    The problem with preps is once they are gone growing really is your only option. Unless you can trade a skill, knowledge, other materials for food, which I'm all in favor of. Just remember if you bug out, either alone or with a very small...

    9mm is a high pressure round, unless you load negative pressure you are going to get more flattened primers than with a low pressure round like 38 spl. If this bothers you switch to magnum primers, and reduce your load to account for the hotter...

    I'm with nobade. See what you have first. Then if you have the H&R long leade, consider trying .360DW brass rather than reaming. I have a .357 mag and mine takes full length .360 brass without trimming. And I set my cast boolits out farther...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Guilt? in Lead and Lead Alloys
    I sat rubbing my hands with Glee as I melted down the 6.5 lb score my wife brought home for 11$. That stuff was cast in a machine, lived a long full life. Now it gets added to a pot of lead and lives again as a shiny cast boolit. Nope, no...

    My pair of Ruger Mk III 22/45's dine exclusively on Federal Auto Match ammo. Although they have tasted others in the past they showed a distinct preference. But when I start seeing problems it is time to clean, lightly oil, wipe dry and start...

    I have been known to slip 2 slugs into the bore in order to get far enough in some cases. My .357 handi rifle was one. Bored long enough to accept untrimmed .360dw brass and still I have to crimp in the top lube groove to get close to the...

    .223 barrel alone is worth that. .243's have a somewhat rocky reputation. I think mostly they don't like the longer bigger bullets. Stick to 80's and smaller and do a good load workup and you should be fine. Receivers alone are 70-90 for SB2...

    Patience, keep them warm for a week or two and they will dry. Yes on next batch I would use buckshot or a foam cap with a few drops of wax. I have shot hot glue bullets with just a primer down the bore, found no evidence of melting. But...

    We have 2 silicone muffin tins that I adore. A silicone cookie baking sheet I have not found a use for, yet. But I don't PC my boolits. That might be the perfect use for it.
