    georgerkahn replied to a thread Lost money order in Our Town
    This thread has been an "eye opener" to me. I have had, on two occasions, personal cheques I posted not received in a timely period. One was for less than ten dollars for a piece of sheet music eBayed from a seller in New Hampshire -- this before...

    Omega -- I had same fear/thoughts re that 2nd primer. BUT -- I reckoned it takes a hit to primer's center to snap anvil which creates the explosion; the pressure on said 2nd primer was the FLAT driver of tool; and, its pressure was concentrated...

    Here is a "what I've seen used -- NOT necessarily what should be used" -- be warned :) ! Two friends of mine use an auto grease called MolyGraph which they buy in cartridge form at the local Harbor Freight. With the moly, it supposedly is good to...

    In the midst of a loading session with my RL550b press, the shell holder could not be turned/advanced. "Huh?" It turns out I tried to put a (large pistol) primer in a (.44 S&W Special) case which already had one in it. I did not now if I had put...

    Reading the wonderful posts, I have a question. To wit, I wash and rewash all new moulds with Dawn detergent in warm water, scrubbing with a toothbrush, followed by copious water rinsing. They then get handles attached and placed on my G.E....

    I had the Lyman brand mould guides on both of my Mold-Master Lyman bottom-pour pots, using them with no negatives. Two things happened, though, to wit I gained a few more candles on my birthday cakes, and, the Lymans were updated to a RCBS Pro-Melt...

    My thoughts include the 2nd Amendment does guarantee our right; ***BUT*** our government appears to have the right to regulate. Note the 1934 NFA; the 1968 GCA; and myriad of additional -- e.g., the Bump- ban recently enacted. More frightening to...

    I've had very similar, but my lead chunks were in plastic "sheet rock mud" buckets, so heating them was not doable. Instead, I fired up the smelting pot (1/2 Freon tank from DavyCrockett on this site)), grabbing each piece with a set of tongs which...

    The wife of a close friend was putting air in one of her low auto's tires, and the portable air tank fragmented! The shrapnel from this tank took the meat -- e.g, skin, muscles, and all - from her wrist to elbow on her left arm. She was most...

    As one who often feels frustration -- I do feel for you. You are not doing anything "wrong" -- perhaps my best way of suggesting a remediation might be for you to Google, "cake cutter bullet lub". I personally, take an expanded shell a smidgen...

    Purchase question: This sounds like a "plus" -- EXCEPT, for me, I need keep those two Allen screws your springs replace quite tight, to keep powder measure in place, op rod in line, and all in all, less "wobbly". I'd think of the springs were heavy...

    The sling (#6) so very much resembles the one which came on an H&R Reising WWII vintage Model 65 .22 caliber machine gun trainer rifle. There's absolutely no guarantee that mine was the issued/original sling on my Reising -- but, for what it's...

    Not certain vis the DW Model 13, but, for their 15 series you can put barrel/shroud combos on the frame from two inch to 15 inch barrels. And, from what I hear, they are inherently accurate firearms. A fellow at range has a DW case, their "Pistol...

    georgerkahn replied to a thread question on air tanks, in AirGuns
    Just as a possible alternative... When indoor (gunpowder-propelled) shooting became verboten at a club I belong to, the alternative was to switch to -- for winter shooting -- PCP air rifles. My choice, which I *do* regret maybe 2% or 3% ;), was to...

    For my RELOADING presses, I spray/clean rams with G96 on an old piece of cotton toweling. The caps' was intentional, as maybe 15 years ago it dawned on me that 90%+ of all dirt came from the decapping process. I picked up an old Pacific single...

    I bought my RL550b in October of 1991 -- God knows how many times I operated the handle. Well, today I had perhaps my 2nd or 3rd failure in 27 years -- apparently the cast aluminum piece which hold the roller the powder measure gets actuated by...
