    Now for the really high dollar question. Is there a difference between your group as a scope owner and a scope buyer? That is do you now buy scopes in a different class than you already own? Either up or down. That cheap slug gun scope that I...

    Me too, or a tooth pick, I call the ones I make that are gloss black with bright colors flicked on them Jackson Pollack bullets. Wife has these Q-tips that are sort of pointed and compressed a bit, I borrow them when I can. Dip tip in powder and...

    The price makes them hard to justify as a "need" because the cost is close to what the dies would cost to just do it on a press. Even a cheap C press for ~ $36 plus used dies would tend to make more financial sense.... unless you have a yen just to...

    I think in other areas my experiences support Uncle R's where just a notch or so above cheap can reside some good quality at an attractive price. His $169 - $200 range for scopes is a lot like other purchases. Tools, camping gear, camera gear. ...

    maybe if alloy was binary Pb & Sb but throw in some Sn or As and even small amounts will change the grain structure. I think the reason hardness testers are so vital is one doesn't need to know the alloy for many applications. Just need to know...

    Don't forget the copper jackets have some scrap value, how much is a question but some, even dirty copper will bring in some cash. Help pay for the propane.

    Well one more thing I now know to check for. Thanks. I had a seating problem with military crimp brass, but it was visibly obvious once I looked at the FTF heads. Primers still high after strike, re-try always fired since the first strike pushed...

    RogerDat replied to a thread Smelting pot in Lead and Lead Alloys
    You might try a plate under it as a base, maybe with a side bent up as a wind screen, even 10 gauge plate welded to the bottom of all legs would prevent spread legs. Add a strip of stock up the side of each leg from base to ring with some welds to...

    I think that satin finish is what I was describing as "buttery". I like your word better. I like the tink sound that satin finish ingots make when you knock them together.

    Plus 1 from me too. Powder coat if you want to push it a bit. Sized post PC it has proved to be a most accurate .38/.357 bullet. Better than store bought. The flat nose allows it to be used in lever action if you should someday be so inclined. ...

    I was recently looking at shotgun slug scopes, found a review, price ranged from Simmons to Nikon or $50 to $190 with Bushnell and Monstrum in the middle. http://www.reloaderaddict.com/best-slug-gun-scope-shotgun-optic-review/ Now I'm sure there...

    Wait how much is the Ohio Lottery? We talking millions of $$$ vs a great score of reloading and casting stuff? Tough call that one. How many pounds of the HVAC bucket of WW's where zinc or steel? I need to do some calculating.

    I'm in the zero category, that would be folks that every time they think about getting a scope because open iron sights are getting harder to use with time (I think the metal gets fuzzy or something) They seek out the wisdom of experienced people...
