    I keep hearing this "They Shoot Just Fine" but just because they go bang doesn't prove anything. Has anyone taken these dumped bullets and done a Ransom Rest test? Until then I will just keep standing mine up because I have a bunch of PC loads...

    That is exactly how my modified tumbler works just with a larger flat bottom. The bullets, powder and BB's roll and circulate in a rotating motion and are not pounded on top of each other. The coating is more uniform and not as fragile as those...

    My brother bought one, (16" Oracle Model) and after he let me shoot it, I bought one. With plain-jane Remington factory .308 150gr Corelokt ammo, a 3-9x Burris scope, it will keep 3 shots in 1.5" @ 100 yards with boring monotony. Handloads with IMR...

    I tried using 3 different vibrator tumblers and had the same problem, too aggressive. Tumbling the bullets where they are tossed around in a container didn't work for me either. My bucket tumblers work and do an excellent job coating hundreds of...

    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...

    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...

    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...
