    That is the same technique I used and trained other LEO's to use. We used either the Safariland (pictured in the video) or HKS speed loaders. I could execute the reload in 1 second from an open pouch or 1 1/2 seconds from a closed snapped pouch. ...

    Lyman's formula for making #2 alloy (BHN 15 - 16) has always worked excellently for me using Linotype. It make an excellent alloy and since the antimony and tin are balanced (5% each) softer alloys can easily be made, especially 95/2.5/2.5 by...

    I read somewhere that firemen would/could not be hurt by exploding ammo, it wouldn't penetrate their fire suits. There is no barrel/chamber to help the cartridge build pressure or direct the boolit.

    Had mine for a couple years & it works, "OK", I guess. I don't remember the exact cost, but I want to say it was around 4-45 frogskins then. Not too bad I reckon.
