PREPARATION



-
The great financial collapse may be covered over by the coming Syrian conflict which is an obvious ruse. While Conspiracy Cafe deals with the geo-political issues, we can't leave you on your own. There may be questions you have about the issues of the day. If you've been with us a long time, remember our Christmas special on surviving a nuclear calamity. If the unthinkable ever happened, you'd have to be everything. Co-operation is the key. We pray we never get to that point.

  • S&W M&P Pistol

    The Smith & Wesson M&P (Military and Police) is a polymer-framed, short recoil operated, locked breech semi-automatic pistol introduced in the summer of 2005 by the American company Smith & Wesson. It uses a Browning-type locking system. While targeted at law enforcement agencies, the M&P is also available on the commercial market

    History

    The M&P is a direct evolution of the Smith & Wesson Sigma design but does not share parts compatibility with the Sigma. The M&P design has an improved trigger and enhanced ergonomics that allow for end-user customization. An industry standard picatinny rail and a higher grip has been afforded with an improved grip and beavertail. Many of the ergonomic study elements that had been incorporated into the Sigma and the Smith & Wesson SW99 were brought over to the M&P. The improved trigger weight and feel and the unique takedown method (not requiring a dry-fire pull of the trigger) were meant to set the M&P apart from both the Sigma and the popular Glock pistols.

    Design details

    The M&P is a striker-fired semi-automatic pistol. This trigger system prevents the firearm from discharging unless the trigger is fully depressed, even if the pistol is dropped. An internal lock and/or magazine disconnect are available as options and an optional external thumb safety became available in 2009.[2]

    The pistol frame is made out of Zytel polymer reinforced with a stainless steel chassis. The slide and barrel are made out of stainless steel that after hardening is treated with a proprietary nitriding process called Melonite. The Melonite process produces a matte gray non-glare surface with a 68 Rockwell C surface hardness rating. The pistol has a very low slide profile which holds the barrel axis close to the shooter's hand and makes the M&P more comfortable to shoot by reducing muzzle rise and allowing for faster aim recovery in rapid shooting sequence. The slide has four contact points with the frame. This was done to make the rail system self cleaning, by leaving room for any dirt or small foreign objects to fall out of the weapon.[3]

    This is a lot of rifle for the money. Easy and tough to carry in the outback. It's fun to shoot, and a .22LR is easy for beginners to handle. Too bad we didn't have our own steel plate range.

    Showing and shooting the new Ruger 10-22 Take-down model. Pretty cool little firearm! I like it.

  • Introduction to Bullet Casting

    Educational Zone #102  Casting Lead Bullets  pt. 1

    I have had some friends ask me about how to go about casting lead bullets. So, today I cast some and took some pictures and thought I’d show you how it’s done.

    First, you might wonder why a person would want to go to the trouble to cast lead bullets.

    Some folks do it to save a little money, as cast bullets, if made from low-cost or free lead, are really cheap. But the main reason I do it is that I simply cannot buy exactly the bullets I want to shoot, so I cast my own. Besides, like most things gun-related, it’s fun to do.

    There is some expense to get started, as you need some basic equipment, but the more bullets you cast and shoot, the more profitable it becomes.

    Now, before we start, let me emphasize that this is the way I do it. There are many other ways to do it, but this is the way I have done it for about 40 years. And, I have sent a lot of bullets down range in that time.

    The first thing we need to be aware of is that molten lead at 700+ degrees F, can be dangerous.

    So, I always wear safety glasses, and leather gloves.


    I also wear a shop apron that I bought at Harbor Freight, in case any lead splatters on me. 

    One experience with molten lead will make you a believer. 

    My old buddy Tman was once casting bullets with shoes and no socks on, and had a sprue fall into his shoe.

    He always said that the experience was “memorable.”

    I also would warn you that lead fumes can be harmful, so I always work in a well-ventilated place.

    I usually cast bullets in my workshop.

    It has a door and window right next to the work table.


    And it also has a big door at the other end of the shop, with a floor fan that can help draw a breeze through the shop if no wind is blowing.


    The first piece of equipment I use is my electric Lyman Casting Pot. 

    You can use many types of equipment to melt the lead, but this system is one of the easiest to use.

    It has a dial on the front that allows easy regulation of the temperature of the lead, and has a draw at the bottom of the pot that allows easy mold filling.

    More on that later.


    You also need some lead. 

    If mine looks like lead corn pones, well, that’s what they are.

    We started out with wheel weights and melted them down, and removed the clips. 

    We then added some tin and antimony to harden the mixture.

    I also had a friend whose Dad was a printer in the old days, and he gave me some linotype, which was used in the printing process years ago.


    It is high in tin and antimony and is excellent to mix into the lead to harden the resulting mixture. 

    We then fluxed the mixture. This is the process of adding flux, which can be beeswax, or grease, of candle wax, or many other things to the mixture.

    This causes the undesirable elements to float to the top of the lead where they can be removed.

    We then poured the lead into the corn pone molds for ease of storage and use.

    You will also need bullet molds. Here are some of mine that I have collected over many years.


    It is important to prevent them from rusting and I do this by storing them in an ammo can with a good rubber gasket.

    I put a jar of desiccant in with them and this keeps them dry and rust free.

    You can oil them to prevent rust, but then you must clean them very carefully, as any oil will ruin the cast bullets.

    I prefer to just keep them clean and dry.

    Today I will be casting some 510 grain, gas checked .45-70 bullets from a Lyman mold.

    For a flux, I use something called Marvelux.

    As you can see from the can, it lasts many years.

    Any time I add lead to the pot, I flux the mixture.

    More later.

    I plug in the melting pot and let it get hot.

    I also have found that if I place the mold on top of the pot, it will also get hot and allow casting good bullets much quicker.

    It takes a while for the lead in the pot to melt.

    I always put it up full of lead to prevent the inside of the pot from rusting.

    As it starts to get hot, the lead will bubble up on the side first.

    When it is fully melted, I take a screwdriver full of Marvelux and put in on the lead.

    Then I use a long spoon to stir it into the lead.

    This will cause the dross to float to the top where I can remove it.

    We are now ready to start making bullets.

    You place the bullet mold under the spout and lift the handle of the pot.

    This will allow a small amount of lead to fill the mold.

    It will leave a puddle of lead on top of the mold.

    This puddle is called the sprue.

    You can watch the sprue and as it becomes clouded and cools, this tells you when the bullet is solidified and ready to remove from the mold.

    I then use a small hammer to knock the sprue cutter aside and cut off the sprue.

    I catch the sprues in a pot to add back to the melting pot every now and then.
