As for finding cheap acreage, PA is not the place to find it. Although land prices are much better in PA than in say, NJ, they’re not the best prices. If you want lots of acres you might want to look out in the midwest and west at states such as Utah.

All my reloading equipment is a mix of Lyman,RCBS or Lee. My Lyman Orange Crusher press is 40 years old,I though about upgrading one time but just never did she took me this far so I’m sticking with it till the end. I bought the press in a kit,I’m still using the case trimmer although I’ve added a power assist shaft to make trimming my converted 9mm to 9 x 18 Mak cases and the .308 Win. case I convert to 300 Sav.

I also have a RCBS Lube A Matic that I bought off Ebay that came with 10 different sizer dies,eight of which I could use right off on bullets I was already casting. I also use a Lee Universal Expander die along with several neck expander plugs made by NOE they basically turn the die into a Lyman M die to expand and flair the case necks for different dia cast bullets.

I gave the D7 scales that came with the kit to a friend that was just getting into reload,I had a set of Dillon scales already and I gave my brother the #55 Lyman powder dumper as I had a RCBS DUO Measurer that I had picked up on the cheap years before. I also use a RCBS Lil Dandy along with 10 different rotors for all my pistol loads as well as some of my cast rifle loads.

As for dies I have just the basic 2 an 3 die sets by Lyman,RCBS an Lee, two of the 4 dies sets are from Lee that have the FCD. Never had any problems with any of the die set old or new,I just take them apart clean them up for the task at hand. I also use a Lee Universal Decapper on occasion when I’m punching out crimped in primers.

I used to prime on the press when I first got started but I have two of the old Lee round head priming tools that I have one set up to do SP/SR and the other is for LP/LR. I put a bit of moly grease on the hinge point about once a year and I never had one of the break,I think the oldest one is probably 30 years old or so.

Not entirely sure as to what class of dies.

Reloading for a co-worker. She brought me the dies, carbide, and the other components.

Other than the once in awhile clean and lubing, Lee dies never required additional tools for making adjustments.

I will give them the benefit of the doubt. She did say they were her fathers dies and he passed on a few years ago. Perhaps they were just stuck.

I’m retired from Modoc County, Cedarville, is the other end of the county. As long as your a righteous citizen you will have zero problems with guns in that part of.

The Sheriff their is a close friend, Mike Poindexter, is a dam good man. I’ve worked on and off with Mike since 1987, we were Resident Deputies and CHP, up in the Newell area back in the 80s.

Cedarville is gods country. County road 1 runs thru Cedarville, one direction lands you in Nevada, and the other direction lands you in Oregon, tough country, but awesome. The people their are all about America, and a way of life rarely seen anymore.

It’s not free of problems, but not bad. In 1989 the biggest Meth lab in America was taken out of a little burg, called ” Lake City” maybe 15 miles north of Cedarville. I was present, this was the last BIG Hells Angels lab to go down. The Mexicans were taking over the cook duties and selling exclusively to the HA.

Frankly the pic’s Cindy was looking out could have been the Lake City property. But three of those houses, the lab ran for years, undetected.

About the only work in that area is working for farmers or ranchers. This place is isolated, and it’s just stunningly beautiful country. The people their are tougher then a woodpeckers bill, with hearts the size of Texas.

I agree with everyone but I would not waste my time reading it nor should anyone else because nothing in the book will tell what
actually works for you to produce your own electricity, store it and distribute off grid.
There are many excellent books written about how to prevent EMP damage,Faraday cages,etc. I have all my protected electronics in metal
garbage cans with aluminum tape around the can top inside 14 Gage metal storage containers.
I know how to regenerate any kind of battery made,even 18 volt tool batteries and AGM sealed. I know how to get solar panels for the cheapest price,how to make them,what the cheapest charge controllers are,what gage wire works at what price, how to build many kinds of wind turbines that work, how to make wind turbine towers from scrap metal parts,where to find them, how to make micro-hydro that works with 3 designs and how to build Tesla “free electricity” devices that are not available as TRASH affiliate products, how to build and get to operate bicycle electricity generators with parts that work learned by long arduous testing and experience, for instance, sending back transformers that did not work.
Books I would recommend you buy and own:
1. ” Build Your Own Solar Panel: Generate Electricity from the Sun” by Phillip Hurley
2. “Solar II: How To Design,Build and Setup Photovoltaic Components and Solar Electric Systems” by Phillip Hurley
3. “Solar Electricity Handbook: A Simple practical Guide to solar energy-designing and installing solar PV systems” by Michael Boxwell
4. “Wind Power for Home & Business: Renewable Energy for the 1990s and Beyond” by Paul Gipe
5. ” Wiring Simplified” by F.P. Hartwell, W.C. Schwan and H.P. Richter
6. “The Ultimate Tesla Coil Design and Construction Guide” by Mitch Tilbury
7. “Building the Tesla Turbine” by Vincent R. Gingery
8. “Dark Winter: How the Sun is Causing a 30 Year Cols Spell” by John L. Casey

Just had my first experience reloading with RCBS dies . . .
Not impressed.

I have never had to use a allen key, or a pair of vice-grips and a wrench to adjust a seater die. The threads binded a lot too. Made it difficult to feel when the seater body touched the brass mouth, or when the seater plug touched the bullet flat nose.

The resizing die decapper pin did not impress me either. Kept moving, despite torquing down on the lock ring.

I will stick with Lee.

Junk as in cheap acreage, just to put a small “retreat” stash and regroup camp in.

I’m not sure anyone can spread the prepper mentality. Either you have it or you don’t. I’ve always had the deep down feeling of needing to be prepared since I was a kid. I don’t know why. So, how can I spread that? If what you mean is; do I encourage others to prep…..the answer would be no. Actions speak louder than words and you can pretty much tell just by what others do (or don’t do) in the present, whether or not they will prepare for the future. I have friends who raise their own chickens, garden, camp, hunt, etc. Those friends don’t need any advice from me. I have other friends who would have difficulty managing a car breakdown this week, let alone anything else. Again, those friends don’t need (nor would they appreciate) any advice from me.

I prefer to expend my energies where they will do the most good and that’s with my own situation and family. If friends or family ask for my advice or help in the matter I would certainly engage in that conversation, (although I am no expert) and from what I can tell, being prepared is more about doing than it is about talking. I’d say work on the basics and move up from there……the basics will keep you busy enough. At least they do for me b/c I am still working on that. I don’t talk about it much with anyone since there doesn’t seem to be any upside to it. That’s why I appreciate APN so much. :D

It is interesting you mention that, the bold.
As a kid I too found myself doing things that would likely translate into what we have now as the prepper movement.

Not sure if it has to do with upbringing, genetics, environment etc.

It may have to do more with the current disposable society. Why bother doing something that requires time, effort and energy when a person could just goto the store?

No, really. Some out there just take a knife, add some “tactical” like features and then add in the price hike.
No entirely sure what those features are concerning knives, but that is the best I can come up with.

Personally I like a knife made out of good steel, can keep an edge, and is comfortable for all day carry.
Additional features vary if it is fixed blade or a folding blade.

All my casting for rifles are of the 30 caliber variety 7.62 x 39 & 54r as well as 30-30,300 Sav. all the bullets I cast can be used in any 30 cal. rifle although some work better for the Russian calibers and some for the US calibers with a few crossovers. If I owned an AR in .223/5.56 you can bet I would be shooting cast in it as well.

Leading doesn’t have to be an issue in the gas system of semi auto rifles or in the bore as long as you do things right from the start. The biggest cause of leading is either is using to soft and alloy for the velocity / load pressure an or your bullet is undersized. Wheel weight are a good alloy to start with,by themselves when air cooled right out of the mold depending on what you have as far as the alloys makeup is as it can vary somewhat your BHN is going to run from 10 to 12 on the hardness scale.

Wheel weights contain both antimony as well as traces of arsenic and can be further hardens without adding any additional alloy,water quenching your bullets straight from the mold will increase the hardness of the bullet to between 15 & 18 BHN in 24 hours. Further hardening can be achieved by the presents of the arsenic,heat treating the bullets in a toaster oven using the time and temperature method in general about 400 degrees for 1 hour then quenching will give you a BHN in the hi 20’s which will be plenty hard for anything you can throw through the AR,however with most AR with standard twist barrels you velocity/RPM/Stability range is still going to limit you to the 2300 to 2400 fps. range.

Cast bullets in the 60 to 70 gr. range sized to .001 to .002″ over groove dia. gas checked with a good lube give best results. Powder coating your bullet is also a plus if you have the ability to do that as it can replace the tradition lubing process. A quick check on the net will lead you to lots of various load data but if I were working up a load I would start with H-4895 using about 13.5 grs starting load till I got reliable cycling an continue till accuracy dropped off. 2″ at 100 yds. would suit me just fine and is and has been done on a pretty regular basis with the velocity running around 2100 fps. with 15.0 to 16.0 grs. of H-4895.

Great post.
