    You just revived a curiosity on wadcutters vs auto glass. I'm guessing the factory swaged target loads would fail miserably on laminated glass, but would a relatively hard cast WC loaded to full...

    Agreed, but having gone from the police world to the gun industry world, I recognize ad writing that the typical customer, not as dialed in as are most in this group, would form the impression that...

    Not me! I'll just sit in my corner awaiting some actual DocGKR testing of this. My prediction is that it expands well in bare calibrated 10% gel but underpenetrates and is a fail in 4LD. Auto...

    The 9mm wasn't saddled with physical science limitations of mass, momentum and sectional density surfeits. It simply had horrible projectile design (a topic with which I'm very familiar from long...

    Don't know about a drop leg from Davis, but he did lots of stuff not in his catalog (Bolke has more insight on this). As for that Rogers holster you mentioned, I had one of those for a K-frame snub...

    And Federal doesn't even know how to spell correctly in their ad. It's "ordnance gel", not "ordinance gel". And color me very skeptical on the performance. You cannot overcome the laws of physics...

    You have to have a chronograph to ascertain velocity of the BB. There's a chart to compare actual velocities to actual block penetration of the BB to make sure the gel block is compliant. I think...

    And don't forget the Gordon Davis Taylor Thunderbolt and his 453 and 4532 Sparks 55BN clones. I wore a 4532 (had about a 10 degree FBI cant) lots of days in a plain clothes deployment team with a...

    All Aimpoints are a tube inside a tube. When mechanically zeroed (which is NOT zeroed for the shooter), the inside tube should be centered inside the outside tube. When you have zeroed for your...

    The Remington FBI load (R38S12) has worked really well for a really long time. It's not great on hard barriers, but does work well on side to side "money shots" on bipedal threats and the...

    The Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson 3rd Edition says your gun was made in 1972. As a matter of practice/etiquette, it's a bad idea to post full serial numbers of guns you are checking on in a...

    BG is the abbreviation for Bare Gelatin, meaning no barriers or clothing simulations. Calibration is another issue and that data (BB velocity and penetration numbers) is usually presented with the...

    It's likely a small thing to many of you, but it's NOT "ordinance" gel, but is "ordnance" gel. One is a law or legal rule, while the second has to do with munitions. It's the same maddening thing...

    I was thinking that the OP's revolver needs the headspace checked. I buy CCI SP primers by the 5000 case and use two or three of those a year. Many of those are .38 Special, fired in half a dozen...

    Jungkind was a Texas LE legend in many ways. He was Bill Jordan huge and serious. I often wonder what happened to the many TXDPS Pythons he tuned. You could carry one if you had 10 years on...

    Supposedly there are a couple thousand made and ready to ship. Don't know what it looks like, but supposed to have King Cobra like modern lockwork. SHOT should be the place to see.

    Almost as bad as my move of selling my first duty gun, an S&W Model 19-3 (very worn from a Magnum life), with the set of LH Farrant stocks included. I still moan when I think of those stocks gone...

    Way back in the day, Jeff Cooper advocated the similar 215 Markell SWC in .45 ACP over a very manly charge of Unique. I'm sure he was on to something there.

    Joking aside, BigT and his wife's story is one that will horrify you and also motivate you to work hard at your training and NEVER quit if/when a fight comes to you.

    Does the RCBS Cowboy .38 sizing die allow for decapping at the same time? I'm with you on standard dies and especially the Dillon dies oversizing .38 brass.
