    What is the vernacular for the Bible? "God's Word" - i.e. the Words of God. Reading and understanding the Bible is listening to God. Yes, the Holy Spirit interprets it and applies it to my life when I am willing to listen to Him.

    I grew up eating and making blood sausage and blood cake. I have nothing against eating blood products, however, I do not like the taste that excessive blood imparts to the flavor of the meat. This applies to any and all meat that I consume and...

    Strongly consider DougGuy's post. I had problems with my two 45ACP's and his work fixed both and they both chamber my boolits. Take a look at your barrel and if there is an abrupt 90 degree cut from chamber to rifling as in his first picture that...

    I know someone with her MS Engineering from Virginia Tech who is working at Scandia Labs investigating making explosives more effective. You gotta be one of the best to land a job like that.

    That would be Pyrex Hoppers. They work great on Dillon's. If you can find the proper size they would work great. You need 1 1/2" OD. They don't list sizes so you would have to call them.

    I have had some formal meat processing training in my history. We were always taught the quicker and more blood that can be removed the better. This mirrors may personal experience. On a side note slitting the throat has never been the preferred...

    Wrong focus and direction. Biblically it is God that matters, not man. It is God's design that matters, and deviations from that is sin. Mankind can and has justified just about every possible sin by seeing it from man's perspective. It's only...

    When I can afford it I prefer originals. I have hunted with an original Winchester 1873 in 44-40, Trapdoor Springfield's and 1885 Highwalls. My 1892's and 1886's are Browning copies. While the Browning's are made with better tolerances and...

    True but before I had my two Waage's I used lee pots for pre-melt. I went through three Lee's with failed heating elements. My bet is my Waage pot will still be in service long after I am gone. Feeding multiple H&G 10 cavities takes lots of lead...

    Best 22 cylinder protectors I've found are the yellow drywall hole expanders. Fit perfectly and that plastic will take three or four hits. I bought a box of either 50 or 100. Enough to last!
