    I use 3 thin coats of BLL for rifle shooting up to 2500 fps. with no leading at all. If you get leading with 3 coats in your rifle it won't be the BLL. I've never had a speck of lead with either Ben's Red or BLL in the same loads

    Oh, I see grammar mentioned. Those who use the preposition "AT" at the end of a sentence. E.g., "Where were you AT?", "Where was it AT?". "AT" is unneeded in those sentences. Unless the person to whom you are speaking is named "At", it is...

    Changed my Dillon 550 over to 45acp from 380 while the pot and moulds were getting up to temp last night. Today I cleaned about 1200 pieces of brass and inspected the boolits I cast last night. Waiting for a banker to get off his backside so I'll...

    My 1000 yd gun has had the safety removed from it also, not required and the only time a round is chambered is just before the rifle is fired. ( The rounds sit on the follower longer than in the chamber usually). But this is a unique situation...

    It's my understanding that the wax used to be almost totally carnauba wax, but like everything else has been changed by the bean counters, to a plastic wax formula that works great for the cheese, but sucks as a lube. I saved over half a lb before...

    Oily, no family secret here, I'll see if I can compose this for you. We start with 4-5 lbs. beef (I usually use round roast because I don't like the fatty brisket), good lean deer or elk works well too. 2 quarts water 1 cup kosher salt 1/2 cup...
