    Steve, on the GGCA, (German Gun Collector's Assn., I'm a member), there is a discussion about 6.5 X 57 brass. Needless to say several of those guys are guru's when it comes to German firearms and cartridges. One of those guru's just posted, in...

    Use care adding the MS as you can create an explosive atmosphere, in an enclosed space, compleat with static electricity. Also, too much can cause the dirt to stick to the brass like specks of hard wax, which is extremely hard to remove. I add a...

    Can cause your hair to stand up just before your pucker string fluctuates, with staining results. Once in an aluminum boat and again standing on my front porch. Now when the first hint of it is noticed, I find safe shelter. The concussion of it...

    Sounds like something a liberal politician would think up to solve a none existent problem. Sometimes corporate lawyers have to do something to make themselves indispensable.

    mold maker replied to a thread Charles Krauthammer in Our Town
    Everybody forms opinions on misinformation at one time or another. I don't fault Charles for his anti-gun leanings. His foresight in most matters was spot on, and his intellect made him a person to pay close attention to. Above all he had real...

    Over a couple years I mined and smelted over 7 tons of range lead and they considered it a favor. I sold in excess of 400 lbs of jacket material and scrap brass. What other hobby pays you to participate? Kinda proves you can save money casting,...

    The cicadas, crickets, locust or whatever keep me company when I'm alone. Especially when I don't want company. It's just a sad fact of life that we get smarter too late to avoid it. As a child, I grew up alone at the other end of nowhere. I...

    Remember that that flag, no matter how tattered and worn, is still personal property. To remove it without permission and cut the rope is breaking the laws it represents. Publishing a picture and the phone # is a great idea that will likely get...

    Jim, I've saved a small fortune on exercise equipment I didn't have to buy to satisfy my Dr. All he ever advised me to do was loose weight and take these pills. I figure I lost about 20# a ton working up all that lead. Now my major concern is a...

    yes, you can tumble lube Missouri Bullets in Alox as well as copper coated bullets. Alox is the smokiest common lube ingredient that I know of.

    Oldbrowngun, Welcome to the forum. Alox is the cause of your smoke, but I've also heard that Unique does exacerbate smokiness, depending on the load, Unique starts to burn cleaner as the charge gets to a certain pressure range. If you choose to...

    With age comes a softer voice and when my wife faces the other direction and softly talks, all I hear is muffeled murmer. Why does she always face me and speak loudly while calling me deaf?

    Look under the front leveling foot on the washer. The mold might be what fixed the washer. After all, you left it on the top for him to use.

    Toomaker, the first 40-70 brass I bought from Buffalo Arms when I got the rifle all those years ago. I'm certain it was re-formed from 30-40 Krag brass. At that time I bought 100 cases and haven't needed any more. A couple years ago a friend sent...
