    Last time wife brought home pewter I checked the tin price, it was 10.60 per pound at that point. So I was aiming to stay under 5$ per pound my cost. I got lucky, she brought home 6.25 pounds for 11$ cost. And I am one happy camper. And I...

    I have noticed that cast bullets either lubed or unlubed seem to turn dark gray more slowly in sealed containers compared to ones open to the air. So lately everything is getting lubed and locked down.

    Lol, i can easily see myself coming to that same conclusion...at least for about 90% of my air gun shooting. I'd like to have at least one good pcp rifle in the closet too though.

    Cast is definitly on my mind, which is why i like the long chambers in the mag on the sumatra, or just trying roundballs in the recluse. The recluse is more for strickly hunting in my mind because of the limited shot count...takes lots of air for...

    I'm kind of torn between the recluse in 357, or the Sumatra in 25 cal. Lately though, I've been leaning back towards the marauder in 25 cal. I'm still in the research mode on all of it.

    I got started a long long time ago. Friend of mine ran a shoe repair shop with some sporting goods, fishing tackle, guns and ammo on the side. He sold me a dandy Rem 788 in .243 win. But all you could find for ammo was 80 or 100 grain soft...

    You familiar with Kydex? Pretty easy to form that stuff. I suspect you could add clips to a slide on model pretty easy with just a couple of strips a half inch wide and a couple of rivets.

    Glad to hear your getting set up the way you want it. You'll probably get a lot of fun out of it and shoot more to boot. You've still got the pump for a back up. I've been looking hard at the recluse for a while now, but lately have been looking...

    Lots have fallen to the dark side. I am resisting yet. I still think I "enjoy" the shooting more when i "Earn" each shot with some effort cocking or pumping. Call me crazy.

    I keep maybe 100 of my most often used cast, lubed with BLL, ready to load in cheap plastic food storage boxes. But most of mine are either holding as COWW ingots, range scrap ingots, or loaded ammo in 100 round MTM boxes. And there are some...

    When you live in Paradise, there are some hidden costs. Being that far from the rest of the United States, shipping is I suspect a very real cost for you. Now you could probably live for 1/3 of what it costs you over there here in North...
