    I just double coated a batch of bullets and made these at the same time. Took about an hour - I also had a beer and a cigar and a good time.

    Some people spend that time for a beer and a cigar only.
    Sounds like a good time spent, I really miss my cigars, I smoked cigs too, but I took up vaping six years ago and it's worked, I can vape guilty free and even enjoy it! But no more cigars or smoking after going through a round with throat cancer. Fortunately it was on a vocal cord that caused a raspy voice and prompted me to see my doc who caught early, doc said if it had been elsewhere in my throat it was likely it wouldn't have been noticed until much bigger, higher risk of killing it. They were able to kill it with radiation, wasn't fun, burned the living hell out of the inside and outside of my throat but far better then the alternative. Four years behind me on that, one more to go then they tell me I'll be fully clear of risk of it returning, IF I don't smoke again!

    Don't mean to be a downer, just makes me cringe when I see people smoke, that was me and I said it would never happen to me... I rather you resent me then not say anything in hopes that I might help just one person. Now I'm out of here before it gets any more uncomfortable, no need to reply, back to coating boolits.
    Be careful what you wish for!

    Smoking is stupid but it can be fun... cigar is a bit different, I only smoke in summer these days. The same with beer. Cold,sober winters which I like a lot as well.

    I've had long breaks on both for a long time, last time three years no cigar and I got a heart attack. So I thought well, I better smoke an occasional cigar while I'm still alive.

    No downer intended.

    EDIT: I really like brass molds these days, very easy to keep them in the good temp range with my not-very-hot , tin-rich alloy.

    I'd go insane if i didn't get a shot away at least a few times a month.

    Not that anyone would notice me going insane, most think i'm already there.

    LoL, your not alone in that club my friend. I've always had one foot in the "you've never grown up" club to now the other foot in the "your loosing it" club, and that's right from the wife's mouth. I remind her how I told her the day we married her life would never get boring with me around. Be careful what you wish for dear!

    (ETA: Note my avatar and sig line?)

    hahaha i like that one.

    When i tell my wife she is weird, she make sure to inform me that i knew what i was in for.... Sadly this is true, and i met her parents, so it's my own fault. Yet i make sure to add my own weirdness to the mix, she rolls her eyes and walks off.

    I like the avatar, so very true.
