    Who could have predicted the events that were needed to trigger the first coming of the Christ. Here are the ones I have heard and can think of, I'm sure I am missing some: 1. Israel finally gave up idolatry 2. Israel finally took the Law...

    I don't see anywhere in the Bible that says once Jesus returns to Earth, no one else can be saved. I also don't see any end to mankind's continued procreation and the addition of more lost souls that need salvation mentioned in the Bible either.

    I do not believe God is waiting for more men to become believers. I believe God is waiting for the period when the number of believers (as a percentage) drops to a level where it is assured non-believers (and evil) will dominate the world. ...

    I was lucky and got about 10 cans of One Step when it was discontinued. More than a lifetime supply.

    Like you, I have settled in on the .223 and .308 for my rifle needs. I can still shoot full power .308, but if I ever need to dial it down, the .260 Rem would be what I would go with. Even though worrying about brass is silly at my age (500...

    Even the most modern rifle, if serviced wrong for the climate can have problems. I suspect if the rifle was serviced correctly for the climate they would not have many problems. That being said I think I agree with Kosh75287 that the expedition...

    dverna replied to a thread Hmmmm, which one in Hunting with CB's
    My choices are simple. .308 or .308. One is the snob gun.... Model 70 Coyote. One is the TC Compass. The Compass normally gets picked.

    It looks nice. I have two I use for storage of reloading and casting stuff. But, IMO, it will fail as a reloading bench if you keep it on wheels. It will need to be bolted to a wall at the very least. Not being a jerk just a realist. Do...

    I've used some Lee equipment off and on for decades. But in 2014 I got a hefty check from mom and dad. Early inheritance they called it. So I used some to buy some guns, tools, etc. I did not go all Lee, opinions varied on hand priming tools. But...

    A properly suppressed PCP air rifle does not require hearing protection. I have done a fair bit of shooting with a Daystate wearing a Donny FL moderator and a DAR that comes suppressed from the factory. Both are .22's and very pleasant to shoot....

    I like my little Howa mini-Mauser. But it is in .223. Looked at getting one in 7.62x39, but ended up with a TC Compass in .308 instead. If I want to plink with cast bullets in the .308 I can. The .308 can do what the 7.62x39 cannot do. ...

    Randy, What sets the PW's and Spolar's apart is the production rate and the ease of adding a power unit. I owned both. The PW I still have has the Autodrive, and the Spolar had the hydraulic unit. I had a MEC9000 too but hated it and sold it...

    I have bolt guns and AR's in .223/5.56. For the bolt guns, I use commercial brass with one HS. or once fired LC that has been prepped properly. For the AR's, I use whatever is cheap. Most of the cheap brass has crimped primers and the Dillon...

    Thanks for the review. Interesting gun but not at the price they want for one. Just went on Gunbroker and checked it out.

    Most people do not consider this. I am pretty good at fitting a gun, but doing it right is not cheap or easy unless you know what you are doing. The attached shows how much I had to move my comb. One valuable addition is a mid bead. If the...

    When I was working, it was the same for me. Even now that I am retired, casting and reloading are what I do to shoot and not a "pleasurable pastime". I would PC or HiTek if those methods were either faster (and that is not possible) or provided...

    I have been shooting both .444marlin and .44mag with 6.5 grains of Red Dot and 220 to 240 grain boolits to very good effect in my single shot Handi rifles. Easy on the shoulder, accurate, and pretty quiet.
