    Do you put pledge on the fur or are you just talking about the antlers? Sliced bread sounds interesting.

    I’ve seen tip jars in all sorts of businesses besides food service. People put money in.

    I have an old deer mount that has been gathering dust for a number of years. I finally finished the wall where I plan to hang it. Is there anything besides vacuuming it to clean it up? I thought I might try some Murphy’s Oil soap on the antlers....

    Glad you are ok. I lost my eyebrows, eyelashes and most of my moustache once, when trying to light a propane hot water heater.

    We finally got rid of our fixed phone line, because those were the only kind of calls we were getting on it.

    Not only shipping, but customs duty too. Does Harbor Freight have mail order?

    I agree with you about the Lee tester not being all that easy to use. I often think about upgrading to a cabin tree tester. For anyone considering the Lee tester, consider paying extra for a Cabin tree. I wish I had.

    It looks great. A job well done. Now it’s time to shoot it.

    That’s why I stand up all mine on a silicone pad. If they have too small of a diameter, I often just use gas checks and LLA.

    It wouldn’t be hard to remove the place on the mold that makes the gas check diameter, if you have access to a lathe. It could probably be done with a good drill press too.

    GregLaROCHE replied to a thread We are fortunate in Cast Boolits
    You’re right, casting our own does give us a big range of options. Also, you don’t have to worry about the boolits you want being out of stock for who knows how long.

    I shoot them all the time in my 45/70, but don’t keep track of the accuracy of that gun these days. If you are looking for best accuracy, go with the gas checks.

    Imashoter2 is right, there here are a lot of variables involved. I’m sure some members will share their experiences and theories here. I water quench only because I can get undistorted boolits all the time, casting at a fast pace. When I use the...

    If you want it for hunting and firewood, I’d just let it grow as it wants. Nature tends to be pretty efficient when left alone. If you are looking to harvest quality logs someday, you’ll need a different strategy depending on what you have growing...

    Is the original bluing in good shape after all that, or will you need to reblue it?

    Most former military rounds like 303, 30/06, 308, etc, are all suitable for hunting medium game. One might argue, that for some of the biggest animals in Africa, more power would make it easier. However historically, many big beasts have been take...

    I’ve heard about that before in different areas. Bottleneck cases are presumed higher pressure guns and the projectiles could have a longer range. It makes sense to me if you can shoot a slug through a 12ga rifled barrel with a scope, why shouldn’t...

    I spray mine with Ballistol and then put them in a couple of Tupperware type boxes. I’ll leave the handles on unless I’m going to use a mold that needs a pair of handles. When going to use one, I first spray them down with carb cleaner and then...

    Keep up the good work. It looks like you will soon have a couple of nice guns. Keep the updates and pictures coming. Have you decided what kind of finish you will use when you get them all cleaned up?

    I once used Bisquisk a lot. One of my of the recipes with it my friends enjoyed was pineapple upside down cake. If milk bothers people, using water instead, won’t make a big difference in the taste with all that cheese.

    I have the Lee tester. I always wished I had spent the money (about twice the price) for one of the other types. I cut a hole in a clear plastic cup. That helped, but I don’t have that much confidence in the readings I get. Over here, I haven’t been...
