    "Thy will be done, on Earth as it is heaven" When you MEAN that, have surrendered to HIS will. Then you are starting to get there. Trial and adversity come to all of us. We are all tested. It is not that GOD wants us to be miserable. But...

    As long as you cast bullets with perfect bases, then pan lubing can be difficult. Thrity cals are pretty easy, 27 cals get a little frustrating but its those darn 6.5s that will have you cursing the gods of dominos as the fall over like lemmings. I...

    Updates are very much appreciated. A part of me says that he has won the fight, he will pull through. Long and hard the recovery will be. But he has the chance. Still praying. It is very very much encouraging when you read updates to feel...

    I have shot #1 buckshot through both of my H&R 2.5 inch barreled revolvers. Actually found it worked best squished slightly then run through a .314 lee sizing die. Easy to load, grouped well enough on paper at 20 feet. So then I tried some...

    I just told my wife about this. She looked at me, and calmly said "I was just told they need to pray for peace". He is angry, frustrated and fighting inside. Nothing makes sense, nothing works and he does not understand. It is my opinion...

    My dad worked up a recipe long long ago that was awesome. 50% Ground venison. 25% Fatty beef, cheapest fattiest you can find. 25% lean pork. He used mostly trimmed boston butt's, ie shoulder roasts. His theory was that pork fat runs out of...

    I do not do this often. Frankly it scares the **** out of me. "The Holy Spirit says" (The Lord is with him) (Everyone is trying) (But the Holy Spirit is afraid he is not going to make it) That is what I was given. I hope it brings you peace....

    Not with the 150 Gr. That mold is on my list since my .270 Win is my baby. I have a lot of experience with the Lee 130gr in .270 Win. Seat a couple thousands off the lands and you will be able to find a lot of good loads. There is another thread on...

    I don't have that one but i have the .356 RF in 105 and 120 grains. They both drop .356-.357 and i lube them with a .358 die so it only lubes them and doesn't size them.

    Bisquick is my preference, I do half batch which gives me 2-3 nice big cakes. Teflon griddle if only doing a couple, tis just faster, easier, lighter. Doing a batch the cast will come out. Best of all is my 16' cast griddle with 1" sides....
