    I can say for a fact that I had my shot dripping ladle setup, running smooth with COWW. Did not want to use up all my wheel weights so I started filling with range scrap and pure lead. When it got to where it was mostly full of melted pure the...

    I'm with Exile, I've seen prayers answered. Both in my own life and in others. I don't pray much or often for myself. My wife, friends, extended family, yes even strangers here or on other forums. I do try hard to remember to thank the lord...

    https://www.ballisticproducts.com/Sale-Wads/products/768/ 8$ for 250. You can move up to trap wads which run about 10$ for 250, or you can pay near double that for top quality field wads for hunting. Up to you, don't think you will find much...

    Loving my Beretta Model 81 in .32acp. I came to the .32's late, wish I'd wised up quicker.

    Even better than oil is a dab of imperial sizing wax on the main shaft. Lasts a lot longer too.

    I bought two which gives me a total of 3. The little nylon holster has a spot for a spare mag above the pistol. That gives me 24 with a single mag swap. All 3 seem to work fine at the range.

    I have to admit I was shocked when I saw how tight groups got and how quickly I adjusted to a red dot sight on my Ruger Mk III 22/45's. Wife's was first, then I was able to find a dovetail mount and put a rail on my older Stainless ruger. So old...

    According to the federal government air rifles are not firearms. They can even be sold with a suppressor (fixed) with no paperwork or tax stamp. However, I would call your local LEO and game warden to verify and find out exactly what is and what...

    I'm with Winger Ed. I see no need to replace primers. And I have recycled bullets. I have to be careful as to source, my range does not like bullets with Steel penitrators inside. So I need to make sure I remove them from the mix. In the...

    Instead of waxed paper, save potato chip mylar bags. Cut a rectangle long enough to go around about 1 1/3rd times. It will do a better job of containing the shot, and protecting your barrel. If it is shiny silver inside it is mylar. If it is...

    Almost 6 years now on my Lee hand press. It remains my favorite for most work. Only move up to a big press if I am sizing 7.62x54r or similar. I deprime with a FA hand deprimer, prime with a pair of RCBS universal hand primers. One large, one...

    For the last 4-5 years I've been running roughly 50% COWW and 50% RS with 1% tin added. (Pewter, lino, 60/40 whatever I can find reasonable) Now I don't have a tester, I do have a pretty well calibrated thumbnail. Soft lead my thumbnail leaves...

    There has to be a major problem which is unfixable by me before I sell a gun. Now I have bought a few which did eventually end up in my shooting buddy's hands. But it is your dollar, your call.

    When it comes to linux google is your friend. Type in exactly what your problem is and spend some time reading. A few times it took a few trys, but it always got the job done.

    I wondered about the .32acp, and wondered, and thought, and looked, and wondered some more. Then I saw where Classic Firearms was selling Italian trade in Beretta Model 81's for 209$. I ponied up the bucks, added 20$ for a good looking one. Got one...

    I don't do big batch's like outpost75, but the idea is pretty much the same, only with smaller plastic container with snap on lids. Only real change I make is I like to add about 1% carnuba wax to the alox. Either straight wax flakes melted into...
