    I've not found any significant differences in dry powdered metal polishes; they all work. Bottled polishes are simply a mixture of liquid cleaner (to cut surface crud) and a powdered metal polish. Liquid or gas fumes, I don't understand all I...

    Yeah, technically, if a trivial point in grammar matters to you. But we can't steal anything from an empty building either.

    Identify the crooks? If your robbery occurred in a state tightly controlled by "compassionate, progressive" Democrats the theft will likely be declared to be a political right to steal by healthy po' folk who have nothing and can't bring themselves...

    Caution: Range pick-ups can be sneaky risky. IF the case flaw is the deadly big one, i.e. a coming head separation, tumbling of any kind will remove the shiny stretch ring near the head that is our only warning.

    No one buys a Rolex to tell time. No one buys a Ferrari to get around the city. Etc. Instead, such things are purchased to tell the world just ONE THING: "I have money to burn." I believe it only exposes emotional juveniles seeking envious...

    Ammo is made in the dies. All any press can do is push cases into a die and pull them back out and even the smallest, cheepist little Lee press can do that. "Quality" that means nothing in performance is just an ego feeding waste, not quality...

    We get about six of those calls everyday, sometimes more. I've read that current robot-phone call systems make it possible for creeps to make hundreds of thousands of contacts every day for almost no cost to them.

    Everyone cleans cases, not even the dumbest of us thinks mud is a case lube. Cases that are too dirty to handle can hardly be reloaded and it's silly to suggest anyone might do otherwise. We shooters have cleaned and reloaded brass cases...

    Well yes, that's a surprise question but I do "wash" my autos. However, I don't even try to get them surgically clean, especially under the hood, frame, fuel tank, springs, trunk, etc. Do you? This thread is about reloading, not dirty cars. A...

    The bottom line question about electric cars is rarely discussed: how might they affect the CO2 level? The reason it isn't mentioned by the dominant liberal/fake news propaganda crowd is that electrics are not only unlikely to make much difference...

    I always wanted to build a 250-3000 Savage, or 35 Rem(16" barrel) with one. Unfortunately, others wanted it more than me. I think that 35 would be a sweet pig gun. Sent from my SM-A515U using Tapatalk

    My previous home had two small ponds about 200 yards apart and the turtles swapped pools quite a bit. I didn't have time to keep it mowed as well as I wished so the grass sometimes got a foot high. Over the 25 years we lived on that ten acres of...

    Yup. Good electronics techs don't/won't work for free and a properly equipped repair/calibration shop itself isn't cheep. If a consumer market device craps out just toss it and buy new, you'll at least get a new warranty.

    If it shoots and looks good keep it the way it is and just have the barrel set back a turn or two to fix the chamber.

    A quick look at an inflation calculator shows that today's SideWinder is, in real terms, virtually the same cost as it was in the mid 90s. No one asked for my opinion about wet tumbling but that seems quite costly (and time consuming) to...

    1hole replied to a thread Nickle cases in Our Town
    Nickle has a much higher friction coefficent than brass so it places more demands on the case lube - and press - than brass. Seems thin coats of nickle plated over the brass are more likely to wear off with use but thicker coats tend to break up...
