    Why only once a year? It sounds mighty good. I have about 300 pounds of granex onions ( I can't call them Vidalia because they are grown in my field) left in my cooler, and they are starting to sprout. I am selling, giving away, and eating them as...

    "plus we have 2 CO2 detectors in the house." I bet those are CO detectors in your house and not CO2. CO ( carbon monoxide) is deadly, it attaches to the hemoglobin in your blood and bonds tight. The hemoglobin therefore can't transport oxygen...

    I do the shake and bake in an air conditioned room in my barn in the summer. No problem as the humidity is low in that room. 90% + outside.

    "I'll have to have 2 different .357 loadings, one for rifle, one for pistol!" Easy to do. Get another color Hi-Tek to identify witch load is what.

    Hi-Tek is good stuff. If the first coat is even a tiny bit too thick, it will not adhere well and will flake. If it is not 1 to 3 thousands over the bore it will lead. If everything is done correctly, it is fast and effective.

    Try Hi-Tek or powder coat, I do both, haven't lubed a boolit in years. Hi-Tek is faster, but a steeper learning curve than powder coat.

    Powder coat will add .001 to .002 to the boolit if it is too small.

    I started with a ladle and it worked fine. I got a bottom pour and wow, it is so much faster. I cast with 2 molds and keep ingots on the side in a pot on top of a single burner hotplate. This keeps them preheated to about 500. The 25 pounds of 725...

    " We normally have fairly acidic sandy loam soil here, if that helps." Asparagus like a high ph soil. 7.5 is good, 6.0 is too low. Lime the soil in the fall when they die back.
