    @ 4.5 gr per load it is 1555 rounds per pound of powder. That means you need a box and a half of primers for each pound of Red Dot. PS at that rate figuring 25$ per pound it is 1.6 cents per round for powder. Primers will cost you 3-4 cents,...

    Johnson's liquid (one step) is some good magic mixed with alox. Does not take much. For pistol or low velocity Rifle 2 very light coats will do. For higher velocity I go to 3 coats. A round or semi round container of some kind with a snap...

    I have never tried to go low in .44mag. Mine are all Handi rifles, shoot 6.5 gr of Red Dot behind near any boolit 200 to 240 grains very very well. I would try 3, 3.5,4,4.5 grain loads. For some strange reason 4.6 grains works amazingly well...

    I let my step daughter talk me out of my old Heritage Rough Rider in .22lr/.22mag. Now it was no great shakes of a pistol in .22lr. But 20 years after buying it I discovered that it was a tack driver in .22mag. And I'm missing it. Problem is I...

    I could maybe see the point in a .357 mold, to drop a pair of 125 gr bullets, a pair of 158 gr, etc. But I think each person would want a different setup. Easier to buy a single 6 cavity in a bullet size/conformation that you know works and let...

    I don't think you do. I guess you could make plinking ammo out of them. But every time one does not go off, you have to pull the bullet, dump the primer, reprime, recharge, reset bullet to get back to where you were. Not worth the effort IMO....

    Well worth the time to experience that marvel of the gunmakers art. Very interesting indeed. And something a person could play with on a small scale while he figures out what works.

Married, interests are wide and widely varied.

Slingshots, blowguns, airguns


It was three things that made America great.
It was God, guns, and guts. 3 things twice actually. We need to get back to our roots.

Back to those 3 and the other big 3. The Declaration of Independence,
The Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Get GOD back in our lives and our country, find the courage of our convictions, or guts, and a willingness to stand up and fight for what we believe in. Guns.
The other big 3 are our road map.
