    First off, don’t try to self-diagnose. Most folks who teach a basic handgun course will know what to look for and can help you with a one-hour private lesson.

    Others have done an excellent job describing the the structural and mechanical aspects of monetizing a blog, but those things won't make people want to read it. Your buddy needs to have a unique take...

    He's a shooter, so he thinks that S&W should sell what shoots well. Most shooters have no idea what matters on a weapon, so they buy stupid stuff, which S&W will happily provide.

    20-round groups are probably useful, but neither my budget nor my attention span are sufficient for that.

    Hope your better half feels better soon.

    Yes, I use the Berger method. It radically reduces the time and components required to identify good loads because it isolates seating depth as the variable. If you can call your shots reliably, then...

    A few issues:
    Pressure nodes are largely irrelevant if you don’t have pressure-testing equipment. Forget about them and focus on accuracy. It’s possible to work with Overall Length but the Hornady...

    Short barrels can work very well in the 30-06, especially if you handload. I once had an 18" pseudo-Scout that would do an honest 2,600 with 180-grain bullets and a book-max load of H4831.

    I quit...

    Most cheap 30-06 factory ammo is loaded for deer hunters, so performance is optimized for that. Buy it, use it in confidence, and don’t sweat the twist rate. 1:10 is standard for the 30-06 for one...

    I briefly owned a Ruger American Standard in 308 with a flush-fit mag. It was accurate and balanced well but nothing about the mag design or execution inspired confidence. The Predator seems like a...

    Agree on the bolt gun for all the reasons provided.

    I'd look at various compact and/or youth models in 308. Ammo is available everywhere. They typically have a 20" barrel, which is about as short...

    I use this one.



    Most barrels shoot well when they're hot, but the mirage coming off of the barrel distorts what you see through your optics. That's why Palma and F-class shooters use mirage...

    QFT. If a 250-grain SWC at 1,000 fps will shoot end-to-end through a deer, then how much more do you really need?




    Yep.

    Factory 45 Colt ammo could be a pointy 180-grain bullet at 600 fps...

    This is a shame. Mr. Sokol tuned up a Model 29-2 that my father gave me.

    I agree with mizer67. I'll add that a lot of cast bullet shooters go pretty deep into the weeds on the details of how bullets, designs, and lubes perform. Off the top of my head, I see a few gaps in...

    I'll be interested to see how you solve the bottom-metal issue. Will it feed from 1911 mags like the original?
