    I know it's not good to leave a mag loaded all the live long day for decades but what's the longest you ever left a 10-22 10 round factory mag loaded and still have it feed great.

    Don't know if these will work for you, but I picked them up at the local craft store. They are the little beads that you lay out a design and then use an iron to melt together. They really don't do anything for the bullet performance but I told...

    Sasquatch-1 replied to a thread Swaging press in Swaging
    I started out using an RCBS RC4 and a single die step bullet swage die. Broke a link within 2 months. I found an used S press from Dave Corbin and a set of dies and haven't looked back. You can swage on a loading press but a swaging press has...

    Before you give up on the bottom pour try adding a half pound of tin to about 10 pounds of alloy. From what I understand, and this may be wrong, tin reduces the surface tension and therefore allows the mold to fill out better. Sources of tin are...

    Sasquatch-1 replied to a thread WTB: Lube Sizer in Want To Buy !
    You may want to check ebay. There are two used 450's that have not cracked the $50.00 mark yet. Sure they will go for more but you might get luck and get one for under $100.00.

    If you are looking for temporary solutions, A friend uses sight black to reduce glare on his sights. Might be a tad expensive spraying the whole barrel, but would be easily removed. Also, I don't know exactly what is used, but film crews have a...
