    I have to agree with Roger. Started out with next to nothing. Sitting on a fair stash, somewhere in the 3-400 lbs area, but I am not shooting near as much as I was either.

    In the last 2 years I have bought 150 lbs of COWW smelted, in muffin ingots, in 5 gal bucket, delivered to my door. Paid a dollar a pound and felt like a real winner. For wheel weights in a bucket my max would probably be 45 or 50 cents per...

    I have been looking for a pistol with 6" barrel that would shoot either the .32 H&R or the .327 fed. I have yet to find one that appeals to me enough to pry the cash out of my pocket. I have a pair of H&R Revolvers, 732,733 2.5 inch barrels...

    now, I haven't even tried cast in my ar, yet, but wouldn't COWW's with just a bit of lino, heat treated or quenched, be hard enough ( considering the use of a gas check)?

    Red Dot because A it works. B moderate loads 4-7 grains perform very well. Plus are very accurate. As compared to a rifle load of slow powder at 50+ grains. C Red Dot is my go-to powder for most things. Not my SKS's favorite, but everything...

    I have Hipoint carbines in 9mm, .40sw and .45acp. .40 was first, dropped a 60$ Red Dot on it and loved it. Wife loved it, but wanted one that "bumped her shoulder less". Enter the first 9mm (had 2, both used, let a shooting buddy rob me of one) ...

    I have Hipoint Carbines in 9mm, .40sw, and .45acp. Of the three I think I like the .45acp the best. I have handi rifles in .357mag, .44mag, 9mm and .45colt. .357 is dang accurate, frankly none of them suck. .45colt is fun but so are the...

    I have also had good luck with the dollar store fabric softener. I would start with aprox 75% softener and 25% water. Look at your shot and adjust as needed. Rinses clean quickly and easily with cold water. (Garden hose)
