    I use the paste as a resizing lube. Just get it warm in the microwave and only touch it with your fingers ( you'll soon figure out how much to use). I also use it for case forming. Today, I formed some 5.7 mm Johnson Spitfire from .30 carbine...

    Hi Taz, We got together one time and successfully traded that kind of stuff between the bunch of us. So, if you have other friends close by, you might try that. Besides, it's a good excuse to get together.

    I slapped together 300+ 9mm cast rounds and then got out my Johnson. I read some postings on how this guy totally destroys the .30 carbine cases and manages to get one formed into a useable Johnson every 10. I annealed a few and tried running them...

    Since I already have a .444 Marlin and a .454 Casull, a .357 doesn't sound very appetizing. I'd have to go with the Colt if that's the only choice.

    Some very good points. I made a chamber-checker by putting a cut off 20 gauge hull inside of a 12 gauge shell and stuck it in the chamber. When the rim of the 20 gauge hits the end of the chamber, it will telescope inwards and that's the maximum...

    Typical. Lawyers and bean counters found profit and earned their pay at your expense. Keep after them and document who and when you spoke. No guarantee but only the squealing wheel will get greased. I've had a similer problem with WalMart...

    I have used it in everything from .32 up to 11 gauge shotgun. It seems to like the heavier projectiles. The heavier they were, the more velocity per grain wt. I didn't get a chance to test out the velocity in .32 and .36 (didn't bring the chrono...

    Applying that kind of heat directly to lead is a guaranteed way to send lead oxides and vaporized lead into the air we breathe. While it's fast and it works, it's not recomended. As casters we want too live long ehough to shoot the lead we melt.
