    Well I made 5 shells and 2 are really nice looking, one is a little domed in the center. 2 of them the crimp is an 1/8 inch below the rim, I'm going to cut them open to see what is up. I either have less shot, no powder, or I pushed hard enough...

    I think you could probably get away with a mix of 50/50 Lyman #2 alloy and plain. Would be 2.5/2.5/95 alloy BHN ~11.6 should work if you are buying the alloy from Rotometals. One ingot of each per 10# pot. Or you could go to the forum swapping...

    I believe the Lee crimp die in the 45 Colt die set applies a roll crimp. As does the .38 special / .357 the verbiage in their 4 die set says factory crimp, so maybe my set the crimp die is before they started including the carbide sizing ring? At...

    Yeah I try to accumulate a shopping list so I get the most from my entry fee. I also tend to go to the shows that are at places that don't ding me for parking fee in addition to an entry fee. The Mason show is $6 to attend, $5 with coupon. I can...

    Flint city water lines? :mrgreen: Older houses are a good source, lead was the plastic for much of the prior century. I see a lot more plain than anything else. This makes me think in time casters will get mostly soft lead scrap and buy...

    Bass Pro had that take a number thing too. Was not impressed, waiting for primers like I was at the secretary of states waiting to renew drivers license. And when my number was called finding out they were $4 more than I buy them for at a gun show.

    I recently got to fire a zouve ML in that caliber, and the large bore are a hoot to shoot. Bet it rang the steel with some authority.

    Scrap yard will pay more for zinc ingots than zinc WW's since the zinc WW's would go in the dirty or mixed lead bin. But they will generally buy either one. Not surprised the pot melted through. Not only will the temperature be hotter for melting...

    If really soft suspect might be plumbers lead, used in the past to seal pipes if harder, and a corner melts really easily with a propane torch I would suspect pewter or tin sweetener used to refresh linotype for re-use. If those are older, and still...

    RogerDat replied to a thread Gander Mountain in Our Town
    Prices seem a bit high to me and stock was a bit hit or miss. But on the other hand they were a lot closer than Cabelas or Bass Pro Shops and BPS has prices on components that were really steep, only place you can always find those scarce primers...
