    Minerat replied to a thread Furnace cleanup in Casting Equipment
    Mine wasn't quite that bad as I had been using it. I did what JonB suggested before I drained it and then gave it the Hydrogen Peroxide treatment. It did not look like the RCBS pot shown in the post, but it really cleaned scale off the rough iron...

    I don't gas check my 9mm but size them for the barrel and PC them. I run them at book levels for similar weight jacketed bullets with no leading problems. On the 308's I haven't played with that enough to have a opinion.

    Minerat replied to a thread wait,wait,wait in Our Town
    Here in Colorado we are considered felons when buying a gun until the CBI determines we are not. We have to go thru them and pay a $10.00 fee. A CCW permit gets you no special treatment you are still a felon until they bless your purchase. Last I...

    If you get the brass one be sure to season it by thoroughly cleaning with Dawn dish soap and cycling it by heating it to 400 degrees and let cool 4 times. This will add the patina so the boolits don't stick. If it has pins then you need to keep your...

    Your lost now, the bug has you and it will only get worse. Before long you will have more molds in sizes you don't have guns for, then it's dies, then a shell holder and finally brass. Then you will need a 45-70 1874 Sharps so you can use them and...

    That's some deep research and reading old posts. thanks for resurrecting it, I learned something new. I just started pressure casting with a ladle and have spiky flashing too if I don't hold the mould closed tight.

    We use them to haul gear around a sporting clays layout if we have to walk. If you can find one with bigger wheels get it. Costco has the one I have.

    I use one too. The bottles have what looks like a tire valve on one side near the screw stem. It is a bleeder valve that works opposite of a tire valve. You pull to let air out instead of push. So when filling use a small forceps to pill on it to...
