted to the bench, I just drain it through the bottom pour spout into a ingot mold, when no more lead comes out, I make a cross in the remaining lead and shut off the pot. When cool, I can just...

    Grmps, you are correct. The materials used for making coatings all reflect heat and tolerate a great deal of pressure. The metallic modification with these coatings so far has appeared to provide slightly better heat reflecting ability. So it is...
