    I think that the Glock has a combination of features that land it in some kind of mystical sweet spot. I’ve tested pistols with better triggers and pistols that were more accurate in slow fire at...

    Someone will come out with a 30-round mag for this within a year.

    I’ll definitely buy one of these, and will wait with bated breath to see a 22 LR on the G43 frame.

    OK. I know of a screaming deal on a stainless NMBH in 45 Colt but it’s in Pierce County.

    A buddy of mine bought a 336 Marlin after someone gave him a rear sight for one. I've always wanted to one-up him on that, then I saw this image and remembered that I have a whole bicycle inner tube...

    I just picked this up. I'd be on the range today but I'm on the home-improvement tether today. I have a can full of 230-grain 45 ACP ball ammo that will soon fulfill its destiny.

    Six, and Ruger. It's one of the new small-frame Flat Tops on the same frame as the New Vaquero so it's nowhere near as cool as your 44 Flat Top. Came with a 45 ACP cylinder and the price was right so...

    That makes sense. I'm down to 7mm Magnum, 308, and 30-06 for hunting rifles, though I wouldn't mind replacing the 7mm with a 338. Hunting revolvers are 44 Magnum and 45 Colt for now. Handloading has...

    I think it’s the Lehigh.

    My compelling reason is hunting in California, or I’d be loading a Keith SWC.

  15. What Bullet Does Buffalo Bore Use in Their All-Copper 45 Colt Load?

    Anyone know? I need to handload some for a Ruger Flat Top.

    The 3.5“ and 5” guns seem to bring a premium. So does a nickle finish. If you think it’s righteous and you can live with the price, then snap it up.

    Thanks for this link. I haven’t read Bowen’s book in years, but I remember that it had at least one laugh-out-loud line on every page. This article is the same.

    I needed to make sure that I wasn’t talking out my ass yesterday, so I went to the range and made these six-shot groups at 10 yards offhand with my Model 29-2. No warmup, I just shot three groups and...

    Just a suggestion to consider the 338 WM. It fits into an '06-length action and velocities would be adequate in the FW's 22" barrel since it has the same expansion ratio as the 30-06. It would...

    I've heard good things about JES.

    I've owned all three of the cartridges you're considering plus the 338 WM and the 375 H&H, but only killed game with the 9.3x62 (several feral cattle) and the...
