    No unless you want hard ingots. As soon as you melt them to cast bullet anything game is gone . I see no reason at all except maybe to be able to handle them quicker

    I Tried out the LCP and I also tried Kel-tec PF9. I chose the pf9 Better trigger, it’s 9 mm not 380, it fits just fine in my pocket. Oh yeah and did I say it’s about the a third of cost for a Ruger. I have no problems doting the eyes on a...

    I get 15 cents a pound for zink and steel wheel weights and $1.25 for brass cases ( I only scrap the ones I can’t reload anymore. That goes without saying) from the local scrap yard.

    Never mind. Probably a little heavy for my 1:8 16” barrel. I’d hate to waste match bullet.

    I was out riding my bicycle this past weekend. I took a short-cut through a parking lot when I spied this wheel weight that was about 4” long by, easy, 3/4” wide! This thing had to weight a pound! I jumped off the bike, letting it crash into some...

    I like mine. The only criticism is the magnifying tube. Ya have to stabilize it as others have suggested. Or do like I do and use a jewelry loop and your calibers. I find it pretty spot on.
