    I would say it would depend on the variables. With the right variables they could be no problem at all. With the wrong ones you might see some leading. Alloy? Hardness? Air cooled or water drop? Load? Powder? Pushing them hard or light...

    Was at the local Mill's Fleet Farm buying cat litter and a couple of new Columbia fleece shirts. They had several powders in stock so I stocked up a little bit. Pound of Blue Dot to play with in heavy shotgun loads and some CCI small pistol...

    Good luck! On the lower cost side I've had good luck with the medium quality Shakespeare reels. My favorites do tend to be Shimano mid sized with rear drag. Get a big fish on taking line and you can cause serious damage to fingers with...

    My problem with the .45/.410 is that it is neither fish, nor fowl nor good red meat. Accuracy with the .45's is going to be marginal from all the reading I have done. Long long jump to the rifling. And with the .410 with shot you have rifling...

    Love the looks of that X patch system. I have been shooting some #1 buckshot in my Rem Rolling Block chambered in .32sw long no powder just primer. That x patch would give me better results I'm thinking. Been shooting them at a cardboard box...

    If you are doing it right, 2 or more thin barely visible coats it will dry fully, harden to a hard shell finish that won't move with heat. It just bakes harder. If it is pure alox running in gobs, it might. But I don't think it would cause any...

    I'm with gpidaho, and loving the .444marlin handi rifle I bought on a whim for 210$. Brass took a while to find, but it was not that hard to come by, just need to accept that you will pay 50 cents or better a piece. At least in the .444 it...

    Talk to the guys selling bait. They know what works and where, sometimes when.

    Me too. He's one of 3 people here that I buy from at the drop of a hat if I need lead. Decent prices, perfect packaging, quick service, no hassles. Does not get any better than that in my book.

    I agree Biggen. If that gets your undies in a bunch you got bigger troubles. Stop tugging and unwind.

    I have been using it in a thin layer on my sprue plates. Keeps the lead from sticking and no more rust. Just warm it up good so it evaporates and bakes on. BLL works best of course if applied to the boolits and shot down the bore. Leaves...

    Could be different for every person here. Let that sink in a second. Myself, I use them pretty much interchangeably. But if I had to put a definition on it. All "boolits" that I posses, were made by me. Cast of lead, swaged, hammered,...

    I don't have either but if I did I would reload for them. I do have a pair of .32sw long revolvers by H&R which I love reloading for. Love shooting also. 2 grains of Red Dot and a nice shiny cast .314 90 gr truncated cone bullet. Nice mild...

    Well I was working on my own, have a small externally fired unit from ebay with 6 double droppers. Jet type fish fryer underneath for the heat, no issues there. Being an old bullet caster, I had found my own solution for lead sticking to sprue...

    I have a handi rifle in .444marlin that is one of my 2 best shooters of all my guns. According to the FAQ over at GBO twist rate is ".444 Marlin 1:20" I do tend to load mine quite light. .44mag moderate loads essentially in .444marlin brass. ...

    I simply use the Promo in the shotgun reloader. Red Dot all gets either run through a powder measure with weights checked regularly or dipper. If I am using dippers I often weigh every load. May cost me a few cents but avoids confusion. I...

    I don't see good works as a prerequisite. But if you had 2 neighbors both ask you for help. You going to help the one you have had a quarrel with recently? Or the one who has been helping you? I do believe he takes care of his own first. ...
