    Sorry to disagree, but you are mistaken. A polymer jacket is much more than a lube, which is a common misconception. Polymer is as hard as copper plating and bonds better than plating to the alloy; a gas check doesn't bond at all. Polymer will...

    I like to ship brass in padded USPS envelopes. YOu can get them for free at USPS.com, they hold twice as much as an SFRB and cost 5¢ more to ship. I always double up the envelopes.

    Hi Mike, I wasn't suggesting everyone start PC pure lead, my point as you found out, is the old alloy rules for lubed bullets doesn't apply to PC bullets. I shoot range scrap, which typically tests about 10-11 BHN and it works fine for everything I...

    If you are just starting out I would recommend getting a powder that works from Smoke and try the shake & bake method instead of spraying. The benefit is a completely coated bullet cooked standing up will give you a flat base; there will be no...

    Maybe I am missing something, but why gas check a plain base bullets when it would be so much simpler to powder coat them?

    Knowing what is behind your target is also very important. Many use loads and boolits that will pass through the target and "go in its merry way" and occasionally (I'm not saying any of you would) they miss the target,

    I think at this point taking the gun into a smith is the prudent thing to do. When I slug a barrel I first cast some pure lead bullets for the caliber then size the lead slugs without any lubricant! I then powder coat the bullets. A properly...

    I can see no benefit of lubing a PC bullet, other than I may mist them with a 1 to 12 mix of lanolin and 99% alcohol to make sizing easier. A properly applied and cured powder coating is a superior lubricant to any grease combination; this has been...

    Nice find and like so many things, it doesn't matter what it did, it can be repurposed. All you have to do is come up with what you can use it for.
