    I agree with the rock island! I can get a rock island combat classic for under $400 in a LGS! For a little more ya can get lot of gun! Can’t touch a Ruger for less than seven or 800! And I believe Rock Island was once a manufacturer for colt. ...

    poppy42 replied to a thread safe primer storage in Our Town
    If you wanted to be sure for insurance purposes I suggest that you look up the specific codes regarding primers and powder store for your municipality. Personally I wouldn’t store them in an outside shed unless it was in a temperature and moisture...

    12 and 20 gauge shotguns make great home defense weapons. Here’s the exception. People tend to believe the hype about shotguns. That hype being “ a shotguns are great because you don’t have to aim them, just point and pull the trigger” They...

    I size all my 9mm to .356 with zero leading an excellent accuracy. I cast and shoot Lyman 356402 -120 grn, RCBS 09-115-115 grain, Lee tl-356-2r 124grn, Lee tl-356-tc 124 grn, and Lee 356-2r 126 grn. I don’t powder coat my pistol Boolets. The...

    I'm fine on powder, mostly fine on primers but I need more SPP and LPP. I don't have what is considered lots of loaded ammo. I've been working with just 200 pieces of 44 magnum brass, and a batch of just 120+ 357 magnum brass. I have some other...

    The old style Lyman checks and the simple homemade ones could come off if the base of the bullet was seated into the body of the case. But the Hornady crimp on checks will not. They crimp on, you can't get them off with any ease with pliers. ...

    I've thought on it a while and I believe you're correct. Those old electrical systems were neat. I think the through stud insulators required about a 1/2-5/8 hole. I don't have one to measure.

    I appreciate the replies. I would think that you could roll a lubed bullet to embed polishing compound and it would still cut, primarily at the beginning of its entry into the barrel. Then the lube would start flowing and lessen the...

    Good score. I don’t want to burst your bubble but the average 5 gallon pail of wheel weights weighs about 125 pounds full to the top. That’s with about someplace between 30 to 50 percent usable wheel weights. Obviously if they’re all lead it’s...

    An 8 or a 402 will likely serve well. Pends on the size of the individual top punch and the bullets. Dimensions change slightly over manufacturing life. I use a 402 for the 31141. I spun it in a drill and rounded the inside edge. Neither...
