    My sister and b.i.l. reside in Port Townsend, Wa -- about 21 miles north of you. I'm copying/send your post to them, as I'm certain they will have interest. They live a few miles off paved road, with a 550 foot driveway thereafter to their house. ...

    My most used presses are the Dillon 550B on which I load most handgun (plus 30 carbine) calibres; and, a couple of Redding Big Boss presses I run in tandem for rifle calibres. I have, also, four Lyman All-Americans set up for specific (rifle)...

    A lot for me depends upon the powder. E.g., Bullseye is rarely and barely a problem, but a powder like Trail Boss is a "static nightmare". My two attempts at a solution, both helpful but NOT 100% is to use the ubiquitous dryer inserts, and, the...

    I bought two spam cans of .30-'06 Greek ammo from the CMP. Not only did it all function and shoot well in my Garand, but I found it to be a pleasure to load. I reserve my stash of HXP, however, for our hi-power competition league, using Sierra...

    "My problem" is I go to a (gun) show and every so often (too often?) a firearm will ACTUALLY shout out, "buy me!" as I walk past it. So, I too, have a similar ailment as yours, 'cept yours is much more focused -- specializing in High Standard. In...

    doghawg -- You indeed started quite the (enjoyable, educational, fun) thread! And, it is germane as bullets are cast of wax, too! Thank you! What I'm adding is I have read MANY warnings re shooting wax bullets indoors. Claims are the fumes from...

    I purchased these, with initial thoughts I spent way too much money for them -- e.g., they were grossly overpriced. Then, a short while afterwards, I took on the job of taking apart several hundred (military) .30-'06 cases to remove primers,...

    I, too, am a sawdust user, gleaning mine from under one of my table-saws. I simply dropped a piece of surplus plastic window material atop stand opening, and the 'dust accumulates at a rate pretty close to my fluxing need use. The reason I'm...

    KCSO-- thank you for this suggestion. I laud WD40's ability to dry the distributor cap on vehicles still having these -- with not much "good" about the product for me to add. However -- I had fired exactly fifty wax bullets through my New Vaquero...

    Tom W. : You are indeed correct with your astute observation :) -- and, from it, I coged a bit re whether to add a tidbit of a comment. While lead bullets can and do "lead" -- believe it or not, wax bullets likewise do leave a layer of wax in the...

    The Lyman MiniMag furnace is 400 watts; a couple of Lyman and Saeco pots I have draw 1,000 watts -- so, theoretically, 1,500 watts should be sufficient. However, there are lots of other factors, not to exclude the size of the pot you're going to...
