    Making lead softer was a problem for me. I get range scrap for just my labor but I have to buy pure lead. I would love it if I could capture some of the tin and antimony from my range scrap and make it softer and use that sweetener to make other...

    Agreed that is why I used the word bad instead of evil, they are bad for us, I am not completely sure that evil requires intent, can there be unintended evil. Tim

    I believe that I have a relationship with God. In my journey sometimes I learn new things. The reason I ask these questions here it to get people here to think about the things I question. Mostly I am not looking for answers I am looking to make...

    A member here posted the title as part of response. I am sure to him it is self-evident. The question is often asked, if God is all powerful and all good, why is there so much evil in the world? Funny about the ice cream and a rock part....

    I think I know better than you "what God is." God has already put in my mind the sense of what God is. I don't ask these questions for my benefit. I already know what I believe, I ask them to get readers to think about their beliefs, to open their...

    Ickisrulz, thanks for your thoughtful responses. You seem to understand the point of threads like this. When doing good you are doing God's work and when you are doing evil you are not doing God's work. Then it is possible for a human authority...

    So when something happens how do we know if it is God's work (like punishing Israel) or just Evil (like Pol Pot). Maybe I am wrong and what happened in Cambodia was the work of God. Tim

    So do these corrupt instruments have "God's authority?" Would not "God's authority" have a more even hand with punishments and not let money, politics, race or class have such a big impact in arrests, charges, plea deals and sentences? I don't...

    I consider half a pound of powder worth working up a load for. With proper precautions I expect you could develop 9mm or .357 loads for that powder as long as you don't try for max velocity just mid range loads. If you use the powder for something...

    This makes sense, God's rules first then Man's. If they conflict the go with God's rules. I don't think there was ever a ruler or government over a large population that did not oppress some part of the people. Can you name a ruler who you...

    If it was me and I had a few hundred left I would use an impact puller and pull down all the ammo and reload with the same bullets and powder but use only 8 grains, that would be like a 10% reduction. By reload I mean charge with powder and reseat...

    This one is a bit hard to accept: "Romans 13:1-4 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is...

    dtknowles replied to a thread speed? in Cast Boolits
    Yes, you still have left out many important details. Do you size to match the cylinder throat? Are your throats tighter than the barrel? Is the barrel choked at the frame? What alloy are you using?

    44 Russian was known for accuracy in its day. I assume you are talking about a pistol. I don't know that speed is the issue it could be light loads in the big case are the issue. It might be position sensitivity. I find I shoot lighter loads more...

    You think we should execute people who have not been and probably can't be convicted due to a lack of evidence. Tim

    Again you don't read the question. Some sins are certainly deserving of death but should Christians ever put a person to death. What do you think Jesus would say about Christians carrying out a death sentence?" Is the legal execution of an...
