    Char-Gar replied to a thread Lloyd Smale? in Our Town
    Interesting, Lloyd detested boys from Dixie with their pickups and Confederate flags and pride in Southern heritage. He was delighted when the move against Southern/Confederate heritage began some years back. He could not understand why Southerners...

    Nueces replied to a thread Lloyd Smale? in Our Town
    One way to resolve the conflicting parts of this story would be to suggest that Lloyd's post on the other board made reference to an unnamed forum that was not this one. If that is the case, his absence here is as yet unexplained. No one here but...

    Mushroom compost works good, also Lowe's sells Black Kow which is composted cow manure, I use this to work into a bed that has been in service for a while. You may be able to find horse farms near you, they often keep a pile of composting manure,...

    Various compositions, all of them 95% or better tin with the balance antimony, copper, silver… and I’m sure there are more.

    Put some red wigglers in there too!! If you don't see any when you turn the beds and work them, there wasn't enough organic content to keep the fed and they will leave. Always good to turn some of your soil and see worms.

    I was once gifted the entire reloading setup of an associates late father. The trove included thousands of various reloads, mostly bottle necks. Among them was an MTM box of .44 Magnum with 45 cartridges, 5 classic head separations and a scribbled...

    218 Bee, which would be like changing gold to silver! Nearly no other modern cases share that head and rim size. I have heard that Nagant cases might work, though.

    A Geissele SSA with JP reduced power springs has been flawless in my RRA LAR-9. FWIW, Geissele does not recommend their triggers for 9mm ARs.

    imashooter2 replied to a thread AR Triggers in Factory Rifles
    I have both 2 stage and single stage triggers. They have different applications to my mind. 2 stage triggers are for rifles you wish to pretend may have a social use. For targets, a good single stage is king. The Larue above is a pretty good...

    imashooter2 replied to a thread AR Triggers in Factory Rifles
    I have seen significant improvement by changing the springs for the JP reduced power set. It doesn’t compare to a real trigger, but it is much lighter. Any creep from that bargain basement lower parts kit still remains.

    The best clean-up for pyrodex is throw it in the garbage. :bigsmyl2: I hate that stuff. Seriously, those 40/65 cases are worth the hard effort to save them. I would try a soak in water and soap detergent overnight.

    Push one of the boolits through the cylinder throats from the front of the cylinder, see if it goes.

    If you plan to make these rounds regularly, I recommend sending a case and seated ball to Lee and have them make you a custom collet crimper. However, to start, Look into such a die for the 444 Marlin.

    My electric oven bottoms out at 170F and works well for cases after rolling them about in a towel. I remove them after 30 minutes and let cool. Long experience shows no residual moisture, even in flash holes. I hate to devote counter space to a...

    How is handling each boolit 2 extra times more efficient, less fuss and less complicated? I understand if you want to spend more time and trouble to get something different, but it sure isn’t any of the things you state. :confused:
