    You are missing nothing. Like lead, dead soft brass has very little, if any, spring back. However, if cartridge brass didn't have elastic spring back it wouldn't have any grip at all after the necks are forced to expand when bullets are seated,...

    Few Christians, even few educated ministers, actually understand the difference between the spiritual "Son of God" and Jesus' own description of himself as "the son of man". When the time came, the Son of God set aside his Godhood and took on...

    I will only use Lee, RCBS, Dillon, Hornady-Pacific, Lyman, MEC, Herters, Redding, and Bonanza tools, right now. I use all of them. I use my Lee Classic Turret press the most. I use whatever mixed(add a Lee powder thru expander, and FCD) die set I...

    Only if "other" gods exist (they don't) AND if those gods have heavens of their own making (they don't) then an argument could be made that our God's way is only one of many ways. Until then, we are wise to recognise that Jesus is the only way into...

    Okay, the Anniversary package included the "Challenger" press. It was/is a die cast aluminum alloy press of surprising strength. Seems the primary weak point was the two-piece toggle block; IF the user allowed the bolt joining the toggle halves to...

    Wonder which Lee press that was. Back in the 1990s I got two of Lee's tiny "Reloader" presses for special tasks and, just for laffs, tested the press spring while FL sizing a lot of mil surp .30-06. Blew my socks off, neither of the little...

    First, words matter but Peter, Paul and John didn't speak in Shakesperian English so the words MUST be changed or we couldn't understand the Bible at all. Next, other languages have such different sentence structures that we couldn't grasp the...

    Tim, you casually raise deep questions of Christian doctrine that you know little of and obviously understand less. God knows all things and always has, he didn't need to sit around for any of us to be born so he would know who was/is...

    Ah, goodness. Now you posit a "fact" that is not in question, I don't know why but it looks like a dodge. To get back on point, we are speaking of the evidence for trusting a good God, no one's challenging you 'bout how some bad men sometimes...

    I don't know where that idea got started but accusations of "blind faith" is a common idea amongst "intellectual" agnostics and atheists but it's not true, not even close. "Faith in God" simply means we trust God for both for things we can see...

    I don't have a Crusher, never did, but I've used one and don't remember if it "cammed over" or not because I adjust my dies by what they do to the cases so camming doesn't make any difference to me. My first press was a Lyman Spar-T, a six hole...

    The functioning lube ingredient in Imperial is carnauba wax, the rest of it is softeners. It's clean to use and doesn't need to be removed. A can of Kiwi shoe polish (neutral) works as well but needs softeners, or use SnoPruff boot treatment which...

    Metal fatigue can get to anything eventually. Your repair is obviously good and simple enough to do. My first press ('65) was a Lyman Spar-T with a neat brass tube autopriming system that worked very well (still does). BUT, in '92 finally...

    No more truthful words have ever been spoken. ALL presses flex, it's just a matter of degree. Those who engineer presses design them so the flex is well below anything that would affect accuracy. The worst "spring/flex" we have to deal with is our...

    Quote, or at least cite references, I must. Thing is, the label says this is a "deep theology" forum; by definition theology is a study of God's words; that requires scripture. Theology is not a sharing of our deeply held human heart and soul...

    Well Mitty, I just scanned Mt. 24 and Luke 21 to refresh my memory. The Roman murders and destruction of both Jerusalem and Herod's temple in 70 AD were devastating to the Jews but I don't see how/where you find that Jesus "returned" then. ???

    That seems to put emphasis in the wrong place but, effectively, it's true; once SAVED - born again in spirit - we are always saved. Thing is, not everyone who claims to be saved really is (Matt 7:21-24). Okay, Wolfe, I wonder, did you read...
