    I suspect it is all in the sausage. Salt and pepper also help, pepper in particular. My wife and I have been discovering that Cavendish greek seasoning adds a nice bit of flavor to foods that have grown tasteless with age. Might try it.

    I mostly use aluminum molds. You are right that they aren't the most temp stable. I dip the corner of the mold in the melt for 20 seconds to warm it. Then I have a wet sponge that I tap the mold to every 2 or 3 cast. I watch how long it takes the...

    Rcmaveric replied to a thread Lube questions in Boolit Lube !
    I pan lubed for over a year. Using a cake cutter makes it about doable with any lube. Up grading to a lubsizer was awesome. With base line of 80ish bucks you can find a deal on here and Ebay. Just be careful of price gauging on Ebay. You will find...

    Good for the two of you. I got off to a late start, was 44 when I found mine, 21.5 years later it keeps getting better. Takes teamwork, and no quitting. If you are going to do it you have to truly commit to it 150%. I think that very few...

    Well after reading everything Larry had written on the subject. I decided the easy answer was to stock Red Dot in quantity, and not bother with fillers. That being said I did shoot some 20 rounds with dacron, as larry suggested in my Mosin. Got...

    I have used dacron in my .270 Winchester with 4198. I used about grain and made it fluffy with bullet pushing it down. Like others i have read the possible dangers. While it did tighten my groups noticable and made them more consistent. I am more of...

    Never hunted with mine but if I did I would use as large a bullet as I could. I have figured out a method of putting a flat nose on round nose Lee Boolits. So in my case I would choose the Lee .312 185 gas checked, lubed with BLL. I would size to...

    I drooled over several of these. Really tempted by the Rolling Block in .32sw long. But I really don't need another range toy, and I've shot my wad for this month. Great pictures, awesome writeups, best of luck to you sir.
