    I've had my magnum melter for a year and a half and will never look at anything else. I have mine plugged into a small electric timer that someone posted about here a long while back. Push the one hour button and I know if someone knocks on the...

    Save them until some point where you are low or out of LP primers. Or sell them as JB in Mn said. I am slowly accumulating a zip lock bag of them myself.

    IMO silvereagle nailed it. Trouble is consistency. Getting the exact same pressure, fuel, temp the same every time is going to be tough. Change any variable by any significant amount and you could be changing your trajectory. Powder is easier.

    If I size (I often do not) I have no issue running it through the sizer a bit on the sticky side. Worst case scenario is it ends up in the lube grooves. I have often sized half an hour after casting and lubing with BLL. If I am pushing for speed I...

    Bullet fit is king, worry about the other variables after you know you have that sorted. 1-3 thousandths over groove is what I aim for. Most cases 1 or 2 but a given gun needs what it needs. I have a couple of 9mm guns that get .359 or .3595...

    I'm with M-tecs, I'd pay more for a 6" barrel with adjustable rear sight. Interesting though that they see Heritage selling enough of the rough riders to make them want a piece of that action. And the Bronze

    If your lucky, it may just need a good oiling on the pump head to get it pumping again, but may well need re sealing. “Baker Airguns”, “Mac1 Airguns” might be good folks to contact if you can’t do it yourself. You can google them. Gateway to...

    5mm, it should say on the yellow ammo boxes. Halfway between .177 and .22. Should be fixable, but do some googleing first so you know what your doing. I bought my Blue Streak in the early 70's, have fired thousands of rounds through it, most...

    NWPilgrim well said IMO, and I agree. Don't bring a knife to do a saw's/axes job. Even a lightweight tomahawk will do a better job of processing firewood. Especially if it is sharp and kept that way.
