    Your snarky comment doesn't really deserve an answer but I will give one for the benefit of others: I had a pretty good percentage of my lead supply that was acting suspiciously like it had zinc in it. Was just starting in the casting realm and...

    I tried sulfur once and never again. BAD BAD BAD BAD...Don't do it. Fumes are really bad...very hard to work with... I got "black goo" that formed on top of the melt. It took a while for the goo to get kind of ash/cinderish. I ended up using about 5...

    So, Like after reading the heading for the post I was intrigued. Thinking maybe someone was making a 27 caliber rim fire round. The 17 WSM is a rim fire round based on the 27 caliber nail gun cartridge. A straight walled 27 caliber would not be...

    Ditto nhithaca on this one: I would definitely NOT shoot modern 22 short ammo in this gun. Use CB or BB caps. When Flobert came out with the caliber in the late 1840's it was a non-powdered cap pistol. I am not sure if by the 1860's they were...

    I probably have but don't recall anything specific...memory is going on me....There are lots of ways of making bullet molds. The trick is precision. The more precise you can be the better the mold will be. CNC would be probably the best. But it can...

    There are quite a few guys who have made their own dies for converting 22lr cases into .223 jackets. I made a set for the heck of it. And I am a noob machinist at best with only a cheap 7x10 Chinese minilathe. I made them out of 7/8 14 bolts. There...

    I have a tube fed 16 ga bolt. I think it is a Ward's or something like that. They are about the cheapest shotguns on the market. Cheaper than single shot's. I got mine when I was a teen... was given to me. I butchered it up to make a slug gun out...

    Yup, Grill mats are it! Mine is copper color but they call it teflon. Will never need anything else. Like I said $1.15 per sheet on eBay from our friends in China.

    I don't think there is any doubt that it is the main beam in some kind of heavy press. Many hand presses years ago were made on that principle.

    Hey... Does anyone know how to make lead shiny. Like a fresh cut or like how boolits come out of a mold? I swaged up a bunch of boolits to powdercoat then reswage. Would like to use Smokes Clear on them. But tumbled them for a few minutes to get...

    I think it is the beam of a heavy book press. Or some other kind of similar press.
