    Was at the local Mill's Fleet Farm buying cat litter and a couple of new Columbia fleece shirts. They had several powders in stock so I stocked up a little bit. Pound of Blue Dot to play with in heavy shotgun loads and some CCI small pistol...

    Good luck! On the lower cost side I've had good luck with the medium quality Shakespeare reels. My favorites do tend to be Shimano mid sized with rear drag. Get a big fish on taking line and you can cause serious damage to fingers with...

    My problem with the .45/.410 is that it is neither fish, nor fowl nor good red meat. Accuracy with the .45's is going to be marginal from all the reading I have done. Long long jump to the rifling. And with the .410 with shot you have rifling...

    Love the looks of that X patch system. I have been shooting some #1 buckshot in my Rem Rolling Block chambered in .32sw long no powder just primer. That x patch would give me better results I'm thinking. Been shooting them at a cardboard box...

    If you are doing it right, 2 or more thin barely visible coats it will dry fully, harden to a hard shell finish that won't move with heat. It just bakes harder. If it is pure alox running in gobs, it might. But I don't think it would cause any...

    I've used it here in the South year round and have never had a problem with melting. It gets a lot hotter here than where you live. My brother lives close to you and has no such problems. He's just up the mountains a bit from Denver. I shoot at...

    I'm with gpidaho, and loving the .444marlin handi rifle I bought on a whim for 210$. Brass took a while to find, but it was not that hard to come by, just need to accept that you will pay 50 cents or better a piece. At least in the .444 it...

    Talk to the guys selling bait. They know what works and where, sometimes when.

    Me too. He's one of 3 people here that I buy from at the drop of a hat if I need lead. Decent prices, perfect packaging, quick service, no hassles. Does not get any better than that in my book.

    No worries about getting poor bullets at first. Just melt them back down, no one will know. Cast quickly to heat up your mold to temperature. Don't start inspecting your boolits until they start frosting over. Then, you can slow down your cadence....

    I put a thin coating of Alox on any metal under the wood of my deer hunting rifle. So I don't have to tear it all the way down to clean it, if it gets wet, until after the season. I'll use BLL next season because it's even thinner.

    I agree Biggen. If that gets your undies in a bunch you got bigger troubles. Stop tugging and unwind.

    I have been using it in a thin layer on my sprue plates. Keeps the lead from sticking and no more rust. Just warm it up good so it evaporates and bakes on. BLL works best of course if applied to the boolits and shot down the bore. Leaves...

    Sounds like my loading room. I'll never admit how much cool stuff I've "found" in there.

    Reamed primer pockets on ~300 more 9mm brass. I have no idea why I continue processing 9mm brass. I don't shoot it all that much. I probably have 1500 ready to load, and about 700 loaded. Add that to probably 2000 more pieces untouched. Maybe...

    Could be different for every person here. Let that sink in a second. Myself, I use them pretty much interchangeably. But if I had to put a definition on it. All "boolits" that I posses, were made by me. Cast of lead, swaged, hammered,...
