    Lots of info so far, thanks all. I already have plenty of portable propane cylinders, burners, grills, etc. canning is a consideration, but I think I could use a camp chef propane stove. My wife likes her stove nice, and if cleanup is as easy as...

    Breathing the dust is by far the easiest and most "effective" way to absorb lead the skin is another. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12529920 One of my bad habits was washing brass in a bucket I would reach in and turn and stir the brass...

    I have been looking to replace the old stove we have with a new one. Gas is not an option as we have an all-electric house. I have become intrigued by the induction stovetops that are on the marketplace. In particular Frigidaire/Kenmore has a...

    Well if you are doing a custom job one assumes it gets individually measured. Production most shops measure a sample to spot things drifting or cutting tool wear. Much as one might weigh every 5th or 10th charge of powder. Doing a custom load you...

    Another person in the I like Titegroup for 38 camp but I use Unique too. Both work well with PC and sized cast in revolvers. My 8# jug as "stash" for pistol is Unique. I think that Unique burning clean might benefit from a good crimp to help...

    USPS is actually run well under budget and its volume of deliveries is greater in a month than the next largest delivery service in a year. For less than 1/2 the price of a cup of coffee I can send several pages anywhere in the country. For $7 I...

    Have some care around lead with white oxidation. Lead oxide is one of the easiest ways to end up elevating your blood lead levels. Powder breathed in is absorbed, and you can absorb it through your skin from handling. Once you melt that lead...

    Bingo #2 I would go lower than $1.00 like 90 cents, and if they don't bite allow how it might be worth $1 since there won't be shipping. Otherwise plenty of vendors and members in swapping and selling forum here sell it for $1 a pound. Ready...

    Got some serious bling and custom factor there. Well it is a good thing hip hop stars are not into flint locks otherwise a bunch of musicians in LA would be sporting that sweet looking ML or copies of it.

    Yep works, besides it is smart idea to use some JB Weld on the tang going into the handle anyway. The molds tend to slip off eventually, generally when in the middle of casting, full of hot lead and the mold too hot to hold onto. Having the mold...

    PC does add a touch of diameter, and you can set up a drill press to "bump" the nose with a rod and squish out an extra thou or two in diameter. I have shot 124 grain in 38 and it can be a very pleasant shooting bullet but those were cast by...

    Lot of folks also need to think about what tools they have on hand. My 4 inch grinder with cut off wheel might not work but would encourage some to try. A larger version such as a 6 or 8 inch would probably work. Even stuff such as sledgehammer...

    If you are on a budget... look in the big box building supply stores for a job site tool box. Properly anchored with a pair of good padlock's it is inexpensive and will hold a lot of cased firearms. Designed to be full of expensive tools at an...

    I have used the Lee 310 in my marlin 1894p which has 1:38 twist with complete satisfaction to 100 yds. Now I use the NOE version of the ranch dog 265. I wouldn't worry about the twist a bit

    However the Lee 6 cavity handles will often fit other companies 1, 2, 3 & 4 cavity molds I use a couple of pairs of Lee 6 cavity handles for NOE and Lyman molds. So you can get a lot of use from the Lee 6 cavity handles. I find it well worth my...

    If you don't end up needing it you can sell it to someone that struggles to find any. Better to have ingots you don't need then to need ingot you can't get. As long as the weight don't break the floor I say go for it!

    All good suggestions. I would add place safe so it hampers ability to pry on the safe. In a corner, closet or cul-de-sac. If you don't have a natural location then build a wall in an obscure corner that blocks three sides of the safe and bolt it...
