    Lead ingots

    Are these ingots 100% pure lead, or do they have some tin/antimony mixed in?

    Hodgdon Retumbo & 4831 SC Powders For Sale

    SPF to jgraffaz
  4. I have three 1 pound bottles of esch for sale. When these powders came up for sale, I jumped on them because they can be hard to find. I bought them mostly for other members here on CWT. The price is exactly what I paid for them. I use both of these powders, so if they don't sell, I will just keep them. Since the price is what I have in them, I am not willing to lose money by driving to meet somewhere in the middle. I ask for your understanding on this matter. I live in the N. Scottsdale area - cross streets: N. 101 Loop and 56th Street. Retumbo is $62.50 per pound 4831 SC is $55.00 per pound. As always, CWT members get first shot at anything I sell before posting on different websites/boards. The first "I'll take it" in the thread trumps any PM's or text message. I like everything out in the open for all to see. No back door deals. For questions, you can post in the thread or send me a PM.

    WTS: Custom Rifle in 6.5-06 AI

    Up for sale is one of my favorite rigs. This custon rifle was built by well-known gunsmith Kirby Allen out of Montana. You can check out his website here: https://apsrifles.com . Custom components for this build along with current prices are as follows: Action: Lawton 7000 Repeater (Rem 700 La footprint) -blueprinted by Kirby (No longer available, but paid $875 nearly 13 years ago) Base: Lawton 20 MOA Rail (No longer available, but paid $100 nearly 13 years ago) Bolt: Fluted by LongRiflesInc. $50 Barrel: Lilja Match SS in #4 contour. Finished at 26" with 1 in 8" twist $380 Brake: Defensive Edge by Shawn Carlock (indexed) $80 Gunsmithing Work: Chamber in 6.5-06 AI, thread barrel tennon, thread muzzle, index brake & blueprint action $600 Stock: Manners Ultralight Carbon Hunter $780 (now known as EH Series) Trigger: Huber Concepts 2-Stage set at 1 lb. $300 Paint: Five Color Cerakote in Kryptek camo $250 Bottom metal: Std. Rem 700 BDL $75 If my math is right, I have nearly $3,500 of top quality parts & labor in this build (excluding tax & shipping costs). Also included with the sale of the rifle: a set of Redding 6.5-06 AI dies and approx. 150 of 2-x fired 6.5-06 AI Winchester brass fully fire-formed from 270 Win brass. Probably another $225 in value right there. (The Atlas bipod shown in the picture is not included in the sale.) Although not included in the sale, I do have approx. 300 count of the 6.5mm 130 gr. Accubond bullets and a couple pounds of H 4831 SC that could also be purchased to help you get started. And no - I am not interested in selling the bullets or powder separately at this time. The rifle weighs 8 lbs. as is. It shoots in the .5-.75 MOA range when you do your part. It loves both the 130 gr. Accubond (3,050 fps) - very mild load and the 160 gr Matrix bullets (3,075 fps) - very stout load. It has a documented 1,136 rounds down the barrel (including all load development and fouling rounds). This rifle has taken everything from coyotes to elk. The stock has some paint chips from normal field use, but no dents or dings in the carbon shell itself. If you do not want the 2-stage trigger, I would be happy to reduce the price by $200 and keep it. Price is: $2,250 As always, CWT members get first shot at anything I sell before posting on different websites/boards. The first "I'll take it" in the thread trumps any PM's or text message.

    Caldwell lead sled $40

    Typically, I will instruct potential buyers to text or use CWT's PM for questions, with the understanding that if someone else posts "I'll take it" in the thread before them- they lose out. That is simply the risk you run. Early on, I had a few members PM me with a commitment to buy - only to stall me for several days before backing out or trying to negotiate a different price. By that point, I had already posted a SPF in the thread which discouraged other potential buyers from stepping up. I like to have members on record where everyone can see what is going on and who is potentially dealing in bad faith or playing fast and loose with member's good will.

    Caldwell lead sled $40

    This is why I am an advocate for posting sales comments in the thread. There have been several times where I have responded quickly to an item only to be met with silence and then nothing - or "it's been sold" comment much later when I push things to find out where I stand. It can sometimes give you the feeling that another deal was done behind your back - whether for more $ or item was rerouted to a buddy once seller found out he wanted it. Posting "I take it" in the thread seems to be the most transparent way of letting everyone know where they stand.
  11. I have had good luck with Wipeout (let it soak for a few hours each time) or GM Engine Cleaner.

    Sig Sauer Romeo Zero

    Trying to figure out which model of RomeoZero sight this is. Did it come off a P365 or the P365XL? Does it have the 2MOA, 3MOA or 6MOA red dot?

    WTB Hodgdon H110

    Understood. I'm sure you will be able to find what you are looking for in the east valley. But for future reference, go check out Hodgdon's Reload Data Center. You will see Lil Gun listed next to H110 for both subsonic and supersonic hand loads. Early devotees used H110 powder back when the 300 BO was still known as the 300 Whisper. Most of us eventually gravitated to Lil Gun because it gave us a better fill rate while providing a lower ES. Lil Gun also gave us lower pressures with better velocity in our supersonic loads.
