    I used bbs with good effect for a few batches, but picking (with tweezers) about 25 of them out of the noses of some hps I was working on made me rethink my technique. I tumbled the hps without bbs and the coating looked as good as what I was...

    Faster and easier for a lot of weighing? I used to weight segregate my BPCR bullets and would often have hundreds to go through. That would take a lot of time on a beam scale. I would select one sample to be my "zero" and would tare with it every...

    This is one of the finest powder measures ever designed. Comes with one powder bottle and one drop tube. Super smooth and accurate. These measures are really a treat not only to use, but just to look at. It is like new. Sold Pending Funds....

    CPA Corp sells the Stevens 44 1/2 replicas in a variety of cartridges, .22 being one of them. Not in the same league as Henry, for sure, but very nice rifles if you can afford one. What's kinda cool about them is you can get multiple barrels and...

    I respectfully suggest you add a 7th category to your hierarchy: Cast bullet match shooter, ala BPCR, Schuetzen, Silhouette, CBA or other shooting matches. That's a really good way to get in-depth exposure.

    I have been touching the spruce to a dampened sponge for a second, once the lead has gone matte. This is something new for me, but last casting session, I went through a whole load of lead in the RCBS bottom pour and got essentially zero smearing. ...

    I gotta say, I'm surprised this is still here. If I didn't already have like 8 of them, I'd jump on it. Maybe the crowd over at ASSRA Forums would be more receptive?
