    If the powder is unknown you are taking a risk trying to load with it. Load data is for known powders. Figure or guess wrong on powder and use a load you "think" is right is one way to turn a firearm into a pipe bomb. Does make good plant...

    I bet they didn't see it in the SOLD section of flea bay. Lot of stuff is offered at high prices, it just doesn't get sold very often. I have been tempted a few times to put up nicer pewter objects at super high prices just to see if someone bites....

    Yeah but you are weird (in a good way but still weird) I only paid enough attention to understand how to make "interesting" stuff. Like ammonia and iodine :-) Or everyone's favorite mole and ground hornet remover. 2 KNO3 + S + 3 C

    It seems that there are certain questions that keep coming up. This being one of them. The answer was no, is no, and will be no. Even in french they say "Non!" Sometimes I wonder if there should be a sticky that is required reading to post. ...

    You have two extra bonus items there. Antimony of course is good and at 7% it will be unlikely to reduce the percentage in any alloy you add the Babbitt to for the tin. Second goody is the copper. Makes a "tougher" bullet, one less likely to...

    RogerDat replied to a thread Tin removal in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Nah we all know our scrap melts are not really smelting but it sounds way cool to call it that so..... :-) In answer to fiatdad having contaminated his soft Pb with harder alloy it sounds like a swap is in order. His hard for someone else's...

    Tumble lube works and if you want to push it (or enjoy the smell of burning Alox based lubes) then dip and place in plastic bullet tray from box of bullets to dry/drain. Then through Lee sizer. Nice thick band of lube in each groove. Or for...

    RogerDat replied to a thread Tin removal in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Interesting question. Never heard of folks wanting to take tin out of their casting alloy. Why would you wish to do so? Typically if the tin content is too high then one "cuts" the tin alloy with more plain or WW lead to reach a lower percentage...

    When I have used the alloy calculator and had the results tested by the scrap yard XRF gun it has been pretty darn accurate on the alloy percentages. I don't have an accurate hardness tester but have on occasion been able to get stuff checked at...
