    I may have missed it but, did you say what the hardness of the bismuth alloy was? This probably comes under the heading of something I might experiment with, like the addition of copper to the alloy, but not use. It's always a good idea to have...

    Two things that need explanations is 1. If coating/projectiles has been subjected to 180C for adequate time, so coated cast is at 180C, why was there a total wipe off???? 2. With over baking, there seemed to be also a wipe off, and colour became...

    Really like those soup can bullets for punching holes in paper. Slide sent me some with a hollow base when we were testing PC and HiTek. Those bullets were very accurate of hand. And I'm no bullseye shooter with a hand gun. Slides a really nice...

    About an hour away we have a 600 yard range. But I’ve never shot there. You have to get three out of five in the 300 yard bullseye before they let you shoot the 600 yard. I’m still working with the 200 yard range where I shoot. When those become...

    You guys probably already know this but people who shoot beyond 200-300 yards and bench rest shooters do a lot of things to get an extra .25 inches or even .1 at 100 yards. At 600 yards .25 inches in 100 becomes 1 1/2 inches. At 1000 yards, well...

    So it looks like everyone does pretty much what I do. I loaded up 300 rounds of .45 the other day with three different makes of brass. Same with .357 mag, .38 special and 44 magnum several different brands. But with the .308 I try to keep the...

    I agree that there are more zinc and steel now than when I started. But it is still worthwhile to go through the bin. Actually it has worked somewhat in my favor that there are more weights that are not lead. It caused the price to come down and...

    Processing old car batteries has certain health hazards that has always kept me from considering it. Like Stephen COWW are just too cheap and accessible to make me want to consider other stuff. After you have been through a couple of thousand...
