    Yeah, you're right. Turkey Hunting and bug spray go hand in hand around here. Both of the places on the stock are right where you would hold it too.

    You could test under the recoil pad or in the stock inletting. I am thinking maybe some super glue followed by some scuff pad.

    I've got a Browning BPS with the Mossy Oak Camo stock that has a couple of sticky spots on the stock caused by getting bug spray on it. Like it was melted. Has anyone got any ideas on how to correct this? Thanks I've tried: Mineral Spirits...

    Thanks Guys! I'm finished and at home. Everything went smoothly and I won't have to do it again for 6 months. I'm kind of weak and wimpy right now but that was expected. Prolly lay around for the rest of the day and be lazy! :smile:

    How much are those credit card knives worth? I had one some time back and I only gave 5 bucks for it if I recall right. Course I'm sure it was a different brand.

    I hope you fellows that are having troubles all get better. Supermag, watch those falls. A bad fall can be a life changing event. Maybe something like a mini flash light thats easy to carry that can help you see your furry friends in the dark!

    Morning everyone. Shortly I'll be headed back to the Doctors office for the second half of this treatment. If I tolerate it ok I'll get the next full one in 6 months. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

    Thanks for the replies. That gives me some good hope clearwater. I am looking at the Lyman manual also. Did you get good accuracy with the starting load or did you have to tweak it?

    I'm not sure I understand the question. If you're talking about melting your alloy over and over then yes you will eventually deplete the alloy. Print shops would buy rich alloy to replace what was lost by continuously melting linotype over and...

    I would not think the zinc would damage you pot or your barrels. Guys that don't sort wheel weights run some risk of a zinc weight getting trapped in the bottom of the pot and getting hot enough to melt.

    This is a good point and I agree that this small % is a non issue. I just wonder how many, if any, were missed. A small % won't hurt although I try for zero. I've seen test results showing that up to 5% will still cast well. Personally I would be...

    I don't see a wrong answer here. Shoot them if you want to. Personally it don't bother me to melt bullets down and cast what I want out of them. But, I don't see anything about those pictured that would keep me from shooting them as is.

    Maybe it's as simple as they were into it a while and bought stuff that just added up to duplicates. Or had a couple sizers going set for different things.

    Bazoo replied to a thread Lyman Spartan in Reloading Equipment
    I use a spartan and I like it other than I don't have a primer catcher for it. I made a wedge to go under it, and I'm working on a mod to keep the handle up better. I've loaded a bunch of pistol ammo and 30-30 on it.
