    1.5 grain of Red Dot? I haven't tried Red Dot yet for my 22lr. But was planning to. I like the fact that you can use about half of the amount you would use for some other powders and that makes it super cheap. I was going to use 1.3 grains to 1.5...

    Traffer replied to a thread Tin in Cast Boolits
    I just got a bowl at goodwill for $.75. It said pewter and it is. 11.5 oz of pewter for under a buck. However the cheapest I could find the exact bowl for online was over $25. I am not going to melt it unless I have to. The same bowl was being sold...

    If you guys are going to buy them to help John out are going to break them down and sell individually I would be proud to buy and own one of John Kort's molds. I can't afford more than one though.

    I have heard several folks who own both rock chucker and classic cast say that the classic cast was a better press...even though it is 1/4 to 1/3 the price.

    For all you guys who are chiming in on Lee presses, this is a Lee Classic Cast. I broke the very same part the first time I used mine. I over-tightened the through bolt that held the handle in place. It literally cracked the part so it broke with...

    Some folks are describing a different press here. The Lee Classic Cast is all steel. Lee did re-design the similar part on their smaller "O" style press. I believe it is called a "breech lock" press. My brother had one that he had glued together. I...

    There are a lot of people here that love to bad mouth Lee. Most probably never used one. The Lee classic cast is a very good unit at a very good price.

    I broke the same part on mine. It was because I OVER TORQUED the bolt that holds it in. They should put torque specs in the instructions. I put the new one in and did not over torque it and I dare say it will never fail. The part was about $5.

    I had the same thought. I hate the stupid colored bullets. My solution was to get Smoke's Clear. Why not just put a clear coat over the lead? I just got it and will be using it soon. I have heard that the bullets coated with it look really good...

    When someone says "It will hold 3 gallons of water", I can picture exactly how big it is. There are lead pots on eBay that tell exactly how much they hold, i.e., 4 pound pot. etc. If you look at the comments under 4 lb pot you will see many...

    Yup, check into getting your own website. May not be as expensive as you think. I had a free one in the form of a dns server for about 6 years. I quit it when they wanted $25 per year. They are still really cheap. You will have to learn a little...

    I have a 4lb lee pot so I smelt first in a much bigger rig. I make the pucks from muffin tins and they work well in the little lee pot. Also, I use a white-out pen from Dollar Tree (2 for $1) to write on the puck so I know what it consists of.

About Traffer
Raised in Wisconsin. First gun was a Model 1890 Winchester 22 short gallery gun. (1906 version) I hunted with that from the age of about 9. First deer rifle was M1917, 30-06. Shot my first deer with it at 13 yrs old. 365 yards with that wonderful peep sight. I quit hunting in 1984 and consequently haven't fired a gun since . Just started shooting again about 4 months ago I got a 22lr. Now I am reloading 22LR and will be reloading 22WMR also.
