    A lot of folks don't recommend Zippos for pipes or cigars. Some recommend Everclear 190, Methanol, Moonshine, Coleman fuel So any opinions out there? Thanks

    Agreed. Last time I was in there I was trying to find a couple of the 15 or so boxes of 45ACP reloads that I think are in there. Found some cool stuff while I was looking, tho. ;-)

    goodsteel replied to a thread New to this in Casting for Shotguns
    Well I thought so. I tell you what I really want to do is to find an old SXS and send off to have some microgrooves cut 1-80 in the barrels. I think that'd be sweet as sourwood honey.

    Hey, I'm around. Just busier than a frog hoppin in a skillet. I told Brice1985 to check this out, and pay attention to longbow. Looks like I've still got it. :wink: Now I tried the 687 round balls in the shotcup, but I got far better precision...

    I have a CZ combo in 5.6x52 which is 22 Hi Power. Except the chamber is tighter. 30-30 brass is too big right in front of the rim. 25-35 work better. I found that .224 Hornady 60 grains shot better then factory S&B ammo. In my case about 1 1/4 at...
