    Lead Exposure

    With regard to dry vibratory cleaning does anyone else have concerns about the potential for airborne lead exposure? I avoid dry vibration cleaning of fired brass without first ultrasonic cleaning as primers are lead styphnate so there's the potential for a build-up of lead in the media and the dust that gets created. My vibratory polisher is in a well ventilated shed and I dump the polishing media regularly (it's dirt cheap from industrial blast-cleaning suppliers). When decanting the brass and separating it from the media quite a lot of dust can be airborne so I pop on a dust mask. I think these are sensible actions to take. For sure, people who do dry-vibration clean fired brass in their house should really think again about breathing in the dust. Any other thoughts?

    Advice on reloading please

    Possibly insufficient rinsing in clean water. Quicker drying may also help Do you live in a hard or soft water area?

    really? If you can use Excel a template is nothing to knock up. A note book is still easier

    Strelokpro problems

    Oh, of course, I'd just assumed you'd zeroed and were then having the error issue.

    SCOPE SURVEY: We need your help!

    that would be great! Especially the uber-expensive makes. We can dream

    SCOPE SURVEY: We need your help!

    Just a thought - as the turret mechanism of a scope is a precision mechanical device I wonder whether there's a marked change to accuracy between a test at, say -5C. and 35C. ? I'm pretty sure a black scope on a sunny day is going to get plenty warm.

    Well I didn't mean any insult; I used "facile" as in superficial knowledge. Isn't that true? You state an engineering principle that's wrong, you quote regs that anyone can read for themselves. From your comments you're not either a lawyer, material scientist or engineer I suspect. Superficial. Sorry you were insulted, it wasn't meant that way.

    I give up. This is tedious indeed. Judging from the posts, Mr. or Ms. simgre is clearly not a lawyer or an engineer, just a rather facile internet expert not able to "give it up". I suggest saddler's problems are exacerbated by poor communication and will resolve once fulsome explanation has been given.
