    Good evening, This is something we deal with on a fairly regular basis. Reloads from other people. I have shot, over the last 35 years, 1000's of other peoples reloads. Just last week we were evaluating a members reloads with a "new" bulk casting...

    The gas checks are just a bit to tight to force on with my thumb. I just needed a slightly stronger "thumb" to press them on. I have a check maker on its way. I am glad I cast these boolits up to include a couple of samples so he could measure and...

    Good evening, I don't know what is in the patches. I used to buy, I now have several on hand, a lead wipe that resembles a chamois. I have them from several makers all the same product, all work the same. I haven't used one in a barrel for years....

    Good evening, Yesterday I decided to size and put gas checks on some boolits. I had used up the last box of .30 cal checks, so I opened a new box from Hornady and got ready to start. Imagine my surprise when the first one was really tight??? So...

    Good evening, I believe all the Hercules, WW and Hodgdon are from '79-83. I know the IMR 3031 is older, guessing early 70's?

    Good evening, Well today was a cleanup day. Started with filing away some "new" load targets in the load binder. Next was putting away a bunch of 357 brass and realized/decided I needed to load a bunch. So dumped some TrailBoss into the measure and...

    Good evening, This is a topic that gets talked about every 3 weeks after our club night. All the bullseye shooters reload and those that don't cast trade with those that do. We all "know" reloading saves $$. In my case. If I only shot my 32 S&W...

    Good morning, HAPPY PIE!!! They are a composite. I have used them as a "semi-hard" surface to pound on. If I have something I don't want to mark and it doesn't sit nice to tap out a pin. I wedge them around to stabilize the rock and roll. Also as...

    Good morning, HAPPY PIE!!! I have mentioned this formula before #of pounds cast and/or shot/year X #of years planning to cast/shoot = #of tons of lead needed. In my case I shoot and cast 300lbs a year X 30 years = 9000lbs. Now my son is shooting...

    Good morning, HAPPY PIE!!!! I kinda figured anything over 1200fp of muzzle energy was enough out of a 30-30, or any 30 cal rifle, with 1500 at the top, when using cast. I load the Lee 170 RNFP. I have used a wide variety of powder, from RedDot,...

    Good afternoon, I have posted this before.... Lee molds can produce consistent results. Keeping a written log of each mold and the alloy used is important. The Lee mold in these pictures casts 163.8gr-164.5gr boolits average is 164.15 and measured...

    Good evening, I can't get Johnston's paste wax or the liquid polish here. I ordered some of Lar's White Label 45/45/10 a couple of years ago. An absolutely fantastic product. I have been using it for 2 years and have lubed 600+ lbs of boolits. I use...

    Good evening, This is the set up I use to melt scrap into ingots. This is not mine. A fellow caster built it and I have borrowed it to process large volumes of COWW. Last time I used it I melted 10 pails of sorted COWW's about 1600lbs. I had a back...

    Good evening, that is one SWEET looking mold. I will have to give NOE molds a try! I agree with Elkins45, 5-6 cavity pistol molds spoil a guy when you cast 2 cavity rifle molds. This afternoon I cast 1000 boolits from a 4 cavity and 200 boolits...
