    "Peace like a river" I have been blessed and blessed again. The best part is it will tell you when you make mistakes. I know prayer works, I have seen it work for me, others in my family, and many here. You will be in mine.

    also, make sure your sprue plate swings freely, this gives the air in the mold a way to escape, and will help with the rounded edges, I just had that problem with a new noe, it was mainly with the rear cavity. some molds you can get away with having...

    Well I hear you on diminishing ability, age plays a factor, as do health issues. To be honest I shot my 1911 for the first time in 2 years last weekend. Had the neighbor boys to the range, Jean being a 14 yr Ranger with multiple tours in the...

    I started switching irons to Red Dot sights some 3 years ago. To be honest all of mine have been in the 60-65$ range. Truglo has worked the best for me. Some of those are non optic, some are 2x magnification. Which I find works really good for...

    you need to add something, like 2 stroke oil, and maybe some grease, well, I dunno if that would work for tumble lube, but you cant count on just wax to do anything but lead.

    I agree with posts # 2, 4, 5. They are my first choice all options being equal. I have yet to have a problem with them. I bought a fair amount back when they were 3.00$ per hundred. Feeling pretty good about that now. Have also used...

    I doubt my answer is definative. I have a Springfield Armory 1911, made mid 90's. No full length guide rod. Gun will shoot better than I can hold. Period. Lock it into a vice or a real good rest, fire 5 at whatever distance you like. Then...

    for elk and bear, I would go with the noe 358009 280 grainer, you could push it at 2100-2200 and I imagine it would pass through all but the biggest of bears, I think lyman no 2 would do that without heat treating, and you would benefit with a bit...

    Took my neighbor to the range 2 weeks ago, let him run 50 rounds of 9mm through the Hipoint 9mm Carbine. Ohhhhh he loved that even more than the .45acp. Till I reminded him he shot the .45acp at 25 yards, and he shot the 9mm at 20 feet. LOL...

    I actually have to do this with about 24 44 mag loads that I sized at .430, and they leaded, so I am going to use a socket or pvc pipe to pull them, and have the expander already in the press, so I can pull expand, then seat a 431 ( which does not...

    Over 1400 fps I always use a gas check. That being said I suspect a round at 1200 fps that hits the right spot is just as lethal as one moving some 4-500 fps faster.

    yep, throw the " oatmeal" back in, along with a good amount of sawdust, and some wax will help too, but watch out! it will burst into flames! I just let it burn out, that usually works good, you may have to do it twice, since you are re-introducing...
