    Hey redhawk44, my friend ran into the same issues - no bullets (also had issue with no cases, found those after weeks of surfing the web haha). We got a couple of moulds from NOE. They run about 64 and 84 g lubed (Carnuba Red) and checked. ...

    I had the same issue with a used .22LR Ruger Old Model bearcat I picked up for a song, a decade ago. I did much the same as you did, and found some ammo (Federal bulk) that chambered & ejected freely - which I use exclusively in my specific gun....

    . At one time or another Ruger RF revolvers had either a firing pin recess around the rear face, or not. If you contact their customer service,Ruger would most likely make it right, but might need the entire revolver to fit a new...

    Rhineland Arms uses the same barrel nut system as Savage. What you are seeing is normal for that system.

    That is great that some of the designs are coming back. I used to do a lot of business with Fajen and Bishop. At one time between the two they had around 6,000 patterns.

    ADI actually manufacture many of the Hodgdon powders. Hodgdon do the rebranding so to speak. If the above equivalent shows an ADI powder with a Hodgdon equivalent, then ADI manufactured it - mostly. An example of where ADI do not manufacture...

    Sorry that I was closer to boiling point of zinc than melting point. My purpose in mentioning zinc was that if you leave a single zinc wheel weight at the bottom of an over loaded smelting pot of lead wheel weights, it's entirely likely that the...

    Thank you Ronnie, for that reminder. It is easy to major in the minors and forget or take for granted the overwhelming truth - our sins are forgiven. Without an understanding of sin, a strong theology of sin, Christ was just a good example and...

    I use exactly your friends process but use Tung Oil (the real thing, available through Woodcraft) instead of BLO. Two oils completely polmerize - or harden - when drying. Tung Oil and Walnut Oil. I use Walnut oil on bowls. Sanding in the oil is...

    Looks interesting to me, but then I'm not one to criticize those in search of a better mouse trap. My stuff works just fine as is. If I find I want to try something new, I'll have an option.

    Enjoyed the report. As long as it's a quick, humane kill, it's all good. Meat in the fridge is a good thing. I've toned down my .30-6 load some, but you're right anything around 165 in the '06 is a natural. I was banging the silhouette with...

    Duke missed another important point - oxidation. I cast with an open pot and ladle and thus are always adding oxygen to the mix. Tin oxidizes first and thus needs to be mixed back in to the alloy. Wax accomplishes this, thus the reason to use it...
