    waksupi replied to a thread Santa Fe, NM in Our Town
    I stayed at some friends hacienda a couple blocks off of Canyon Road for a few weeks. I didn't even know there was a "new" part of town until I was nearly ready to leave. I did find one interesting place, I think it is called Jackalope. I remember...

    I've had the same experience. When a business advertises as Christian owned and operated, I've learned to not do business there, because sure as shooting, they will try to screw the customer.

    longbow replied to a thread Load Data in Casting for Shotguns
    I tried using card wads for slug loads a couple of years ago. Not real successful! I had a bunch of shotcups I'd cut gas seal off and bags of nitro card wads so thought I'd try some wad slugs using the shotcups on a card wad column. I put two 12...

    I have to get out and do some more shooting myself. We've had one of the worst fire seasons ever this year and not only was the local range closed due to fire but I was reluctant to go into the bush as was so dry. Not sure why the forest wasn't...

    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Do you witness in Our Chapel
    I'm sure that many Baptists will be very surprised to see who else is in heaven - and I was raised Baptist, too. Jesus said that we will know one another by our love, how we love one another. Not by our demonination, theology, or profession.

    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Additional thought in Our Chapel
    My salvation was established before the foundations of the earth! It is God who saves, none of me. That is what the Bible teaches, Reformed theology only highlights it. Anyone who argues that salvation has to do with my decision, other than simply...

    The S&W "Victory" M&P 38/200 is a good shooter with decent service sights. NEI #169A atop 3.0 grains of Unique or 3.3 grains of Herco prompts about 700 FPS, and when they hit iron targets at 25 yards they make quite a WHOCK. The 150 grain #358477s...

    I remember the data that Skeeter Skelton published--and soon retracted--in Shooting Times. Given my experience with the 32 H&R in a Ruger SSM and a S&W Model 16-4, I thought his powder weights might get him into trouble with the liability lawyers...

    One Achille's Heel not mentioned so far concerning the Marlin 1894 examples in 44 Magnum is their rifling twist rate. For some reason, Marlin elected to use the old 44/40 WCF twist rate of 1 turn in 38 inches. This works fine with the 44/40's...

    If you limit your shots to 100yds you are good to go. Minute of dinner plate. Stretch beyond that and you want a more accurate load.

    A good reminder - It is easy to become immersed in the real issues of life here - family, babies, bills, houses, and all the reality that we must deal with daily - and maintain a God perspective in all of it is a real challenge.

The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
