mRrOcHe100: Your like Thor the way you handle that hammer!
Jared Timms: what you have for an anvil is 136lb railroad track.
Daniel Cook: it looks like the piece of railroad track I have as an anvil in my basement, and use all the time. It was the first thing I noticed in the video.
Poppys Bench: Been casting for my 45/70 since the mid 70's and other calibers too,old wheel weights or printers linotype are my favourite metals.Ah rail track,so useful,I have an anvil too,they also make ideal fire and ant proof fence posts,power poles,bridge beams over yr creek,where-ever imagination takes you,that piece has a wear roll on the side there the weight of many trains has peened the surface over the edge,this rail would have been condemned to scrap.
LittleGreenMonsters GoRAWW: rail road track
Nathan Dean: train rail an wat your doing is stealing from a trian company. even if the rail isnt used any more that is still theft.
NineFeZX: Ha ha ha. That is a good sense of Humor."there is long stretches of it" I fear dead pan is a lost art
huk: try paper patching . pure lead at 1900. yes even works in your lever guns. but you dont need expansion with a 45. no deer has ever been lost r shot twice after being hit in the front end with a 500 grain postel 45. but my 50 is more acurate with 500 grain pp patch
Robert Lominick: Looks like railroad track, or tracks used for large gantry cranes used in shipyards.. In some Marina's, that move large boats, and yachts, use similar type track.. Back in the day, say 80 years ago, mines used track, small mountain trains used a narrow track and were not as heavy as today's modern track.. The track you have looks to small to support modern trains, but, not by much..
grassroot011: That red home made anvil, a section of railroad track.
Joseph G.: When I handloaded, back in the '70s, I wanted to cast lead, but I needed the tin and antimony you mentioned. At one point, I thought of continuing with the purchased "lead" bullets I was handloading, but to melt some down in order to cast them as I'd like them to be. An example would be a 200 grain bullet for .38 Special, just to experiment. I was accepted to grad school, so between work and grad school, the time wasn't there. If I could only turn back the clock! :)
Garth Ridgeway: i cant deal with your fingers that close to the hammer!
AirGunWarriors: Just subscribed, great information in your videos! Question: What roll does the balance of a bullet play in its design? Are bullets designed to be nose heavy? Base heavy? Are they designed to be balanced perfectly based on their center of gravity? Look forward to your response. Thanks again, AGW.
Matthew Petrie: Hey, i got a railroad track anvil too! Sweet!
monkeyboy4746: Excuse me, I believe you have my railroad track, you took it off my desk when I was not looking.
IanPolerCP: Are those dumdums?
Wayne Washburn: Hello Hickok45, those are railroad rails you are using as an anvil. They are perfect for that task. I wish I had a stash like you do.
Aoshi.S2: living and learning... some day I gonna shot something..
Iliveoutside Outdoors: What you have there is a piece of railroad track
Patrick Slevin: Back in the late 70's I cast 250 grain Keith type .429 caliber bullets for my Ruger Super Blackhawk. I would cast them out of pure linotype and what a beautiful bullet it made. I found many of them, spent down range, that would shatter on impact with anything hard. It wasn't unusual at all to find the nose split down the middle with absolutely no obturation of the lead. I ended up getting some very soft plumbers lead and mixed it 50/50 with the linotype which ended up giving me a perfect batch of #2 Lyman alloy. I guess it did, anyway. I guess this because every bullet I cast came out exactly the weight Lyman called out in their Cast Bullet Handbook. God I wish I had all that lead, my molds and sizer! I finally quit casting because I could buy lead bullets so cheap that I didn't figure my time was worth it. Boy was I wrong. Those bullets I case were some of the best bullets I've ever loaded. And, I could control the mix to give me expansion if I desired with the 45 acp or 44magnum. Casing bullets is an art, I sure do miss it.
