    If you can crush the case fairly easy with your thumb and fingers, they are probably too soft. As for drying, I take mine and separate the pins out and then dry tumble with lizard litter and New Finish for about an hour. Dries the cases and...

    Have you ever changed the O-Rings on the sizing dies. They may be worn out.

    This is kind of like the .45 Colt/Long Colt issue. It's .45 Colt but everyone insists on calling it Long Colt.

    I mine bullet scrap from our berm at the club I belong to. Therefore, the scrap is the ore that has been mined. So, if the scrap is the ore, then I am smelting. "I'm Smelting, I'm Smelting.

    When cleaning the pot, take an old brass brush on a short piece of cleaning rod mounted in a drill. Run this around the sidewalls of the pot. Harbor freight sells small brushes that will fit in the spout although a paperclip will do the same thing.

    Look for pewter at yard sales and flea markets. Look for things like goblets and plaques that may have been awarded to someone. Don't be afraid to make an offer. I went to a flea market once and made an offer for some pewter the guy had on the...

    I have a Super Blackhawk and a Redhawk both in .44 with 7.5" barrels. I used to have a Super Redhawk with the 9.5" barrel. If you are going to be doing a lot of shooting that long barrel tends to get heavy real fast. Now if you plan on doing long...

    I load pistol cals. only. I use the RCBS check weights to set the scale every time I use it. I don't use the marking on the scale at all anymore.

    Sasquatch-1 replied to a thread C&H Swage dies #409 in Swaging
    I have a couple of that style made by Hawk Precision Bullets. It's a single die that makes a step bullet. I think I paid around $180.00 or less for it. I would say contact him if you are interested. He does not advertise the dies on his website....

    Sasquatch-1 replied to a thread C&H Swage dies #409 in Swaging
    Are these a three die set or single dies? If they are three die sets, in my experience Caliber does not affect price. Look at what Dave Corbin charges for a new set of dies and that should give you an idea of how much they are worth. Take into...

    Welcome to the site. For ID'ing your molds go to the equipment sub-forum. As far as trading or selling on the site, there is a sticky at the beginning of the Swapping and Selling section that explains the rules.

    Here again, try the staple with a couple of pieces of shrink tubing over the staple. You may have to soften the shrink tubing a bit, after applying, by rubbing it around a piece of pipe or the like.

    I am not familiar with the heavier dies that Corbin sells, but I have split an "S" die when trying to reform a harder bullet. At $120.00 for the new replacement, it was a bitter lesson. (That was for just the single die body.) That and the cost...

    It would all depend on how fast you want them to fill in. The closer together the faster the fill. If you are in no big hurry, you can plant them further apart. Let the original patch fill in for a season and then cut more plugs. It will take a...

    I think you will find that with the revolver just about any bullet that is sized properly for the gun will work great.

    You can cut plugs out of the area where the grass is already established and put them in other areas of the yard. Fill the holes with topsoil and they will fill back in. It may take a while to spread but you won't waste money buying seed that may...

    When I was a kid in Jr. High back in the mid 60's I cut grass for a person who had it. It only needed to be cut about half as often as other lawns. About the only weed I can remember getting through it was onion grass. I tried to establish it...

    I have used a cheap SS stock pot, a cut off refrigerant tank and cast iron DO and Frying pans. IMO, the cast iron is by far the best. The others work well, but if you can find a DO at a yard sale cheap, buy it! You won't be sorry.
