    I use a hand slicer to cut the potatoes very thin. The ones on top curl up through the cheese and get crispy.

    Has it reached the US now? I heard it was going to take awhile because it was so far away, but that was a news report from awhile ago too.

    A lot of us seem to remember the same shows. It’s probably because back then, you were lucky if you had three channels to choose from, to decide what you would watch.

    I started to notice that trend before that. What makes it worse is it usually doesn’t add anything. It was just stuck in the script to make a few people happy. Rin Tin Tin was great. I was able to download a bunch from YouTube so my youngest son...

    Amazon just put out a movie about the I Love Lucy show. I didn’t think the movie was that great, but it did bring out how censored television was back then.

    GregLaROCHE replied to a thread Softening Alloy in Cast Boolits
    I’m considering giving this a try. Pretty much out of curiosity. I can buy copper sulfate online, which is the easiest for me. Is this the type of copper sulfate that will work? If you enlarge the picture of it, everything is written in English.

    I wish I could buy coal where I am. I’ve used it in the past. Amazing how much heat you can get out of a little bit of coal.

    I miss read the original question. I was thinking it was about the boolit sizing dies and that’s what I was commenting about.

    GregLaROCHE replied to a thread Softening Alloy in Cast Boolits
    The problem is it’s an indoor range with a metal backstop and the boolits are very flattened and smashed up. It’s just about impossible to tell what they were. I do collect from the 50 meter range where mostly muzzle loaders and 22s are shot and the...

    GregLaROCHE replied to a thread Softening Alloy in Cast Boolits
    I’ve used a harder round ball with a patch in a smooth bore and it seems to work fine. I have an Enfield that shoots hollow based conical boolits. Pure lead is recommended because it’s working on the principal that the explosion forces the bottom...

    Check this guy out. This may not have the most information video, but it will lead you to it. Seems zinc is a lot harder, so a hollow point may help for expansion hunting, however, 35 caliber is not a small hole maker either. They are a lot lighter...

    It’s hard to find wooden boxes these days. Wood is so much nicer to handle than plastic. No worries about static electricity either.

    How exactly did you load it? Powder, then a card and anything else before the boolit? Don’t forget to clean your brass as soon as possible, or at least put them in water, if you want it to last.

    I can see the gun not firing when the owner pulls the trigger and thinks its empty. He then pulls the trigger again when not pointed in a safe direction and it fires. Also, what happens when the battery goes dead?

    The big advantage of the NOE sizing method is that once you have the basic parts, the individual sizing plugs aren’t very expensive. I have a number of sizes for each of my calibers. I would suggest going up from the jacketed bullet size to max size...

    Have you considered casting some zinc boolits for him with your molds. According to Elvis Ammo and others, they work. Otherwise, get some bismuth. I think Roto Metals is selling it.
