    Be careful of some of the generic bags. Some report they do not seal well or of holes when stored and jostled. The ones made by OutOfAir have the best reviews I have seen: ...

    6bg6ga, You are wise to question your church and leaders. When something does not seem right, only a fool would not question it. Here, you have received a number of opinions. Again, I refer you to the post JBinMN shared with us. In only a...

    You will get more flyers with cast bullets due to factors that do not exist with jacketed bullets. A flyer with a good jacketed bullet may be 1/2 MOA out of the group. With cast it will be greater. Just more variables at work. Many are...

    JBinMN gave us some good reading and study material in his post where this concept is discussed in the Bible....the word of God....albeit coming from mortal men who recorded it and lesser men who after centuries translated it. But it is what we...

    OK...I must be dense. What could possibly be difficult about reloading? Yes, some procedures are a pain in the butt but none of it is difficult. I can understand not wanting to cast but not reloading makes no sense to me at all unless someone...

    I store them lubed and sized. When I need ammunition I do not want to have to lube and size bullets. Any container that works for you is fine. Here are my thoughts. I have boxes saved from buying commercial bullets and they work OK. I...

    In the book of Leviticus, 27:30, there is an interesting passage about tithing. It appears that a donor may redeem their crop tithe for its market value, plus 20%. Thus, a donor who had experienced a shortage of grain, could buy back his tithe for...

    One nice thing about having multiple presses is that I do not change out primer systems. I am a lazy SOB.

    I have owned two Clark’s built by the old man. Both were exceptionally accurate (determined by firing 50 shot groups from a Ranson Rest). I can no longer shoot Bullseye so they are gone. But they were worth every penny. There are many...

    Char-Gar, No these were not for maintenance items. It was for bigger facilities. BTW, the church has an operating budget of just over $1 million so it can cover all operating expenses. I am a recent member so cannot speak to the reserves it...

    Randy, Look at Capt's post. Think about this way. Say you had a really severely abrupt forcing cone than significantly constricted the bore. All those pellets are forced together and jammed up trying to get out. Now we know the gun would...

    Good post Charlie. You did the right thing. Do not give up on non-believers for I was one too. Sometimes God sends messages we do not want to hear...and then he may decide He needs to take a 2x4 to a manner of speaking.

    Those who do not understand why the 28 ga has a good following have never hunted with one. It about the ideal gun for hunting birds over dogs. Mine weighs about 5 lbs and is a joy to carry and shoot. For hunting, I load it with 7/8 or 1 oz...

    Hate to say this....but lengthening the forcing cone does nothing to reduce recoil. Just a great way for a gunsmith to make money. BTW, this does not imply those offering the service are crooks...most believe it to be a fact. If you think about...
