    GunnyMack, Welcome to the forum. You should reconsider getting a good cast bullet reloading manual, like the Lyman cast bullet handbook 4th Ed, which I think is one of the very best. Not only for Data, but for all the other info too. You don't...

    Well, I guess I'm the odd man out. I actually enjoy going to the dentist. I was blessed with very good teeth and still have all of them, but I do seem to have an issue with heavy tartar buildup, I go every 6 months for a cleaning. My dentist just...

    That may have been a glitch with the old software??? You weren't the only one who previously had that issue.

    I had some fraudulent charges on mine, a couple months after the change-over to Cap One...I don't recall if that was one or two years ago? Anyway, I had them cancel the old card and issue a new card with new number.

    I've planted "Hardneck" Garlic for several years, planting in Oct (usually late Oct) and harvesting in July. Some years, I've had some failure and I may have figured out why that is. When I was talking to other growers at this year's Garlic...

    The Garlic thread got me to thinking...because I do love Garlic. I recall a TV episode from long ago, where Julia Childs used a crazy amount of Garlic in her Mashed Potatoes. 30 cloves according to this link....

    quick reply didn't 'hang up' on me. side note: I find it necessary to "restart" my computer once every couple days, while my computer isn't that old, it was a back to school cheapy, so it doesn't have a fast processor or a lot of Ram...So as the...

    If this neighbor was your Best friend, than I could understand why you are angry. But since you don't elaborate on the relationship, I can only assume the neighbor is a mere acquaintance. Yes, I agree with you that he should have kept his word and...

    I believe my Lyman ingot mold has all the letters in correct format, but I have a Saeco ingot mold that has one letter that's mirror image...at one time, I thought that was rare.

    Some time ago (I'm not telling you how long, as it's embarrassing), I ordered a new RIA 1911 in 38 super, because I just had to have one, and they are soooo reasonably priced. I also bought new dies and new brass. It's all sitting in a stack in...

    If you like canned meat, then put it in jars and process it. I like to put a little smoke on it first...like 10 minutes in a smoker, meat is still raw, cut in cubes then put in Jars with your favorite spices. I will eat the venison straight out of...

    I use a hot citric acid bath to clean heavily tarnished cases. The only times I'd got the pink brass, was when the brass had some spots so tarnished it was black...and the only pink on the cases were the spots where the black tarnish was removed. ...

    I use a crock pot for cleaning heavy tarnish off of old brass. I don't like to setup for a Hot citric acid bath unless I have enough brass to fill the crock pot about 4 or 5 times. That is about how much the solution will clean before it...

    I haven't done much in the reloading room lately. BUT, yesterday, during the House impeachment show, I decided to sort and package Primers. A couple years ago, I acquired 4 large pill bottles of unused bulk packed Primers. I knew that style of...

    I've never made an extract, but when I have made a digestif or other type of liqueur, I like to use the cheapest triple distilled Vodka available, because I don't want any other flavors influencing the key ingredient/s. I would think the same would...
