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.

    Educational Zone #102 Casting Lead Bullets pt. 1

    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.

  • 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.

    37 3 "The Fight Ahead" November 6, 2013

    Prepper Chad believes that a nuclear strike resulting in a genocidal siege is a real possibility. At his home in Arizona, he is working on executing the biggest prep of his life — a 140-foot-long escape tunnel from his family's house to a bug-out vehicle. With the help of his wife and daughter, he begins construction — but as the project unfolds, they realize they're in over their heads.

    I feel you would need a whole lot more coverage on your armored all terrain tank. In the past construction equipment was used. John Wayne's The Fighting Seabees shows us how they fought the Japanese in WWII. I'm also a proponent of the CUWV (Civilian Urban Warfare Vehicle) an armored vehicle made from a forklift. Every town and city has forklifts.

    ADP - ARMORED DEPLOYMENT PLATFORM

     

    One of the Rook's very strategic attachments is the Armored Deployment Platform.  The custom built NIJ Level IV platform includes sloping partial roof cover, and floor-to-roof front shield consisting of sliding center door and batwing doors on the outer edges, plus independent power for two Go Lights.  The ADP provides room for up to five fully-dressed officers and is equipped with four locking gun ports, four bullet proof glass sight ports, and video cameras attached to the front of the platform with video feed to the equipment operator.


    The armored bulldozer is a basic tool of combat engineering. These combat engineering vehicles combine the earth moving capabilities of the bulldozer with armor which protects the vehicle and its operator in or near combat. Most are civilian bulldozers modified by addition of vehicle armor/military equipment, but some are tanks stripped of armament and fitted with a dozer blade. Some tanks have bulldozer blades while retaining their armament, but this does not make them armored bulldozers as such, because combat remains the primary role — earth moving is a secondary task.

  • K98 Mauser German WWII Rifle
    by George Freund on October 14, 2014 at 6:28 PM
    4552 Views - 0 Comments


    The Karabiner 98 Kurz (often abbreviated Kar98k, K98, or K98k) is a bolt action rifle chambered for the 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridge that was adopted in 1935 as the standard service rifle by the German Wehrmacht. It was one of the final developments in the long line of Mauser military rifles. Although supplemented by semi- and fully automatic rifles during World War II, it remained the primary German service rifle until the end of World War II in 1945. Millions were captured by the Soviets at the conclusion of World War II and were widely distributed as military aid. The Karabiner 98k therefore continues to appear in conflicts across the world as they are taken out of storage during times of strife.

    History

    The Karabiner 98k was derived from earlier rifles, namely the Mauser Standardmodell and the Karabiner 98b, which in turn had both been developed from the Gewehr 98. Since the Karabiner 98k rifle was shorter than the earlier Karabiner 98b (the 98b was a carbine in name only, a version of Gewehr 98 long rifle with upgraded sights), it was given the designation Karabiner 98 Kurz, meaning "Carbine 98 Short". Just like its predecessor, the rifle was noted for its reliability, great accuracy and an effective range of up to 500 metres (550 yd) with iron sights and 1,000 metres (1,090 yd) with an 8× telescopic sight.

    Features

    The Karabiner 98k is a controlled-feed bolt-action rifle based on the Mauser M 98 system. Its internal magazine could be loaded with five 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridges from a stripper clip or one-by-one. The straight bolt handle found on the Gewehr 98 bolt was replaced by a turned-down bolt handle on the Karabiner 98k. This change made it easier to rapidly operate the bolt, reduced the amount the handle projected beyond the receiver, and enabled mounting of aiming optics directly above the receiver on the Karabiner 98k. Each rifle was furnished with a short length of cleaning rod, fitted through the bayonet stud. The joined rods from 3 rifles provided one full-length cleaning rod.


    The metal parts of the rifle were blued, a process in which steel is partially protected against rust by a layer of magnetite (Fe3O4). Such a thin black oxide layer provides minimal protection against rust or corrosion, unless also treated with a water-displacing oil to reduce wetting and galvanic corrosion. From 1944 onwards phosphating/Parkerizing was introduced as a more effective metal surface treatment.

    Sights

    Originally the Karabiner 98k iron sight line had an open post type front sight, and a tangent-type rear sight with a V-shaped rear notch. From 1939 onwards the post front sight was hooded to reduce glare under unfavourable light conditions and add protection for the post. These standard sight lines consisted of somewhat coarse aiming elements making it suitable for rough field handling, aiming at distant area fire targets and low light usage, but less suitable for precise aiming at distant or small point targets. The rear tangent sight was graduated for 1935 pattern 7.92×57mm IS cartridges from 100 m to 2000 m in 100 m increments. These cartridges were loaded with 12.8 g (197 gr) sS (schweres Spitzgeschoß – "heavy pointed bullet") ball bullets.

    Stock

    Early Karabiner 98k rifles had walnut wood one-piece stocks. From 1938 onwards the rifles had laminated stocks, the result of trials that had stretched through the 1930s. Plywood laminates are stronger and resisted warping better than the conventional one-piece patterns, did not require lengthy maturing, and were cheaper. The laminated stocks were, due to their dense composite structure, somewhat heavier compared to one-piece stocks. In addition to the use of walnut and beech laminate, elm was used in small quantities. The butts of the semi-pistol grip Karabiner 98k stocks were not uniform. Until early 1940 the stocks had a flat buttplate. After 1940 some stocks had a cupped buttplate. All stocks had a steel buttplate.

    Tim has an accident in the desert shooting himself through the thumb. I can never stress enough to always practice firearms safety. Treat all firearms as loaded and pointed in a safe direction. This is more so in a disaster scenario because there may not be the medical system we depend on. An injury such as this would dehabilitate you and possibly even result in death through blood loss or infection. BE SAFE! Your life depends on it.

    All the firearms designed By John Browning were revolutionary in effectiveness, durability, and simplicity. This was a classic. You can't go wrong with this as your staple pistol. Remember your safety rules. Treat every firearm as loaded. Never point it at anything you're not going to shoot. Keep your finger off the trigger. It's great history. It's great sport. Norinco makes a replica based on the original. It's a bit of value on a budget. Always pull back the slide to clear any round in the chamber on a semi automatic firearm. Removing the magazine isn't enough. Where you have the right to self defence this is a fight stopper. Have fun.


    The M1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge, which served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1985. It was first used in later stages of the Philippine-American War, and was widely used in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The M1911 is still carried by some U.S. forces. Its formal designation as of 1940 was Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 for the original Model of 1911 or Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911A1 for the M1911A1, adopted in 1924. The designation changed to Pistol, Caliber .45, Automatic, M1911A1 in the Vietnam era. In total, the United States procured around 2.7 million M1911 and M1911A1 pistols in military contracts during its service life. The M1911 was replaced by the 9mm Beretta M9 pistol as the standard U.S. sidearm in the early 1990s, but due to its popularity among users, it has not been completely phased out. Modernized derivative variants of the M1911 are still in use by some units of the U.S. Army Special Forces, the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.


    Designed by John Browning, the M1911 is the best-known of his designs to use the short recoil principle in its basic design. The pistol was widely copied, and this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. It is popular with civilian shooters in competitive events such as USPSA, IDPA, International Practical Shooting Confederation, and Bullseye shooting. Compact variants are popular civilian concealed carry weapons, because of the design's inherent slim width and the power of the .45 ACP cartridge.
