1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I have an unopened 5# keg of Hercules Blue Dot (cardboard canister) and an opened keg of Alliant Blue Dot (plastic container) that has roughly 3# left per the scale- including the keg.

    I'll take $80 for both kegs. I am North and East of Pittsburgh for exchange. Pm if interested.

    Blue dot would be more appropriate for booming Annie Oakley loads or hunting loads in 1 1/4 oz and up (AA Hull, Win 209 Primer, WAA12R Wad, 37.5gr Blue Dot gives 1375 fps at 10,300 psi according to Alliant Website). However I use it for magnum pistol i.e. 10mm, 357, .38 Super. In mag pistol it gives good consistent velocity in the higher end (under max) pressure with a clean burn. It also meters very well for me out of a Lee standard powder measure.

    Mike,

    I do shoot Red Dot up front in the colder temps. Where are you located?

    James is right, it can be used for heavy field or booming Annie loads- or for pistol loads. I would hang onto it for pistols, but I have a 12# keg of 7625 and 4 or 5# of Unique to use.

    Ken

    Blue dot makes good handgun in the moderately heavy range...with little white flash, more of a red blaze.

    Follow manufacturer's instructions, of course.
