    Man, that is truth beyond many people's knowledge. I was stopped in a construction zone and got rear ended at 50 mph by a texting 30 year old uninsured loser and we got hurt pretty bad and totaled my MB 300d. Good thing I was driving a full size...

    Oh I don't know......I sold off moulds that I had not used in years and had duplicates for......I mean, how many 9mm, 38/357 and 44 moulds do you need? I turned them into 100 oz. of silver. I can cast every caliber that I shoot. Turn that unused...

    25 years ago, my then 12 year old son and I took our TV to the range and murdered it. Yes, we cleaned up the mess. Very liberating. No streaming either. Working, reading, writing, casting and reloading in the cold months, yard work and gardening...

    That is one variable to work with. It is interesting how many variables there are: * Lead temp * mould temp * alloy * pace between casts * steel or aluminum mould * cooling down between casts via fan or damp cloth I am sure I forgot one or...

    Ditto on that method. i cast with 4 cavity (at minimum) Hensley & Gibbs moulds and keep a wet washcloth next to the pot. When the bullets start getting frosty, I empty the mould, close it, then roll the mould side to side on the washcloth. Cools...

    I guess I am old school. Magma lube and a heated Star Sizer is all I have used for many years.

    We hit the easy button here in New Hampshire. We let a guy tap our trees and he gives us free syrup. He has a sugar house just down the road from us. Bumped into him at a funeral yesterday and he said he was about ready to go. He makes maybe 100...

    FISH4BUGS replied to a thread Wet Snow in Our Town
    Here in NH the power company has been on a rampage for 5 years cutting back limbs 15' from the power lines. They also have cut down sick or dying or dead trees that COULD fall on the power lines. They call those nuisance trees. They cut two in our...

    I was at a yard sale and bought a box full of old shotgun reloading tools. Hey....for $20 I figured I couldn't go wrong. How can I go about identifying what they are and what they do? Google is helpful but I would like additional resources to...

    Since I shoot a lot of full auto, my brass is stored in kitty litter plastic tubs (probably 4 gallon) and 5 gallon buckets. Back when brass was cheap (9mm @ $10/1000 delivered) I bought a ton. 380 is the same way. 45 ACP has 2 5 gallon buckets. I...
