    Sounds like a good idea, im tired of picking wood chips out of my freshly cast boolits. When the wooden wackers that ive been using get too bad, they get reduced to stirring the wax for fluxing, figure its just as good as the ever popular...

    A lot of hate for amerc brass. Leads me to believe it is well deserved. Especially considering the only redeeming opinion is to turn it into a jacketed boolit. Thoroughly enjoyed the gluing primers in anecdote.

    Theres still no way to get 20 pounds of pure into that pot. Even if i had left out the pewter. Maybe this bugs me because before i got my scale that could precisely handle lead in weights from 0 to 30 pounds i was only weighing my pewter/tin...

    My lucky chrono didnt like me making his battle scars known. He now randomly will start displaying in mps rather than fps. To fix i have to turn it off, set it yo mps and let it boot up. Then turn it off, and then set it to fps. Lesson:...
