Does anyone in the area cast their own bullets? Do you have the ability to cast silver?
Just curious, but why don't you carry the silver bullet as the first round?
Cock the hammer and see where that round is then.
I run my Pro-melt at about 720 for my wheel weight + Linotype alloys. It looks like there's more gas in the thermostat by a couple of clicks. Definitely not gonna be enough to push past the 1700 or so we would need to melt silver. A cast iron pot on a propane turkey fryer might do it. Anyone ladle casting that way? How hot can you get? I gots some silvah fo some boolits too!
@Benchrest might be someone that could possibly assist you - I believe he is one of a number here that cast their own. I think he's the kind of guy that might be up for an interesting challenge.
But... It's a Rhino. The barrel is on the bottom. So it's the second round to be fired? Or the fourth? Just in case you miss the first (second/third) time?
Haha. I'm yanking chain. Sorry.
Not only that but it's held upside down with a rear facing cant.
Look who owns it... That says enough. Damn vampire wanting to kill of werewolves.
Yay! Someone caught it.
I caught it, I just didn't want to get involved.
Ain't silver a bit too hard for boolits?
I half expected this to be PP/YM posting. Musta been a full moon.
He even has a site going...
I have an oxy/acetylene torch that will melt it, "both pure oxygen (99.5%) and acetylene in proper proportions to yield a flame of about 3,480 degrees Celsius."
Would need a pot and dies though.
Edit- Looks like a plain ol plumbers propane torch will melt it as well.
Found this on wiki but it's probably nothing most folks don't already know:
I use 15% and 45% silver-solders all the time to braze-weld refrigeration lines and various components with oxy-acetylene.
This is what I use to cast all my silver bollits...isn't this what everyone still uses?
Worked 50 years ago and it still does!
Dang, that takes me back the High School Metal Shop Class!
