    "The closure of the last primary lead smelting plant in the United States in Herculaneum, Missouri will not have any noticeable effect on ammunition supplies or prices, NSSF and ammunition manufacturers say. Why are they pulling a Clark Gable-like "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn?"...

    Alright, I'll admit it... I'm new to reloading. On top of that I've chosen to reload 9x18 for my Makarov... I got my dies. I've been saving my brass. I can readily find primers locally.

When using a rest like this does anyone secure the firearm to the sled using a strap? Is there any reason to or does the rifle...

    A primary lead smelter is one that can take ore mined from the earth and turn it into refined lead. It appears that the EPA has placed new restrictions on the 120 year old plant, forcing it to either invest $100m into the plant to clean it up or close the doors. They chose the latter. Upside is...

    I need sources of pure lead for casting minies. I can't use wheel weights as they are made of a zinc-lead alloy that is too hard for muzzleloaders. I could order it online but that is not cost effective as I would have to pay for shipping. There are a couple local sources - one is a scrap metal...
