    I'm sure you figured this out, but R-P is Remington-Peters. They have been making brass forever. I actually like Remington brass because it is thin, and doesn't seem to harden as quickly as some. It is my second choice after Federal brass. Because...

    You can order any size you want from JT ball molds. They were pre-2020 about $42 shipped to my door in about 3 weeks. I don't know if it is still true. https://www.ballmoulds.com/ He cuts the molds to the CAVITY size. I find on average, they drop...

    I'm not surprised you didn't get good accuracy with the REAL. I can't even get them to shoot in the muzzleloaders they were designed for. The following is the load I shoot in my H&R Tracker II (rifled barrel). I couldn't even get factory loads to...

    I guess I still don't understand. Did you do all the work yourself, sheetrock and all? Surely there is more than $2500 just in the sheetrock, paint, and labor required to pull wire just for lights.

    Why exactly would you do this? Are you rewiring the house with separate outlets and switches? Are you only installing switches and lights?

    I certainly didn't post this. Who said it wouldn't work? I've been rather secretive, because this still hurts bad, but I lost one of the closest people to me in 2019. He was a duck hunter, he is 1/2 the reason I was am a duck hunter. I tested this a...

    I'll be straight up. I think TKO is a bunch of bologna. It makes about as much sense as using a bullets energy (usually ft lb's), which I don't like either. Don't get me wrong, these 12 gauge slugs we are talking about are right up there with most...

    1: Try it, there is no danger. Just make sure after you shoot there are no barrel obstructions. I've done it, and it more or less goes pop a little more than just a primer, wad flies out, nothing too exciting. 2: I wouldn't bother with this. If...

    I know nothing about connecting solar panels to houses, but I really doubt anyone is re wiring their house for DC. All solar panels I've dealt with have been 12 volts as well, although that was small scale stuff, maybe they make panels for different...

    Google SketchUp will do what you want. It's a little different from the normal commercial CAD software, but it doesn't take that long to figure it out. To be honest, I think the best thing for building a bench is a notebook, pencil, and ruler.

    If this is your first single shot Henry, you will like it. What is the trigger pull, if you have a gauge? Guess if you don't. The triggers were flat out garbage when they first came out, but the recall really got their game together. I personally...

    Well, these aren't THAT crazy of loads. There's still a number of big game rifles that are worse. What always gets me is somebody with a 45-70 or similar comes by and starts touting all this about sectional density, that they are so big, they don't...

    I've known people to run small things with solar panels, and they do work. The big ones like MaryB is talking, are also big money, almost as much as the property they are on. The only person I ever met who had one big enough to run their whole house...

    To be honest, there is no reason 2400 would not make a fine slug powder for heavy loads, but you will not find any data for it. I can not recommend anyone use 2400 powder, as I've never used it myself. It is a powder with almost no data in shotguns....

    It won't break his shoulder, it just won't be pleasant. I've never been able to get my hands on those Breneke gold crush's. Those are by far the most powerful factory slug you can buy for a 12 gauge. If you just want to get a taste of recoil, one...

    It sure is nice, that's why I moved to one. A lot of states are like NY, although not quite as picky on the enforcement. I really doubt Randy is going to be driving around loaded with that. It is flat out illegal in CA to have a loaded firearm in a...

    There are two scenarios I have experienced that have caused an out of round bullet some of the time. A third was an out of round mold, but every bullet would be that way. #1 is poor fill out. It is very possible to have a bullet out of round because...

    I don't see anything wrong with that. You would probably want to cast them of something other than pure lead, although pure lead will work. With clip on wheel weights, they might be real close to 1000 grains. That's a lot of mass heading down range....

    Electric motors don't really have any moving parts. The shaft obviously turns, but nothing mechanical causes it to turn. You are 100% correct on the rotary engine. I just double checked, and I did not realize the rotor and shaft (eccentric...
