    You can but realize that those thin walls will quickly over anneal. I do anneal revolver cases but I'm careful and have a Vertex Annealer and used Tempilaq to set my dwell times. I would make an educated guess the 44-40 would be in and out of my...

    McMaster-Carr. MP's won't have the brass insert either. The metric (MP) set screws will come in a pack of 5 and are more expensive than the SAE, but as you noted you won't bugger up the bolt anymore. Another way, and cheap, is to cut a very...

    Well, I just don't know. A good example would be I made a promise to myself I wouldn't get into casting for autos for myself and have kept that promise. My shooting partner wanted a 230 grain for a 45 so I got one. As it wasn't for me and I will...

    DHDeal replied to a thread sticky to open mold in Cast Boolits
    I do pretty much what Mk42gunner does. I do use a lot of MP Molds so I do turn them upside down but they're HP molds. If your mold is just occasionally sticky, do what all of the other posters suggested, lube the pins and handle bolt. If it is...

    I think what happens more often is one beats a mold to death than it being actually worn out. Not saying you've done that at all, but I've seen some molds that a ham fisted Neanderthal beat with a rock and considered it worn out. I can go...

    The 45 Auto Rim steel dies are in the older style box with the tab that locks the lid. They are in very good shape and obviously havent been used much. I bought them for a project that didn't happen like I expected so they just take up space. $45...

    DHDeal replied to a thread Boolit sizing? in Cast Boolits
    I'll say the same about calipers versus micrometers. The micrometer will be more exact and repeatable. I use Mitutoyo in both and trust both but I'll unbox the micrometer for all things I want to know what size something is. I still use the calipers...

    I started out with BAC and found it to be tacky but I do live in the state of South Sauna. I bought some Carnuba Blue and found it to be less tacky in my environment. If I lube any in the winter I'll still use a little heat for a better flow. No...

    While it's not exactly what you were asking about, I mix high gloss clear with my "colors" and get a translucent/mottled shade. For whatever reason no matter how mixed the powders get, I get that mottled look. It's a full coat every time. When...

    I don't remember which one I got from Amazon a few years back, but it has long arms. I will use it many times in the day when I want to really see something. The articulating arms also help when I just want to use it for the light. I ended up...
