    GhostHawk replied to a thread Stump Remover Chemicals in Our Town
    I've seen video of a guy who used a bag of charcoal in winter. Drilled a central hole in stump then drilled a couple of smaller air holes into that from the sides to allow air to get in. Fill the cavity with charcoal and light it up. After a...

    Good days and bad ones. The good news is she continues to lose weight on her diet. Her doctor had her cut her Metformin dose in half after seeing her and seeing her glucose numbers. This is all good long term news. Just going to take some time to...

    Bit pricey for my taste. I really can't see buying one in 5.56. 7.62x39 I already have a SKS plus a handi rifle. Also have .300BO handi rifle. The 8mm Kurtz is interesting but not interesting enough to get around the price tag. While I agree that it...

    Gabapentin worked but she was seeing and hearing all kinds of things that were not there. Lyrica is her main one along with some codine 4's for pain.

    I had a black lab that I was teaching to retrieve when harvest season came. We did most of the training after 10 at night when I got home. A year later I could handle and throw a quarter, or a single car key, with her eyes covered into an uncut...

    I agree with Don Verna. My 12 ga buckshot loads are more tactical loads. Lower speed, lower recoil, 9 pellets of #1 buck (30 caliber) with cornmeal filler and an overshot card. Inside the house my 12 ga 879 wingmaster is loaded with 5 rounds of...

    I agree with garandrus, you want bullet size 1 to 3 thousands bigger than the biggest dimension. So in your case you would be looking at .442 to 443. That is too much too big for a standard .44mag cast boolit. If you had a .442 size die you...

    I also use a damp towel from time to time on the 2 cavity molds. The 6 cav's don't seem to have that problem. Most sessions I will only touch it to the towel 2 or 3 times in a session to cool it down a bit. I do tend to not run my pot hot as...

    We are looking at the Keto diet and adjusting a bit. Takes a bit of time to do trial and error. We like to have a day in between for things to return to normal. Wife went shopping alone today, bought a bag of chocolate chips as she was craving...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Aging Meat in Our Town
    Dad always aged his beef for at least 13 days, longer if he could find a butcher that would do it. Deer always got skinned before they froze, deboned, hauled home from the farm in deboned quarters in large black plastic garbage bags. Final...

    I use a q-tip and hand sanitizer. Lots of that for sale at the dollar store. Be a buck and a quarter now instead of a buck. Still pretty cost effective.

    FYI Cindy continues to follow the diet. And continues to lose weight. We are hoping that in about 6 months she can get off metformin. The diabetic neuropathy is better, but can still be triggered by overworking. Too many trips in one day down to...

    I restarted loading some 7 years ago with a Lee Hand press, and I still do over 80% with it. Full sized rifle brass resizing gets moved to a benchtop model with more leverage. But except for sizing that is all it is used for. I guess it depends...

    I own a H&R Handi rile in .444marlin. In 5 years I have yet to fire a single full power or factory loaded round in it. I know better. Mostly what I shoot is moderate .44mag loads loaded in .444marlin brass. 6 or 6.5 grains of Red Dot below a 220...

    IMO either Liquid lube or 45/45/10 should work well. Does not take much, just enough to start seeing a brassy color change. Set on paper in front of a fan to dry and you can cast, lube and load within an hour or 2. You could try dipping heads...
