    Ajay: Thanks for sharing the above links and for the post. Twenty years ago I wouldn't have thought things could get so far off track that if would come down to shots fired to protect what's left of our freedom, now I'm not so sure. Anyway, I do...

    One of my favorite powders. You can make something fly out of about any cartridge using TiteGroup. Pistol or rifle. Gp

    I'm no help on this one. The reformed LC 308 to 35Rem brass I bought from Grumpa works great. It's on it's third or fourth reloading. The .762X51 LC brass I bought from him took a little extra force to resize as it had been fired in automatic...

    NorthMoccasin: Don't worry to much about the case capacity, just use a powder that is appropriate. My 25-06 is VERY accurate shooting the Noe 258-120-FN over IMR4227 13 to 17gr. best around 16gr. Gp

    I turned a .365" size die much like a Lee die for my Mak. I bought a 36" length of 7/8"-14 hi grade (grade 8) threaded rod just to make things like this. Nice to get the lathe running again.

    If you look at your second chart you will find pewter. It shows a brinel of 23 that's about the same as Lyno. Lyno = H pencil. This is the first I saw that middle chart.

    I don't know if this is common knowledge or not. I bought some pewter at the thrift store the other day and while driving around at work I wondered what the pencil hardness was. I checked with my set of Staedtler pencils and came up with this. H...

    I use .002 neck tension and also put a small flare on the case when loading powder coated bullets. I'm a big fan of the Noe expanders but they do leave somewhat of a sharp edge on the case mouth. Just a kiss with the Lee case expander tooling rolls...

    Casting shed count? Made big ingots into small ingots. Been messing with one of the alloy calculators. And have been casting 12 lead to 1 Foundry type. Seems what I thought was Lyno is foundry type. Figured that out here on Cast Boolits.

    Thanks for the reply igolfat8. I've ordered one of the tube filters from Ebay that works along the lines of a tampon. I saw a youtube video on how to add a 1" PVC tube filled with desiccant media in the tube. It should arrive next week. So far...

    gpidaho replied to a thread Feral Dogs in Hunting with CB's
    Here in Idaho, dogs that chase cattle are shot. Doesn't mater if they're feral or wearing a collar. Lazy cows gain weight ,that's the ranchers income, running cows lose weight. The cattle aren't kept as pets. Gp

    Thought I'd post a follow up to this thread. The link posted by igolfat8 worked with the addition of a double male adapter. Yong Heng compressor- 8mm double male fitting to link above fills the SCBA tank just fine. It took a little guessing on...
