Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

IRONY ---- It can not be escaped....We have heard that there is no writing that can’t be made better by shortening. While this may be very true, people are a funny lot. If this literary practice was really used to any extent our libraries could be 95 % smaller....but who wants that? Most any book or...

These are just cheap burrs from eBay but can make about any bullet mold one may like...in aluminum.

Seep Willow – it is not a willow https://outdoorselfreliance.com/mulefat-seep-willow-baccharis-salicifolia/ It is easy to strip the bark and cut out the knots, makes uniform charcoal, this is what a lot of people don’t bother with. Most will just make sloppy black powder and wonder why it does not w...

Scan.BMP.jpg For those that do not use the black powder much because of the fouling - a wooden plug - not my idea - just something I saw. By the way, you can believe it or not...but I have found that if I ball-mill my components and then ball-mill the complete black powder, and then ball-mill it so...

Here is way to make any kind of custom bullet mold - just drill a hole in a piece of aluminum, just easier to work with, and the hole for a nail to push out the cast bullet. One can round the end of a drill bit to whatever shape one may desire.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Scan.BMP.jpg Do you recognize this? I was there a couple of days after an anniversary and boy the mothers wouldn't let their little kids look at me. I gather that someone here wouldn't let them tear it down so as to be a constant reminder. This was before they built a nice fence around it to keep p...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

We have heard that, “The more one learns, the less they know.” That is probably chiseled in stone some where. But boy oh boy this couldn’t be more true. With linseed oil, once when one knows a little bit about it, there is suddenly a whole lot that they don’t know about it. In the late 50’s I tried ...

Here is a BHN tester that I would normally use - just read the diameter of the indentation from my chart....can't be much simpler than this. I have made a few of these...with the official size of the round steel balls.

BHN lead tester- - - Here is a picture of ‘one’ of my BHN testers that I have made that reads out directly. Years ago when I first started hearing all of the noise about the cast bullets being made harder by dropping in water when hot and heat treating in ovens, etc., I thought wait a minute, this d...

Scan.BMP.jpg Here is the main reason that I don’t get an elk or deer license any more. My first year here I bought both a deer and elk license...and that was it, no more. This isn’t hunting around here. It is just load your gun and shoot them. They migrate from the mountains to the lowlands for the...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Topic - accuracy...or Off Topic accuracy? Just the other day I was visiting a Lady Doctor for the first time and after 10 minutes maybe she told me that I had a fife expectancy Bell Curve of 3 years. I do not recall ever having a doctor tell me this before. And I said, ”Bell Curve?” And she said, “Y...
