    Like I said, do you feel lucky? The Bible is the word of God because God inspired scholars, theologians and apostles to put it together. People doubt it's credibility but then they'll read the daily paper and believe it first before they believe the...

    One small issue I found is that if you have any friends, you see all their posts also unless you click on the "Just you" tab. This works fine until you click the "back" button and it goes to the combined list again.

    My experience with lee has been mostly poor. In particular the crimp dies. I bought a fcd almost 20yrs ago on a rather insistent recommendation of a Fellow Cowboy Shooter. For .44-40; it worked like garbage. I soon discovered I had a .44mag die...

    Firing several hundred rounds in a scandium frame .357Mag, seems like an exercise in masochism. I fired a M60 in .357Mag when they first came out. Actually fired 2 rounds. Never again.
