    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.

    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. I surprised him this Christmas with his own rifle. I had been looking for a good used rifle to work over and fix up for him, but while...

    It has been a while since we have seen any .303 British military ball ammo available for sale. It almost brings a tear to my eye when I remember how cheap some of the .303 milsurp was back in the day. I bought a lot of it back then, but I should have "bought it cheap and stacked it deep". Oh...

    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...

    My buddy Liem called and asked me if I'd like to shoot his Dragunov sniper rifle. I said that sounded like a great idea. So today, we went to the range. His rifle is a Romanian FPK Dragunov rifle. This general model has been made by many countries since 1963 until the present. It is the "other...

    My friend Liem recently obtained a new pistol and he graciously invited me to test it with him. It is a Rock Island .22 TCM. TCM stands for Tuason Craig Micromagnum and it is a proprietary cartridge developed by Fred Craig and Rock Island Armory. Some folks have mistakenly said it is a 9mm...

    Recently, my buddy Liem asked me if I would like to shoot a couple of his rifles. They are Ruger PC9 and PC4 Carbines. Of course, I said, "Sure!" These carbines were designed by Ruger in 1996 and were discontinued in 2006. But they are still available for sell and can be obtained fairly easily...

    The Colt Python .357 Magnum was introduced by Colt in the mid 1950s. It was a "Premium" revolver, and started out as a target revolver. It became the ultimate in police handguns later in its life and I had the privilege of carrying one as a police officer in the early 1970s. The model I...

    My old buddy Tman left me a coffee can full of cast 200 grain SWC .45 bullets. They had not been sized or lubricated. Last week I set up my Lyman 450 Sizer Lubricator and ran them all through it. For those that are not familiar with cast bullets, they come from the mold slightly larger than...

    A short while back I was on Shotgunworld in the Tactical/Home Defense Forums, (also known as The Basement) and we had a guy ask a simple question: "Specifically, I'm curious about how much the shot in standard 2-3/4" 9-pellet 00 buckshot weighs. Anyone know? I tried figuring it out...

    I have shot probably hundreds of thousands of rounds of pistol ammo, and reloaded a lot of it too. But if you only shoot pistol ammo, you do not really need to be concerned about the brass stretching and getting too long. But with bottle-necked rifle ammo, this is a different story. When...
