    I had several people bring me rifles with Limbsaver pads that got Sticky sitting in there safe. I mean, like Melted. Probably from their cleaning oils or products. I heard that Limbsaver has corrected the problem, But have not heard back from the...

    LAGS replied to a thread PMC 7.62x51 M80 ball in Military Rifles
    I still have 6 or 7 boxes of the PMC M80 I bought when I bought my HK 91 back in 79. I liked the stuff, and it was Boxer primed. I am still reloading the cases from the rest of the lot of ammo I bought at the same time. Some have had like 15...

    The "More Molds" method is the safest and best method. But I was once a newby and poor, and was on a limited budget and space. So I offer the methods that I feel can be used by people in the same boat so to speak. But the biggest factor is...

    The reason I desregard the Tin in WW is because tests have shown that it is not a constant Percentage between Brands, Year of Manufacture or Size. I would rather be a tad over on the tin and get a good mold fill out. But I dont factor in the extra...

    When I am casting ingots, I take an old towel and fold it up several layers thick and get it wet to the point that if is not letting water run out, but will let water come out if you press on it really hard, and I set it in an old aluminum baking...

    Try Curved Nose Hemostats to place your Shake and bake boolits on your baking tray. I took a dremmel tool to mine and sharpened the edge to reduce contact on the boolit and it fits in the Lube groove on the boolit. I also use them to transfer the...

    Smoke is correct about the 6.4 is 2% of the 20 pounds of other material. BUT. Everyone forgets that WW's have .5% of tin in them. That would raise your Tin Percentage by .8 ounces. It aint much, and I too disregard the tin percentage in the WW's

    I think that 2% of 15 lbs is 2100 grains of tin 15 lb X 7000 grains per pounds = 105000 grains. 105000grains X .02 = 2100 grains Devide the 2100 gr by 437.5 (grains per ounce). or by 7000 gr to get pounds that equals .3 pounds that is 4.8 Oz...

    Put some cold bluing on a degreased spot inside the muzzle of the barrel with a cotton swab. A chrome lined barrel will not turn dark.

    The Numbers can be raised on the stock and then sanded out and restamped using steam or an Iron and wet towel. So there is a chance you can have something that LOOKS Original, but just Re- Armored.which many of the rifles were at the end of the war.

    A good coating Of JPW and it should be ok. It wont get handled much. But if you want, At Home, try to Slow Rust Blue it, Or even Dura Bake it. Lots of options based on your needs

    @ rancher1013 That is easy. You melt some known lead, then add the Range scrap to it. The Lead should melt fairly quickly If you have the pot at 700 degrees. Then skim off anything that doesnt melt right away. But dont wait too long, or the...

    You can always Lap out a Lyman 314299 to .316 using a Cherry made out of Zinc cast in the same mold. Steel will take a little longer, but I do it with aluminum molds all the time.

    They dont make Car radio antenas like that any more. But the junk yards are probably full of them. And who else would buy a Used Rusted Radio antena. I bet they would give them away.

    Question. Using the push rods as a barrel or barrel liner for a smooth bore is a great idea. But what about the length. They are not rifled so they can't work for a pistol. And they would have to be sectioned together to make them long enough to...

    A .410 is the ideal Garden Gun with the exception of the muzzle report. The smaller calibers are a lot quieter and more friendly for small gardens in populated areas.

    The whole basis for making the .410's out of old .303's was not to have more .410 casings, ( I have plenty of them and a MEC loader in that caliber ). It was to practice my skills on forming other casings out of Junk, and make them work in...

    That is what I did the first few times. Practice your new skills first on something else that isn't worth much or can be easily replaced. But you will never hone your skills if you never try new things.
