    GregLaROCHE replied to a thread Softening Alloy in Cast Boolits
    A lot of handgun boolits I think. The 22s are mostly shot at 50 meters. The lead there is softer, but there’s a lot less of it and it is harder to collect because of a different type of backstop.

    I finally received real “Root Destroyer” 99% copper sulfate from the US. I am ready to do an experiment to see how it effects hardness of alloys. I plan to melt around ten pounds of my range scrap ingots in a Lee twenty pound bottom pour pot. I...

    I’ve always heard of telephone books soaked in water being used. Unfortunately, phone books are becoming rare items these days.

    That’s interesting. It makes sense. I hope they are planning to sell BP to the public. Otherwise, that’s going to be a lot of rocket engines. I guess the fireworks industry would be a big market.

    I always thought it was important for kids to grow up with bicycles. All the basic mechanical skills and concepts learned from maintaining one, would be an asset in life.

    I have quite a few guns hanging on my walls and I try to shoot them all at least once a year. I never bought a gun I didn’t intended to shoot.

    I’ve found that after soaking penetrating oil and waiting, an impact type screw remover works wonders. The type you hit with a hammer and the force keeps the blade in the slot and turns it at the same time.

    The surest way is with a reverse osmosis system. Probably more expensive than other other systems, but the surest. Sinking a well is a start, but you should still get it checked for dangerous chemicals.

    Don’t count on the names or numbers telling you how much of a change is safe. Always go to a reloading manual for you loads. If you just look at a powder burn rate table, you will see that generally the difference names and numbers don’t usually...

    I’m sure a lot of us have been in similar positions. You just have to hang in there and if you’re not afraid to work hard, you’ll find something. It’s always darkest before the dawn. Tough times help us appreciate the good times.
