    I picked up a Savage 12 FV from Cabela's several months ago on sale. It's a 26" heavy barrel with accutrigger. All said and done it was $219 out the door. I put it into a Boyd's Pro Varmint stock, 20moa base, 10x SWFA scope with mil reticle and mil...

    I have a pound of it and thought about trying it. I have had good luck with IMR 4831 and RL15 for higher velocity .308 cast loads.

    Blackwater replied to a thread Guide me in Our Chapel
    I think God's always guiding us. It's us who don't always realize that He's doing it, and sometimes when we get "down," we may not simply have faith that He really cares for us as individuals. I have had MANY instances where I've been VERY...

    Thanks for the updates, Bazoo. It's always good to know what happens to those we pray for. God doens't always say "Yes" to our requests. He has his reasons for whatever He does, and always has our best interests (long term) at heart, though, even...

    It seems pretty certain and unarguable that demons do in fact exist, for very reliable reports have come from too many places and people who have seen levitations, and other supernatural things in the possessed. The Catholic church is, I think THE...

    Personally, I think this is one of those "idjit questions" - a question without a real (mortal) answer. A man locally had worked tooth and nail for many years to build up a really good business, and found out he had a type of cancer that would be...

    Real men DO cry. We just don't make a big deal out of it. We know we're mortal, and will soon pass, so we don't get hung up on things that are "artificial" like "ego" and "pride." We just do whatever is fitting to do, without explanation or...

    I'm not sure where you get that comparison to the tyrants of the past, but you're entitled to believe as you wish, of course. Nowhere have I seen anything except a pragmatist in Trump. He's got enough pure political guts to use God and the Lord's...

    This is an interesting, and in some ways, challenging, passage. Does it mean that we can own our things and love our family, provided NOTHING therein supercedes our love of Christ? This has long been my take on it, for I do not think Christ ever...

    Hang in there, Goat! Nothing succeeds like determination and pure ol' "never give up" attitudes! A man without a goal isn't much of a man. As we get older, these goals get simpler, and more elemental. I wake up every morning just thankful for...

    If anyone enters your home and is offended or thinks the axe is "inappropriate," kick them out IMMEDIATELY! And never let them in again. Life's too short to waste on folks like that!

    Thanks, Ronnie. Great lesson. An awful lot of folks pay lip service to the Lord, but ask them to actually DO something for Him, and they very often balk. However, if you can get them to do one little thing, they can often (sometimes?) become a...
