    Greetings, The name is Kameron thought I'd contribute an idea given to me by my Opa. The mould is quite simple consisting of only dry sand and a pencil (or something like it).

    A friend of my Dad's gave him a 5 gal pail full of melted lead and wheel weights. It must weigh about 150 lbs. I brought it home this weekend. I can't wait to start melting and casting. I have a Lee double .445 mold with lead pot and ladle. I also have a 3 x 1 lb ingot mold, so when I get...

    Would getting a rabbit just below the neck with a 12mm lead kill it?

    Hi Guys. I have been wondering, what is the best ammo for pigeons? I've looked at 9.5mm steel balls but wasn't sure whether they would be okay? All opinions welcome! Cheers Luke
