    RogerDat replied to a thread Lots of Ammo!!!!!! in Rimfire Area
    Well since it is the only ammo I can't reload stash of .22 is always finite. I can take Unique, 4198, and Varget which will load whatever else I need but not the .22's Still not willing to spend more than 5 cents and would prefer the 4.5 cents...

    Well if it is the basis for a new press to replace existing that may be their motivation for not painting it red. So people will know it is the "new" and "improved" model :-) Also will confuse newbies in a few years when they find all the archive...

    RogerDat replied to a thread How Phat is ur Can ? in Gas Checks
    Well the airline doesn't try to charge me extra for my seat width so by that measure I have a small can. By any other eh? Not so much. There is an aluminum roof flashing available at ACE Hardware that Pat has posted about. Probably the cheapest...

    My EZ Prime is steel, that one looks like cast. Not sure if it matters or not. But my primer cup base is smooth and machined looking the one in the picture looks cast. What if anything does it have going for itself? Other than being "new".

    At $4 per pound it should come with flowers and chocolates. The swapping and selling forum here is the best semi-commercial source outside of a good deal found locally. And in the case of some things such as WW lead the offerings in S&S forum...

    Being off press encourages checking visually and weighing is less of an "extra step" since you have a charged case already in your hand. Bit harder to check dumps on a turret press mounted powder throw. And is a break of rhythm to pull case to...

    RogerDat replied to a thread Texting question in Our Town
    Even so called "dumb" flip phones can text. You press number keys to cycle to the letter. So W is pressing 9 once, X is pressing 9 twice, Y is pressing 9 three times, and Z is pressing it 4 times, then back around to W. Don't recall if the #9 is...

    The larger the primer the greater the probability dear wife will set it off with a vacuum if you don't find it.

    I see what I think is some wisdom in using commercial ammo for SD, legal reasons if nothing else and removes any doubt about what performance will be like. Where my titegroup load is different than my unique load a box of commercial will have a...

    You could stake them as the military does but I'm not actually going to advocate using a punch on brass right at the edge of a live primer. Just pointing out that is how one could make the primer a tighter fit.

    I had a slotted spoon that I ground the tip flatter so I could get the bottom better and get the corner of spoon into corner of pot where bottom and side meet. Use paint stir sticks some also. They tend to burn up pretty fast, especially with...

    With things such as picture frames or the frogs where hitting it with a torch it seems to melt like pewter/tin. Fast melt, smooth flow etc. but lacks the pewter stamp I treat it as solder instead of pewter. Goes in to the box with scrap solder of...

    My wife's car was totaled last winter and the driver at fault had Geico. I must say that the process went ok, we were offered fair value for the car, her medical was paid, and we got a rental of our choice. I had to be very direct a couple of times...

    The stuff I have was gunned as 5% Sn only difference is I have 11A15A "H" after it rather than "Body" Pretty sure I used some as a 1/2 part of the plain lead in 50/50 plain/COWW to give me about 1.25% Sn for revolver bullet casting. 1 part 5%...

    My first thought was "Body" solder. I think I have a bunch of thin rods that are stamped 11A15A will have to check. I know I had that stuff tested so if it has the same numbers I'll know what it might well be.

    Pewter has a bunch of different mixes, so I'm guessing the range of BHN is pretty wide. I too picked up a small platter for $1.50 no pewter hallmark I could find but soft enough I could nick with thumbnail, soldered on handles, and with a very...

Scrap.... because all the really pithy and emphatic four letter words were taken and we had to describe this way of getting casting material somehow.
