    Check the tin content. 50 years ago COWW were that hard. They had a lot of arsenic in them too. Even in the open back yard you could smell it everywhere, it gave me headaches every time I smelted. 5 cents a pound was the going rate and you could get...

    I have a M&P 9. The throat was .355. It would not take my .357 PCed cast. Luckily DougGuy was able to open up the throat on mine. No leading, and it shoots great. The PC should not be shaved off if the throat does not have a sharp edge. If it...

    farmerjim replied to a thread Small tractor in Our Town

    farmerjim replied to a thread Indoor range fees? in Our Town
