    In the dark, under stress, at a target moving toward you. BMC is your only real target. Only question in my mind is how hard you going to hit that mass and with how much weight. I would use a DA with say .38 at 158 grains or 9mm at 124 grain as...

    Probably not. I live in a rural location but they will sure ticket the snot out of you if they catch you burning plastic off of wire. And with the smell fair to middling chance someone down wind will call it in since it won't smell like wood/yard...

    I celebrated no major rivers caught fire, and that there is no longer an advisory to not eat any Great Lakes fish only an advisory on how much Great Lakes fish one can eat without health risk. While I no longer canoe the local rivers it is nice...

    I was also thinking LsStuff ready made. For what they sell a quart for I think you are well ahead over making it yourself. If you decide to make it yourself then check LsStuff because they also has Xlox which is way cheaper than other sources of...

    Yes it was, and going to a fellow caster in the same general area. Close enough we hit some of the same gun shows anyway.

    12 lbs. of near Linotype alloy. Had some spacers in it that I'm guessing were fairly high tin/lead alloy. BNE tested it at: Sb 10.4% Sn 5.1% Pb 84.5% Linotype would be 12/4/84 So the tin part bumped up which drove down the percentage...

    Cast a couple dozen Lee .562 round ball to see if they were a snug but not overly tight fit in 20 gauge with a wad. Now going out to do a couple hundred because they fit very well.

    The concept that you can't take an alloy back apart certainly has merit as a consideration. I keep the majority of my components separate but.... When I make Lyman #2 I'll end up having it gunned a couple of times to adjust the alloy until it is on...

    Just as everyone knows the silver content of a 1969 Kennedy 1/2 dollar everyone knows the alloy content of lines of type form of lead. It may be a bit lower on the Sn and Sb than the posted values of 4/12 but not by too much or they wouldn't be...

    I'm thinking hang it above pot and hit it with one of those 50,000 BTU torch wands from Harbor Freight so that it drips and flows right down into the casting pot, arriving pre-warmed and everything. Then take the torch out and kill weeds in the...

    you can either try to work your way up the chain by asking the trucker who hauls it where it goes and who it gets delivered to and so on until you get to someone that can make a deal OR you can find someone near the bottom that has the pull to just...

    Me I thought it was mosquitos when I saw the title. But my wife puts the humming bird feeder up. We like to sit on porch and watch them zip around, they get pretty rowdy trying to drive each other off.

    Ding! Ding! Ding! and we have a winner. The .562 ball goes through about like loading a muzzle loader +/- a bit. As soon as I get a chance to mark a dowel as a depth gage to leave enough hull for crimping I'll be loading a couple of them to test....

    I use file handles, they are about like the wood handle on a mold. Some the ferrule tightens to squeeze down on the tang. My biggest problem is storing files so they don't get banged together. I put them on a piece of cardboard but every so often...

    I had one single clerk in a fairly large post office who really didn't like my boxes of lead. One time she wouldn't take a SFRB because "it had tape all over it". What it had was fiber tape on all folds/corners, and over the label it had clear...

    If you don't find an available .30 round ball mold check out track of the wolf. They have a 6 cavity .310 round ball Lee mold for a decent price. I picked up one because two pours to do a load seemed better than six pours with a double cavity. ...

    My Lee .562 RB mold is due here Friday. I'm going to want to make at least a few right away to check actual fit. Now where is that fingers crossed smiley? YIPPEEE! It came a day early. :-) At least according to the USPS tracking system.
