Educational Zone #181 – Product Evaluation – A Rifle Brake for 3gun Nation Competition Guidelines

I got an e-mail from Jeremy from Kahntrol Solutions and he told me that they had designed a couple of new rifle brakes and wondered if I would like to do an evaluation. I said, sure. He sent me a couple of brakes with these design limitations. First was a KST3G threaded ½” – 28 (standard AR-15 threads) with a through hole of up to .243. This brake was designed to fit the 3 Gun Nation rules for competition. The MSRP [...]

Educational Zone #180 – Levi’s Christmas Rifle

My grandson Levi is 7 years old. He has been showing an interest in going hunting with his Mom and Dad, and so we know what that means. He needs a rifle.

It was a very interesting experience and I thought you guys might enjoy learning about the sport. The Hunter Class Benchrest game is just that…..a [...]

Educational Zone #177 – Mexican Match Ammunition

When I used to compete in military rifle matches, competitors were always looking for an “edge” against their competition. However, most of us were on a somewhat limited budget. The matches would supply us with military ball ammo in many cases. Someone once got a great idea about how to “improve” this cheap (free) ammunition. What they came up with was called “Mexican Match”. We are not sure where that name [...]
