    I wash my bowl...wash my BBs....then reuse both with a different color. Just make sure its bone dry when you start your next batch. If you have any dampness....you won't get a static generated. redhawk

    Another vote for 231....I also run a lot of Red Dot. Both are pretty hard to beat for light-mid level loads. redhawk

    An old propane tank is perfectly safe to use a cutoff wheel on....but ONLY after you've purged it. Remove the top valve safety cage first (a 3 lb hammer will break the welds)...then use a wrench and same hammer to unscrew the valve from the...

    I'd pass too. IF that weld doesn't hold...you could be looking a some pretty serious burns when it lets loose full of molten lead. Get a propane tank and cut it in half. It will hold over 200 lbs....its certainly enough. redhawk

    I've shot some off center sprue boolits. I've never seen any difference. A full cavity is a full cavity. Where the sprue is located is of no consequence. redhawk

    Yeah...LAGS is right. I get cratering like this on several of my older firearms. The primer hole gets larger, or sometimes even out of round due to use/age. Some of the older shotguns had primer hole "inserts" that could be replaced (O/U and SxS)...

    Not to me. They look to be within the normal range.....when its over pressure the rounded edges, of the primer where it meets brass, will fill in. (have a right angle in some extreme cases) redhawk

    I disassemble the die then use paint thinner. Bore brushes help get the die clean and a rag to get the seater stem clean. redhawk
