Re: Rim fire fun

When I lived in prairie dog land I kept my 22s sighted in at 100 yds. Used to go hit a dog town and burn a brick shooting out to 200 at those little buggers. Didn't kill them all but it sure was fun trying to!

Nothing more fun than spending time with a 22.

I have an Armalite 10T, it's a factory match HB in 308. I got it in a trade. Darn accurate but do I really need it? Nope. I've been debating selling it. Heck I've been debating selling all of my ARs. Yeah they are all accurate guns but I just have any love for them. Give me walnut & steel...

Re: .357 Mag Handloading with H110 vs Lil'Gun Powders. A Surprising Result

I noticed the my trap gun barrels shooting factory ammo (B& P) got warmer than with my 700X reloads. I sent B& P an email asking about the powder- seems they are using a high nitro content powder- low volume/ bulk. The extra nitro produces the heat? But it's very clean! I'm onboard with the high rou...
