    You should be casting & shooting it sooner to avoid this problem. If you can't do that, keeping the air away from the lead is about all else you can do. Sealed storage, painting, powder coating, something like that.

    Good job! Just a guess, but you're probably right, that size is probably marketed to commercial reloaders and manufacturers. I'd save the empty cartons. They'd make a great waste basket for the man cave.

    Yeah. It's evolved into some sort of inclusive generic term like 'cake', 'casserole', 'hot sauce', or 'cookies'. However; 'all probably very good' might be a bit of a stretch, or open for debate.:bigsmyl2: For example, whip yourself up some...

    The marine epoxy will work great, but you really shoudn't need all the extra qualities it has over the regular 2 part. I put a ebony wood fore end tip on a 50's era Fajen stock I scrounged and put on my sporterized '03 20 or so years ago. It...

    I'm a big RCBS, Lyman guy. I had a bevel base wad cutter I cast for a S & W model 52 automatic that chambered .38Spec. wadcutters flush with the case mouth. A buddy got a very well used Lee double end wadcutter mold at a garage sale for a dollar...

    I have a couple of those Chinese ones from Wal-Mart. I soon realized why they were so cheap. Over the years I've snagged 4 of the old school American made gold miner's lamps from the cowboy days made by Deitz. They are still in production...

    Masa Harina is sort of like cornmeal made from hominy. Its ground up corn, but like hominy, its been soaked/treated with lime water. That's why corn tortillas and tamales look like cornmeal, but taste different. Of the real Mexicans I know,...

    I wouldn't have any problem the magnum pistol primers in cast loads for a rifle. Anything that shows a very small pressure sign with standard rifle primers- I'd try a few to be sure, but the magnum pistols ones should be fine. For your...

    It pains me to see some of these Yankee recipes where the word 'chili' is so abused and desecrated. This thread reminded me of the first Mother in Law who was born & raised in Baltimore. We were up there one time and she made (what they referred...

    Never had that happen. I like the Redfield system and the rings that the clamping screw comes up from underneath. I've also put them on Leupold bases, and they went right on.

    If you're putting more spicy things in Carol Shelby's kit,,,, give Wick Fowler's 2 Alarm chili a try. Make it thick without the beans & such, grab some of the large diameter flour tortillas, toss on some shredded cheese, a bump of sour cream,...

    I've tried & made bunches of them. But I keep coming back to Carol Shelby's mix/kit in the box at the grocery store and use double the meat. Wick Fowler's 2 Alarm chili kit from the grocery store is good too, but its not for the meek. You...

    Looks good. We used to do a recipe similar to that and put in a can of whole beets, liquid from the can & all. And, you could use the solution 2-3 times by just putting in more hard boiled eggs. A word of caution if you're not single: Don't...

    I've gotten a few over the years at the local hardware store for about a buck or two. The ones here still sell the kerosene lamps and indoor use oil for them too.

    Even with those young, kid eyes, I couldn't do it. At Parris Island, we trained with the M-14. We were taught- Sight picture was achieved by concentrating on the front sight (clear image), and the rear sight was expected to be 'fuzzy'.

    For hunting and basic target shooting, a 4 or 6 power should do fine. Everybody has gone crazy for super high magnification, but it has drawbacks when not on a bench. Your field of view is cut way down, it often takes longer to acquire a moving...
