    I have seen "baseline"( a "benchmark") to work from, suggested 3 times in the now 21 posts before this one. Tazman, Dverna & me, each mentioned it. Doing so removes any doubts you may have with any reloads you have tried & likely is how Glock was...

    Y'know... I am now wondering, "How often" do some folks cast?". The Fall casting session I posted about earlier is to cover for not casting til after the cold of Winter, means I cast those boolits in Mid-late October, and do a lot at one time,...

    Since I do not usually count boolits when casting, and I do multiple calibers using different cavity moulds I usually go by the amount of ingots used for guesstimate of how many cast in a session. I also set a certain amount of time I will cast...

    Have you tried getting a baseline of accuracy with a run of factory jacketed rounds from the same maker & not just your reloads? IF nothing else, that might narrow things down to allow you to find out if it is the reloads, your aging eyes or...

    Even after 38 years of marriage this type of thing still happens to me on occasion. A recent one came to mind as I read the story. You want to find out more about what sort of gal she is? Tell her why you gave her the advice ya did, and why...

    JBinMN replied to a thread Advice please in Casting for Shotguns
    In a pinch, heating up a 4d ( 4 penny) finishing nail with a propane torch held in a pair of vice grips will likely do the job of making the divot/dimple, if a pen type soldering iron is not available. Once again, just tossing out ideas & trying...

    JBinMN replied to a thread How’s my flare ? in Cast Boolits
    One thing no one has mentioned is that unless you are trimming your cases to be the same length, there is going to be some leeway in case length & that will have an effect on just how much flare you get. Meaning that if you set the flare for one...

    I called mine, "Shop" a while back, in my "Handloading" bookmark folder. Good idea to make it easy to find them. ;)

    JBinMN replied to a thread How’s my flare ? in Cast Boolits
    Ditto the other two... now 3 replies. I would back off a little as well. I don't like to see a flare that allows "shadow" when the boolit is sitting like the one in the pic. I like the edges of the case mouth to just be a "smidge" more than...

    Axe, or small sledge & a chisel will work to get chunks off. A Sawzall(reciprocating saw) has worked for me as well on occasion.

    I have used those links myself. It is sad they are not there anymore. One would think that they would like to have an easy access ad on forums like this one be here all the time since the CB.GL forum is dedicated to firearms & components etc. &...

    I know of fellows who put a large lockbox out at the end of their long driveways for their UPS & other delivery drivers, but I am not sure of the arrangements on how they hide the key, or what arrangements are made. The lock boxes are weighted down,...

    I use spacers to change from 38 Spec. to .357 mag. when using a single stage press. Keeps the lock nuts in place. Once I started using turret presses with the removable turret plates, I just made some "dedicated" plates for each & did not use the...

    It would have been interesting to see a pic, or two. I have mistakenly did a double primer before, but the second primer just would not fit in the case with the other in it, so it just kind of blocked the effort & when I lowered the ram, I saw...
