    I personally have fired PC pure lead in handguns in excess of 1400 fps., never tried it in a rifle. It is the copper jacket that withstands the torque of spinup in a standard jacketed bullet, not the soft inner alloy. I think the key for PC rifle...

    I am still using the TM-902C Digital LCD Thermometer I got off Ebay for $3 back in 2012. I did have to replace the K probe I used for the casting furnace. I have since bought a couple more as well as several thermocouples so I can monitor multiple...

    A big oven is where one or more thermocouples are of great benefit. My 30" oven does a great job and I do thousands of bullets in a single cook, but you would be surprised at how long 5K bullets takes to come up to temp after the PID reaches 400...

    Evangelism was indeed derived from the Great Commission, but more than that, it derives from the necessity of getting all to know the lord. Some, like Slug, are so deeply steeped in nihlistic cynicism that they are incapable of receiving the light....

    The Bible never addressed the issue of extraterrestrial life, so if it exists, I can only conclude that the same God who created the rest of the universe also created them. Confirming extraterrestrial life wouldn't have the least effect on my...

    I'm with Ick on this matter. Sometimes, if not regularly, we read the Bible with a very limited perspective. That can often lead us to conclude erroneously, and this, I believe, is one of those times. God is perfect. Therefore, He CANNOT...

    The Lord knows every secret we try to hide in our hearts. He knows how and when we're tempted, and he knows when we give in to it. But He also provides redemption for us if we confess our sins and turn away from them, too. Truly, we worship a...

    Every gun barrel is or can be slightly different even in the same model gun. So you can just guess at what your OAL length needs to be, like most, or you can easily determine your ideal OAL for every bullet design you have and for every gun you...
