    I had some US Marine black die - I think Freibrings but I'm not sure and did exactly what you are wanting. I've forgotten how I prepped, though!

    And let him know that you have appreciated knowing him specifically, the things you have remembered that he said, the influence he has had on you.

    What is the vernacular for the Bible? "God's Word" - i.e. the Words of God. Reading and understanding the Bible is listening to God. Yes, the Holy Spirit interprets it and applies it to my life when I am willing to listen to Him.

    Strongly consider DougGuy's post. I had problems with my two 45ACP's and his work fixed both and they both chamber my boolits. Take a look at your barrel and if there is an abrupt 90 degree cut from chamber to rifling as in his first picture that...

    I know someone with her MS Engineering from Virginia Tech who is working at Scandia Labs investigating making explosives more effective. You gotta be one of the best to land a job like that.

    I hope Outpost sees this. Or you could PM him. He is retired now so some of his knowledge may be dated but he spent most of his professional life in the industry.

    Wrong focus and direction. Biblically it is God that matters, not man. It is God's design that matters, and deviations from that is sin. Mankind can and has justified just about every possible sin by seeing it from man's perspective. It's only...

    As a more general statement it is important to realize what the Bible is NOT. It is not a history text, it is not a sociology text, it is not a medical text book, it is not a study in cosmology. You can go on and on about this. What it is -...

    Best 22 cylinder protectors I've found are the yellow drywall hole expanders. Fit perfectly and that plastic will take three or four hits. I bought a box of either 50 or 100. Enough to last!

    I think you first have to plate with brass since the nickel won't adhere to steel?? This from advice not to use Hoppes or other brass dissolvers on nickel plated revolvers.

    I did not 'enter into an agreement with God' - He took me over and remade me. I went along for the ride - rowing against the flow too often. At the time it was overwhelming and for much of the time since it has been comforting. Except when I get...

    There are the same three components to many sins, including adultery, obesity, drug/EOTH abuse, etc. We are all biological sinners - driven to it by our biology. It is our responsibility to choose God over biology.

    Another misunderstanding of Scripture. It does not say the we should not judge, it says we need to be careful when we do judge. In fact the Scripture tells me in Timothy that I have a responsibility to come alongside a brother who is in sin the...

    Tim, it is. "Put no other God before me" - pride puts me before God and makes an idol of me. That's why I posted that God himself opposes me when I'm proud. That is one of his infinite ways of loving me.

    Couple of issues here. Don, sin is normal - it is universal and if defined as 'falling short of the glory of God' it is my life. As has already been so elegantly been said in this thread the Holy God cannot ignore my condition of sin. That is why...

    I just drilled a board for a ball carrier - 40 caliber. I drilled 29/64 because this holds the patched ball securely but not tightly. Patch is pillow ticking. 7/16" hole would squeeze the lube out of the patch. So, where would I find a 6"...

    What form do you want them - as cast, lubed, sized and lubed? If sized and lubed what size do you need? Will alloy matter to you - ie how soft? I have the 457122, can cast in ww metal. Can water drop if you want them harder, but I doubt you will.
