    Going to bring this seven year old thread back to life. I have a Lipsey's Ruger Blackhawk 45 convertible with a 3 3/4" barrel on the way. I have the Lee 300rnpf mold that after PC and .452" sizing weighs 306gr. I'm looking for load data with powders...

    Each gun is different. You'll just have to figure that out with the bullet you want to shoot.

    It is amazing to me how some folks twist and contort their thinking in order to believe that Christ was NOT the savior, whom He claimed to be. It's also amazing how some folks twist and contort the scriptures to conform to their concepts and ideas,...

    Lord, our nation is at a crossroads. Either we are going to turn back to you, or we will turn away, and be led to perdition and slavery and misery and pain. Lord, forbid that we could be so foolish and self-centered as to choose that latter...

    It can't just be me. Have you noticed how commonly we strain at gnats, while logs are firmly lodged in our eyes??? Why do we do this? All I've been able to come up with is that somewhere inside us, we DON'T really want to know the undiluted,...

    Lord, please be with Wally, and let him be healed. It doesn't matter how you choose to do this, just that you leave him here to help Preacher Jim in his ministry, and that you give him an experience that will be useful as an example for those who...

    I hate to admit it, but the simple truth is that I'm pretty hard soil, that has had to be plowed and disced many times over to get me soft enough to grow good seed. I've been stuck on doing things MY way, rather than His, and this has led me down...

    All I know is that when my father died, my first mental vision of him was him wearing some old jeans, rolled up to the knees, a nondescript short sleeve shirt, an old straw hat with the rim bindings partly gone, and some frazzeling around the edges,...

    It seems that the hardest thing for us humans to do, is to keep our perspective adjusted to where it needs to be. So very, very much is lost, from simply not keeping the right perspective. We see everything, practically, through the prism of our...

    You know, it's kind'a funny how when we think of the "cost" of walking with God, we always view the question through the prism of our own wills, rather than looking at all the wondrous benefits of having a loving God by our side, helping see us...

    The problem with shooting lubbed bullets in a Glock is the polygonal rifling builds up a lead coating at a much faster rate. Not true. A cast bullet that properly fits the chamber of said gun will not lead the barrel when a quality lube is used.

    Depends. Random plinking pistol bullets I'd size and lube the same day. High velocity rifle bullets cast of 90/6/4 and water dropped sit for at least a month to achieve full hardness.

    Excellent post, and most relevant to all of us today. And furthermore, the main prerequisite to submitting to the Lord and His instructions and advice, is to simply be humble - not "mousey," but humble. When we've humbled ourselves before the...
