    My basement is not the issue. Thereís a dehumidifier that can run year round if need be. My issue is a detached non climate controlled garage. If literally rains inside during the swing seasons. If itís been cold and everything inside is cold...

    This question is simple for me. Buy Lee dies, if they donít work buy another brand. Iíve had to do this only on a few rare occasions. There are advantages to certain features that brands use exclusively. But Iíve found I can load accurate ammo...

    I guess this is recent. I asked him about three months ago about buying a Walnut Hill press and he gave me a price and said it was mine if I wanted it. Kind of glad I decided to sell the die set I had instead of buying the press if heís actually...

    Copy the photos from the iPhone to your desktop. Click on them to open. Check the orientation. If itís wrong, correct it and it should automatically save. Iíve found that if youíve taken a pic on the phone, and then rotated it that there are...

    Sure you can get the data online.....assuming itís always there. Thereís a lot to be said for printed manuals. I buy their annual magazine every year. I also go through their online data yearly and save all the loads listed, for what I load, in...

    My 9mm AR is one the most fun guns to shoot. It has a habit of eating up a lot of ammo in short order. Thereís a lot of options when it comes to building them these days.

    Hodgon Annuals for pure load volume. Itís everything on their site in a printed version. I buy them every year. Also buy every other manual I can. But if youíre only looking for a few buy ones for the brand bullets you use. If you know how to...

    I donít have one that takes the AR mags. I have both a RAR and RAP that take the plastic rotary mags. Theyíre horrible in every way. Had they made ones that take AR mags I would have bought them. I have nothing good to say about the rotary mags....

    Two years out? I guess no one has been paying attention to AG nominee William Barr. If heís confirmed it doesnít look good for gun owners. I will keep it at that since this isnít the pit. Democrat controlled house combined w/ an AG that has said...

    A 357 AR barrel is arriving by end of the day tomorrow. I posted in this thread 2.5 years ago. I got tired of the 358 Yeti barrels and parts never being available. So when the 357 AR barrel became available I bought it. Iím not a fan of modified...

    I used an RCBS mallet when I first started casting. It worked fine and I eventually wore it out (millions of splinters over several years). Now I use pieces of tree limbs I cut, sand and finish. They are free for me and work just as well.

    Ideally, for the Christian, motivation to do good should not come from fear of punishment or desire to be rewarded. Motivation should be a genuine desire to do the best thing for other people for their benefit and well being . This is what...

    You can but K1 Kerosene at Lowes (or Walmart). It is used for indoor heaters and kind of expensive. We also have a gas station that carries it in town.

    I have never cleaned a new die before use. I clean dies normally after each major batch I reload. I use a heat gun to melt out the wax in the bullet seater. Then I wipe out the insides and internals of all the dies with Eezox.

    I don't believe I've ever said that "if it's not in the Bible, it's not true." I said the Bible is the authority for faith and conduct for Christians. All truth is God's truth. I guess we'll disagree on whether a soul is everlasting and whether...

    I cast until Iím tired. Then cull the rejects and move everything into an ammo can. I then count when sizing as I donít like storing lubed bullets. Had some large messes in the ammo cans because of it, even w/ harder lubes. I always size a...

    The entry price is going to keep the vast majority on this site away. Itís not meant for cast bullet shooters. Itís meant for commercial reloaders and competition shooters. If anyone is actually interested in them I suggest you go to Brian Enos...

    Yes, I do. I even have a degree in biblical studies. 1. “Our true nature is Spirit, an image of God.” Being made in the image of God means we have intellect, will and emotion. It does not mean we have the same type of existence. We have a...

    This may be the case for the cans but the plastic bottles contained one pound. The plastic bottles came in one, four and eight pounds.

    I own more NOE molds because he offers a lot more. And all of them are solids. I tried one RG mold and sold it in short order. They donít function nearly as easily as the Cramer molds do. Mihec has spoiled us in this regard. And even though the...

    Heat cycling is all thatís required. This starts the patina which helps bullet release and more importantly helps prevent tinning if youíre using an alloy w/ tin in it. I heat cycle mine three times in a toaster oven. Turn it on high and stick it...
