    At one point I was dealing with some late blooming wisdom teeth. One of which got impacted, stuck at an angle and hooked on the molar in front of it. My wife had pushed me towards Aleeve. Finally surgery happened and they pulled the impacted one,...

    Clean oil and put away the molds. Empty the pot. Stack it all away neatly. You'll be back. Till then, well a man has to do what a man has to do. Take care!

    Because there is no sense in it. "Policy" is written from the top, imposed on the rest. Because it comes from the top if you get caught failing to follow it, it can get you fired. But because it comes from the top, it does not have to make...

    I swear my molds all have a personality of their own and as well as the alloy sometimes makes them change a bit. I just tinker with and try different things. Like tapping the mold, adjust the tempeture of the melt, run the mold hot, pressure fill...

    Same way actors take a stance on guns and politics and pretend to play Big Billy Baddy in a movie. All about that money. Say one thing to appease one side and then do another to appease the other and make a nice profit in the end.

    Tell me about it, 60+ hour work weeks make restocking the cashes tough and relaoding. Been trying to restock my bullet cashes for a few weeks now. Set you a mobile reloading area next to the recliner and make you a mobile casting station.

    My Mk III 22/45's agree with the above. No Rem ammo at all goes into mine, it just does not like it. CCI, federal is ok. But Fed Auto match bulk runs like clockwork and gives great short range accuracy. 20 feet it will put 10 in a popcap...

    ZN is not all bad as long as its not a high percentage. Run the pot hot and cast away. As long as the bhn is around 12 i would use and find a way to make it cast. If you that scared of a touch of ZN just melt flux with the blue copper crystals or...

    While doing load work ups, every other group i inspect the bore. When i get to hotter loads i check after every group when pushing the envelope. Once i have load or bullet size chosen that produces good accuracy without leading. I dont worry about...

    If youre turning the empty jackets into ingots for resale, most places wont pay top dollar for uncertified ingots. Its best to leave the scraps in its original state. Polishing and cleaning could add value. However if the extra expense and effort...

    That could start a debate. I make my own. For pistols about anything will work. Bens red works great for riffles. Even tumble lubing works good with BLL or 45/45/10. Check the lube stickies. Cant go wrong with any of the manufactured ones either. I...

    Another vote for BLL here. Cept I like to run mine with 1% Carnuba wax melted into the mix for clean shiny bores. Personally I found pan lubing and cake cutting a messy pain in the posterior. Hit BLL early hit the ground running and never...

    Comes down to bullet fit. I leaded up my Yugo SKS with 50 rounds, took 3 days to get it clean. But it also got rid of the dark gunk in the bottom of the grooves. But I was running undersized bullets, with the wrong lube and pushing the power...

    "Peace like a river" I have been blessed and blessed again. The best part is it will tell you when you make mistakes. I know prayer works, I have seen it work for me, others in my family, and many here. You will be in mine.
