    Grmps, Yes it's a convection oven. I'll have to look into the ceramic retaining media. ioon44, Bullets were set outside in the sun until dry to the touch. I don't get your mixing. This was powder so it's mixed 20 grams to 100 ml. I've been using...

    I wondered about that. The second batch had a touch more acetone. Only cooked the first batch for 6 minutes then shook then 6 minutes more. Second was 7 min then shake then 7 minutes. Both of those were starting from a cold oven so some of that was...

    First time trying Hi-Tek and was sort of disappointed. Came out looking good, would not wipe off with acetone but both bullets with 3 coats or 2 coats would flake when smashed. trying to figure out what went wrong.

    If it's easy to unscrew a buffer tube to switch back and forth then maybe it's not installed right. The castle nut is supposed to be staked. Some of the better carbine stocks fit tight with no rattle.

    10mm with Blue Dot likes longer barrels. I used mine in my Glock 20 but They preferred my Contender with a 10 inch barrel. In the Contender the loads would pick up a lot more fps. Great loads but be aware that the powder is a bit slow for short...

    I got my hands on a 6 inch Wilton Bullet vise on a swivel base after watching it sit on a shelf in a lab for 15 years practically new and unused. They closed down the lab and I managed to get it. It's really kind of to big for my needs but I could...
