    I feel that will be rifle dependent. In my 260 Rem it has an 1 in 8 twist and I really havent been able to get over 1500 fps with any powder. 5744 at 1500 fps works the best. I have tried all sorts of alloys. I settled on 50/50 RS to COWW for BHN...

    Well I have been getting text updates all morning. Into Operating room, proceedure started, little over an hour later it was moved into post op/recovery, then into recovery/discharge. Then a voice mail warning that I would be getting a call within...

    Well I just delivered Cindy to the hospital and checked her in for surgery. Her surgeon has been doing this exact thing for 25 years. So I feel like she is in good hands. I cant be with her so I came home to drink coffee and spread the word. ...

    White is power, black is ground, green is earth ground. Earth ground goes any where on the case to ground out the metal frame of the pot. It's just an added layer of safety so if your pot shorts it trips your breaker. Instead of knock you out of...

    There was an actually article buried in here about that or maybe it's on Art and Science of Bullet Casting. Those are essentially the basic categories. It has to do with polymerization and cross linking of the molecules. Cheaper ones like the...

    Owe, I love 6.8m rounds. Curious how this works out for you. I shoot the .270 Win. Was eye balling the 280 or 260 Rem... well went with .260 Rem. Think you would do well with 5744 or Reloader 7.

    Yes and no. Well probably, it's one of those "each person has their own unique experience and opinion" kind of situations. If you want to keep this simple and easy as possible use a pencil lead or your thumb nail. It doesnt take fancy expensive...

    The way I look at it. It cost about a dollar a pound of lead from most vendors to buy ingots. That's without shipping. So as long as I can source it for cheaper than a buck a pound. I made money. Most often it cost me time, labor, propane and 20...

    Gee whiz. I hope he recovers fully. IIRC, he's in his 80's. He certainly did some fine gunsmithing, too. I still remember his Kentucky rifle he carved from scratch. And he reported his own personal TESTS, and not just opinion, repeated...

    Amen! Some of the finest Christians started out as devout atheists. C. S. Lewis is but a single example. Maybe Slug will find the Truth one day, or maybe it'll find him. I certainly hope so. He's a congenial sort, or so it seems. He'd be...

    Good point No. 1. I didn't mean to instigate dissension here. I only intended for us all to think, myself included, before posting. There are those here who see any comment that states an honest opinion, that counters their own beliefs, is an...

    Nope, but I can see how you'd see it that way. I have never put myself above or beyond anyone. Just defending my own personal beliefs. That's all. Why would you not expect that from those who think differently from you??? Your collection of...

    Again, this is a question that really has no answer. We can believe what we will, but no real answer is available that will stand up to real scrutiny. But then again, this belief may well be a stepping stone to a higher understanding, not only of...

    I get it 50% to 30% lead from a bucket of lead. Sometimes it will take me months to scrounge a source. When I do I will bleed them of everything I can get. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    I don't think I'm alone in noting that many of the questions we all hear in discussions of theology are flawed and unanswerable. This is what deniers dote on! They try to convolute every belief we have as Christians, tangle our concepts up and...

    You know, in reviewing this thread, it comes to me that this is one of those unanswerable questions because the question itself is flawed. It ASSUMES that God DID create evil, which I believe to be a denial of all that God truly is. God is light,...

    Nope. Not at all. Your grandiose view of yourself and your "opinions" is glaring. You make a statement, and THEN expect nobody to counter it, and that everyone should meekly accept your word as the "last word," and the absolute truth? My,...

    Dverna, I sincerely don't mean to put you or your rasoning down, but to me, this is the kind of question that's akin to "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin." The only real answer to it is "We don't know." We are often too reluctant to...
