    Centershot: When you are shooting off a rest, place the rest so it is inline with the fore end. I have a 6x6 with a Terry cloth towel I shoot over for pinpoint sighting in. Use a somewhat loose hold on teh gun so it is free to move. This allows...

    Froggie: I went into detail on how to get the Lee Loader to make good crimps on another thread by 3B in the Casting for Shotguns Forum. If you are only going to load 25 rounds or so at a time you would be wasting money on a MEC Loader dedicated to...

    Mr Frog Person Sir, you cannot possibly have too many tools, yet. Storing them in the living room only means you are proud of them and want other to see your collection. Nothing at all with having too many. :p

    I have a nice stainless steel set of handles purpose made for 7/8x14 dies that otherwise copy the Ideal/Lyman design. Of course the maker forgot to mark them with his name. They are a product of the early 1980's if my old memory still...

    S&W also made a fixed sight version called the Model of 1950 Military. These externally resembled the old M1917 revolver, but were produced in commercial finish, having the postwar hammer block and short action with the S- serial number prefix. ...

    Yes, duplexing is not to be confused with mixing or "blending". I have some interesting information on the blending of smokeless and BP but have not tested any. I imagine any extruded smokeless power in the burning range of 4227 - RL7 would...

    Obviously more heat is not the real answer. The answer is to get the alloy into the mould faster before it cools and starts solidifying. Alloy cools much faster that we thin. As mentioned, using a ladle is probably the real answer. Long ago I...
