    Most splitshot molds are for soft lead only. I tried ww and range lead but it is too brittle when you try to open the removable split shot and they broke at the hinge. Unless you have false teeth then biting split shot is a good way to buy your...

    It had an e-bay link and those are not allowed. Is it a metallic cartridge or shotgun press?

    We hear that sound when they get a neighborhood cat and it is the cat screaming. Sounds like someone is being murdered except you find a dead cat with no guts.

    Yup, they are more worried about spending sportsmans money on wolves and their parks then wildlife. Also many seem to becoming more interested in being police officers then wildlife officers then providing information on hunting and fishing...

    Check with DOW they may get you some. At least they did back in the 1970's when my GP farmed east of Longmont. We used them to keep the geese out of the winter wheat.

    I tried that with mine but being so old they did not have the hoppers or the drop tubes for my model. I agree RCBS is the best when they have the parts.

    Fat32 is the old dos standard that Win xp will let you format to. I still use xp on a couple of computers but it takes some time to format 128 gigs to fat32.

    No problem. I found mine throw more consistent loads with this hopper, it may be because of the built in baffle. beside you can see thru them and they don't discolor. Mine are the old Ohler types and the hopper hasn't been available since the 80's...

    I broke down and bought 2 or these for my RCBS measures. I should have done it 10 years ago. A little expensive but worth every penny.

    May be creepy but as their friend you are stalking them in reverse in your analysis. Are you aware they are watching you? Friendship is a 2 edged sword in real life too, you get out if it what you put in.
