    Thanks , Joe. Mixed up a normal 100 ml 20 grams batch. The Texas tea went a little darker. I overcooked it by a few minutes, I guess. But all fine with the acetone rub and smash. Now to look for a bigger oven. The little guy can’t handle more...

    At 475 pages, I have to index the pages in my reloading notebook and take pics of the posts relevant to me. Would it be worthwhile starting a separate thread on HITEK in rifles ? What say the 'mob of colours' ? Cheers
