    As stated, you will likely not do better than an alloy of 50/50+2% for our mid Atlantic deer. PC is not even needed, supersonic is not needed, if you can scratch it with a thumbnail IT IS ALREADY a good hunting alloy. Soft lube highly recommended....

    WHY would you want to change a defensive carry gun? That just presents the prosecution yet another "Easter Egg" they will use against you. It's STUPID to libel yourself to this. I guarantee that if you ever do have to draw and fire in a REAL...

    Before posting a thread titled as this one is, "improved 1911" one should sit back and ponder that exact terminology. Improved? 1911 improved? With an 86gr boolit the 1911 is improved? Very funny. People have been trying for over 100yrs to...

    I have a 2007 Cannondale "Bad Boy" that I built from the frame up custom. It was great when I lived in Wake Forest but since I moved to another town it's too hilly here to ride it so it sits in the basement collecting dust. Sucks. I probably have...

    Cinnamon and basil on pork are really good. Sauteed pork chops with a bit of both are great. On ribs, you don't really taste the cinnamon, or the curry powder, you taste the basil and the Sweet Baby Rays and of course the hickory smoke flavor.

    If you happen to start casting/loading 45acp or 38 spl, most any lube will work...45 acp and 38 spl are very forgiving calibers, then using the existing unknown lube will likely be successful.

    I've been meaning to experiment with this, using some Alum GC samples I got years ago (that didn't work on my boolit bases). But card wads sure look like the way to go, judging my your excellent results.
