    I would be interested also, I shoot several dozen different calibers that weren't designed for slow lead boolits. They generally are a hoot to take to the range. I've got a Sheridan Silver Streak, may have to give it a try with air gun pellets. ...

    I did it with 14 grains of 2400 with Lee liquid lube before I went to Ben's liquid lube and had good luck. I think Ed Harris did an article on reduced loads using the Lee lube on some of his plinking loads. Might try a search here. May be some...

    The mailman lied, it was supposed to be there Friday. But it is a long way to California from Michigan.

    Some where in this I believe the OP mentioned not being adverse to used. Start with Craigslist--there are usually a number of reloading items for sale. Do several searches--reloading, reloader, Mec, RCBS, Lyman, Hornady, Lee, Dillon--these will get...

    I've cured 99% of the primers on the floor on my old Rockchuckers by putting a short piece of McDonald's drink straw in the ram, it channels the primers down and lets them drop neatly into the primer catcher. I think the new Rockchucker drops the...

    And I think a plastic molded loading block, it was on the bench, I tried to fit it in the box. Don't remember if I got it in. Box is now sealed and I don't remember seeing on the bench when I left the shop to come in the house and post that the box...

    800b, bought from a widow, had sat in a basement for 10 years. It need to be completely disassembled and cleaned to get it running again. I think the best thing would have been to send it back to the factory for reconditioning. Getting it back in...

    I've got 12 gauge in a mec 9000, 2 mec 650's and a P-W 800, 20, 28 gauge in mec 650's, and 410 in a mec grabber. Mec's work for me, the P-W is too finicky, when it's adjusted right it is great. Too much drama if you get out of sync. One of...

    It came from an older book on loading British double rifles, the author claimed the formula came from the distributor of 5744, problem is it was an older book and I think the distribution rights for 5744 have gone through several hands since then....

    Annealed batches of 7x57 and 8x57. Polished batches of 303 British, 38 special, 204 Ruger 270 Winchester and 6br Norma. Dropped off three 45 ACP boolit molds for a buddy to try. He's just getting started in casting. Asked him how much lead...

    If you have Ken Waters' Pet Loads book, check in there. I'm pretty sure there's an article that may help. Accurate also has a formula for using 5744 in any case. With my memory, I won't quote it without having it in front of me but I know I've...

    Cool stuff, I've never seen anything that wasn't common wedding gift kind of stuff that no one would miss. A few pieces it was probably a merciful end to be cast into boolits after enduing life as a mystery decoration on some little old lady's...

    I've been lucky. I've also walked away from probably twice that much pewter at sometimes ridiculous prices. Was at one Salvation Army store, $50 on a dented, beat up bowl that might have made 2 lbs. Told the manager that the price was wrong, she...
