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.

    Everytime shot goes up, this issue comes up. Do a search, there are many many threads on this subject.

    As lead will start to go down don't stop making shot. The more you make the better you get. Also those dang distributors jack the price up so high that everyone belives lead is high. Most places I still get my lead free. What I do make I can't tell the difference in the preformance. B12

    That's a small bucket, It only holds about 70 lbs. I learned real quick when working with lead use very small containers.

    The lead is either wheel weights or reclaimed shot. Right now I have 15 5gal buckets of reclaim to melt and clean up.
