Guns • Re: Cast reloads for .223?

February 14, 2017 orangetom1999 0

Knowing how to cast is indeed a great skill..and I don’t mean only bullets. I know many people here on the Chesapeake Bay who cast their own lead fishing weights even though they are plentiful in the stores.

Danthman is correct about paper patches in the olde days of Black Powder. It is still a good piece of knowledge to have..paper or gas check.

I figure that if it becomes bad enough our semi guns may become single shots…if we cannot get them to correctly feed with whatever we have to feed them.

Hardness of the lead sort of reminds me of the juggling act that Knife makers have in hardness or edge keeping characteristics of certain metals.

Hard knives tend to have brittle blades …due to the hardness. They can keep an edge much better..but they tend to be brittle and not sufficiently elastic…or over all…strong and take a beating without breaking.

If you go to elastic…you lose the edge keep qualities.

It is sort of a race for the magic do all blend of metals…and so too in lead qualities for bullets.

I had two Gerber knives years ago…which had blades made from L7 tool steel. I noted that the steel in these knives was similar to that in a good thread cutting tap. Very hard. But it was brittle. It would hold an edge wonderfully ..but if you damaged the edge it was difficult to get it back ..the metal was so hard. At the same time the blade was not one you would use to pry as so many do with a knife or a screwdriver…it would break because it was so hard..and thus brittle.

A trade off. But I did admire it’s ability to keep an edge verses the cheap disposable stainless steel knives I take to work because I can afford to lose them.

Those L7 tool steel knives were fixed blades and also expensive. I would never take them to work. To many people there have no appreciation for good steel knives. I get aggravated at the number of people who will not get a knife but have the latest cell phone and must needs always borrow someone else’s knife. Shoot!! ..they cannot even keep a ball point pen…and must constantly borrow a simple pen. Heck ..the cant even bring a spare cell phone battery and must often borrow someone else’s charger.

I get similar with people who want me to reload ammo for them…not happening.

The race for harder or softer lead bullets for specific applications is similar.

Sorry for the rant…but I think some get the idea.

I noted in another thread of true believers I am seeing on the extreme Left.
Again, any extremism in any form is not good, and should be avoided.
Having said that, it is those kind of extremists I can see resorting to violence and justifying it.
IF, big IF, it comes to that, the opposition will likely be as guilty as engaging in the escalation of violence.
It is a race to the bottom.

This may apply more to those of us in the upper latitudes or those in the higher elevations.
For those in the middle or upper lower latitudes, let us say a highly unusual prolonged cold front comes through.
Naturally, everyone is more than welcome to join in.

The situation: SHTF sometime in early to mid December. The snowplows quit running in late December due to the lack of fuel. For those in the middle or upper lower latitudes, apply the lack of fuel and what emergency snow removal your local has available.

It is mid-Feburary, More than a few snowstorms have passed through and another storm dropped over a foot of snow in the past twenty four hours. For those in the middle or upper lower latitudes, apply the last half of that sentence.
Side note: We recently got that much snow.

You need to get to a neighbor/location for an emergency. Medicine, cup of sugar, whatever.
It is approximately three miles away.
Mid-morning, temps in the upper teens lower twenties, with a wind chill of lower teens, but it is sunny and clear.

How do you get there?
How do you get back?
What do you take with you?
What clothing/equipment do you have for the journey?

I think, but have no real evidence, since the surprise win of Trump, and the failure of Clinton, those preppers who have been prepping since Obama, felt a sigh of relief and perhaps have taken a break.
Do something long enough,intense enough and a person can get fatigued.

On the other side, there are those who suddenly got prepper fever due to the election outcome.

I see the country even more dived than it was before.

There is a lot more hate filled rhetoric. I am reading numerous references in mainstream media to Nazi Germany, Hitler, fascists and now, brownshirts.

Is it real?
Does it matter?

The fear is there. It is visceral.

I shall continue to prep with the usual things I do every year.
But now, looking at the political, social landscape, I am now upping the prepping for some kind of social or civil unrest on a large, violent scale.
Sad to say I feel that way. I hope I am wrong.

Someone made a interesting observation the other day: Hitlers rise to power has been linked to the threat of communists, real or perceived has been debated.
I am not a WWII history buff, but what I did find on a Wiki page seemed to corroborate the idea.
So, in this day and age, if Trump is modern America’s Hitler, does that make The Left the Communists?

Having found this site a short while ago, I’d agree that with Trump folks are thinking there is no need – except the left of course who are in full panic mode. What I found interesting in the run up to the election was something David Stockman said and that was he hoped that Hillary would win because as he saw it, it didn’t matter who won, in 18 months the economy would collapse and he wanted that to happen with a Dem in charge. I suppose an EMP or cyber attack could happen, but as I see it, a total financial melt down is going to happen, sooner rather than later. My wife and I have just got started in this, I am praying that we have enough time to get a retreat built. We ain’t young and it ain’t easy, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to be a victim, not without a fight anyway.

We have a foodsaver so I’m just looking for a a bag sealer. I seal bags now by placing them on a 2×4 and running an iron over the top of them to seal them. I usually seal them about 90% of the way and then run the foodsaver accessory tube inside to suck out all of the air and then quickly seal the last corner. This works fine but sort of a PITA to have everything out like that. I’m just looking for a good sealer that will allow me to just use my iron for my clothes and keep the lumber in the basement.

Exactly what I was thinking, it’s the same thing you see every time you have a place in desert that gets a ton of water. It can’t be absorbed into the ground quickly enough so you see mudslides and flash flooding. I don’t know if this will put them back in drought conditions if they lose all of this water but I’m sure it will.

Grain and farmers in trouble.

We have already lost a lot in world grain markets because other countries are not interested in GMO crops. I posted some time back about a huge lawsuit about China rejecting grain arriving in harbors because it was GMO. Farmers sued because they had been gauranteed a market for the crop if I recall thhe details. Not seeing any news that has been settled and it started in 2013. Link about that below.

Mexico may not buy our corn if hostile policies are initiated:
http://money.cnn.com/2017/02/13/news/ec … index.html

China rejects corn crop due to unapproved GMO content, lawsuit against seed company:
http://harvestpublicmedia.org/article/c … st-farmers

Grain is a lot of work to grow without modern equipment. Can’t just plant a row of wheat. Farm economics are tied to the food we like to eat.

A friend on one of our forums obseved that milk prices, as paid to dairy farmers, have not gone up in 50 years. We are not accstomed to paying what milk is actually worth and will not like it if we are forced to either.

Lot of small farms have been lost. Looks like the ever-bigger, industrilized farming practices are in trouble now. I have posted before about how nobody wants our GMO crops and farmes often cannot even get non-GMO seeds and the products needed to grow them.

This is all interrelated and directly connected to the food on our plates. Might be time to buy some bulk grain and pack it in inert gas. Looks like a cushion against uncertainty and turmoil in grain production and markets mid-term might be a very good idea.

Might also plant a little corn. Non-GMO, bee and butterfly friendly stuff. It is a challenge to keep it from being contaminated by any GMO corn in the area.

I am watching “Accidental Courtesy”, by Independant Lens. Why are they hitting me? asks the black gentleman, Darryl Davis, as a child. “There are people who simply do not like you, for no other reason than the color of your skin.” his parents replied. “…it was incomprehensible to me.” He says now.

That child grew up to become a remarkable human being. Paraphrasing here, now he says that “If you allow someone whose views oppose your own to express those views, chances are they will return the courtesy.” He seeks out clan members and befriends them. He asks them “How can you hate me when you don’t even know me?” “Exactly what DO you belive?”

He asks them a lot of questions like “Could I join?” and then, of course, “Why not?” He talks with them about music. He finds common ground. He asks questions about their beliefs and in great detail.

He is astonishingly well aware of the small details of their beliefs. He listens. He disagrees with their viewpoint while steadfastly respecting their humanity. He announces that he considers them his friend. He maintains the friendships over years, socaizes with them.

He has a staggering collection of clan robes, given to him by these friends, when they leave the clan. Says one day he will open a museum. That it is important to claim our history. Not all of them leave. He perserveres with steadfast friendship without burdening it with expectations. He just keeps humanizing himself to them and is happy to do this.

He is changing the world. This is almost more than I can take in but I think my world view may be forever altered.

Just before the fire I had planned to invite some local business owners I have failed to communicate with, about why I do not send work to business owners who violate Equal Opportunity laws, out to lunch, just to talk and visit in a public place where I could know I was physically safe. I wonder what my little world – and yours – might look like today if our lives had not been upended, and I had tried that.

I have lately been thinking about this again. Considering if I am in good enough shape to do it well, if I have done enough of the work dealing with the astonishing chain of losses and traumas in our lives the past couple years. Wondering if there was any point, if it is worth the effort.

I FEEL what this man says about his experiences. I can sure relate. I am looking through this man’s perspective as he says “What would you say to people like me, who would say to people like you ….. Where is the place for me in this?” How well he puts it.

One who even believes hard times are ahead said “The Lord will provide”. I told her not to confuse me with the Lord.

I noticed in that Mercury News article that Cast Iron wrote that FERC was involved in making the decision to downplay the risk. If I remember correctly, FERC is the same group that has downplayed/slow-walked hardening the electrical grid against an EMP.

The state owns the dams sells water to the water to various agencies. Los Angeles Water and Power and several others. Any work needed on the dams would be charged against the price of the water. that would be raised by a tripling and charged to their customers. These companies are so bad they are being constantly sued.
