    Take a magnet with you to check the copper scrub pads. MOST are steel. You have to find the all copper ones. Usually Chore Boy brand.

    Cherokee replied to a thread Pot Height in Cast Boolits
    I cast standing. I have my pot positioned so I can see the spout and the sprue plate in a normal standing position. Usually by the time I need to see my metal level in the pot I'm ready for a break and will use a step stool to look down into the...

    Try and find some of the WW 60gr HP bullets!!! Used to shoot those in my '92. Have a few 60gr FP and have shot some 75gr spire point bullets too. 25-20 was my first centerfire rifle.

    Late to this party--sorry about that. I no longer carry a 38 Special for felon repellent. If I did, I would select one of the factory 158 grain LSWC/HP +P loads and call it "Good". These are easily duplicated by reloaders to create practice...

    My son liked the boolits that I made for him, and asked me what I wanted for them. Well, the six cavity mold in the same boolit but 125 grain would have been nice, but I just asked for the two cavity. I can still make them for both of us, and I like...

    Fisher Since you're hunting with the rifle/cartridge in question and considering smokeless powder loads I would suggest the use of a GC'd bullet. You will get better accuracy at the higher end velocity you've mentioned. I've done a bit of long...

    Keep in mind with "listed" +P loads that the SAAMI MAP for standard 38 SPL is 17,000 psi. The SAAMI MAP for 38 SPL +P is 20,000 psi. Neither MAP psi figure means that all standard 38 SPL loads produce 17,000 psi and all +P loads produce 20,000...

    Two vets recently committed suicide on the grounds of two separate VA hospitals in Georgia, and a third in the main lobby of one in Austin, TX - all within 5 days. I strongly suspect that they were NOT receiving adequate, quality mental health...

    My experience with the VA also has been positive. Anything and everything to show "drama" on military tv shows, particularly about any special operations units is pure Hollywood hallucination......especially in The Unit, SIX and SEAL...

    I always reserve the right to be wrong in matters like these involving varying alloys, obturation, and effects of pressure on those alloys. I don't have a strong scientific base upon which to make assessments, either. I only know what I have seen...

    Like you I was very surprised by the effectiveness of the 9's and 40's. The other thing that surprised me was the number of times warning shots that were fired. What we don't know is how many times the warning shot ends the encounter? Personally...

    Ove gloves. Cut the sprue with my gloved hand, tip the cut off into my gloved hand to return to the pot. Open the mold and eject the boolits. Close the mold , check that it is all lined up and repeat.

Μολὼν λαβέ; approximate Classical Greek pronunciation [molɔ̀ːn labé], Modern Greek [moˈlon laˈve]), meaning "Come and take them" is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae.
