    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Selling reloads in Our Town
    Pittman/Robinson is only on new production. That is the getaround when someone supplies their own brass, it's not new production. BTW, the Pittman-Robinson Act was demanded by sportsman - we insisted on taxing ourselves. This money supports your...

    Yeah, you do, now especially that I have my 25 Krag AI barrel on it!

    I would stay away from Ben's Red for BP - look at Emmerts or the more complicated Emmerts for BP if you want to make something. I use this for BP and all my pistol/revolver loading.

    I just drop the nose in the muzzle. If the nose fits, and the shaft doesn't - I shoot it! I like the nose tight, like I actually have to lightly push it into the muzzle.

    If it turned 1/8 of a turn it was getting loose - it shouldn't turn at all.

    Only God knows those whom He has called. We evangelize because we don't know - and can't know. You appear to be struggling with the concept of the Sovereignty of God. God is sovereign - we cannot question His decisions - only use them to try to...

    It was my buttstock. Take off the small cover - two #1Phillips screws and tighten the bolt - second from the left top line on my Brownnells Magna-tip super set. Don't know what that one is - a six sided insert.

    If Holiness is the perfect hypostatic union between and within the Trinity, and did exist and was enjoyed for an eternity past, then "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabacthani"(SP - I don't have my Bible in front of me) echos down through the centuries as the...

    Many people do not want to accept double predestination. If you read Romans 9-the end you will see that it is clearly stated that God chooses who He will and thus chooses against the rest. There is no such thing logically as single predestination...

    I just pulled a bunch of my 25 Krag AI that were so tight my RCBS puller would not grab ahold of the bullet to pull it. Inertia worked.

    If my salvation was 'established before the foundations of the Earth' - before there was light and air, then all else was as well? God's view is eternal, ours is temporal. God knows winners and losers, but we have the chance to say no to Him. We...

    I get "about blank" when I click on your link. I was fireforming brass in my 25 Krag AI yesterday (Encore) and had to give it up because my stock was loose. Check that first. When it was only a little loose I could hold it in two positions - thus...

    Wow - that is an amazingly limited definition of sin. Sin is the human condition - "For all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God" and that is the best I can do and be. Isaiah, man of God and righteous - in the presence of Holiness fell...

    Start with BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil) on the stock. Get some liquid lanolin or soft lanolin or mink oil and slowly work the leather soft. Don't use anything abrasive until you know what you have, and probably not then. Pull the action out of the...

    Pull them down, save the components, and reload to your hearts content. That's what I would do with someone else's reloads unless it was Erv, my best friend, engineer, whom I taught to reload.

    Not only is it not a report, it is bad 'science'. They specifically state in two places that "all lead air concentrations were below the permissible" OSHA levels. Yet in two places they conclude that it is likely that employee lead eposure was...

    One small correction, Bazoo. You need pure lead for muzzleloader revolver balls, but this is so you don't break your loading lever. You can use harder balls for patched ball shooting.

    Aaah Yes. It is in the 'dark and terrifying valley' (our son's translation of the line in the 23rd Psalm) that we really see what we are and what God is making of us.

    I think she's talking about cartridge bulging. 40 Cal. Glock kaboom country. I think they fixed it on the Gen 3? I'm not a Glock fan, I really don't keep up.

    How long of shots will you be taking? Any chance of other game - around here now bear are almost as likely as deer in the right places. Long shots - 6.5, other game, 9.3? Gotta think about terminal ballistics and likely game.

    I have for a long time been facinated by the fact that James tells us in Ch. 5 to 'submit to God and resist the devil and he will flee from you' - but in many places it tells us to 'flee temptation'. I finally realized that nothing is tempting to...
