    Nope they are are not extinct. I started seeing tracks about 6 years ago. They stay until the food source gets wise and move on. I think they have chased a few deer around because when I see big cat tracks I quit seeing fresh deer tracks immediately.

    Dip lubing is an art form.. Use a needle noose pliers. Heat your boolits to about 150 Deg F so not too much lube sticks to them. I still dip lube for some odd calibers that I don't have an H&I die. Also, only dip part of the boolit in the lube...

    randyrat replied to a thread Zinc ammo in Cast Boolits
    Heat! 750 F deg or more and then you need to keep your mold hot also. That kind of heat would be kinda hard on your mold eventually. Keep your Zinc away from your other casting equipment, separate your dross and label your zinc alloys...

    hazmat fees are a way to double our cost/their profit margin with out having to provide any service. I think the retail industry is behind it, personally, because I do not remember much of a charge until ordering from a wholesaler got to be popular.

    randyrat replied to a thread Identifying Beeswax in Boolit Lube !
    Beeswax engulfs other waxes and oils so it is tough to tell if it is pure. Mix it 50/50 with ,for sure, beeswax and use it as though it is real. Just make sure it has no chemical odors if you use it for cosmetics. Melt a little sliver of it and...

    Place your boolits in the freezer for an hour before you load. Just be careful of high humidity days. Are you sure you want to mess with a hard lube. Hard lubes have their problems.

    I'm pretty happy with my B&L 6-24. I also have a really clean Lyman 6X perma-center that is going to look awfully good on my very early OM 70 22 Hornet.

    I found that also with humidity you'll have more smoke and , of course, some powders will smoke more..I think the first round fliers will stop once that lube has been used in that gun...In other words, if you take that gun and shoot tomorrow (cold)...
