This has never been about anything Trump did, it's been about the fact that the Democrats are not in power.

I wish I could have said it as plain as you did. Hasbeen


Indeed, the longer they stall, the more irrefutable evidence will accumulate that Trump is guilty and should be removed. Best to eject this as fast as possible and then redirect attention elsewhere. Maybe another attack on Iraq/Iran or some such. Anything to put this in the rear view mirror ASAP.

The GOP can only lose the longer this game goes on....

How would that be a problem?


Church would get real crowded.


Which church? Simply proving a God or even creation doesn't change too much, many people already beleive in at least some sort of higher power. People tend to assume that proving a God means proving their particular version of God, which it doesn't do. .



How do you know what "proving a God" entails? What are you basing that particular opinion on?...

I posted this earlier today on the 'Campfire, and it fell off the front page. I'll try here.

In honor of Virginia's Governor, Ralph Northam, I've decided to put together a .223 Semi-Auto project. Part of it involved trolling the lake bottom for all those rifles y'all say got lost in a boating accident. With that part complete, I'm now getting on to the next step: ammunition.

The goals of Project Ralph are as follows:

1) Put together a well-regulated semi-auto rifle for the well-regulated post-militia-aged fatman (me). It should be as handy and serviceable as said fatman's M1 Garand, but updated to modern contingencies.
2) Assemble a reasonable stash of 223 Rem/556 NATO ammo that shoots well out of #1
3) Have it all stashed away and forgotten until somebody says I need to hand it over for the good of Society.

As I said, step #1 is complete. I'm now onto the second part of the challenge. For this, I would like to ask for the help of the Campfire.

1) I have a progressive reloader that is set up to load 223 REM.
2) I have some, but not all of the components at hand

Given all that, I have a bunch of questions:

1) Help me define "reasonable stash." I'm figuring 500 rounds ought to be sufficient. I've got more. I'll get more. This is just a first step. By the time I use up 500 rounds, I'll either have made my point or be dead.

2) Purchase or mfg? I see cheap steel-cased blasting ammo for $120/500 right now.

3) FMJ or. . ? To me, FMJ is not necessarily the way I want to go. It's fine for punching paper, and taking on nation states while holding to the Hague Convention, but I'm not thinking of either right now. I'm looking for suggestions. I'm currently leaning towards a 62 grain SP load. It would be enough to take on all manner of vermin, 2-legged or 4. However, there are a lot of good deals out there on 55 grain FMJ.

4) Steel or brass? If I buy ammo, should I figure on reloading brass cases or shooting disposables?


I've got 5 30-round magazines on order along with a pile of stripper clips. My goal is to load everything up, stick it in a bag with a shoulder strap and then seal it all up and wait for a bright shiny day....

My little wife likes to look in on the Grammy's, and we "tried". I could not keep up with the Rap Adoration....I put it in the same category as "Scat Jazz" ( or 98% of all Jazz to me! ha) I was embarrassed for Steve Tyler...poor guy is lost in the '70s. While I am also not a real big C&W fan ( I don't know what they call this new stuff C&W) I could not help but wonder what Bod Wills and Hank Williams would have thought of the "proud" Queer Black kid in his sequenced suit!!! I didn't get through his routine. When I went back to it..there is Ol Billy Rae Cyrus trying to be relevant..."Where is Travis Tritt and Marty Stewart" when you need them! ha I couldn't watch anymore...guess I have finally turned into my father, ha!...

Sometimes you have to wear Mucks if you want to do the turkey shoot back there.

Take a shît at home, they can’t handle any brown trout.

They can’t swing the $30k for the E-One grinder and 120ft bore under 5 lanes to catch the forcemain.

That's the one that's on the road going to the Sportsman Lodge and the riding stables isn't it. Lafayette Road, I believe?

If so, it's not much....

Sorry, I feel $35 shipped is a fair price for a set of Redding dies in this condition. Shipping alone is $7.90.

I do appreciate the offer though it does appear the norm on this forum, and I prefer, offers via PM so that they do not clutter up the posting....

If you want the flattest possible trajectory at your state range, with predictable results, it would be hard to beat the 130-grain coppers. I have shot a number of deer with the Hornady Interlock 150s at 3000 fps and they do real well, but may not always exit on large deer. It just depends on what your priorities are. If you are wanting the best trajectory, the lighter bullets will definitely give you a better path, but not by much....

Here's a trick with a point & shoot camera - use it like a spotting scope. Do you see a deer on the far hillside but just can't make out the size of the antlers? Zoom the camera in to it's max, rest it on something to get as steady as possible and take the shot. Switch it to play back your photos and enlarge it on the screen. You'll be able to pull it in real close. The quality of the photo will be crap but you can see enough detail to know what's what....
