    Andy replied to a thread Unknown bullets in Cast Boolits
    Don I think there is no way to be 100% sure those cartridges are safe to fire, no matter how careful you are about it. I believe you're suggesting weighing the loaded cartridges and that's a smart thought, but case weights can differ a good amount...

    I have 5lbs in a diy tumbler that I'm guessing holds 2 gallons, seems like it takes 3-4 hours to get brass really shiny. Looks like grmps is getting the same level of shine as me in 2-3 hours so maybe I'll up the pin amount to 7 or 10lbs total to...

    Agree with johnboy, that's exactly what I did for my homemade one and the results lined right up with what I expected for 3 different alloys, and I didn't even have a good magnifying glass to measure with. You can get the right size ball...

    Andy replied to a thread Alternating Mold Issues in Cast Boolits
    I haven't done any analytical testing of bullet quality when doing this, but when I've tried alternating in the past it seems like the only time it works well is with molds that have a long-ish cycle time and that also have similar cycle times to...

    Tested out 23.0gr yesterday and it held 1-1.5" 5 shot groups at 50 yards consistently so I decided that will be my hunting load for the year. Went back up today with my 1-4x scope mounted on the rifle and sighted that in out to 100 yards. It is...

    This is a great example of how to price something when you are selling a large lot of various large/heavy items and don't want to have to split it up, ship or wait months for it to sell.

    I own a small woodworking shop as my main job in life so I read a lot of forum posts/ info about different woodworking machinery. Grizzly customer service is regarded as being really great and their tools are thought of as often being the "best...

    Wondering who out there does true barrel relining. I read up on it about a year ago and found a bunch of places that do low pressure relining where they greatly restrict what calibers you can choose for the project (only very low pressure...

    I agree with dragon, lead isn't going anywhere it is just hard to find it free or nearly free like people talk about being the case 10-20 years ago. If you look up the historical commodity value of lead it increased greatly in the 2000's along with...

    I'm fairly new to the game but from my reading most people end up using .360 in a marlin microgroove barrel. You really ought to slug your barrel though and then you don't have to worry about buying unnecessary sizing dies, just add .002" to the...

    I believe you have to go through a process that only large companies bother with to be a commercial shipping entity with USPS (paypal, ebay, etc). The easy workaround is to ship via paypal/shipnow as that lets you get commercial rates...
