    I had in my head a regular tea spoon, not a REAL tea spoon used for baking, those are the same world wide, so those results are repeatable.

    We really do need a “thumbs up” option here.

    There are sure some differences in communication sometimes. Some things we have access to here in the U.S. is not available in Australia. RydForLyf, can you tell me how you post photos? I have been trying without success for a while now. I have a camera that has the sbd card in in it. I take the card and put it in a card reader that plugs into the computer. I follow the directions but always get a pop up saying the upload failed. Any ideas? Somehow the other night I managed to send a photo by e mail to Donnie and he posted it for me.
    Boolits !!!!! Does that mean what I think it do? It do!

    I think your issue might be due to the file being too big? if they are too large, the site says na uh! email isn't as fussy with file sizes.

    Yeah, you guys get all the fun stuff, i'd live to play with an AR, but not allowed to have them. We can jump through lots of hoops IF we are a primary producer with a pest problem. So you need a farm, a LARGE farm being over run with pigs or kangaroos then they might, just might allow you to buy one, it must only be used at that property too.

    I am afraid we may be heading the same way as you guys. I have never seen a bigger collection of idiot politicans in my life. I really don't know where they come from!!!!!!! I have no idea how to reduce the size on photos. I'll keep trying.

    I guess it's good for me, i never got to shoot a semi-auto rifle, so i can't miss it. I got into shooting after the semi-auto rifle bans came into play, pretty much 20+ years on, people are still bitter about it.

    I was into pistol shooting when the hand gun bans came in, not banned, but restricted. No more high cap mags, anything over .38 or 9mm was big and scary. I handed in my 8 month old .45 and bought a .38 super ipsc gun, it shot flatter, was more accurate, i'd feel more lethal, yet totally legal. A .45 was slow moving, but made slightly bigger holes, the public is safer now.

    Hopefully they can't take them away from you, i'm all for registration, keep tabs on them, but don't take them away when they are in law abiding hands. You will never have criminals abiding by the laws, so what's the point?

    Rydforlyf...Why didn't you say measuring spoons??????
    Bloody teaspoons are for stirring bloody tea.

    You northern hemisphere types really need to learn the lingo.

    [QUOTE=RydForLyf;4835837]Now I understand!!! When you chaps down under hear us yanks say teaspoon, you think of those oblong things in your kitchen drawer that you actually use to stir your tea. Nothing could be further from the truth.


    You are correct, it is simply a difference with description of an item.
    Here, these spoons you show, are called "Measuring Spoons" not teaspoons. That is where confusion had occurred.
    I my reference to a commercial caster using such measure he actually used (30mls) such a measuring spoon, (looks like a small egg cup with a handle) which was attached to a piece of wooden dowel. Worked quite well.

    I still curse little Johnny, he is and always will be a turd in my book. I'm not into shooting as much as i should be, i do love pistol shooting, but never gotten into rifles. The only long arms i have is a 22lr and a .177/.22 beeman air gun.

    One day i may actually grow up and get a big boy gun or two.

    Slide, I’m posting on an iPad, so it’s most likely different than a laptop or desktop. Sorry.

    We got the lingo. A BCH is thicker than a RCH. Blonde is the thinnest.

    I could have said measuring spoons, but I was just telling you how much, a 1/4 tsp (1.25 ml), not how I was measuring it.

    Tazza, I used to believe in registration but quickly learned it was the first step to confiscation, as we all found out. I could live with a life time licence till one showed they were unfit. Registration has never stopped, cured or prevented a crime, the law abiding will always do the right thing but criminals will not. I wonder how many licence holders realise they are on Police crim track because they are licenced. Maybe some day you will have to have a go at my 458 win mag it will help you appreciate your Beeman haha. Regards Stephen

    That is a good point, and they do use that against us already. I have been told that if a cop runs your license or rego, it shows "possible firearms on board" not sure if that's a good or bad thing, as i hope they don't do a RBT with guns drawn on me!

    I bet that big boy hurts, a mad mate has a 300WM, that hurts enough after a few shots, but holy cow, it hits hard. We did a testing day for 3 gun a few months back, 6" plate at 200m got the snot beat out of it with the 300wm, never thought it had that much energy, but it flung that plate like it was nothing.

    The "Measuring Spoon" set I bought has a 1 1/2 teaspoon measure which is 7 ml and I use it with 5 1/2 lbs of bullets in a 5 qt bucket, repeatable and always good results. I also use dish soap bottles with a snap on lid with a spout to mix and store the Hi-Tek, the bottles are air tight so the mix is good for months.

    The last time I shot my 300 WM I did not enjoy it, I guess that comes with getting older any way I traded it in on a Walther PPQ SF a lot more fun to shoot and I can use Hi-Tek with it.

    We are supposed to measure this stuff. I've been just scooping some out with my fingers and dumping a little acetone in with it. .

    You guys on the metric system instead of the King's measurements have always been a bit snobbish. And I am talking about you Trevor. You and your tea with the little finger lifted when drinking. We prefer coffee with a full grip on the mug
    While I work at it, it is by God's grace that it happens. So it is best I ask him what, how and when before I start..
