    Sadly, they are stacked, about 4 high, right in front of my work bench...stumbling over them was incorrect terminology(sorry), I should have said, "in the way...and reaching over them is a pain"

    I am hankering to do some smelting. I haven't done any for a couple years. I have 50 to 100 lbs of range scrap plus another 200+ lbs of unfired boolits and random fishin weights to melt. I'm just waiting for the mud to dry up in my smelting...

    I'm not sure what pressure you are loading to, but if your 20:1 has been working good for you, Then you will probably want to mix about 6 lbs of your pure lead to 1 lb of linotype, that will bring the antimony down to about 2%, but tin will be well...

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread Marlin or Henry in Leverguns
    I quit the 44 leverguns, due to how Marlin and Henry make the barrel groove diameter and twist rate. If you can find a Marlin in 41 and can afford it, I'd buy it. I have one and love it. Last year I bought a Henry Big Boy Steel in 41. I like...

    I no longer load 44 mag, but I did REALLY like HS-6 for mid level loads in 44 mag, back when I loaded for it. I've never tried it in the 500.

    I agree, "I think most of the wax around cheese is a Microcrystalline food grade low melt temp" I have saved some wax from a brand of Irish cheddar cheese, it had a pretty thick layer of wax. It's surely not hard like Carnuba Wax is. This...

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread Venison?? in Our Town
    Yep, this is what I would do. Generally you can both see (light colored area) and smell freezer burnt meat...the smell is more of a "stale" type smell, not a rotten smell. It's easy to trim it off.

    I've heard about problems with "UPS Stores". I am lucky to have a UPS regional Hub in my small town, never had any major problems with them. Although one time, when shipping 5 bricks of 22lr ammo, I was asked how many rounds? Since I never had...

    I use to think about this all the time. Was all the good 'stuff' on the right side of the pot and all the not so good 'stuff' on the left? So I started to mix the pot with a paint stir stick. I stopped using the sticks and went to a old fork with...

    Good question. Probably what Trapper9260 referenced " they did not offer them ( at this auction, at this time. )." Now, what " They been going down hill for the past years." is referencing to, I'm not sure. I hope not NAFA, cause I doubt that...

    Monday bump. I know these are rare because this is the first one I have seen. Does anyone on Cast Boolits even have one of these? Google is not my friend here! MCRW is also the same name as some process so Google is worthless on this tong tool.

    They don't make the 41 cal SWC in 6 cavity molds either. I asked 3 months ago. I got this response, "Unless you buy 30 molds, There is a $175 setup fee"
