    beemer replied to a thread Whole Home Generator in Our Town
    Propane service around here is a joke. Several years ago the company delivered propane to me, my Mom and brother, all within spitting distance from each other. One was $2.75, one $3.00 and mine was $4.25, called and got a runaround. The next year...

    I traded for an almost new 17 about 30 years ago, still have it box and all. Being a revolver guy I looked at it sideways for a while but finally realized what it was. It is a simple to operate and reliable fighting pistol. I have not poured...

    Not a S & W but a Taurus 605, I replaced the main spring with a Wolf reduced power spring for S & W 36, it made a difference in the DA pull. It worked fine till I tried some ammo that my buddy had loaded with rifle primers. Someone had given him...

    I like where he said "Are you kidding me", I resemble that remark. All of us that have kept old worn out stuff running out of necessity can appreciate that video. He did a good job, my hat is off to him. I bought a used PRO MAC 10-10 in the 70's....

    I have an old Bonanza press that need larger priming hole. Years ago I had a friend open a set of Lee shell holders to fit, he had a tough time and said they were hard. If I need one I don't have I have opened up one with a Dremel tool and a round...

    I was looking at scales a while back and most of what is offered looks to be cheaper made than the older ones, probably made in China. As far as I know Ohaus doesn't make beam scales for reloaders. I believe the 505 you have is a 3 poise, that...

    beemer replied to a thread My .40 cappers in Muzzleloading.
    I bought a 42 inch Sharon barrel from Dixie in .40 back in the 70's and built my first ML. Nobody I knew had any idea about them, thought I was silly for wanting one. I did it anyway and made ALL the mistakes, forearm way to thick and heavy just to...

    beemer replied to a thread Filler in 45/70 in Cast Boolits
    I have been working with my Marlin 1895 off and on this summer. The rifle was bought new about 16-17 years ago. I worked up a load using the Lyman 457643 that was designed for lever action rifles. Ended up with 26 grs of AA5744 and a filler, shot...

    beemer replied to a thread Castor Oil in Cast Boolits
    Wish I had known that years ago, always wondered what steam oil was. In 1963 my Dad gave me a Mamod steam roller for Christmas. He bought it from Sears and Roebuck, I think it was somewhere around $25. We all waited for that big Sears Christmas...
