For PowerBuilder WCF client to work it needs .NET 4.0 SDK. But trouble is that this SDK is provided only for Windows 7. And trying to install it on Windows 10 gives an error. The solution I found is to uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages and only then installing SDK for .NET 4.0, then it works.
Here some notes for my reloading stuff. At the moment, I reload 9mmm Luger with Lee Pro 1000 progressive press. Probably I should write a review for this press someday as there is a lot of to say about it because this press is not for fainthearted. Anyway, that will be later, now reloading notes below.
For my 9×19 reloads I currently use:
From Vihtavouri N340 datasheet for 124gn FMJ-RN bullet, one should use from 4.5 to 5.1 grains of powder.
I have used disk .53 from Lee auto-disk powder measure that should measure 5.0 grains of N340. Actual powder amount I got with it was 4.8-4.9 grains.
Anyway, I already made and fired over 1000 rounds using this combination with no any issues.
Case – free, just have o remember to collect spent cases in range 😛
Limit-z bullet – 0,065 Eur.
One primer – 0,028 Eur.
Powder N340 – 500g 59eur, 500s is ~7700gn and it should be enough for ~1540 loads and that is approximately 0,038 Eur per load.
In total 0,065 + 0,028 + 0,038 = 0.131 Eur for reloaded cartridge.
Cost of brand new 9×19 round here is 0.24 Eur. Sometimes you can get factory reloads for 0.18 Eur.
So comparing to brand new you can benefit by 11 Eur per 100 rounds.
Off course I am not counting cost of time, fails and equipment, but hey its a hobby, so it does not count 😉
Some more photos of boxed Clone PI AVR metal detector and self made coil.
I have made a coil from Ethernet cable between two round plywood sheets filled with Makroflex sealant. More about making coil from Ethernet cable can be fount here. Idea how to seal everything came from here.
Clone PI AVR intself was boxed in a box I bought in local electronics store. I decided to add a switch to switch off external beeper so that sound will be provided only through headphone socket. For the coil connector I have selected some two pin microphone connector. I think in general it came up pretty well.
Will be mounting everything on appropriately bent and painted PVC pipe. Will post pictures later. Some day. Probably.
