    Mattw, I'm very happy that the Lee fits my rifle's chamber. I have a Lee 6 cavity mold in this bullet and can cast a bunch of them in a short amount of time and the mold was less than $40.00 new. I also have several NOE molds for other rifles...

    mattw, When I saw you first two photos I thought I was looking at the Lee 312-155, the C.E. Harris designed bullet. I use the Lee and I agree with you this is an ideal bullet for the blackout. I also had trouble with the D&H magazines and all GI...

    Tsubaki, Your gun likes the GI type magazines but I got nothing but jams out of them. I tried Magpul and everything has worked great since. It just goes to show that every gun is different and I would suggest to anyone that's having problems with...

    The bullet I use is the Lee 312-155 Harris designed bullet. It shoots and functions very well and you can get a six cavity mold to cast a bunch of bullet fast for not a lot of money. I size these at .311" and use the Lovex/Shooter World "Blackout"...

    I have a few metal tubes of stuff like grease. It's probably from the 70s, think they would be made of tin?

    Do they produce propellant powder for artillery or small arms, or do they produce high explosives for bombs, mortar shells, demolition, etc.?

    If you have in-home caregivers for her, no matter how good or nice the family thinks they are, get everything of value out of her house; not just banking records but jewelry, guns, anything small and valuable. You won't be seen as harsh or...

    A lot of newer 9mm/357 convertibles seem to run larger in the 9mm chamber mouths, say .358-.359. See if your 9mm chamber mouths slug about the same as the .357 chamber mouths. If that is the case research threads here about loading larger diameter...

    When it gets sluggish during casting I insert the tip of a bent paper clip, the big size clip, to knock loose whatever has partially clogged the tip.

    The same Marlin exhibition shooter came to my Jr. High school (I'm 69), believe it or not. He was Colonel something; don't remember his last name. It just came to me - his name was Colonel Larson.

    higgins replied to a thread Raccoon removal in Our Town
    A year ago I bought a Havahart no. 1079 trap. So far it's saved a lot of cat food (4 possums) and cat fights (2 feral cats). If you need to trap possums, a raw egg is good bait - I didn't believe it either until I caught a couple of possums...

    Whatever hardware fasteners you use, check them with a magnet to make sure they're not copper-plated steel, which will rust solid in no time. This is more common than you may think, with the mass merchandisers cutting corners wherever they can. I...

    I haven't pulled any loaded bullets to see if they're swaged down. I'm using wheelweight bullets so possibly not, given that I'm using a .38 spl. M-die. I noticed differing effort to seat bullets in various brands of brass. I want to select a...

    Like many of us, I have found that I need to load at least .358 bullets in my 9mm pistol. I am trying to use thinner brass so that there will be less squeezing of bullets. I am already using a .38 spl. M-die so the brass will be expanded more than...
