    Just one fine point... Romans 8:28 does not say God controls all our circumstances. It says he works through and within our circumstances to benefit us. Our circumstances are largely controlled by our own decisions and actions. Added to...

    Sounds like the pop is trapped air escaping and the hard pull is due to air being compressed between the bullet base and the gas check. I would clean the die inside and out, plus anything else that has old lube on it. If that doesn't work trying...

    There are tons of sources on the internet that explain how to use the AR iron sights. Why waste money on printed materials? I wouldn't refer to AR15/M16 sights as "basic." They are fantastic sights.

    Ickisrulz replied to a thread TV repairs in Our Town
    Whether a person sees an improvement of 4K over 1080p is dependent on how close they set to the TV. I have 4K TV, 4K Blu-ray player and 4K movies. There is no difference over plain old Blu-ray unless you sit fairly close to the TV. Most people...

    I was not there and I don't have a clue as to what happened, however, a 30:1 405 grain bullet at Trapdoor velocities is not going to blow up on a doe's shoulder.

    I applaud your search for a moderate 357 Mag load. There is no reason to stress these K frames Smith, unless their is a real need to do so. I favor a 150 grain full wadcutter over either 5/Bullseye, 10/2400 or 7.5/AA5. This will all produce...

    5 grains of Bulleye under such a bullet was arsenal and factory load for billions of rounds and several generations. It still works.

    At my last church (St.Luke's UMC, Corpus Christi TX) I told folks I was a cast iron nut. Folks started to go into their garages etc. and bring me all their rusty cast iron. They quite using it because it became to heavy. I cleaned and reseasoned...

    Char-Gar replied to a thread Cast iron skillets in Our Town
    I am taking that as a serious question. Cast iron cooks better because of even heating and heat retention in the iron. Food cooked in cast iron also seems to taste better. You can cook on anything, including an old metal drum lid (I have done...

    When steel first came out lots of people reloaded it using standard shotcups. The shot would push thru the pedals and leave grooves starting at the forcing cone. On the ones I have seen it was worse at the chamber end.

    About 4 months ago, I bought an NIBLayman AA turrent press on Ebay for $80.00 shipped. Yep this was a whale of a deal, but they can be found. That brings me up to three of these great smooth presses.

    I have used micro fine graphite to lube case necks since 1958. Stick the case neck in a little tin of the stuff and it lubes both the outside and inside of the neck.

    I would agree with that. However, if pressed to do so, I could load any handgun round with Bulleye. When Bullseye became available again, I laid in 16 prounds to go with the 4 pounds I had left.
