Candle Annealing

Nathan has a short video on candle annealing bullets. I tried it with the 338 caliber 225 grain SST as he demonstrated and it works well. Hopefully I'll get a chance to use the projectiles on game in the near future.

I also learned that New Zealand poly-grips are equivalent to American channel locks. Always good to know!

hi Lane
channel lock is a brand?
they are called multi's here to.
it's funny how it works like that.
an adjustable spanners have always been called a cresent to me.
i was working with a swedish plumber and i said to him the thread on his cresent was backwards, i thought he was going to thump me, i got an earful about how bahco invented the adjustable spanner and cresent stole it reversed the thread to avoid the patent or something.

look forwards to seeing your hunting results

Pass us that Shifter mate! Had me flummoxed when I first heard it in Oz. He wanted the Cresent..... Water Pump pliers was the term for the slip jaw pliers. Multi what? Do you need PPE to perform that task!

It's not a brand, it's just what we call them. I don't know the origins.
