    Also, since we are talking about cutting/gathering firewood. I cut most of my firewood at a municipal compost site. The city will cut and drag whole trees from the boulevards or parks to the compost site and just leave them for people to cutup and...

    I thought a Face cord is 1/3 of a full cord ? full cord = 4'x4'x8' face cord = 16"x4'x8' (as sold in MN). BTW, almost all sellers in MN advertise face cord (also nicknamed a fireplace cord) and the going rate is around $125

    I load for everything I own (except 22), and a few I no longer have or are for family. I have dies for some I intended to own, but never obtained.

    It's the difference of being hit with a 1# anvil or a 1# pillow. One can kill ya and the other get your attention. In a cook-off, the lighter weight piece is the one propelled. The density difference between a boolit and an empty case is huge,...

    My parents also survived the depression by being thrifty. Nothing that could have a later use or repurpose was wasted. I am left with their collection and the trait that I inherited from them. While right at the moment we are in a much better...

    I would think it would be quite rare for a "mostly filled case do better" ...about the only time it would, is when you have a load of position sensitive powder where the load is less then 50% of case capacity.

    It depends on the Hotplate, Most old ones are 1500W and it should be run on it's own circuit. Two Lee pots (6 amps each) will be fine having both on one circuit. That's my 2

    I bet firing that would leave marks on the cases. Absolutely unacceptable. Any machinist or gunsmith could have easily made a correctly fitting part. Frank-certified machinist.

    Copperheads are only slightly hard to identify just before they sluff. Their patterns aren't as distinct then. They don't look anything like rat snakes. It's not like they are rare.

    Just a heads up ...Be careful... if you decide to add a hotplate to your casting setup. Because a 16 gauge extension cord is a bit light to run both (Lee pot and a 1000+ watt hot plate), actually a 14 gauge is probably a bit light as well. My hot...

    I don't recall exactly what OAL my Ruger 9e prefers when I use with the Lee 358-125-RF, but I do recall it wasn't at the crimp groove. Just assemble a some dummy rounds with various OAL and then do a plunk test with your gun, to find your OAL. ...

    My 2, I would steer clear of anything over 250gr in a 44 Mag Levergun that has a 1:38 Twist barrel. While some have had success with heavies, I have not...maybe it's me? BUT, since you have the mold, load some of your AC COWW boolits with a...
