    I have wanted a roller off and on for a very long time. I like the history, I like the looks but I just don't like how they fit me. Some of the original blackpower rollers are in the same strength category as Trapdoor Springfield's. Later and the...

    For me I use the smell test rule for the information I am being given. First time I tried to ship primed brass I was the same BS answers. When I asked how the major mail order supply houses could ship primed brass with no hazmat I would get the...

    If ya ever have to move it in a HURRY, you'll quickly change your mind about how much is too much. No matter whether it is in buckets, crates, boxes, or sacks, they're too darn heavy. One trip I had so much on the very back of the truck that I...

    mold maker replied to a thread Next Step in Cast Boolits
    I spent over 30 years chasing the best alloy and found they all sorta worked. Back then there was no internet or forum and I didn't know another caster. Little was written in my world about bullet fit, and lube was either something you bought or a...

    I don't think so. I have made my own molds for several years and to center the cherry is a very hard setup. It only takes a few thousands off to get a sticky. I have lucked out but will say it is not easy. Lathe cut blocks can be even harder to...

    I'd also recommend purchasing a casting thermometer since uniform temperatures correlate with more uniform CB diameters.

    It also depends on how well those CB's fit your gun, how fast you want to push them, and how hard your alloy is. Liquid Alox works for me when velocity is <1,100fps with plain base CB's in my Ruger SBH, for ex., but your results may be different. ...

    Bolt thrust and firing pin size would be my areas of concern. It would be safe on a TC Encore but for others it becomes much more questionable. The sub gauge adapters work very well. The cartridge adapters not so much. ...

    . Except for the friend thing, IDK why you're hesitating - IMO, that gun's easily worth $500, with the quality of workmansip/adornment like that one has. Maybe the GS owner (not some clerk) will accept a cash-on-the-table (not a spoken offer)...

    The FP should still be able to ignite the primers, provided that the hammer impact isn't being lessened. In a rebounding hammer action, there are two things that can retard hammer fall, resulting in light strikes. 1) The top (driving)...

    Sometimes calibers when I wake up and sometimes different engines. I understand about not getting credit for the right answer. I would do most of the math in my head and just scratch down a number or two to keep things coherent. No credit for...

    When asking for or reading of others load data, don't use the info unless you can verify it in the manuals. Many think their memory is good enough to be accepted as fact, but it just isn't so. The misplacing of a decimal point or reversing of...

    In 1960 I worked in a Chevy parts department. Does anyone else recognize the PN 1931988? Funny how some numbers are so ingrained in your memory, while others escape you, no matter how important. I have my family's (4) SS numbers and birthdates...

    The secret to success with any cooler (cheap or expensive) is to have everything pre-cooled before putting it in the cooler. It's not a refrigerator and depends on the ice to hold everything at the temp you like. I have always used the extra thick...
