    I use H4895 with a dacron filler in my rifle 1873 and 1882 duplication 45-70 loads. As mentioned there is some residue but it's not been problematic. H4895 even with the dacron filler in carbine level loads doesn't generate enough psi for efficient...

    I seated those so they just kiss the leader when the bolt is closed and that they fit the magazine.

    Keith, I fill the pot kinda on what I'm casting, and how many boolits I plan on making. But, it will hit 800 even when I fill it up all the way. So, if yours is not doing it, call Eric at Magma and let him know and I'm sure he will take care of the...

    Leupold has stood behind their products for me even when it was no fault of theirs. Once I accidentally dropped a rifle into a pile of rocks when I slipped and fell while Elk hunting. Another time I was thrown off a horse while Deer hunting when the...

    ShooterAZ replied to a thread Traeger Grills in Our Town
    I have taken my big Traeger grill camping once, and ran it off the inverter of my Tacoma. I don't think I would do that again, because it's dang heavy. They make smaller ones though, the Tailgater and one called the Scout. These things work so well...

    Keith, if it's possible I would opt for no extension at all. I'd want to plug the pot directly into the outlet. That's what I do, and I also have a 1000 degree thermometer that I keep in the pot. Make a holder from a flat strip of metal, two holes,...

    I pulled this article off of the Ruger forum, a lot of good info here. I use both the 200 and 250 gr Real boolits in my ROA. RE: Best Loads for the Ruger Old Army Best Loads for the Ruger Old Army By C.E. Harris Round balls are still the...

    Got the Red Ball 20 Rd 45 magazine in yesterdays mail, just got back from testing it for function, 100 rds no malfunctions. It is a thumb buster to load though, hoping it will break in and load a little easier. A couple years ago I bought a ProMag...

    The $79.95 rebuild is a good deal. I bet I have rebuilt more than 50% of mine just by calling them when something broke or wore out.

    Keith, post some images of your modified shelf in brighter light if you can. Those sound like nice improvements.

    ShooterAZ replied to a thread Traeger Grills in Our Town
    We own a Traeger, and we love it. Yeah it's a little spendy up front, but I will say that their customer service is second to none if you ever have a problem with it. Keeps the temperature right where you set it, just like an oven. I give them a...

    Keith, you will really like the pot. Being able to hold so much lead is a real sweet deal. It allows you to really turn out the boolits without having to wait while the pot gets up to temp each time you refill it. I got my master caster back in 2012...

    I would probably just replace the old wood boards with some 2x6 T&G, the butt joint kind with no v-groove.

    Another +1 for the RCBS automatic bench primer. I tried the Universal one too, and ended up taking it back and getting the bench mounted tool. It's solid and functions perfectly. I have one of the old Lee auto-prime too, but it's on it's very last...

    I use Testors red over a coat of white. The white underneath seems to help it "light up" some. Have done the same thing with a couple of mil-surp rifles and it helps me pick up the sights a lot easier. I may try some lime green paint sometime, I...
