    I have some that I bought already a little rusted. The steel wool route worked, for the most part. I keep them oiled and in a baggie separate from my other ones. They work perfectly fine though.

    Show Low is in the White Mountain area of Arizona. The town got its name in the 1880's from a poker game. The name of the main street through town is called "Deuce of Clubs". It's really a neat little town, and I'm certain that you and your wife...

    Hello, I want to neck size 40 caliber rifle brass necks, without the case lube, and it may be that the 41 mag carbide die will do the job. My rifle bullet diameter is 0.409" so this might be a good fit. Can anyone measure the sized OD (but not...

    ShooterAZ replied to a thread xlox in Boolit Lube !
    xlox and Lee alox are both good boolit lubes, however your boolit diameter is going to be the most important thing to avoid leading. Size to .358 for the 105 and .452 for the 45 and you should be OK. I use it with the Lee 105 and Lee 148 WC with...

    ..............I use the mops 99% of the time for oiling the bore after cleaning. The other 1% is used after shooting corrosive primed ammo (30-06, 8x57 & 7.62x54R) with a water/windex mix. ...........Buckshot

    ................You may go here on Cast Boolits: http://castpics.net/dpl/index.php/the-archives/group-buy-mold-archive There is no way that ALL of the "Group Buy", or "Custom" designs are listed there. I think only 2 are listed for the 8mm, and...

    Well, they shot alright. Considering the heavy trigger and primitive sights. About 3" groups consistently at 50 yards using a less than stellar bench set up with no rear support. The only adjustment the sights have is being drifted left and...

    Either of those two look promising. If the Accurate flat nosed one would feed reliably it would be awesome. Iv'e had a few issues in the past with FN designs in my carbines. I primarily use the RCBS 30-115-SP, and the Lyman 311359. I can also HP...

    I may need to add some weight to this rifle, should be easy to do with the synthetic stock. No recoil pad on it, just a hard butt plate. Might need to get a slip on one.

    They all seem to eat real well around here, even bucks during the rut. I hunt public land, but the state manages it and allows people to farm it, not sure how that deal works, but the deer on there eat real well on milo and soybeans. I don't grill...

    Until just a few years ago, most of my deer kills were with muzzle loaders and I used that Lyman Plains bullet with some pretty heavy loads. Got the job done and I only ever recovered one bullet, but now older and smarter, I realize what I used was...

    Several years ago, I bought a little CVA in .54 from a young man who had it advertised locally real cheap. The gun looks unfired, very plain, small and light, has a synthetic stock, not a nice rifle, but seems serviceable. I haven't in a few...

    A Roll crimp device spins. MEC loaders do not incorporate any spinning device for the purpose of creating a roll crimp on a shotshell.

    MOA replied to a thread Load Data in Casting for Shotguns
    Gp, went through my library and have a older copy of a Hodgdon 4th printing of Basic Loading Data. I'll scan and send you a PM with the file. Most of the powders are obsolete, but the wad column information is helpful I think.

    The big downside to enlarged sprue holes is when you go to cut it the greater amount of lead now created by the enlargement will be harder and more force needed. I had to open up two Lee .515 molds and now can only cut the sprue with a protected...
