    Our grandson that is staying with us while he attends a local college, has mentioned casting bullets for his muzzleloader from car battery plates. And over the weekend he went to visit his parents, and came back with a bunch of car batteries. We...

    Well, I see somebody has responded again to my question about developing a press that doesn't apply a turning-over moment to the edge of the press table it is attached to. I have been working on some drawings for my idea, designing and drawing are...

    I loaded and shot Red Dot for years in 7/8 ounce 12 gauge trap loads. Then went to PROMO when Red Dot disappeared. Then when PROMO disappeared, I moved on to Accurate Nitro 100 NF which I have been using successfully for 4 or 5 years now. And it...

    It seems like I have been purchasing or collecting reloading equipment for the last 40 years, and almost have all the reloading dies for every firearm that I have. Numbering about 40 sets, I am now wondering if I should purchase the last two sets...

    Ok, I am back with my 40 MM ammo cans that just fit on my shelves. I bought 4 of them, and have one from a long time ago. I just need to do a little straightening of these new ones, but they are in pretty good shape for the $12.95 I paid for them....

    I do keep my empty 12 gauge plastic hulls in old 61.7 pound (5 gallon I think) sheet rock mud tubs as they are pretty heavy duty and I have about 8 of them left over from sheet rock jobs on my house and a few other jobs I did for relatives. And the...

    As part of my reorganizing all of the brass in my reloading room, I came across about 200 new Winchester 348 cases that I bought 20 years ago to convert into 43 Spanish for my Remington Rolling Block rifle. I had purchased a box of 20 cases at a...

    Keep these all good ideas coming, as I progress through all of this. I have already moved most of my cast lead projectiles to those square clear plastic peanut containers my wife buys at WalMart. And they fit on the shelves on my loading bench...

    Over all of these years of collecting firearms, reloading die sets, brass and forming brass for all of these, I am looking for a system of keeping tract of all of this brass and organizing it all in some sort of containers. Right now most of it is...

    So, what country are these made in? And I see that they only offer a one year warranty. With a machine that complex and still under development and set up for that few rounds I think it has a very limited appeal. Maybe for a police shooting range...
