    I have 3 of the Sharpshooter molds and would liked to have had one or 2 more. Of them all the worst is the 00/#4 combo mold. That pig just does not like to work. If I use the hot plate to preheat I can eventually get usable buckshot out of it. ...

    This is where you went wrong. "Factory rounds made the muzzle flip up at least 4". Buy a muzzle brake, stick it on then put the gun away while we prepared to move. " First I don't think I would have bothered with a muzzle break for 4" of...

    Picked up a 1377 at Walmart today. I've been researching it and the 1322 for months. My brother in Co. called the other day to say he had bought one, and that was the final straw. I love my 392, but i have to say, if i'd bought this first, i may...

    Agree with country gent. You want that knob on there for a LONG time, use epoxy. Any cheap 5 min epoxy, put a smear on the rod and a smear in the hole. Thread together, wipe off excess, set it overnight and done. If you are fussy about the...

    Sir, glad to hear you still have all your parts. Don't get me wrong, if you want to do it, and your gun lets you do it and get away with it, that's fine. Just please don't do it within 50 yards of me or anyone I care about. And bear in mind,...

    I have never done that. Have you ever considered, that chamber is cut to hold the loaded hull. But after the crimp opens the barrel is reduced. What happens if you try to "ring" a shell and it gets partway down the bore and sticks? Or runs into...

    Keep working on it Don. My wife and I have been married for 21 years. You can really get to know someone in that time. A while back we found we were both guilty of taking our pain, frustration, anger out on the other. It has taken a...

    It really does help to be polite, say Please, thank you. Sir and Ma'am. I bought a Hipoint C9 pistol from a pawn shop. After looking at the pistol and doing some research I figured out something was wrong with the mag release button. Called em...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Lead tape in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Do-it are by far my favorite molds for fishing sinkers. I have both a split shot and a walking sinker mold. Walking sinker in 1/8th oz sizes from 1/8th to 1 oz and does not skip many in the middle. Mostly I use the 1/2 oz and 5/8ths for...

    I have polished out a Lee push through size die with just a dowel and a piece of fine grit sandpaper. Does not take long and I think there is a sticky on the process. Main thing is to check often. Hard to put it back on evenly.

    Yes, I have been using BLL on ALL of my bullets, both tl and conventional with no issues. As I am not a user of 45/45/10 I can not speak definitively to those questions. But for me, why I put JPW in my BLL, Carnuba. 2-3 % is an awesome bore...

    .444marlin in a single shot is a thing of joy. Yes Martini action would be awesome. I think my H&R is a 1 in 14, I could be wrong. It could be as fast as 1 in 10. Avoid the slow twists if you want to shoot large bullets. They won't...

    I'd say Gavin's tooling found a good home. I've been using Sage's 35 cal. al. checks for my whelen since he came out with them, and they're top notch.

    Ghost hawk, I like the sound of the hammer scopes, and told my brother about them. He has a Hatsan 95 in .22 cal.j I'm thinking of the bug buster scope for the Benji, because it's so short. I'm hoping I can get my hand in front of it to pump in...
