  1. Try finding this test. 3m Lead check --- Instant Lead Test.
  2. I reloaded for cas for 18 years commercially. I used several different powders. Some look the same but were very different. On the occasion I stopped loading and did not put the power back in its container, I might not remember what it was I was loading. This powder was put in a small can and filled half way with water. Let it sit for a couple of days then it went out to the rose bushes. (Lumpy, we agree here) It is not worth what could happen if you guess wrong.
  3. Check the cylinder bolt to make sure the edges have not been rounded off.
  4. I started in 1992. Built a cart that carried everything I needed and some extra tools and more ammo than needed. Plus a small box I could put my lunch in and stay cold with an ice bottle of water I drank as it melted. As time went on, read I got older, I made a smaller cart that carried only the necessities. 2 long guns and ammo for the match and couple of tools. Long rod for that squib that seems to show up in others guns. This worked well for years but it got harder to push or pull through the rocks and even the sand. I started seeing more 4 wheel carts show up. These did not have the issues with the rocks or sand. I thought seriously about building a 4 wheel cart. I did not but I made smaller lighter more compact cart. All the extra stuff did just find sitting int he truck where I did not have to push it around but was there in case I needed it. Same with extra ammo and back up gun if I though I needed it. Big fancy gun carts will turn heads but they tend to cause you to work harder than you need to. Small carts get everything done without the need back muscles straining. I think if I were to built another cart, it would have 4 wheels on it. And a wooden block brake between the wheels to lock them up so it did not roll when sat on or from the wind.
  5. Thought I would add the Brinell hardness of each alloy. ================ Commercial bullet alloy is normally Lead 92% Antimony 6% Tin 2% Brinell hardness = 15 ----------------- Linotype has been used for bullets for many years with good success. Lead 84% Antimony 12% Tin 4% Brinell hardness = 22 ----------------- Monotype Lead 72% Antimony 19% Tin 9% Brinell hardness = 28 ----------------- Old Clip on lead wheel weights Lead 95% Antimony 2.5% Tin .5% Arsenic .1% Trace elements 1.9% (Cadmium, calcium, silver, copper, etc) Brinell hardness = 9 ----------------- Pure lead Lead 100% Brinell hardness = 5
  6. Decide on a price for each box. Take it to the next shoot you attend. Set them out and they will most likely have anew home before the match starts.
  7. I had bought a new 71 van. After the last payment, I received notice I still needed to pay $.05 to get the title. Went to bank and made a big scene while standing in a long teller line. I knew the bank manager from many years and this scene was a conversation from 30 feet away about how the bank was holding my title over $.05. The manager went over to some file cabinets and brought me my title with an invoice showing the $.05 had been paid with original note marked paid in full.
  8. Examples Rifles with tacks https://www.google.com/search?q=rifles+with+brass+tacks+in+stock&client=firefox-b-1-d&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj_guqY-KfzAhXNrZ4KHetuAAcQ_AUoAnoECAEQBA&biw=1600&bih=757&dpr=1.2 https://www.amazon.com/Brass-Tacks-High-Dome-100/dp/B008EOYR2G https://www.google.com/search?q=where+to+get+brass+tacks&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwjp24j59afzAhUiIn0KHd2fBgIQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=where+to+get+brass+tacks&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQA1CBtChY_OYoYIzpKGgBcAB4AIABWYgBvgOSAQE2mAEAoAEBqgELZ3dzLXdpei1pbWfAAQE&sclient=img&ei=olFWYemCEKLE9APdv5oQ&bih=757&biw=1600&client=firefox-b-1-d
  9. The 32 caliber guns where hard to find years ago. When the Power Factor was introduced, the 32 caliber, 95 grain bullets had to have a minimum of 631.58'/second to make the minimum power factor. So down loading the 32 cartridge velocity was not really an opition to reduce recoil and stay legal. http://www.cliffhangershideout.com/power-factors.html
  10. I remember the first time I got an senior discount and did not ask for it. Trumatic Since then I have ask for the discount. I ask for, "Senior discount, VA discount, nice guy discount and I will not cause trouble discount." One of those usually works.
  11. APN50, HP-38 and W231 are all on the ADI chart. Having manufactured new and reloaded ammunition for cas shooters for 18 years, I have used both HP 38 and W231. My load for 38 special and 357 magnum was the same powder charge. The length for 38 special was 1.54" and for the 357 magnum was 1.58". (using 125gr TC bullet) I also shoot Rossi 357 marked carbines. I have 8 of them and they all feed the 1.58" magnum ammunition without any problems. Any longer and problems could come up. Link to chart. http://www.adiworldclass.com.au/powder-equivalents/
  12. That can be the most ego crushing question to ever ask. Especially if she answers it truthfully.
  13. A simple google search will bring up lots of drawings you can resize to make patterns. I have made hundreds of targets for clubs in the past.
