  1. Trying some new powder coat

    "Boolit" Casting
    So I’m tiring of all the different colors and their different temperamental behaviors. Some coat sparsely some will layer on like pvc glue. Some you can tumble in a vibratory tumbler,some you have to spray. Well......I’m now focusing on those that I can tumble large quantities of bullets in and...

    Question #1. Does a LYMAN brand 4-cavity #429421 mold cast the same bullet as an IDEAL brand single-cavity #429421 mold? Question #2. Can powder coating be done (instead of lubing) on both "knurled" bullets AND "grooved" bullets?

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I've been trying to find a really good load for my new 6x45 ar and I have used a good many spherical powders and have not achieved anything close to what I'm looking for.

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    I’m fairly new to cap and ball revolvers and i wanted to get a couple of opinions about this Pietta Starr revolver. It shoots fine except for two of the nipples are a couple thousands higher than the others so often i’ll get a mis-fire. What would be the best nipple brand to replace the factory...
