    Zinc won't wear your barrel and you don't need lube coating or paper patching. Slug your bore and size to groove diameter.

    Purchase poultry fence, not poultry netting. Poultry fence is wrapped wire just like cattle fencing, just a thinner gauge. Small spaces, roughly one inch for the first six inches, then progressively larger as you go up. With proper posts, and a net...

    To have less air space, resize .45 ACP brass in a steel .44 sizer. Carbide might work, but I'm not that brave or well off enough to try. Size all the way to the rim. A vise will probably be required and you'll have to pound them out of the die. You...

    There is a 39 acre Natural Area, behind the houses across the street. One morning I saw six deer in my back yard. Beautiful sight. We've had turkeys in the back yard eating berries and seeds. Again, beautiful. The drawback is that for some...

    dbosman replied to a thread Cleaning casting pot in Cast Boolits
    I empty mine periodically, by pouring out all but a tiny bit of alloy, then, while hot, inverting it over my rendering container. That leaves only the tiny bit inside the spout.

    My suspicion is that the donor grabbed the wrong container. That said, I've had lead that wouldn't melt due to all the dirt on the outside. I had to cut it apart and melt it from the inside. I was left with dirt tubes floating on the melt.

    I love that someone here knows just about anything. Now I understand why my "silver solder" doesn't work and the Oatey does. I acquired a roll of Welco #5 when we bought our house in 1992, probably at a thrift shop. I had several copper pipes to...

    A question. Do you have enough metal on hand to make a large enough batch so it's consistent through your up coming testing? i.e. I can only handle 50 lbs in my rendering pot. Yes, that's roughly 2000 boolits, which is a lot for me, but for some...
