OK, had this idea, couldn’t sleep so made this video on it. Empty the Lyman Brass Smith Powder Measure without removing it from the base. Uncle Jim seemed to struggle with it. So I fixed it! I modded a junk microscope to hold my 20X microscope for the Lee hardness tester, too. Middle of the […]
Nope, NOT behind enemy lines. Just 300 pounds of future blaster pills.p I inventoried my lead stash. I actually have closer to 400#, but two pails are deeply stashed under the steps where I need a come-along to drag them out, so just estimating they weigh 100#. They were wheel weights I salvaged so they […]
So, I was out shooting some range footage for the stash. Had a Hot Load that jammed me up. Flattened the primer pretty good. Blew it out completely. At least it pulled free of the chamber. Small favor from above, kids. In this photo I pimp my buddy Mike’s gun shop as well. Treats me […]
It's my TacoApocalypse post and VR to Full.Lead.Taco.
Uncle Jim posted this idea and I just stole it from him: https://thereloadersnetwork.com/2018/09/08/a-simple-rack-for-your-extra-lee-4-hole-turrets/ I was so impressed with this idea, I dug through my brass pile and found some .308 Win. and 7.62 NATO cases n the scrap bucket. I have cutoffs of “Engineered” decking and the items were screaming to be joined. So I […]
Here, I “show off” my personal reloading bench. It’s a simple table that was in a completely useless breakfast nook when we bought the Brick Pile. The table remains but the nook is part of the Kitchen today. The rear of the table is attached to the wall with “L” brackets and there is a […]
No video, just old skewl text and crayon drawings.. Back with some new data on the 230 Grain Lee “Missile” atop 5.5 grains of CFE Pistol in the Ruger American 300 BLK bolt gun.The Shout out is to Kyle because a few weeks back we were in a dialog via Email or Facebook about these […]
Well, folks, this may be my last range video. Just becoming an awful lot of trouble to completely load and unload it from the vehicle to the basement every trip. Remember to charge everything, hope for good weather, and end up with a less than quality video regardless of what I do. Ok, whining over, […]
Shooting this Ruger American Ranch Rifle in .300 AAC /BLK / Whisper: gathering data to dial in some bolt action sub sonics. I shoot some test loads in a Ruger American Ranch in .300 BLK. A couple bullets that I cast but had less than good results in my AR platform Rifle[s] 180 grain Lee Precision C309-180-R Double Cavity Mold and the 230 grain Missiles Lee Double Cavity Mold .309-230-5R.
I have been looking at the Ruger American for awhile. Seems to be mostly well liked with a few warts. I had my gun shop order a 16" version of this bolt action blaster for me. My main reason for the 300 bolt gun is the sub sonic light powder loads I could use for cheap plinking.
First, let me apologize for the truly horrid audio of the last half of the video. Lee Universal Decaper using Lee Case Collator and Lee Multitube Adaptor for the Lee Bullet Feeder. Decapping a couple hundred 9MM brass from the morning at the range. The Disk in the hopper keeps you from dropping cases directly into […]
OK, folks, another Wildly acclaimed comedy released by Old Dog New Tricks Studio. Today we muddle our way through Mail Call from LoB, Scooter Drive Tumbler modifications, My highly specialized, copyrighted and patented RPK or Rapid Prototyping Kit. We introduce the world to the Fully Open Source Jam Master Mark II, an essential for every […]
Built this thing from a mobility scooter drive and stuff I had around. 50 cent pails from the bakery [don’t ask]. One bucket is bolted to the hub of the drive unit. I call it a sleeve drive. Tumbling buckets just slip in that one and you can use any combination of tumbling methods without […]
Range squirrel got me looking for a drive for a wet tumbler similar to his with a wiper motor. This Mobility scooter drive unit is what I found. Quick clip because I don’t have time to do anything much beyond showing what the raw drive looks like to start. I will post another video tomorrow […]
Ok, folks. My first ever, yes “ever” public video. I use a vintage dental tool ultrasonic cleaner to clean cases when I get in from the range. I much prefer it to dry media tumbling, and, while I never tried wet pin tumbling, it looks like a lot of effort for a really nice job. […]
Hello, My name is Tom, I am 67 years old, been a gun person since I was conceived, I think. I certainly had a .22 rifle before I had a tricycle. My old man fought in Korea, I fought in Viet Nam. We both stopped lead in the process of serving this great nation. We […]
