    She's been mentioned. But the Book: " I Married Adventure by Osa Johnson" . If you read between the lines it'll put chills down your spine.

    I've got a 6" my DAD bought in the late 1950's. It's been fed a steady diet of the LYMAN #358429 cast of 50/50 COWW/#2 over 5.0grs of UNIQUE for as long as I can remember. It has the stock brown plastic grips with a TYLER T-Grip Adapter. POI is an...

    I've used the LYMAN catalog & Reloading Manuals for years. The cross reference from the LA Metallic Silhouette Club is Excellent. I've printed it out and it's come in very handy. But It's not perfect. I found that out the hard way. Spent a few...

    My Family has given all. We have lost MEN in every War since 1861. I can't list them all. It's too painful. I grew up seeing it in the faces of both my Grandmother's, My Mother, My Aunt's. The stories of Men I never got to know. My Wife...

    Now I remember why I gave up on .30H/.357H so many years ago. I just switched to the 7mmTCU & .35REM in 14" barrels. Made life much easier. And a 10" .357MAX if I needed it. Maybe not quite the velocity of the .30H or .357H in the .357MAX. But far...

    That load of 6.9grs of WW231/HP38 is just under the max of 7.1grs under the 250gr Bullet. I have a copy of the old HODGDON Cowboy Reloading Handout. It lists a starting load of 5.8grs of WW231/HP38. The UBERTI Henry/'73/'66 have a pretty strong...

    The only problems I can see, is there is no heating pad for the backrest on the work/reloading bench chair. And if that's your definition of a "cluttered" room, then you, Sir have a severe case of ocd.

    There were molds made to take a zinc washer that was put into the mold before filling with alloy. My DAD & his buddies tried them. Slow casting and accuracy disappointing.

    Dipper casting with a one or two cavity mold is a great way to learn. Just be sure use a GOOD dipper like LYMAN'S. And please don't buy the tiny Lee "pot". Four pounds is barely enough to get your mold up to casting temp, even if you preheated...

    No they sure don't make them like they used too. I saw one at the True Value. I could lift it off the ground with two fingers of my bad hand. The one I bought when they came out in 1976 is built like a tank and still tough enough for an...

    Would you really want to cast & load right out in front of a storage locker. Who knows what type of people would walk by, watch what you're doing. Maybe call the Cops or wonder how to break into your locker.
