    I just came across this thread. Don't know how I missed for the past year but have read almost every word. What a range of interests in rifles. I've been retired for 16 years and just turned 80. I'm looking at a quote for a Daystate PCP rifle...

    As long as the temp of the melt is below 788F(melt point of zinc) you should be good to go. In my experience, it is not easy to get that hot anyway. I cast at 725 because I like a little frost. It would really be better if you did not do...

    I'm glad I started this thread. I have always paid/tipped with credit card. My card pays points on amount charged. I try to tip at least 20%. I never thought about the waiter/waitress not getting all of it. I think I will start leaving my tip...

    So they(the restaurant/server) doesn't get the tip until whoever goes into the system and adds in the tip amount. It would seem that the interval could be the same day or two mentioned in the gas station example. Woe to both if the update gets...

    I know there is another thread similar to this but I can't find it and my question is somewhat different. I always use a credit card when paying for a meal at a restaurant and include the tip. If I check the charge on the credit card site, it...

    alamogunr started a thread New Medicare Card in Our Town
    Recently I've been getting phone calls(YES, THOSE) notifying me that they are sending me a new Medicare Card. Of course this immediately raises red flags. The caller has a foreign accent and asks me if I am having a nice day. I usually respond...

    I pick up a tin of Altoids while waiting in line at WM. I can always think of another way to use the empties. I've got a couple that hold all the wrenches that came with MP molds. Now I need one for percussion caps, when I find some.

    The last two "Quick Reply's" that I have posted have prompted a message that I may lose my post. Turns out I don't but never had this happen before.

    Hope I don't get dinged for responding to my own post. Using the small flat rate boxes as interior packing doesn't work with my lead muffins. Not at all efficient. Future shipments after the present batches are shipped may bel the little Lyman...

    Thanks! I never thought of that. I've been about ready to forget the whole thing and let the sons just dump the lead. Your suggestion has at least changed my mind for now. The muffins have been my preferred way to cast and store ingots for a...

    I've only got two Arsenal molds but both work well. I wondered about the black stuff on the sprue plate but since it didn't cause a problem, I ignored it. it seems to be wearing off though. Anyone know why it is used?

    Since I'm using Medium Flat Rate Boxes, the postage is always $16.10. I'm charging $1 per pound plus shipping but the shipping is an even $15. I don't like keeping up with odd amounts. Also, I'm trying to figure out how to pack 50 pounds in the...

    I have 2 of the MP four cavity clones of the H&G 68. I'm also 80 years old. It slows me down a little but well worth the output from the MP brass molds.

    I'm a little late to this thread but I do understand the OP's reservations about delivery of an MP mold. I have to say that if anyone can get a mold to its' destination, it is Miha. I have two MP H&G68 clone molds in 4 cavity and one of his first...
