    I am not super experienced but I have learned a few things. When melting wheel weights I have used pine saw dust collected from my own saws and find it works OK but not any better than wax for ME. With range lead, it has seemingly everything under...

    I am not an electrician. So there is that. But there are charts readily available on this. I assume there eventually will be electricity in the building. Or if you are rural, won't they put a pole by your building? If you are eventually going to...

    I recently picked up an RCBS 38-150 and poured a few. I really like the looks of the bullet, drops a bit smaller than I would like. I plan to get these powder coated and then I will see how they shoot. With my lead, combination of COWW and range...

    Reorganizing my reloading cave, benches, and storage. Then I plan to get my 9mm back in stock, then some PC 158 grain SWC. Just before the "vacation" hit I melted several hundred pounds of range lead into ingots ready to make into beautiful...

    Right now I am fortunate to be able to remove scrap from our local club range. Who knows how long that will last before someone declares it unsafe. Also, as I read the many replies about mining lead from outdoor ranges, I wonder how long that...

    In my area, central KS, scrap anything is not worth much. I took some cast out of a house, cut down two really heavy metal clothes lines, pulled some old wire out of a rental and had a couple buckets of metal weights and clips along with some copper...

    Huskerguy replied to a thread GoodRX in Our Town
    I belonged to a health care cost sharing group for several years. It did not have drug coverage. I tried GoodRX and it worked great. It saved me a bunch of money and was really easy. There should be no fee to use it. They will give you the best...

    I have melted several pounds of range scrap in the past, usually while cleaning up some wheel weights and some other softer lead. I wanted to track the weight and yield to see how it actually came out after reading some accounts on this site. ...

    I am in the process of melting several 5 gallon buckets of range lead and it stinks like crazy. The last two days have been extremely windy which helps keep the smoke away but carries quite a ways down the street. I live on a corner lot with a...
