    kerplode replied to a thread Best "Truck Gun" lube in Our Town
    I use Corrosion X on all my stuff. Both as a lube and a surface protectant. Haven't had any issues with rust, but it's not really a super big problem here anyway. Renaissance Wax is good stuff too. Easy to apply, and the tub will last...

    kerplode replied to a thread Screwdriver Boolits in Cast Boolits
    The bullet in the OPs image is monolithic and doesn't expand at all. The flutes coupled with the spin of the bullet force fluid outward when it strikes tissue, but it'll penetrate through intermediate barriers without much deformation or loss of...

    This reminded me of a thread from another forum a couple months back... You might find it informative/interesting: M4Carbine.net - "45 Science" Success. Created from Shotgun Shell.

    Agreed! Don't like the price, move on. Nobody cares if you think it's too expensive. It's like half the members here expect people to sell them stuff at 1963 prices or they scream "price gouging" or some other nonsense. It's borderline...

    "Mining" is fundamentally the process of validating new blocks on the chain. Minting and distribution of new coins is a reward for mining on BTC. The miners aren't really "discovering" new bitcoins. The protocol mints them at a determined rate as...

    kerplode replied to a thread My nra jacket in Our Town
    Enjoy it. It looks like a nice jacket, and your wife is a dear for giving it to you. I wouldn't want or wear one, but you do you. The NRA is dead to me, and Wayne can EABOD and die. They're toast after that bankruptcy sham. Leticia James...

    It's all good, man. Crypto is a weird new world. I'm still learning a bunch about it myself. For better or worse, I do think blockchain tech will be the future of many things, including US and world currency. Plus, there will only ever be 21...

    If you do get into crypto remember these three things: 1) ALWAYS control your own private key. ALWAYS. Move your coins off the exchange and into a wallet you own as soon as their available for transfer. 2) Keep your seed and any passphrases...

    There are absolutely people still mining Bitcoin. Mining is how new blocks are validated and added to the blockchain. It's essential to the process. The rate at which new coins are minted to reward mining is much less now than it was at the...

    I'm more or less out of room to store brass and I have enough to last me several lifetimes at the rate I've been shooting over the last few years, but I still pick up every case I find. Just can't help it. What I need to do is stop picking it...

    This is shady advice. If someone at TSA finds primers in your luggage because you lied to the ticket agent, they're gonna go in dry. Your ass will end up in jail over it. Real talk...

    I don't actually remember the last time I changed the cabin air filter in my Tacoma, so it's probably been quite a few years. I should get it done sometime soon.

    No...Just to remind you that the auto company engineers don't care if it's hard for you to work on the car. Don't care. At all.
