    Maybe you need a harder grade bolt? Not sure what Lee uses. At least you can replace the bolt when it breaks, verses something worse happening. Agree with enlarging the hole in the sprue plate slightly to reduce binding.

    Love my Pennsylvania hunter and my old revolvers. I haven't purchased any S&W revolvers since they put locks on them. I am surprised they don't have locks on the semi-autos. Sad. Hopefully TC will get picked up by a company that is interested in...

    Last Sunday I decided to order two molds from MP, a HG#50 38 & 357 HBWC and a 32 HBWC. I decided to try UPS shipping, mainly because Fedex has problems finding me (finds the neighbors just fine though). Mihec shipped it Wednesday and it was on my...

    I tried 4 or 5 different rat poisons before Tomcat All Weather Bait Chunks. It worked well for me. I wired them into PVC pipe and place along their runs around the barn next to the wall. It took 2 large pails, about 40 pounds, and a month but we got...

    UPS delivered as planned on Friday. The UPS shipping was much faster than I expected. I ordered Sunday, Mihec shipped Wednesday, it was on my doorstep Friday afternoon. Glad I spent the extra $10 on UPS shipping.

    I used to fly with this all the time. The gate gal asked me about it, opened both blade and spike, held it aloft and stated "Look what he wants to bring on the plane!" Funny thing was she made me put it in my seabag, which I carried on the plane.

    I could not find any details on RMR’s alloy, but it should be fine if the hardness is similar. It should cast well with the added tin.

    I think the .38 will do everything needed at short ranges. The .223 bullets would be more frangible than the .38 if that is a consideration. Since you are struggling with the decision I would wait until it is no longer a struggle, if possible....
