    Price gouging? I think it has more to do with supply and demand.

    I’ve only sold one so far. It was an AK I got for cheap, shot one magazine through it and immediately didn’t like it. Had it for less than a month.... does that still count? Good advice to hang to some of those first guns for sure. BNE

    BNE replied to a thread Bronze boolits in Swaging
    The OP mentioned an alloy. That’s a lot different than just bronze. I’m intrigued, what % would get you to a hard, self lubricating Bullet and still be cast able at home? BNE

    YES, add some Tin. Your range scrap probably has NO TIN. I have tested a lot of Range scrap and it is typically 1% Antimony, 99% Lead. A little (1/2% to 2%) will make all the difference. Lots of threads about where to find Tin on this forum....

    For what it is worth, I had to replace the firing pin, the ejector and the seat to get my daughters MKIV to make it reliably functional. My 50 year old MK2 performs much better. BNE

    BNE replied to a thread Keeping Tin In Range Lead in Cast Boolits
    JimB pretty much covered it. Tin oxidizing at the surface of the pot is not a myth, but that layer is incredibly thin (think microns) that scraping it off and throwing it away will not measurably change your mix ratio. I have tested this multiple...

    So I tried different seaters and had no luck. The body of the cartridge collapses before it gets close to closing the brass. Going to keep trying.

    I don’t have a point forming die. I’m going to try pushing it into the seating die of a 9mm round nose seater die.

    Specifically for 223 / 556? I got to shoot one of those ARs with a 12 oz can upper. Shot a full 12 oz can 100 yards and was all kinds of fun. I plan to buy the upper, and of course make my own blanks to propel them. My search dug up nothing. Not...

    I have the Glock 43X. Same size gun, but with .75” shorter barrel. I have only shot my powder coated Bullets through it. No leading issues. I size to 0.356”. Not sure if I have the perfect fit or coating makes up the difference. I agree to slug your...
