  2. I exchanged a few messages with Harry Simmons (sales rep for Victory) and it seems they are starting out with the most popular sizes and styles. My opinion is they are taking advantage of the covid sales boom, and the fact that often in the last year items were out of stock from older known vendors. I recently was asked to work on a project using some Victory hooks. I was sent Mustad, Eagle Claw, and Victory hooks in the same sizes. I found on testing the Victory hooks were very sticky sharp. At a glance they look very good and on pull testing they were as strong before permanent bend as
  3. I did check around to see if anybody besides RCBS had these at a lower price yet. I didn't see any, and MidwayUSA still shows them as not available with no back order.
  4. I have really liked my old analog RCBS Pro Melt 20 lb lead pot. Its what I use for all my testing, and it has far out service (at higher cost) my older Lee Pots. I have absolutely no financial interest in a RCBS, and I used to be (still am maybe) a Lee dealer. The Lee pots are "ok for the price," but the RCBS pot I have is in my opinion much better. Well RCBS came out with the RCBS 2 with a digital controller a while back, had a few issues with the new controller, and then their weren't any available for a very very very (yes 3 verys) long time. I just got an email notice today that the d
  5. I have heard Shawn is only doing limited custom work for a handful of people these days, but I have not been able to confirm that. I asked him, but he never responded to me. Maybe just because I make molds.
  6. I do a lot of custom work, but not if you are in a hurry. I've got several months (about 4) backlog on the custom jobs board right now.
  7. Do they have any Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails nail polish?
  8. I saw this posted on one of the Facebook groups a little while ago.
  9. I have not, but its been unavailable for very long time now. Running a 220 outlet to the back is not THAT big of a deal. I had to run outlets for all my other machines and its not a big deal. Plus, I plan to run a little bit larger hard plastic injection machine sometime in the future back there anyway.
  10. Thanks for the replies everybody. Roto Metals actually does sell a 6% antimony alloy at a hair over $5/lb called hardball alloy for guys who want harder lead bullets. They also used to sell a product they called hard alloy (I have about 20 lbs of it) that guys would mix with their pure lead to get various hardness lead for bullet casting. I didn't see "hard alloy" listed on their website just now, but I may not have known what to look for. I originally bought mine from them off Amazon. Don't know if they still sell on Amazon or not. Now I need to find a second casting pot to
  11. Dead soft pretty nearly pure lead pours very well. I've been buying near pure lead from roto metals for years for testing. In the real world a harder alloy, not brittle, would be better. I'm not looking for suggestions for scrap lead or salvage lead or "I use so much wheel weights" or anything like that. I'm looking for a harder tougher lead alloy that still casts relatively easily. An answer from somebody who's knowledgeable and can possibly provide approximate percentages of other metals in the alloy.
  12. Try posting some videos. Yeah, what he said. Also, a channel with a geographic name will have narrower appeal than one of with more topical name. "Fishing" would be better than "Decatur Fishing" for example. "WE" Call it Catching - NOT Fishing If you want to go with a geographic title trying using one that's a little borader.

  13. No clue. I've never poured bismuth. This is an aluminum mold and for lead casting it pours best when pressure casting. That is holding it up against the spout on a bottom pour pot before opening the valve in the pot.
  14. DOH! I just realized you are in Arizona too. I'm sure slow sometimes. LOL. We should hook up on the Colorado River sometime. I fish out of Fisher's Landing a lot, but I also know most of the dirt launches in stretches of river that you can't get to from there.
