    IIRC there is calcium in battery plates. I did use old batteries many years ago but disassembled them where I worked and could dispose of the waste materials there. The lead was used to cast muzzleloader balls and fishing sinkers. Sinkers worked...

    I use only linotype for the 22 caliber bullets with Hornady copper gas checks. If you want to shoot at 3,000 fps or faster heat treating the lino is the way to go. I have obtained 3,619 fps average by doing this. The 3,619 fps loads were for...

    leadman replied to a thread Truck camper? in Our Town
    When I built mine I used 2"X3" boards, notched to fit the side rails which were 2"X4", screwed and Gorilla glued. Saved some weight and proved to be strong enough to survive for about 20 years so far. I sold truck and camper to a friend, who sold it...

    I have found the Lyman 323470, about 170grs, Loverin style with mostly bore sized body shoots very well in my RB. I load this in front of 12grs of Unique and it is very accurate even at 100 yards and makes a good small game load.

    sharps4590, the Rolling Block is different in when you do have a problem and the gun breaks the most likely location for the loose parts is in an eye socket. Use caution in loading for these old guns. There are pictures on the internet of blocks...

    Most of the newer RVs are made with those foam panels. Problem is they tend to delaminate if water should get to them. I currently have this issue with my motorhome. If I build another truck camper or other similar item I will use the aluminum...

    leadman replied to a thread Truck camper? in Our Town
    I built a slide in camper for my '88 Dodge Dakota 4X4 many years ago. I used a wood frame, foam insulation, aluminum skin on luan on the outside. Bought 3 windows from Home Depot and a roof vent with fan from an RV store. I was given an old set of...

    I have a Ruger American Predator and it shoots great. I bought Hornady and Winchester ammo to start with. The Winchester match ammo sucks, not very accurate. Hornady ammo is good so I also bought some empty brass. There is a wide spread in the...

    I remember an ad by Weatherby from back in the 60s or 70s about their scopes being copied. Nothing new.

    I have a Contender barrel in each, one is about 12", the other 21". Velocity is the same in both with max jacketed loads. Both shoot cast with excellent accuracy. Lee makes 30-30AI dies, may have to polish the sizer out to fit like I had too, or I...

    I shot a lot of 445SM years ago. Saw no reason to use a large rifle primer but it should not harm the case as only the depth is changed a little. My gun was a Contender 14" barrel that started life as a 44 mag. I found it did not have quite the...
