    The first Zulu wars are finished, but we must prepare for a possible assault. They have been lying doggo for too long. It is quiet, too quiet. Something may be afoot

    There are folks in the system who will sell their mothers for money, lifestyle, or worst of all political ideology. The systems are secure, all it takes is one user with access who is not secure.

    I am going to go to a much harder alloy and see if accuracy drops off at the same velocity and powder charge, or whether I can attain higher velocities with a harder bullet. I have had the experience of increasing the accuracy speed limit on cast...

    A bear is a predator and if a bear believes it can attack and eat you, there will be an attack. In the 1980s bear encounters ending in injury or death in Alberta were grossly under reported. One year there were at least 5 folk killed by bears, one...

    I have done ladder tests on 0.367" bullets in 9.3x57 using 200 grain powder coated bullets. Accuracy starts to fall off just as the 5744 starts to burn consistently - about 2200 fps Powder coat is not as tough as copper jackets. Powder coat...

    Also keep the temperatures down, Do not breath the fumes - do this outside, and stay away from the down wind side. The fumes will kill you . If you have a lid that fits the pot and keeps the sulphur fumes in, it will help.
