    Years ago I was on a man trap project for Puerto Rico sidewalk banks. Man trap made of 2" laminated lexan. IIRC it was 50 cal pistol rated, no rifle but I think somebody tested against AK. I tried lifting a 2'x4'x1" skyscraper shatterproof glass....

    Acetone absorbs water, 150F gets rid of it but not all water. But tumbling should eliminate any water on the boolits but will cause clumps of PC. Acetone could have damaged the first coat but to cause pimples? Don't think so. In reality, load em...

    150 Gold Dot bullets @ 2200 fps That's a pretty hot load. I'm running 145gr cast to 2100 and P.P. doesn't last but a couple reloads.

    Use less powder. Lumps of PC that didn't get knocked off. PC flows ~200F but clumps don't have enough weight to flow down.

    Tried that a couple times in Ne, couldn't get them to stop putting beers in front of me. Wreaths across America is having trouble getting donations for next year. Am Leg, DAV, USO, Sinise, etc. are good dependable ones.

    BO with Hornady plinkers and 6 gr.CFE pistol are fun so the 100gr. soup can should work well. You can also go full bore loads as well. My 308 & 30/30 molds work well in the BO too.

    Lake Yellowstone reportedly has large lake trout. In the 80's (right after the big fire) I tried fishing the park stream, no trout but the buffalo will walk across the stream next to you. Don't let kids get around the moose.

    I tumble, then cook on a hot plate just to get flow. I started using the ammo tray (nylon) to drop the 30 cal rifle into, flip on the oven tray (texas license plat is flat) for final bake. Place cooking tray in oven and remove nylon ammo tray. ...

    308 brass is tough and the Lee neck sizer takes a whole lot of pressure to actually shrink the neck dia. Get the fl sizer and a good case lube.

    There were several sold by craftsman, then they were off the market, guess they are back. Interesting, as it uses a fan, could make a vandergraff machine with the fan for static. I did some yesterday, sized to 311 then coated and this morning they...

    TB is tablespoon? Way too much powder for just 20 boolits. Maybe need 1/2 teaspoon. Keep PC utensils away from the kitchen.

    So it should clean hard water crusties from coffee makers then. Lemishine keeps the basic crud in suspension, does NOT clean 'lime' deposits very well. A dash of salt will help keep the pot clean, especially the Alum. ones.

    PC gun will not necessarily give a thinner coat. The craftsman one is reported to be very low quality. When tumbling, try to use very little powder. When you tumble, almost NO powder left in the bowl. Try about 1 level tea spoon /5# of boolits. &...

    Yea, saw that on the menu, forget it. We know virtually nothing about it, just an ad for spending more Gov. money. I did work with a gal who wanted to go there for vacation. I told her I'd buy the one-way ticket.

    Before we could afford those, carve them out of wood and shot rubber bands. Before that it was forefinger and thumb, yell bang/pow. Mattel was pretty good.

    Have a DVR/cable box? Call C.S. or just power off the cable box 1 min, restart. Digital timing drift. Home electronics aren't what they used to be. Most of the LED TVs are just a computer, LED screen. Cable boxes are even lower quality.

    I always thought road signs came from the factory with 'extra' holes, haven't seen many without them in rural areas. Maybe the 'night' shooters can see them better?
