    I can remember when I was loading for shear production. I had my casting furnace fired up and ran 2 molds, a 125 RN for 38/9mm, and a 230 RN for 45acp. I would cast 100 each and refill my pot. I'd prime and charge 100 cases and by then the boolits...

    When I first started to PC I was using a Harbor Freight ESPC with HF Flat Black. That powder doesn't stick as well better powders so couldn't really over do the coating. When I switched to Prismatic Powders I found it would really build up a coat....

    Some years ago I picked up an old Vaquero in 38-40W/40S&W that had sat on a shelf at a LGS for so long it had dust bunnies in the cylinder. Apparently no on was interested in the gun because of the 'odd' caliber and did not know it came with 2...

    I make my own gas checks (thank you PatMarlins) both conventional and plain base (soda can) checks. It is all a part of the hobby. I have been powder coating for 5 years now, and have been shooting many high pressure plain base boolits without...

    I used a Lee 10lb pot for 3 decades. The heating element failed. I bouts a new heating element and fixed it. I also installed an angle bracket to support the weight of the lead pot which greatly improved the pot. As far as maintenance, I clean the...

    I use a large spoon to scoop my sprue from the folded towel. I intend to modify a large spoon to have a slot to pry the sprue plate open rather than use a gloved hand. I also use the large spoon to inspect the boolits before placing them into the...

    I started out casting the Lyman 225-415 and using Carnuba Red from White Label. Running 14.5 grains of 4227 was getting me 2250fps and full cycling of a Ruger 180 model Mini 14. This is a 14" (with a muzzle brake welded and pinned to make it 16")...

    Hickock45 of YouTube fame, loaded and shot 45acp loaded with BP from his Glock. Granted, he had to use 4f and it really fouled the piece, but it fired. 3f did not cycle the Glock. Lots of smoke from a full mag, fun to watch!
