  1. 2G ACM is really fun. I've only shot one match in Tucson, and it was very physical. I don't think the match I shot was nearly as physical as the Brutality matches, but I can't wait to go back. It's a good reason to stay in shape, and the dudes there are pretty cool.

  2. Congrats, Trego Kid! I attended 4 state WBAS matches (NM, TX, MO, OK) over a 6 week period in Aug-Oct, and every one of them were extremely well-produced and well-attended. Wild Bunch is alive and growing, and it's attracting a lot of new shooters from more modern disciplines.

     

    Until SASS affords the same modernization to the WBAS wire as they have here, I think the SASS Wire is an excellent place to discuss anything related to SASS, including WBAS or CAS.

    You will find these recommendations closely match those of Glen Fryxell and C E (Ed) Harris, two of the leading experts in cast bullet making.

    An excellent book by Fryxell is at:

    Thanks for the link -- this is a good read. The author claims sawdust and sawdust alone accomplishes all the goals of fluxing the melt. I have some paraffin too, so I think I'm going to try a bit of paraffin and a spoon of sawdust to get the best of both worlds.

     

    Is there any reason to not combine paraffin and sawdust, or is it just overkill?

     

    I scored a small pile of lead cable sheath recently, and it's fairly clean, but it does have some dirt caked in it from where it was laying on the ground for a few years. I'll probably wash it, dry it, then flux with sawdust and paraffin before casting into ingots. This will be my first attempt at melting scrap down -- thanks for the great guidance in this thread!

  4. I was about to place an order just to see -- credit purchases can always be disputed. However, they only accept PayPal friends & family (which doesn't provide any purchase protection), Zelle, and Venmo. In the payment instructions, they state that you need to contact them for their account details and to NOT send the money to their business address.

     

    If it was a CC purchase, I'd be all over it, but there are too many things wrong here.
