    Good for you. I don't put much faith in one 5 shot group at 50 yds though, that's just me. I usually grab a dozen or so flyers from the super market or video store, turn them over and paste a bull on the back, shoot a half dozen groups checking for...

    Sorry to hear that! The scum are probably already headed out of state with it. Just a couple days ago, man and woman stole a travel trailer out of the police impound in broad daylight, they are sitting in jail though.

    I'm sure you guys are right. I have an IR thermometer so you're right about too low temps and hot/cool spots in the oven. Hunter, please look at my Facebook site. Below is link. It shows with pictures, how over cooked coatings behave. Your...

    hunter I hate to be negative, but if your oven cannot provide even bake with two trays, how are you going to fix it by baking 4 trays? In my previous reply. I did not refer to your element being too close to tray of cast. In 22 minutes, they...

    Again, please take note; Your PID is controlling oven air temperatures. It is not controlling radiant heat or actual alloy temperatures. As you have no fan inside your oven, and you don't measure alloy temperature, the PID is doing its work...

    If the ringing bothers you, you can open up the top punch by wrapping a bullet with some fine emery and slowly work on the inside of the top punch until there's no ringing. It shouldn't need much work to clean it up. With that bullet you can...

    If I look at your coated alloy, you have some darker than others. This is telling me that some are baked OK and some are not (lighter colour). It could be a result of over loading of oven, inadequate uneven heat circulation. This will cause some ...
