    The lady at the desk or on the phone doesn't have a lot of room to negociate their company policy. All the mortgage companies do is rent money, just like other companies rent cars or apartments. Shop around for who will rent you some money at...

    That's cool. When I feel like doing a bunch of casting, I'll clear the deck, and do enough in each cal. to last me at least a year or two. Sometimes I get a little carried away and cast, size, & lube enough of one cal. for a few years. I store...

    I have a Bond in .410/.45Colt. In the last 1/2" or so of the barrels is rifling. That might be how they make it legal as a handgun instead of a (too short of a barreled) shotgun. That way, chambering .410 shotgun shells, is just a coincidence...

    I've had that happen, and not with hot reloads too. I was able to hit the bolt handle with my hand a few times to rotate it. Worst case scenario, it might take a rubber mallet using several little taps rather than one big one.

    Not sure if it counts or not- I do a few of the reverse engineered dishes from some of the famous Asian restaraunts. They're about as authentic Chinese as George Washington.

    If it's about 3" dia. and has been split open-- there's a good chance it is old telephone cable that had a gaz-illion of those little Copper wires inside and was buried. It's about as pure as you'll find. But there is usually a lot of...

    Winger Ed. replied to a thread Desiccant bags in Our Town
    The latch on ammo cans are designed to burst open and vent the can in a fire, without shattering or fragmenting. A pressure cooker is made to contain fairly high pressure and doesn't have the ability to vent more than at a small rate. It can...

    Back in the old days, when the kids were little, I had a endless supply of broken crayons. I made my own lube for 1,000-ish speed handgun loads with them. It won't work just straight, I had to mix in some motor oil and high temp disc brake...

    As far as .30 molds go: Any of the tried & true designs that have been around for almost 100 years will do a good job for ya. That may have something to do with why there are popular and still in production I've got a 169 or 170 RN RCBS I...

    Out there in the jungle where you are, I'd be putting long term stored powder (in its original container) inside a airtight plastic tub or ammo can and call it good.

    All things considered, that's really pretty good. Especially for those of us that no longer have what I call 'Those young kid eyes'. I'd keep doing the last tinkery sort of things. My results have shown a tiny little improvement with those...

    Capt. Marchinko USN, the SEAL Team Six guy, and author would get frustrated at various things, and wish doom on them. One of his quotes was "Doom! on spell checkers".

    Yeah. There's some critical measurements going on with them. If you need a bolt for a Remington (probably others too), it can not be had anywhere, at any price. You have to send the rifle back to the factory so they can fit it.

    I've often been frustrated with dictionarys. I have a problem looking up a word I can't spell. Sometimes I've thought I'd have to look on every single page, and still not be able to find it.
