    5744 can be come by much cheaper by just buying Shooters World Buffalo Rifle. Same powder. Like 296- H110 or 231- HP38. That said , I like 3031 in the 45-70. Gp

    The only real damage shown on the local news was to the sandstone cross on top of Boise's historic cathedral. Cross was broken at it's base and had to be taken down by crane before it fell. I haven't heard of anyone being injured. All in all an...

    I bought a bag of 500 Downrange wads that are the 12S3 clone. I can't see any difference and I'm a fan of the original 12S3 and 12S4 wads. Gp

    This one was centered in the central Idaho mountains and I'm hearing 6.3 to 6.5. It wasn't a sharp shock here at my place, just a rolling effect. Nothing cracked or broke all pictures still hanging so all's well if a little unusual. Gp

    Not unusual to some of you in LoCal but we just had a pretty good rolling earthquake here in the Boise valley. First one of any notice since the early 80s. Gp

    If you use a chop saw to cut the lead ingots don't use carbide tip blades as the teeth may break off and become a flying projectile. I might put a dull blade in the saw backwards (prevents grabbing) and go slow. Remember, your eyes and fingers don't...

    Powder coating bullets using the air soft BBs works very well for SOME applications. Remember the powders were engineered to work from an electrostatic gun and to me, it's a wonder that this Hillbilly shotcut of shake and bake works at all. Don't...

    I hear you BNE. Being a Noe thousand dollar club member more than twice over and owning many more from the other makers, I should just work more with what I have. This mould business is a sickness I tell you! Gp

    I'm on the list for my first group buy. I believe this will be the last, just takes too long at my age. I would most likely drop out on this one as I've purchased other moulds that fill my need but I will stay in for others here that have more...

    Longknife: Sounds like your goals are past mine in shotguns but if I understand what your looking for. I'd opt for the Paradox over the Zboy as the paradox has substantial bands. The Zboy has very small bands that would swag down much to easy for...
