    That is exactly my first handgun. Bought it at a pawn shop and couldn't take it home until my dad had time to sign for it (I wasn't old enough). I would pay almost any amount to have that gun back. Buy it now !!

    C-dubb started a thread Old Hornady 270 in Vintage Ammo
    I have 4 boxes of Hornady 270 ammo. The price tag on it says $6.95 so I would guess that it is a few years old. Is it worth anything or should I shoot it up ?

    C-dubb replied to a thread Soy Wax in Boolit Lube !
    The main reason I want to use soy wax is the fact that I can get a few hundred pounds for free. That gives me some incentive to make it work :) I also keep bees but my wife claims most of it for candles and keeps giving it away to her friends.

    Guess I should have said that I plan to use it mostly for smokeless in both rifle and pistol.

    C-dubb started a thread Soy Wax in Boolit Lube !
    Have been looking into making my own lube and mentioned this to my son who is a mechanical engineer at a local soy bean refinery. He says that he can get me a large amount of soy wax at a very low price and brought me a sample. I have read that...

    Easier to drop the bullet in the hole than to center it on the peg and guide it in.

    Picked up an old Pacific press a while back at a local auction for $8.00 and decided that it would be perfect to mount upside down as a sizing press. So...after a little scrubbing, paint, and some scrap oak I have a nice little boolit sizing press...

    Only stuck cases I ever got was with One Shot. After I read the instructions and realized that you need to let it dry a few minutes, I never had another stuck case. I just stand the brass in a block and spray at a downward angle from front and back....

    The beeswax is not a problem (I keep bees) just trying to find an easy to find, cheap ingredient to mix with it to make a decent lube.

    So what would I use to mix up some NRA lube ? The Lee liquid would be pretty costly even if my beeswax is free.

    When I was young and dumber, I would hot rod my 30-30 loads and put spitters in them and then carry one in the tube and one in the chamber. Took a couple of whitetails at 200+ yards. Now that I'm old and not quite as dumb, I use the appropriate...
