    Get some vasaline from the dollar store and you have the basic ingredients for River's Simple Lube. Then you can experiment to your hearts content.

    Pricey is right. Things like this cause an internal struggle. I want that and its priced about right. You want to support the small guys. Then I look at my budget, double check my wallet and life goals. Then go I go cast some more buck shot with my...

    I use the Lee Load All 2. I cant compare to anything else. It works just fine for me. I shoot a couple hundred rounds a month for clay busting and just started buck and slugs. I am sure my horrible crimps would be just as bad on any other machine....

    Looked like short sight radius to me. Doubt it shoots significantly better than my Hipoint Carbine in .45acp. Plus you could just about get 2 Hipoints for the price of one of those. Interesting though.

    Best tip I saw was someone who drilled a hole in powder/shot bin just smaller than the foam earplugs you can get for the range. Need to make a change? Grab a bowl, pull the plug, same on the other side. Made things a lot simplier. Me I went with...

    "Thy will be done, on Earth as it is heaven" When you MEAN that, have surrendered to HIS will. Then you are starting to get there. Trial and adversity come to all of us. We are all tested. It is not that GOD wants us to be miserable. But...

    As long as you cast bullets with perfect bases, then pan lubing can be difficult. Thrity cals are pretty easy, 27 cals get a little frustrating but its those darn 6.5s that will have you cursing the gods of dominos as the fall over like lemmings. I...

    Updates are very much appreciated. A part of me says that he has won the fight, he will pull through. Long and hard the recovery will be. But he has the chance. Still praying. It is very very much encouraging when you read updates to feel...

    Not many of those in my history. Generally speaking if it performs well enough to be useful I kept it. I've sold a few, and the few I've sold I do not miss at all. Perfect example was a really really nice Brazilian .410 side by side. Hand cut...

    I have shot #1 buckshot through both of my H&R 2.5 inch barreled revolvers. Actually found it worked best squished slightly then run through a .314 lee sizing die. Easy to load, grouped well enough on paper at 20 feet. So then I tried some...

    I just told my wife about this. She looked at me, and calmly said "I was just told they need to pray for peace". He is angry, frustrated and fighting inside. Nothing makes sense, nothing works and he does not understand. It is my opinion...

    My dad worked up a recipe long long ago that was awesome. 50% Ground venison. 25% Fatty beef, cheapest fattiest you can find. 25% lean pork. He used mostly trimmed boston butt's, ie shoulder roasts. His theory was that pork fat runs out of...

    I do not do this often. Frankly it scares the **** out of me. "The Holy Spirit says" (The Lord is with him) (Everyone is trying) (But the Holy Spirit is afraid he is not going to make it) That is what I was given. I hope it brings you peace....

    I have thought of it. My problem is i am converting it to Grendel brass. People need to stop being cheap and shoot some brass for me to pick up. Either there are no people shooting brass 7.62x39 or the other range scroungers are cleaning it before i...

    Not with the 150 Gr. That mold is on my list since my .270 Win is my baby. I have a lot of experience with the Lee 130gr in .270 Win. Seat a couple thousands off the lands and you will be able to find a lot of good loads. There is another thread on...
