    So we have a siesta time in the middle of the day. What's the big deal? I generally take a nap then anyway.

    Ignore the butt. You can use Minwax Wood Hardener to stabilize the grain. Stick with the scraper, then go to a burnishing tool. I use an antler tip.

    I*'m going to try to be fishing while it happens, to see if it affects the bite.

    If you have ins, especially good ins, the tests and evaluations never end. It is the reason our health ins is in such rotten shape. Between the ambulance chasers and the Docs covering their butts, the health industry has become a racket. Loyd, my...

    Robert: that's what I thought too! On another note: the text says no CNC or 3D printer could make that part, and I have to call BS to that assertion. They are being made by CNC Tool Grinding machines every day, and in every shape known to...

    You can also boil the bejeebers (grease) out of it, then soak it in the Kroil or whatever.

    The concepts of making your own bullet lube and being " tiddy " don't go well with each other. I've made Ben's Red for almost 8 years now. The same utensils are used now that I used then. I've never attempted to clean them. They are put into...

    If banned for Facebook posts, that is unforgivable and wrong of the management. Members were always told if they have a complaint, take it somewhere else. It is no one's business of what someone posts elsewhere.

    It's easier to get an appropriately sized tote to store all the equipment in. Clean is a relative term. I have 2 totes, one has the tools and the other supplies, and finished lube. The tools don't matter if it gets hot, but the supplies need a...

    Dan: Thanks for the response, and that makes sense. I've used round balls for fire forming brass, but not for actual shooting. I just might try that some. I did some powder coated collar buttons about 200 grain, but they didn't shoot all that...

    Well, there are a couple ways to close the hole in bottom. Remove the spout and replace with a bolt n nut should seal it nicely. OR - perhaps thread the existing spout and screw a plug into it, then replace to pot. I can understand...

    " Just another pill in the pile I already take for old age" Boy, isn't that the truth. I take so many I rattle in the mornings, and again at bed time. And a side effect of most of them makes me drowsy. The rest contribute to a lack of energy...

    How do you lube the round ball when loading in 45-70? Just tumble some LLL on the ball? Load the ball right at the end of brass, about half in just enough to hold ball in brass?

    OK guys Exactly what caliber are we talking about? Is this a 6MM rifle or a 9MM pistol cartridge? or a .380 or 9x18. Kind of makes a big difference. H110 is not a suitable powder for any of those. It is hard to believe that there isn't...

    Well, what happens if the SHTF never happens? There is going to be a lot of folks with soggy salt or storage space full of "just in case". Silver may tarnish, which is no real problem, but gold will always be the same bright metal regardless of...
