    Try offering it for trade to someone who cast for muzzle loaders or someone who swages. For me, the dead soft is a lot harder to find. I use range scrap, that is a bit on the hard side, for most of my casting. I only have about 60 or 70 pounds of...

    The old cast iron drain pipes use to be sealed with a fiber packing and lead poured on top of that. If it is 3 to 6 inches around and about 3/4 inch thick, that is what it should be. I believe most of this was dead soft.

    I shoot in a 2x4 match on a regular basis. I use a .44 loaded with a 260 grn. wad cutter and 7 grains of Unique. The round makes a nice neat .430 hole for the first 1/4 to 1/2 inch and then knocks 6-to 10 by about 1.5 inch chunk out of the back. ...

    The one thing I notice from the pictures on the home page is it appears there is an extreme shortage of the plastic gun generation. Maybe if there was more of these being sold:

    Sasquatch-1 replied to a thread Half jackets in Swaging
    I make some 200 grn 1/2 jacket for 44 only because I got the at a very good price. They work well in the single die step bullet swage dies like the CH4D 105 and the Swage-it dies now sold by Hawk precision bullets. This type of bullet with a...

    I have never had one explode. I have had a small hole where the lead came squirting out under pressure. As mentioned hammer or side cutters work. Don't do this while the bullets are hot. Save your jackets, they have value.

    Got these from AltaMont (https://www.altamontco.com/pistol-grips/). The grips with scrimshaw cost me $60.00 when I got them.

    If you are going to get a set of dies that has a core forming die your core slug would have to be a diameter that will fit in the die. Something that would give you a finished bullet near the weight you want and just a tad over. You bleed off the...

    If you shoot at a range where there are a lot of members, take him with you and see what is out there. Ask around and I am sure that he will get offers to shoot everything form Mark series 22's on up through the big boys. This way he will get to...

    I will agree that part of it is me. But I have a TC Hawken flint that when I do my job it will put the balls on paper touching at 50 and I have a 54 cal Traditions Hawken cap lock that will consistently make 3 leaf clovers at 50 yds. This gun...

    Consider stepping up one size and look at the S&W K frames. The Mod 10/64 (blued/SS) is a little bigger then the J frame but you do get 6 shots as opposed to 5. I have owned both the 60 and the 64 and loved both of them. I have seen police turn...

    I have an old Euroarms Kentuckian that was given to me by an uncle. This is a rock lock and at 50 yds I am lucky to hit the 2x2 foot backer. I am wondering if I should try relining the barrel or replace it. If I were to replace it I would...

    Well, if she wants a good reaction from a milk jug she will have to use a round with a lot of authority. Try a heavier bullet with a much softer alloy.

    It's a TC. Short stock. 50 cal. on a Hawken style stock. It's about 6 to 8" shorter then my Traditions Hawken. I don't shoot it often because it is really too short for me. My TC Hawken in .50 with the Rock Lock is what I have been shooting...

    I get my range scrap from an outdoor range. When cast and water dropped, it tends to fall into the 22-23 range. Which, according to my Cabine Tree chart, is Lyman #2 to quenched WW. This is a pistol range mostly, and the screen I use lets most of...

    From what I have read, if you ever in an area where colonial trade was done, the English ships use to use flint as ballast on their trips from England and dump it around the ports. I would think if you ever get to the Baltimore or the bay area you...

    I don't swage for jacketed 357 but it seems the 32 auto is what people like to use. A friend has used 9mm and has to draw down the diameter.

    Picked up, what I believe is a TC Seneca, in .45 cal at a local pawn shop for $100.00. Seems side locks do not sell well, used, in the Eastern Panhandle of WV. This gun is ideal for the child who is between 4th and 7th grade or for people who may...
