    No. They do not expect you to give the bad guys the first shot. But, without this kind of study, you will be judged by civilians for shooting a man who just happens to be holding a weapon that isn't pointed at you. Regardless of how many times...

    I believe you were originally looking for 357 brass? I have roughly 50, which is less than you were asking for. But also have some 30-06, 243, 30-30, 303 Brit, 270, and a handful of 8mm. (Have 308 too, but those are gold plated.) Sent from my...

    Naturally. I could write a book right now and it wouldn't magically become true after a couple thousand years. I've read the book of every major religion and I don't see why any of them has to be in conflict with what science says is true. In a...

    Can anyone explain the "science" behind Ouija board? The inability of science to fully explain a thing does not necessarily make that thing a fairy tale. Sent from my XT1710-02 using Tapatalk

    There's a regulation on how high a cable or phone line must be above a given category of public street. It's also regulated how many inches below the power line these must be. If your neighbor wants it to end, they should start with the power...

    Wet tumbled some brass and it came out a dull brownish color. Figured maybe I just hadn't cleaned up good enough after the previous batch, which had been very filthy. So, I ran them back through and they came out better but still a little off and...

    Why would creationist care about carbon dating? According to the lore, Adam was created as a full grown man, not a baby. So, why then wouldn't God create the universe "fully grown" as well? "Fully grown" would include aged things (just like...

    I think it was BNE who tested this somewhat. Cooked some lead alloy for several hours and there was no change in the tin content. The tin oxidizes faster than the lead. So, if you keep skimming the surface, you'll probably see a change. But,...

    I shot plenty of that boolit without gas checks. Just barely enough powder to reliably cycle the action. Any more than that and I could barely stay on a notebook paper at 25 yards. Could push a little faster with a check. .224 was also too...

    PC not fully cured or boolits too small. You might be pushing them a little fast as well. I think I was using about 19gns of h335 with that boolit. Maybe even 18...1:7 twist. Sent from my XT1710-02 using Tapatalk

    In a pinch, antique shops will have a few pieces that work out to $10/lb which is about what you'd pay for tin in one form or another on this forum. Once you have a little and no longer NEED to acquire tin, you'll soon find yourself paying...
