    The best CAD program I have found..................is pencil and paper and a straight edge! Very low cost, easy to modify, and very portable. I have designed and built a lot of stuff over the years that way (scientific instruments, furniture,...

    bangerjim replied to a thread Frozen VHF Tape in Our Town
    I didn't know people still had VHS tapes. I gave perhaps 400+ of them to goodwill over 5 years ago. I don't even have a player anymore. Totally dead inferior technology. Everything is BluRay now....I have hundreds of them. Players are dirt cheap...

    I shoot them out of my 22 cal air rifle. Live primers will actually go bang against a hard wall/surface! But the shrapnel is unpredictable. Live ones do work for chasing off unwanted animals, as long as they are in front of a brick wall. But...

    Never.....according to most on here. I used to smoke coat my l molds ONCE when new - using a beeswax candle. Now I do not at all. (If you feel the need for a high, light up and smoke a mold a day,dude!) HA.....ha!

    You seem to be hung up on this thing about having a "dirty mold". Have you closely inspected the molds under 20-30X magnification? Do you see any dirt? It will be definitely visible. If there, use a pointed hardwood dowel/stick to scrape it off. ...

    "CRACK/FAIL" is the key phrase here! Most of the Ni rounds I have reloaded failed after only a very few cycles, where brass ones will go for many many more!. Ni is great if you are storing your rounds in leather strap holders like police do. They...

    Why would you expect PC to remove leading? It is a plastic polymer compound that is slicker than snakesnot, slides thru sizing dies like a breeze with no lube ever required required, does not scrape of anything from sizing dies, flies out of the...

    PC prevents leading..................it does not remove it! Even the so-called " abrasive mate black " will not do anything to your barrels. Clean the lead out the old-fashioned ways and start fresh with PC'd rounds. You will never have leading...

    You do NOT need hardball for a 9mm or a 45. I use 9-12 hardness and then PC everything. Today "fit is king" not hardness as in the olden golden daze. PC allows you to shoot softer lead with ZERO leading worries. And no greasy messes. Use the...

    As said, reused lino (that is LINES_O_TYPE, not individual letters) will deplete in Sn. Old printers used to refresh their lino melts, but rarely controlled the % exactly. The only time you can know exactly what the alloy actually is made of is if...

    Why not just cast them with hot melt glue? I do it all the time. 3D printing would take forever! ( I have a printer and it is slower than molasses in January doing anything!) HMG cast boolits rain out of your STANDARD molds just like lead. ...

    Your glue mess was not your fault! It was the glue. The tape is amazing stuff! I use it on a regular basis. The glue swells/foams up when exposed to water or moisture in the air, forcing the glued joint apart and oozing out in messy clumps....

    That breed of dog should not exist. And should be eliminated from the face of the earth. Far too many "things" mamed/killed by that type of dog. Killing is in their blood and the owner cannot train that out.
