    Titegroup I think is the powder one seen as a culprit for reacting. It has an unusually high nitro content and if bullets are stored with Titegroup powder against bullets some grains seem to settle into the PC on the base after awhile. Turning the...

    Hell gets a lot of play in later new testament and some in the old, Jesus wasn't real big on selling hades as the outcome of not following me. Seems to me that the idea of universal salvation put forth in the new testament leaves open that being...

    Weight of bullet would I think indicate void or even oversized sprue teat. Weight may offer a quick way to sort bullets into a "high accuracy" pile. Assuming one has a digital scale suitable for bullet weighing. For the lead pushed down by a...
