    I'd be curious ("Curious George: ;)) what method/tooling/grease you are using to make your ribbons? I experienced exactly the opposite of your challenge, as I squeeze out a ribbon just a bit shorter than the width of a piece of Cut-Rite Wax Paper...

    Born American: Pretty much all the replies to your query are spot on! However, I'd ;) like to throw another curve your way. To wit, in my experience, the alloy mix I am using to cast the bullet has a definite effect on the cast bullet's size. ...

    cwtebay -- you asked, "but I'm not sure why you are wanting to polish a hunting gun?", and the only answer I might offer is somewhere along the way in my 73 years (thus far -- I do want to go to heaven albeit I'm in no great hurry to get there!) I...

    Scurrying to do a bit of cleaning/organizing (???) before hunting season, I pulled my Smith & Wesson Model 64-3 out of the safe last night. This morning, it looks as "not-so-new?" as it did last eve. NO major scratches, but there are a zillion...

    Of all the tools in my shop, bion my 14" Rockwell Delta drill press gets used almost on a daily basis -- both my oft-most tool -- as well as the one I got "hurt" from most often! This before -- GREAT decision on your behalf to get clamps :) -- I...

    First, I agree with Outpost75's comments 100%! The can of Ballistol indicates a 10% Ballistol/90% water mix is good for removing corrosive ammo residue. My experience is to heat up a teapot of plain-Jane water, and fill a cup with a squirt of Dawn...

    One of my thoughts revolves about my general slowness to react. On more than one occasion -- e.g., while deer hunting -- a non-deer critter came into my view, and by the time I got firearm (handgun) up and ready, it was gone... Some raise that oft'...

    georgerkahn replied to a thread H&r 999 in Rimfire Area
    Some years back a colleague inherited his dad's firearms, and presented me three of them. One, an Astra .25acp "widow-maker", I never fired. BUT, the other two, 9-shot revolvers -- are the H&R 939 (1969 made) and 949 (made in 1978). Complete with...

    Picking up some sharpened mower blades, I noted a 14" circular saw blade rested adjacent to the trash drum at the shop. I instantly (almost ;)) got the idea of possibly using it, at camp, as kind of a hanging gong/target for my air rifles/pistols?...
