    Glad yo got it worked out. I shake mine with a lid on the container to allow it to get some good coverage before the solvent evaporates. It gives me a smooth finish, if you let it evaporate too much, it gets all rough. As far as i'm aware, if you...

    Congrats indeed. Even better that he did it with his own cast projectiles. I really need to try and make time to do some real IPSC shooting, all I do now is one club level match i run with a mad mate once a month.

    Awesome job on being the first to pass the tests. I never thought of a bow being powerful enough to take down deer or moose, but that's what they used to use many years ago for taking them down for food. That's the thing, the politicians say...

    Sadly over here, both are not allowed to be shot in the back yard. They have even made crossbows licensed as far as i was aware. If it's fun, the government wants to take it away from us....

    My parents have the exact same issue with possums and wallabies, they are cute, but eat EVERYTHING. I built walls around gardens with tin roofing so they had nothing to grab on to, it keeps the wallabies out, but not the possums and rats. Tried...

    In Melbourne, temperature can change hourly, hot to cold, or anything in between. Not sure it's 1 40f swing though. In brisbane, we never get below 2c, and maximum of about 42c, so a swing of about 70f over an entire year, not a daily change like...

    I have been lucky enough to not be sprayed with Hi-Tek per se, yet i did manage to knock over some that I was just starting to dissolve, 40 grams of powder and a bout 50 ml of acetone was in before i managed to knock it over and hit the floor, so it...

    So very true. I get the same pressure build up when coating woth a closed container. Shake shake, carefully open to let the pressure out then seal and finish shaking, then dump out

    Thank you for the specs you have, it looks like only one image worked though. now it makes sense why it has a higher production rate, 10 moulds! Sure puts my automated master caster to shame, as it has only one mould :(

    Good to hear you beat it and are still with us. I like the 1911 STIs, the only thing i didn't like was our 10 round limit, getting a full mag to lock in on a closed slide could be a struggle. The 2011 takes care of this with it's double stack...

    The tool-less guide rod is awesome, i have one in mine. The hard chrome will be a great addition. Good way to take up any wear that it may have too.

    I totally agree, lighter means you can move and stop faster on target. I never thought about the slide forward movement, i only thought about the recoil pulling the muzzle upwards, but it makes complete sense. I must have been lucky with mine, i...

    Did you find the lightning helped much? I have a 2011 executive, it has a bull barrel, quite heavy but it does pretty well with controlling recoil. I find a mad mates glock bounces around a fair bit, i suspect because it's lighter. I can see it...

    I have indeed been busy, but the commercial boys will have way more than that up their sleeve :) I remember the issues you had with your toaster oven, shame it caused so many issues, but at least you worked it all out.

    You can try CBE in Australia: http://www.castbulletengineering.com.au/bullet-moulds/pistol/35-and-9mm-calibre?Page=2&Items=12 You will probably need to get them machined to fit your machine though. Worth asking their advise.
