    Well I went to Cabelas to pick up this issue and well, not only did they not have any handloading magazines at all, the only gun mag they had was a solitary issue of guns and ammo. I did however get accosted 4 separate times to sign up for their...

    I think the point that one can be nice without being a pushover or too trusting. Being a bit harsh if taken advantage of or ripped off makes sense but I can decline without being mean. Food bank workers always seem to speak of the signs of...

    I’m thinking bout buying the issue but want to know if there are any loads for 115 cast in there. I’ve used a h110 load of 10.0 grains Pierce wrote about some time ago and really like it but who doesn’t want options.

    When I first saw the title I was thinking of online catfishing. Pretending to be someone you are not and building up a fake identity to lure in or abuse others with. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catfishing That show to catch a predator the...

    Like so much in life it depends on the circumstances or the individual as to what is too nice or too trusting. Business deals with cash changing hands a receipt that specifies amount of deposit, purchase price, identifies the item as specifically...

    You will have plenty of power no doubt! Lowering the element may also make the hearing characteristics of the pot more uniform which helps your pid operate more precisely. Probably not a big deal though. Nice build for sure.

    That Track of the Wolf mold is a Lee 6 cavity .31 caliber ball. Essentially muzzle loader mold that makes #1 buckshot. The group buy molds will be 8 cavity available in #1, #00, #000, and I think #0000 (38 round ball) Depending I think on getting...

    Yep brass prep is a pain Crimped primers are sort of harder to tell coming out. As someone mentioned the crimp can hold it tight while the pocket itself is loose. A go no-go gauge would be useful. I use the CH4D primer pocket swager to remove...

    Pretty neat build. I do have a concern about the heating element location. The pot does conduct heat well, but it seems like when the alloy got low it would get more difficult to effect heat transfer from the element to the pot and to the alloy. ...

    Without a doubt pewter is generally and easy sale in S&S forum. Good product for shipping. SFRB holds enough that the shipping isn't a big part of the purchase. You should be able to fit 10# of pewter in a SFRB and have enough form that sale to...

    Actually not too well and only certain kinds. Friends haven’t had much luck with them and you never see an apple orchard. Peaches are another thing entirely. Grow like weeds and overbear like crazy if not pruned and thinned and the frost doesn’t get...

    Surprised and saddened by this news. Liked his posts, was blessed by his encouragement in my own brass reforming endeavors. He will be missed here and I'm sure in his family and community.
