Re: Keel cutter, this is sick!

I don't see anything sick about using a chain saw. That is further supported by Downeast450's post as well as others. It's pretty difficult to get a full keel to fit into a bullet making melt pot.

It's actually a really good idea for folks that cast bullets and reload, I never would have thought of it.

I can see it now, keel sculptures made with chain saws. Instead of regattas we can have sculpture showings with everyone in scuba gear. Also a whole new sailing activity for the snow bound.

Becoming a good enough marksman to kill one with one bullet certainly takes a lot more of them.

Plus, a lot of us like to shoot guns for fun they way other people like to take illegal drugs for fun.

Yes, but staying in practice so you you can kill your deer with one shot takes a lot more than one bullet. If you have your own range, you can salvage the lead bullets, clean the lead and use it again.

Also, due to present political issues, there is nation wide shortage of reloading components right now, including bullets. If you want to practice, so you can get your "deer" with one bullet, using salvage lead and casting or swaging your own bullets can save a LOT of money.

Several years ago, (more than 20), I saw this done exactly the same way. This is not a new method. The debris from the cutting is fairly large and not likely to be powdered and spread beyond the area where the work is done. It worked then and obviously, it works now. Keep the saw sharp, don't get in a hurry, use plenty of bar oil and use the proper PPE.

Two good reasons to cut up the massive chunk of lead:

1. It is too heavy to move without special equipment if left in one piece.

2. The typical lead pot used for casting bullets holds no more than 20 lbs, and the pieces usually have to be smaller than 2 pounds to fit into the pot.

Have FUN!

But getting accurate enough to hit them takes hundreds or even thousands.

And often it takes more than one to kill a deer.

Didn't George Washington used an ax to do the same thing?
