    And where do you get kerosene? When I was a kid my father had a Farmall M tractor that he bought during WW-II that ran on kerosene, and we had a barrel full of it in the yard. But I don't think the gasoline/diesel supplier carries it anymore?

    After many years of purchasing reloading die sets, and just taking them out of the box and using them, I read the included instruction manual and it says to clean the dies before use. Does everybody else do that? And how often do you clean your...

    What issue of Handloader is that article in? I have several years of handloader back before about 1999, but decided that they were heading in a direction that I wasn't interested in (high-pressure magnum rifle and pistol rounds with jacketed...

    I am shooting these out of a Ruger Redhawk with a 7.5" barrel and I do have a bunch of really old W231 to shoot up also. I have been using it for 9mm Luger and 380 ACP, but those don't use it up very fast. My brother gave me a bunch of these...

    I appreciate all the suggestions on these light for 44 Mag loads. I have about 40 or 50 bullets of each size to try, so it will be just for some target shooting. And lucky for me, I have most all of the powders suggested. Maybe I will start with...

    I have six different batches of sample cast projectiles ranging in weight from 228 to 310 grains and would like to put together some low to mid-level loads for these. Some of them are gas checked and the rest are plain based, including the 228...

    Red axle grease for the ram and sliding parts and a drop of 10-30W tractor engine oil on the pins.

    Good story! I have had a similar situation years ago and never thought of this solution, since I generally hunt with one of those old military rifles!

    Well, my wife (she is a Yank) drinks coffee in the morning and thinks I need a cup in the tree stand on those cold winter mornings. But come the middle of the afternoon I have these terrific withdrawal feelings unless I have my tea and crumpet.

    DonMountain replied to a thread Hunting bag in Hunting with CB's
    For deer hunting, while wearing my tweed jacket, camel hair hat and a tie, I prefer a two quart Thermos of coffee as opposed to the tea now-a-days, plus some crumpets and a couple of extra cartridges for my 303 British.

    I started out deer hunting many years ago with a pair of Swedish Mausers in 6.5x55 shooting 129 grain Hornady jacketed bullets over a load of IMR-4350. It is a relatively flat shooting cartridge with minimal recoil, especially in the 29" barrel...

    RCBS 45-300 FNGC. I went through the 500 grainers and other heavy bullet molds before advancing to this one. Lighter recoil, better accuracy, higher velocity, and has killed every deer I shot it at. The 500 grainers killed deer too, but it took a...

    Thats funny. Does yours say "FAIRMOUNT U.S.A." on the side of it also? Like mine does? Your picture looks just like mine. And I use mine almost as much as I use one of the reloading presses mounted on my bench. Then come the other tools: ...
