    I checked the database and it appears you discontinued your Team Boolit Sponsorship ~2 years ago. If you donated to the server drive fund it does not increase your PM limit.

    Cast Boolits members, Curtis78 appears to be a scammer. His MO is to notify members who have missed out on a sale in S&S offering a similar item for a deal that is almost too good to be true. He typically requests payment through PayPal using...

    They do not list the Waage K5747. It is a special order. They are outstanding. Call for current price and availability. A couple of years ago they were just over $200. http://www.waage.com/

    oley55 replied to a thread Dillon Update in Reloading Equipment
    short of making phone calls to Dillon, has there been any change to the unofficial lead times for Dillon carbide die sets? I ordered a set of 9MM on Jan 29, 2021 and status is still 'Pending'. A bit disconcerting that Dillon isn't clearly stating...

    I have the same shelving unit and it is surely stout, but I ended up with enough weight on the shelves that I was detecting a bit of outward bowing of the side braces. Fearing they could spring out too far and have a catastrophic failure, I picked...

    It does suck our age/health interfering with our tinkering efforts. I hope things are getting better for you. I'd say yes a definate spin off. Here is a couple paragraphs cut from the first Corbin link: The pity is I can "just"...

    I've been an RCBS fan from the beginning 40+ years ago. Following the RCBS line, Redding has a great reputation as well. You didn't mention if you were open to carbide or steel. If it's carbide, I'd chase down a set of Dillon dies (not easily done...

    Murphy replied to a thread casting season is upon us in Our Town
    I honestly don't think I've ever cast based on what time of the year it was. Either I need to cast some, or I don't. I guess it varies for a lot of us and what region of the country we live in. I'm not that far geographically located from Lightman...

    as lightman said the amount of other (copper or whatever) is so diluted as to be closer to non-existent. Assuming 5% copper in your tin solder is mixed at a rate of 2% with the 98% of your lead alloy, the percent of copper would be something like...
