    I was referring to fake powder. If a trace is there, it will corrode.

    I love going to my post office. Not because it's convenient, not because I can buy stamps and money orders there. I love mine, because the post mistress has bodacious breastial development that is always a treat to see, especially in the summer time.

    When you do that, you push the fouling down to the top of the projectile, leaving a nice place to make a corrosion ring in your barrel.

    Being in Georgia, I would assume it is rather humid. I would pull and clean.

    Remington put a lot of 10 twist barrels on the 260's. A 10 twist is too slow for 140's and 9 is marginal. I believe the VLS was a 9 twist but should have been 8 twist.

    Pyrodex is far more corrosive than real blackpowder.

    What powder? Real black I would not clean, however, Pyrodex would get cleaned ASAP.

    I use Coleman fuel in my lighters. Never noticed any bad taste. I'd sent my old Zippo in a couple weeks ago, with a worn out hinge. It was returned, new hinge, and brand new interior!

    I got a Hi Point .45 pistol specifically for this purpose. After having lost dozens of guns over board, I wanted a cheap one to lose next time.

    I have one and have never set off a round. I've used it with a mallet and with my arbor press. I don't think you can set one off.

    Back when I was shooting Bullseye with a 45ACP I did test different crimps on my cast loads for accuracy. .468" on the 45 worked best for me. If I remember correctly that is about .004 total crimp. I have never tested any of my 9mm.

    Assuming you don't know the nomenclature - the case adapter is a ring that screws into the 310 handles and sizes the brass. This is how the 310 tool became a universal tool from the original caliber dedicated tools
