Stainless should work fine. I use and old big aluminum pot but it's really thick. Old Caphalon I think. Your pot should not have melted. I am wondering if you just heated it too fast before the lead...

I figured I would eventually do a color fill with paint, but I tried white crayon first. It looks great and has held up amazingly well! I can change colors any time easily. I may never paint them...

It's possible that they made them from the stuff they sell for skateboard decks. It's about the same material as the rubber decal grips, but I am not sure if it removes cleanly.

Does a G17 have to be stock for IDPA? I have a Ghost Rocket 3.5# trigger bar and was just curious. Easy enough to swap back though.

+1 for the Bersa cc. I love ours and it has functioned flawlessly. Great value for the money. It has tiny sights, but I got used to them.

Congrats on your new machine! Jealousy here ;) But I'll slug it out a while with my single stage for a while. I'm so new at this that every reloading session is still an adventure! :D

I got the RCBS Uniflow powder measure with my kit, and I am very happy with it so far. It's fast and accurate, at least to the 10th of a grain, and infinitely adjustable. But they are about $70 if...

Question about Mule Snot

So my Lee 452 230 gr TC bullets, lubed with Lee Liquid Alox, shot great with no leading at all in my XDm. What I did notice, is a hell of a lot of smoke and a peculiar odor that was no doubt the...

It helps a lot to know the barrel length of the test gun and the COAL that they used to develop the test pressures. I like that Nosler #6 does talk about determining the COAL that is appropriate for...

YAY :D My new OAL and crimp with the MBC LRNFP worked fine in the 45 XDm. Even better, the Lee 200 gr. truncated cone bullets that I cast all worked great with no feeding issues!! Oh Happy Days :)
