    A few days ago I deleted all of my photos and albums from Photobucket and then deleted my entire account. Had to laugh when I got an email from PB today that said "some of the features of your account will no longer function" ... really? :lol:

    Sorted through another big pile of fired brass and another batch will go into the ss pin tumbler tomorrow. Sorted a bunch of odds and ends of junk ammo that was donated to the cause and will pull it all down to salvage the brass and bullets (plus I...

    Well, yesterday I got the email from Photobucket advising that I had been using 3rd party hosting of my pictures and they wanted to hold me to ransom to continue to allow it. Finished deleting ALL of my PB pictures and then closed the account. ...

    I have 8 Chip McCormick Shooting Star stainless steel magazines for my old Series 70 Colt Government Model that I must have bought 30 + years ago and they have never, ever let me down. 100% reliable. Best investment I ever made.

    Transferred about half of my photos from Photobucket last night, but it started running so slow I gave up mid way through. Probably all of the heavy traffic of folks like me closing their accounts. So far Imgur is quick, easy, no drama, no...

    Mine were by the "shake and bake" method. I use my old vibratory tumbler with black airsoft BB's and tumble for about 2 minutes then bake in my toaster oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. (Takes about 5 minutes to get the boolits up to temperature...

    When this issue came up I switched to Imgur and like it. No advertising, no pop-ups, no drama. I'll slowly but surely upload my photos to Imgur and then delete them all from PB. Their loss for getting FAR too greedy and it'll be interesting to...

    Pointing the muzzle straight up into the air yields a case that is pretty much square to the chamber, while cases fired horizontally tend to end up being a bit "lop sided" and not square to the chamber. Plus it's fun to watch the shredded toilet...

    I typically use about 6.0 to 8.0 grains of fast shotgun or pistol powder (I've been using Nitro 100 lately since I have a quantity of that) a quarter sheet of toilet tissue over the powder charge, bulk yellow cornmeal up to the case mouth, and then...

    I powder coated some sabot slugs too, but mostly just did it for a lark. I wondered if they might be visible when in flight and act sort of like a "tracer" slug round? I haven't loaded them yet to test them and find out though ...

    Funny, I had the identical 10 cavity Cramer wadcutter mould about 20 years ago. I traded it at a gun show for a Lee Enfield No. 5 Jungle Carbine (that has now also gone the way of the Dodo). I do still have two other Cramer moulds left though, a 5...

    I have 3 of the 80's issue stainless steel 624's and love both the guns and the cartridge. If you could find either the old Lyman / Ideal 429348 (180 grain) or 429352 (245 grain) they cast a nearly cylindrical, flat topped, target wadcutter in .44...
