    Depends on what you are using it for. You could just add tin and be fine. If it's for handgun use I'd mix the lino in a ratio of 1/3. For rifle, a 1/1 ratio will give you "hardball" alloy.

    I have a Winchester M70 Featherweight in 270 Win. Not a short action, but it's plenty of gun for the wide open places I hunt. It's flat shooting, accurate, and pleasant to carry compared to my Ruger 77 300 Win Mag. Recoil is tolerable too. It wears...

    AbitNutz. sure would be interested in some images of the cartridge that you worked on. Sounds like you took on the challenge and came out the winner.

    POI shift happens (no pun intended), not only with centerfire cartridges but with rimfire as well. My suggestion would be to try a different powder. Try some Bullseye or Titegroup and see what happens.

    Another thumbs up for the Howard Leight Impact muffs for handgun shooting. For rifle, I use the Peltor Tactical 6. Both have served me well.

    I took Larry's advice on the Lee TL314-90 SWC a long time ago. Not only does it work, it's splendidly accurate. I also shoot thousands in my 30's sized .311 and .314 in my Mosin Nagant. Don't let case prep scare you away from this. In fact, I am...

    For my black powder stuff, I usually use Bore Butter in the winter and a 50/50 blend of beeswax and olive oil in the summer. I also discovered that the beeswax olive oil mix blends easily with Bore Butter. I have a tub of this that I have been using...

    It's good stuff for black powder shooting. We have an early muzzle loader season in September and there have been times Bore Butter is pretty much a liquid when it gets warm. Perhaps mixing it with some wax might firm it up some.

    I'll stay alert to it. We live out in the sticks, no high speed road where he could have been hit by a car. No poisons or chemicals around and nothing like that ever dies of old age and such in the wild. Just curious. I have one outside the...

    Interesting. Why do they shoot cormorants? Are they harmful in some way? I guess I don't know much about them.

    I went out to shoot some .38 Specials yesterday morning and there was a dead rabbit lying right on the 25 yard line which wasn't there the evening before. Near as I could tell, not a mark on it and otherwise seemed healthy, not starved, fur looked...

    Funny you have the same thought as me. I have been thinking I want to do just that; wall tent, cast at camp and all. If my health holds, I will get it done.

    Well was hoping it was not going to rain, but I was wrong. Decided I was tired of being run out of outdoors on account of rain, (like four weeks of rain) so, I decided to take over the kitchen stove to get some casting done. But first, off to home...

    In my neck of the woods, it's packrats that crawl up in the engine compartment and chew wiring. I have had to "rescue" a couple of friends who were out in the woods either camping or hunting when their vehicle became disabled.
