    I ordered a .359 sizing kit. If nothing else, just for consistancy, and the fact these bullets are fired through multiple guns. I hope to retain the accuracy with this slight down sizing that I was getting before. It is nothing to shoot a 7 shot...

    I think "Dont sweat the small stuff" is good advice. I know some make a hobby out of perfection, but I can attest to the fact that my oversized, overweight, strait wheel weight elongated boolits cast by my newbee self will shoot ragged holes at 30...

    ive tried to check the primers but its hard to tell my winchester primers look so flat becore being shot. barrel looks fine as far as i can tell and bullets drop in freely on most some drop 3/4 in freely then take a very slight push

    Yup wish i'd have went this route. I bought a 6 cavity lee from midway and every cavity but 2 stick beyond use and even those 2 are sticky. Lee told me to send back to them but would provide postage paid and I dont like having to pay shipping and...

    I am willing to do the work. The cost savings over buying lead at over 1$ a pound out weighs anything else. The smelting process fills one of my off days and I still enjoy it. As far as sorting, the most I do is take out the valve stems that burn...

    Wow, 150$ per bucket!? Yes, this stuff has the cigarette butts, the valve stems, zinc, steel, and those annoying new plastic ones that melt. Surprising to see in just a few years how much less a bucket of wheel weights is yielding in lead. The stuff...

    I was into casting about 5 years back. After calling around to a ton of tire shops I only found one willing to sell me wheel weights. He didnt know a price so I offered 30$ a bucket. He was happy, and I was happy to have a source. I was melting down...
