    Sadly, they are stacked, about 4 high, right in front of my work bench...stumbling over them was incorrect terminology(sorry), I should have said, "in the way...and reaching over them is a pain"

    Problem is that the so-called learned are so intent on self-importance that they profess to already know everything and are just explaining it to us peons. We don't need them to accept Gods miracle and realize that he knew what he was doing at...

    I was gifted a three reel Toro Mower from a church when it was returned as too old and in too rough a shape to rebuild. It was in boxes, completely disassembled. I was 8 years old at the time, and within two weeks I had it reassembled. Dad was...

    All of us act on our own experience...why would we not? With 40 cal and 45 cal BPC I've probably killed something around 30 deer and several hogs. Bullets have always been 25:1 and velocities have never exceede about 1250 fps. Of all the deer and...

    I am hankering to do some smelting. I haven't done any for a couple years. I have 50 to 100 lbs of range scrap plus another 200+ lbs of unfired boolits and random fishin weights to melt. I'm just waiting for the mud to dry up in my smelting...

    I'm not sure what pressure you are loading to, but if your 20:1 has been working good for you, Then you will probably want to mix about 6 lbs of your pure lead to 1 lb of linotype, that will bring the antimony down to about 2%, but tin will be well...

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread Marlin or Henry in Leverguns
    I quit the 44 leverguns, due to how Marlin and Henry make the barrel groove diameter and twist rate. If you can find a Marlin in 41 and can afford it, I'd buy it. I have one and love it. Last year I bought a Henry Big Boy Steel in 41. I like...

    I no longer load 44 mag, but I did REALLY like HS-6 for mid level loads in 44 mag, back when I loaded for it. I've never tried it in the 500.

    I agree, "I think most of the wax around cheese is a Microcrystalline food grade low melt temp" I have saved some wax from a brand of Irish cheddar cheese, it had a pretty thick layer of wax. It's surely not hard like Carnuba Wax is. This...

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread Venison?? in Our Town
    Yep, this is what I would do. Generally you can both see (light colored area) and smell freezer burnt meat...the smell is more of a "stale" type smell, not a rotten smell. It's easy to trim it off.

    I've heard about problems with "UPS Stores". I am lucky to have a UPS regional Hub in my small town, never had any major problems with them. Although one time, when shipping 5 bricks of 22lr ammo, I was asked how many rounds? Since I never had...

    Much hoop cheese still has the original wax covering. The current Baby Bell covering is different.

    Les, there is a formula for either 4198 or 4895...my years and memory are telling on me. I believe it's 60% of max of one of those powders generally shoots to the sights and regulates. I believe the formula is on one of these sites and a search...

    I have the same bullet mold I size for 9mm's. Anything from 1500 fps and up is more than enough for any deer in the US. As far as bullet drop at 150 yards, learn your rifle and load and it becomes a non-issue.

    If the rifle shoots I wouldn't worry about it. I have a 1S in 7mmRM, that shoots 1/2moa. The constriction at the band and front sight is quite noticable with a patched jag and the copper build up in those 2 areas is significant. The rifle shoots...
