    alamogunr replied to a thread Dixie Gun Works in Muzzleloading.
    I grew up in a small town about 12 miles from Union City. I remember going into his little store front out of curiosity in the late 1950's as a teenager. Mostly genuine old guns and parts. His family(at least same last name) is quite prominent...

    I've run into a bit of a snag in my processing. I reached out by PM to an individual that has analyzed lead samples for me in the distant past. He has not responded so I don't know if he is still doing analysis or is not longer active on this...

    Sorry if I offended you with a "strong" word. Other than that it sounds as if you don't disagree with my plan. If not "then, OH WELL".

    I don't really disagree with what both of you said but I am not planning to sell the stuff that I can readily identify such as SOWW, flashing, type metal, etc. The rest is all over the place. I still plan to follow Dusty's advice. Yes, it is added...

    I'm not sure that parts of this post won't draw the ire of moderators but here goes: I have a relatively large stash of lead that I would like to start combining to arrive at some consistency. This would also allow me to be up front about what I...

    Heaven help us! The problems would probably quadruple rather than double.

    Thanks! It didn't show up when I just Googled RCBS. At least I don't think it did.

    We are on our 2nd Instant Pot. Had two problems with the first. Second problem couldn't be fixed so they replaced it. You've already done more with yours than I have. Wife has a tender stomach so I have to keep everything very bland.

    I just found this thread and appreciate the info from those more experienced in the art of coffee. The better half puts up with Keurig because of the convenience. I prefer drip from the Cuisinart(our 2nd). I just ordered a hand crank grinder as...

    Thanks for the offer but I think I will just be satisfied with the H&G 50.

    I had a friend(deceased) who back in the 70's after the oil embargo by the Arabs, would drive 20 miles round trip to save .05/gal on gas. I couldn't convince him that he would be much better off to just pay the price. During that same period, we...

    I assume you mean a H&G 50 for .38/.357 cartridges. I already have a 4 cavity H&G 50 as well as a 6 cavity H&G. The six cavity will go up for sale as soon as I learn how to post suitable pictures. As I've aged(80 next month) the six cavity is...

    Looking into SAECO 348 double ended wad cutter. Seems to be a special order item from SAECO, so no telling how long to get one. Does anyone know of a similar design from one of the other mold makers? I like SAECO molds but not sure I want this...

    I bought an EGO last summer. Not sure which battery it came with. The manual shows 4 levels from 2.5 amp hour to 10 amp hour. I feel sure that mine is one of the lower capacity batteries. Since my yard is fairly small, I can usually go over it...

    My present car, a 2017 Toyota Avalon, doesn't have a digital gas mileage readout. Just an estimate of "Miles to Empty". I don't trust it below about 50 miles. In 5 years we've only put about 41K miles on this car. Not even broken in. ...

    That must be the same sale I took advantage of. I don't remember the price or how much I paid, but it was obviously a mistake on Midway's part because they changed the price soon after I placed my order. I don't remember it being on close out. ...

    16 MPG for my '13 Tundra. Being retired and the Covid shutdown for 2 years has limited miles to approx 45K. My experience with Toyota indicates that it is not yet broken in. Hoping for a couple more MPG. I doubt I'll ever need another truck.
