    I'll recommend a fixed rotor measure. I like my RCBS Little Dandy enough that I bought a 2nd body. I've used it with small charges of 700-x, Red Dot, Bullseye and Unique. Nothing newer.

    Was I whipped or beat? Arguably, by definition, not beaten. I attended their funerals, but I was eighty seven miles away for their last decades.

    I have a couple of hundred .38 special wad cutter cases. They do load better (finish up nice and straight, no bulge) with Hornady or Remington hollow base wad cutters, then standard brass. I wonder if the few examples of .44 and .45 canelured...

    Save some money by not buying the wasabi powder at the oriental market. Real wasabi powder isn't exported or exported anymore. What we get in the tins is dark hot mustard. Cheaper in the spice section.

    Years back, I called Lyman for press parts (that were eventually shipped with no notice or charge six weeks later) and got no where and got a run around. As I owned my own business and hoped my customers would tell me about service before doing...

    Junk silver is still expensive, but does have a face, of sorts ;-), value.

    You can call Remington to ask about availability of a specific bullet. Several are out of production. I wish they'd produce an up to date list.

    My murder mystery scenario uses .30 sabots to shoot a previously fired .22 j bullet. One that has the framee's fingerprint on it. Law would jump on the obvious finger print solution. Or not.

    You can probably use a form, but a simple will should cost in the $200. neighborhood and it will allow specific gifts, donations, declarations and retaliatory comments. Your...

    Any decent hardware store should have lead test swabs for surfaces and water test kits, in stock. Of course being in Michigan lead testing kits are easy to find. ;-)

    Ask your neighbors with kids. Peanut butter is still a staple in many families despite the bans at schools. The containers can add up fast in a family. Buying them a full jar periodically will help guarantee a supply of jars.

    A little zinc is a hardening agent. I'd rather use antimony. ;-)

    dbosman replied to a thread Tumbler media in Reloading Equipment
    Once upon a time I tried every media I could get from pet shops, "sand blasting" supplier, masonry supplier, wood shop, and SS pins. I finally settled on SS pins for serious dirt - and the shine it created, followed by drying, then dry tumbling...

    In my experience, lead expands when heated. If there are no folds or cracks in jackets or plating, there will be after there is molten lead for them to float on. Do cover the melt pot though, just in case. I'm also assuming you always start with a...

    I agree but add the decap area as well. For any disbelievers (newbies, not the majority of folks here) purchase some lead test swabs from the hardware store and swab the decap and tumbling table or floor. Normally one gets bad news.

    My hope for inexpensive single shots, is/was the Turkish shotguns (quality varies with actual manufacturer) that Walmart was selling. I wonder if those could be sleeved? For straight wall pistol calibers, in particular.
