    I do not know about the sticks themselves, but lube on a bullet does eventually dry out to be less effective. Based on what I've seen, I would think a loaded round should be good for 20-30 years. They will certainly still fire after that, but the...

    It's difficult to say, but I can say they are plenty hard for the job. The variables are the temperature they were when quenched, and how cold the water was. The hotter the balls, and the colder the water, the harder they will be. Anytime I've...

    Yes, I think you will find casting the Lee slugs is not that bad. As for the buckshot, the melt doesn't have to be super hot. If you can get to 750-800 degrees, you should be ok. The key is to get the mold hot, which is regulated by the pace you...

    Yes, there used to be more than one American shotgun primer. The #57 being one of the more common ones. As far as I know, they have not been used since the 80's though, so I wouldn't worry about that. All the current American hulls use the same size...

    That doesn't sound far off at all. I'd have to double check, but cast of clip on wheel weight plus tin, mine come out pretty close to 310 grains when lubed and checked. Lyman #2 should be lighter.

    Sure, it might not ring, but you still get the notification. It doesn't stop texts either, which are most of the problem. I've had the same phone number for over 10 years, but I'm considering changing it just to stop them. It's so annoying, I can't...

    My dad ended up injured at work a while ago, and they were telling him he needs a fusion. He told them no way, and did physical therapy, and still does it on his own. He gets around as good as he ever did, can lift well over 50 pounds, no pain at...

    The best use of Linotype in my opinion is mixed if you have a source of soft lead. Things like roof flashing, stick on wheel weights, lead piping, X-ray lead, etc. I even heard of a guy who ran some kind of air rifle club, and melted the captured...

    I ran into something similar recently with Buffalo Arms. They state 50 pounds of lead will fit in a medium flat rate shipping box. So I added 50 pounds, and shipping was something like $27. I called them, and asked why it wasn't $15 something, as...

    I would just keep using it as is, with less heat. The last time I switched lubes, I had multi colored bullets for a while, but they worked just fine.

    I've tried rifled foster slugs from every rifled gun I have. I've never had them lead at all. My roughest bore is in my barrel for my Benelli Nova, a barrel made by the older pre-2005 Ithaca company. It is so rough you can see the tool marks as...

    I guess I just assumed you sorted bullets, since you mentioned competition pistols. If you don't, sort your bullets both visually, and weight. When I did that above test, I had culled any bullet that was plus or minus 0.2 grains. That was not a...

    I edited my original post due to the mistake. Yes, the bullet you linked in post #4 is correct. It will likely drop larger than .457", should be close to .459". If you powder coat, that should add nearly .002" too. Bullseye is just like Unique,...

    For your purposes, I would suggest the Lee 405 grain plainbase bullet. It's inexpensive, and accurate. Edit: OOPS, I mixed up the 5 and 0. While the 450 grain could work, the 405 grain has a crimp groove that should be in the right place for a...
