    I will have to give that a try too. I used a shallow flat cast iron pan this time, but I think I will look for a deeper and smaller pan to give that a try. This was mostly a test to see if it could be easily done, and indeed the torch wasn't...

    I have a lot of pure lead and lead/tin solder, but not much else. So shooting magnum loads can be difficult without using up a lot of tin. Wheel weights don't seem to exist in quantity anymore so I wanted another solution. You can buy...

    Finally got the chance to get out and shoot some roundballs today. Got some good results, I had the best accuracy between 38-40 grains of bluedot, so I think that's where I'll focus my efforts. I went up to 44 grains but the accuracy suffered and...
