    Check the Muzzle Loading section. There is a number of threads regarding homemade BP that will probably help answer your questions. RRR

    Just a follow-up on this for those that are interested. Life isn't 100% black and white. If you believe it's a good idea to sell to people that appear to be scripted, unstable or unsafe I really don't know what to tell you other than you will...

    I tend to "remember" those who price gouge on things like primers, powder, ammo, etc. and I take them off my list of suppliers. ON the other hand it is not unheard of for distributors to raise prices during such times and small increase of 10% or...

    Just some more info for you guys to chew on: Here are some boolit measurements that might be useful: I am sizing to .356" so that the loaded rounds drop into the chamber checker easily and should chamber in a number of different guns. OAL of...

    It appears they have adopted new forum software. The forums are listed on the right side of the page. I dabbled over there for a moment by chosing “single shots” which opened a new page with the current threads on the left side of the page. The...

    Hi casters, I am a long time caster and have had a Saeco 372 9mm round nose, bevel base, with one lube groove mold for many years. I was wondering if there was ever a group buy on a copy of this boolit in say an 8 or 10 cavity aluminum mold. The...

    Lyman #45 was my first and like you the Speer #80 was my second purchased in late 71 or early 72. I've kept every manual I have ever owned with the exception the the two P.O. Ackley books. In the past Lee has had some beyond warm loads.

    I have been loading 3.9 Grains of Tightgroup under a coated Saeco 372 125gr. round nose cast boolet. It seems to shoot fine but I really don't have much supporting data that I can find in load books. My browser does not support the powder company...

    Nope sounding scripted and coming back an hour later are two red flags. Just a guess but if she had completed the purchase on the first visit chances are good there would have been zero issues. We have cameras on the parking lot and a monitor to...

    Purchasing as a gift is 100% legal providing you are using your own money and the gift recipient is not a prohibited person. Again not taking Cabela's side but any doubt the sales person has on a firearm sale is enough to LEGALLY stop the sale. ...

    So since Speer made the #8 we should blindly follow it?????????? So you're a fool if you follow it and a fool if you don't? Interesting perspective.
