    My understanding was you don't need to wait. As long as it's cooled off enough, you can go for another coat. I thought Ausglock mentioned that he would coat and cook an entire batch in one hit. Take a tray out and let it cool while another goes...

    I'm doomed. My spelling is shocking. My wife gives me grief about it often enough. Bring on spell check!

    Do you need to dry on mesh? The process i use for different stuff, i lay out on a sheet of laminated MDF to dry. I then collect and put on baking trays, all wearing gloves to prevent getting oil on the projectiles. It works very well for me but...

    I second that, over here we have gumtree, the American version of Craig's List. People just want them gone, so you can get lucky and get a freebee. Some places that sell appliances take old ones back as a service, you can possibly pick one up...

    Joe - i know you didn't have any ill feelings about the coating i'm using, you were just passing on your knowledge on the subject. You have far more experience with coatings than i do, so it's very good advise, i really do appreciate the time you...

    I have a LBT tester, it's a good 12 years old now, the sticker for the read out is a bit tatty, it really hasn't held up real well for the 10 odd times it has come out of the box to use. It gives consistent readings, i have not tested the numbers...

    It's very rare these days, there are far too many that don't really care about customers. I'd suspect the casting community is quite small over there, i know it is over here. If you upset the few potential customers you have, the word travels....

    That is true, not everyone needs the extra station, i know i have never used one, if i had one, then sure, i would probably use it with a factory crimp or something.

    I shoot split cases if i don't get it before reloading. They just go in my bag for practice, not comps. They can split when firing anyway, so what does it matter? There is a possibility of the gas trying to cut the chamber a bit as the case will no...
