    Tried citric acid on my brass. Works great. Now I use it all the time.

    In my experience a metal shroud to direct all heat to the bottom of whatever youíre melting in makes things much more efficient. Especially if thereís some wind. Go with a Dutch oven with a bail that goes from one side th the other. I have been...

    I started this thread when I started looking at the boolits from my Lee 300 230gr blackout mold. They seem to be more or less boat tailed. I may be wrong, but I don’t think this round is expected to be used at long ranges. That’s why I wonder if a...

    Iím a newbie to casting, but am really excited about how it can bring costs down. Iíve never seen leading before. I have a 6.5 mm bore, so itís not so easy to look into it. I have been experiencing with gas checked Alox as well as some...
