    mold maker replied to a thread Lead in Our Town
    It's a habit that becomes a lifestyle. I really get "the look" when I stop and pick up WWs at an intersection. I guess at 75 I'm supposed to be more mature. I remember when WWs were thrown in the garbage at every tire service center. They would...

    I'll offer another idea, maybe try using a 500 S&W shell or other 50 cal pistol caliber to make a spring loaded cookie cutter. These were parts I had laying around, but if you are handy you could make one with a brass case a nail and a short piece...

    I believe Dan hit on what is most likely to cause any problems using 3F. It does have a tendency to "donut" patterns. I'm also inclined to agree with him on the 60 grs. It's easy enough to start there and go up if the need arises. In my...

    You have added many good suggestions...but the one I highlighted in red is one that hasn't been mentioned yet. It's surely true with Lee pots, and I'd expect it to be true with other brands as well, as head pressure changes due to mass/gravity. ...

    Just like with presses and lube sizers, I have enough and then some. You never know when you'll do something foolish or one will break. Over the years I've collected bargains.

    I am an older item to some, and I do use some antique tools in reloading. I have also retired some in favor of newer more robust machinery. That said, I also occasionally shoot an Eli Whitney revolver in 32 rimfire. Does that qualify?
