    The vid in the dark in slow motion is interesting watching that little piece of metal burning off while stuck to the stone.

    I have no idea where to get lead wire from. But I have reshaped cast bullets made of range lead. As mentioned, Take a couple of swings with the handle to slowly form the lead. DO NOT TRY TO BLEED LEAD WITH HARDER ALLOYS. I cracked a die earlier...

    I have had a problem with cutting powder while using Unique. Switched to the small drum and have not had the problem since. Never had the problem you are having. You may want to contact RCBS.

    Don't think I would use it to get the clips out of the melted lead. As mentioned, I can see a lot of hot lead flying around. I do use a strong Harbor Freight magnet to remove the steel jackets from the copper and brass before recycling.

    Actually I have annealed a piece of 40 brass with a live primer. It went off and scare the you know what out of me. When I found the case the primer was only half out of the pocket.

    I found with the Hornady hand primer I had to make a shim that sits on top of the shell holder to get the primer to seat fully. After doing that the only problem I have is with the occasional primer flipping over.

    Sasquatch-1 replied to a thread Flexeril! in Our Town
    Walking around in uniform with a 20 to 25 lb. Sam Brown belt and body armor doesn't help much either. Also being hit by a car while trying to break up a fight early in my career didn't help a lot.

    I use the Hornady hand primer. Comes with two primer trays. One for RCBS style shell holders and one for Hornady's shell holders. Biggest problem is you have to watch for primers flipping when entering the priming body. Doesn't happen often, but...

    You say you have a Camp Chef stove. Is this a small 2 burner camp stove or a large turkey fryer? If it is a small 2 burner you may find it somewhat undersized for what you are trying to do. 200 pounds of lead is a lot to melt from a cold start. ...

    Hawk bullets sells them for use with their swaging die. The die comes with a special base punch that extrudes a bit of lead around the zinc washer. The zinc is actually suppose to work as a lubricant in the barrel. Scroll down to the third item...

    Sasquatch-1 replied to a thread Cast silver? in Cast Boolits
    My LGS has a defense round, that is very light compared to a normal lead or jacketed round, the bullet is silver in color and I believe it is polished aluminum. I did a quick search and couldn't find them.

    Try solid Pewter. With a little attention pewter can look just like silver. Something like a Blitz cloth to wipe down when it starts getting dull.

    As stated earlier in the thread, Do this slowly and with short strokes on the handle or you will end up with a broken die like I did. I also try to reform with in a day or two of casting.
