    No, he is in error - as a form 1 maker you would still need an SOT to repair because the ATF distinguished between a mfg and a maker!

    smoked turkey replied to a thread Salvation in Our Chapel
    I believe Wayne has said a mouthful in his post #5. The idea of "progressive sanctification" comes to my mind when we talk of the fact that being saved is a process. As stated by others, this subject is hard for us mortals to wrap our minds around....

    Very good reminder of the power of corporate prayer. Sometimes we resort to prayer after the situation has gotten bad instead of "mustering our forces" as soon as the problems start to happen. I am getting better but still need to take my own advice...

    I guess my question is are you going to use any self defense loads out of it, and if so I would try and match the profile of that bullet with my cast. My current favorite is a 230 grn TC that mimic'm the Hydroshock factory round

    My thoughts too. I originally thought that it would be easy due to the popularity of the round. Hasn't turned out that way though. They are fun to shoot. Shot my first yesterday. Thanks.

    Yes 303 or 30 WCF will work as well as 300 Savage or 308 if you want to get into 30 cal (saves a little weight) My next barrel for my swap barrel will be 35 caliber - probably 358 WCF but maybe GoodSteel's 35 XCB wildcat. Uses a post-64 push...

    Yes, if you don't have a 99 look for one as the prices just keep going up and JES can rebore a 308 to 358 for a reasonable cost.

    Artful replied to a thread 358 win in Cast Boolits
    My Savage 99 feeds 'em fine but on my Rossi 92 I had to play with OAL to get SWC to feed well. On Turn bolts sometimes you have to radius the end of the chamber a little to help feed.

    If they can keep tolerances - it's one thing to get a bullet thru 2" with loose tolerances vs 10" with tight tolerances.
