    I'm using a Coleman 2 burner camping stove fired off propane with a small cast iron pot for casting with no problems. I only have to use one burner and a small steel ladle for the lead. The second burner is covered with a piece of sheet metal which...

    I finished making my first batch of home made black powder, ended up with about four pounds of screened 2F which looks like it works great. Haven't been able to get out to the range cause I'm stuck in the Florida summer weather pattern where it...

    I'm still using my Speer #9 as reference for most of my reloads. Just found load data in it for my 7.7 Jap using a 100 grain carbine bullet (I know it's a condom bullet) which looks like a lot of fun.

    I resize 30-06 to 7.7x58 Jap and have found that running the brass into the die most of the way, backing it out and spinning it about a 1/2 turn then finish resizing it helps a lot with shoulder dents. That one looks like too much lube as was said...

    I've a 50/50 mix of bees wax and olive oil for a minnie ball lube. It has worked well for some other minnie balls that came with the rifle and I'll try it with 465 grain ones.

    Here's a picture of the Minnie balls. I tossed them on a scale and found that they weigh in at about 465 grains instead of 530 grains. Wondering what starting load I should try, have a lot of 3F Geox but only a 1/2 lb of 2F. Hope they shoot well,...

    Rusty, The show was at the Volusia County Fair Grounds just off 44 east of Deland. They have it about every three months, it's not very big but a lot of fun to walk through and occasionally I find a good deal (something I can't live without). Lots...

    I was over at the local gun show today and got a small score of 75 .58 caliber 530 grain minnie balls for only four dollars. Don't know what mold they came out of but they look like a good tight fit in my Navy Arms Buffalo Hunter in .58 caliber....

    I ended up with about a dozen of the red "speed loaders" in a box of BP stuff that came with a .58 caliber Buffalo Hunter. Some were still loaded with 40 grains of powder and a 530 grain minnie ball. Thought they were a home made idea using...

    Red cedar works for me, Walmart lizard bedding sounds like a plan, just check for any lizards. I'm too far south for TOH.

    I've used red cedar and Carolina Willow so far, both are fast growing which seems to be one of the main criteria for CC making. Dogwood is pretty slow growing and is a hardwood, don't think it will fill the ticket for CC. Track down some willow, it...
