Hi folks,

Just joined up and checking it out.

A little history;

I began casting in 1977 at my dads Gun Shop and still do. Currently I have around 140 Moulds, 7 Luber Sizers, 2 Lead Pots, and smelting equipment.

I do a lot of Muzzle Loader projectile casting as well as BPCR and Smokeless Big Bore (i.e. .45 Colt, 45/70 & 50/70).

Happy to help out if I can!

Jeff

 Welcome Jeff. I showed your post about your equipment inventory to my wife, who thinks I have too much "gun stuff ".

THANKS!

Welcome. I too am an accumulator of molds, mine collection is now just 2 away from 350. Way too many for any sane minded person. So you are doing just fine.

If you are interested in competition, Windhill Range near Aledo holds many matches both military and traditional. They are a good bunch of shooters and the pace is very informal.

Welcome.

And WOW !!!

I also drool in my sleep. I firmly believe that true happiness is a warm gun. Did I mention how much I HATE auto-correct on this blasted tablet.
