    Mods, if this is the wrong section for this post please move it with my apologies. I have come into some older powder that Id like to identify. I was given a bag full of a couple hundred hand loaded .38 Specials. The boolits are about 125gr and...

    TyGuy replied to a thread Still weird shortages? in Our Town
    Our local news reported certain Tyson plants being trimmed lean and eventually closed due to workers with the Ronas. That was months ago but those plants process hundreds of thousands of birds each day. If they slow down due to lowered staff or stop...

    That would be good time. The AK guys have the Red Oktober competition. The sub machine gun guys have their competitive circuit. It wouldn’t surprise me if there is an obscure LMG competition somewhere out there. Me personally, I’d want to...

    The pan magazines for them were really cheap there for a while when there were quite a few parts kits coming in. I haven’t seen any listed recently but also haven’t been actively looking for them. They are neat guns but the semi conversion usually...

    TyGuy replied to a thread Percussion caps in Muzzleloading.
    I placed an order for their cap punch and some of their PrimeAll mix to try out a few weeks ago. I never received a confirmation email so a few days ago I sent them an email via their contact page. They got back to me pretty quickly saying they are...

    If you’re only getting 30% zinc and plastic you’re doing better than most. At my shop I’m lucky if 10% of the bucket is lead.

    TyGuy replied to a thread giant gun sale in Factory Rifles
    The auction fees are pretty similar for the major auto auctions like Barrett Jackson or Mecum. Buyer and seller cough up a hefty percentage of every sale price. I have a friend who sells at Mecum sometimes and has given me the rundown on how the...

    If you want an original I would check with Numrich’s or Apex Gun Parts. Personally, I would use the pin you have and cut it to size.

    The first reel I was proud of was a Pflueger Criterion that became my go-to from middle school until a couple years ago. I still have it and it still works but it is WORN OUT! I have no idea how many fish kissed the air thanks to that reel. It...

    My dad used to talk about saving brass for reloading but never bothered to actually learn to do it. He bought me a 50 cal Hawken repop when I was a kid and got a Lee .490 RB mold to feed it. The mold just sat on the shelf unopened for nearly 15...

    I learned a lot reading the Lyman #3. It takes you through the historical progression of lead projectiles, through the basics, and into some pretty in depth science. Its is a bit outdated but is a decent foundation from which to start. More current...
