We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

Did some "melting" today.
I had loads of what we call "roof-lead" (sorry, I forgot the English word for it) laying around.
It's pure lead and I use it for casting my Vetterli and Beaumont boolits.
I think it was a day well spent.

These are all the Vetterli(top) and Beaumont(bottom) boolits I have left.
Time to make some new ones.

Made all of these myself.
Some of the Vetterli boolits don't look so good, but they fly fantastic.


Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin

That looks like soft lead - it should hold the rifling well.... and be just the 'medicine' for a big feral pig! 8-) SW

Not with these Pete, but when I cast boolits using my LEE melter I always add some tin.
Makes the boolits a bit harder and easier to cast.

Met vriendelijke groet,
