    I disagree. If I want to walk around the woods during hunting season I have every right and di so all the time. I use my head but I do so. That hunter is completely in the wrong, you don’t shoot what you are not sure of, period. Short of her wearing...

    Hmm. I cant see a disadvantage aside from time spent lubeing and the tiny cost of the lube you’ll use up. At the slower speeds your talking I wouldn’t expect much issue with just coating, the stuff is really tough. How well is your...

    Its just the web page design, basically its the only other option besides something along the lines of “choose this opion” etc. Very tempted by one of the 429 molds, but dang, $16.80 shipping? Plus tax? $45 for a mold thats “on clearance”. Can...

    If you have a large batch of bullets, one option is to toss a bunch of the lubed bullets in a platic jar with a heavy splash of mineral spirits. Shake em up, that’ll remove alot of the alox. I did this with many hundred 357 bullets, got them clean...

    I too am a happy customer of Smokes powder. I like to use his aluminum color mixed with a big pinch of black to make what almost looks like raw lead. Of course performance has been great.
