    Bookworm replied to a thread Unlimited overtime in Our Town
    I'm also self-employed. My work has slowed dramatically, but there is always work to do around the property. The only question is ' Do I want to do it?'

    I've got a Howa varmint rifle on the way, so I'm prepping 223 brass. I acquired several hundred actual once-fired cases. The ritual is in progress; decap, tumble, full length size. Trim (ugh!), flash hole uniform, weight sort, etc. I'm in...

    .....We can pull out the "dollar bazooka" like nobody else. We did that yesterday. How many countries on this earth can, in the space of about a week, commit 6 TRILLION dollars? Nobody but us. That is six MILLION piles of a MILLION dollars each........

    Bookworm replied to a thread Pine-Sol help in Our Town
    Many times I wash my brass with hot water and laundry detergent. I see no reason PineSol wouldn't work. I don't know that it would get the brass shiny, but then that's not my intention when I wash brass. I'm going to try the pine oil cleaner,...

    The boolits I use in competition, mostly at the Military Bolt-gun match at the local club, I weight-sort to .5gr groups. I also weight-sort the brass into 1gr groups. The off-weights I use for fouling or warm-up strings.

    Mrs Bookworm just got her news this morning. 2 and 1/2 weeks leave, at roughly 60% pay. We both are conservative by nature, and have plenty of supplies stocked here at our place. A pantry full if food, a freezer stocked, we have no outstanding...

    I have only uses K&M, and only for 1 cartridge; 7.62x54r. I have used it for 2 different rifles, with 2 different neck requirements. I like the simplicity of the tool, the adjustments are easy, but perhaps not easily repeatable without some...

    Sheesh..... Another 8 minute video with 2 minutes of information. I can't watch through. Why do these folks making videos insist on wasting time? I wish these folks would just get to the point.

    One of my first NOE moulds was a RanchDog designed 180gr for 38/357. It's a 4-cav, 2 GC, 2PB. It's something of a pain to sort out after casting, and I find I have too many of one or the other whenever it comes time to load. I won't buy...

    Bookworm replied to a thread roof jack? in Lead and Lead Alloys
    I did this with plumbing pipe and traps. I cut out all the soldered joints and rendered them separate. I sent a sample to @BNE, it came back 95% Pb,5%Sn. Perfect 20-1. Well, 19-1 actually. Well worth the effort.

    I have Lyman cast #1, #3, and #4. I use mostly #4, but for rifle loads (except 7.62x54r) the #3 has a pile of info and moulds not found elsewhere. #1 I have for general reading and historical perspective. The layout of the data section is...

    The oil is nothing more than a source of carbon, in this case hydrocarbons. The sawdust is nothing more than a source of carbon. Oil soaked sawdust is just a way to get more carbon in the same volume of material.

    For rendering wheelweights and dirty lead, I use sawdust into which I pour used engine oil. Just enough oil to color the sawdust. Works better than anything else I've tried. The sawdust is mixed, whatever I swept up off the floor. In the...
