    Personally, I'd look not at the result on deer, as both have been used enough to verify both are effective, but rather I'd ask a series of peripheral questions. Will it be a reloading only gun? 357 is much cheaper to buy than 45 colt. Is...

    My wife had a crickett, very accurate. It prefered winchester 333/555 ammo and I could hit an empty 22 casing at 25 yards with it. You can get a larger stock but we never did, both used the kiddy stock. She's little and it fit her okay. I'm...

    My biggest regret about the Victor(LNIB with all docs.) I obtained is showing to a friend. She immediately presumed ownership of it. I did help her out later by buying a 22 short conversion unit NIB for it. As stated in the song 'Those were the...

    Were I in a quandary I'll determine total cash paid for the HS's to date. Divide the latest temptation($) by that value getting a percentage. If you conscientiously use this formula and don't let it get over 100 I think you'll be okay.:-?...

    I've experienced this before. It is either from too little deburring of the case mouth, or a slightly rough die. RCBS told me I could polish the inside of the die at the crimp ring and it would help as it could be a slight ridge in the die. It...

    This is what I would do. Ammunition collectors, including me, display lots of loaded cartridges with no issues.

    lightman replied to a thread Sawdust in Casting Equipment
    That sounds like a lot but if you have the space to store it the price was certainly right. I would probably try to find some metal barrels or trash cans to put it in to keep mice out of it.

    Bazoo replied to a thread Sawdust in Casting Equipment
    I use sawdust for flux when melting weights into ingots. It seems it helps remove the garbage. I don't scrimp on it, maybe use 1/3 of a coffee can of sawdust for 40-50 pounds of weights. Then I flux with wax after the initial sawdust fluxing.

    Thanks for the replies. Only about 400 bullets. I ain't done anything yet. Next tumbler load I'll see about running a handful through and how it does. I don't have a wet tumbler. I'm collecting the parts to make one however. So I might wait...

    Nice Score! I shoot mostly straight clip on weights. Some casters will add a little tin, maybe 1.5% or so.

    Bump up with additional options. After pilfering through orphan dies I am short a Hornady 38/357 seating die so will trade even for one of them as well. Outright purchase is an option as well. $25 Shipped in USA. Thanks.

    My experience is about like most of you'all's. A couple of different collet type pullers work ok on jacketed bullets. Not so well on cast. A couple different inertia pullers work pretty hard to pull cast bullets that are crimped. On cast, I pretty...

    The yards around here won't sell to the public either. My main source of Tin is from solder. Pewter is hard to find here. Its hurts to see bins full of stuff that you can't get don't it?

    Like I said back in post #10, its gotten to be a game between me and a few friends. Last week we picked up a total of 53 lead weights and 1 lead anchor. The concrete type anchor that is. There were 2 Zinc weights and maybe 5 steel weights. Its...

    I'm well beyond having "enough" but I still enjoy a good score. The thrill of the chase, or something like that! Me and a buddy probably picked up 50 weights of various sizes off of street corners last week while just knocking around.

    Same thing here. Our temps are probably like they are where you're at. I've collected enough weights since last winter for a smelting session and a buddy has a large pile of pole top and crossarm pins piled up in my shop waiting to be melted. I've...

    Being able to handle them quicker would be the only advantage that I can think of. Personally I prefer to leave water out of my casting/smelting routine.
