False conclusion from observed facts.

The Tueller Drill is a teaching point for self-defense. The point of it is that an attacker armed with a knife - within twenty feet - can wound or kill a man armed with a gun before the defender can...

I regularly carry both .38 Special revolver and .357 Magnum revolvers.

I prefer the 158 grain weight for defense, but not jacketed. I rather like the 158 grain lead SWC with appropriate...

Good impulse. I carried one on my concealed weapon license for a year.

I hope it grows up into a real caliber.

Had my first of the ilk - a surplus G. I. Ithaca M1911A1 - at the age of 16. I cannot remember NOT have either a surplus M1911A1 or commercial Government Model since. I will be 65 years of age...

It may be legitimate, but from only what you reported, I'd pass on it.

I see no reason to sell a firearm to someone else so the 'someone else' involved can sell it to the person wanting to...

There are other more important issues.

In my experience - and I have no other 'hard' evidence - the 'exact' amount of powder in any given round is probably the least important variable.

I've loaded both rifle and handgun rounds using...

What Rick said.

Beginning with starting loads and observing will take care of the 'problem'. What you MAY NOT do is to simply substitute the new bullet in one of your existing "high end" loads.

Alternate view

I'm sure the doctor's observations and reporting are accurate and valid. I have some reservation about his conclusions.

Here's the basis of my reservation: All emergency room and autopsy...

Some old truths from the dawn of time...

Lighter bullets rely on high velocity for kinetic energy levels. Heavier bullet loads rely more on momentum factor than kinetic energy. For penetration in a single, hard surface (like a car door or...

Ivory or even faux ivory is less brittle and easy to break or chip than mother of pearl.

I think I remember the article.

And I think the story has grown a bit.

If I'm remembering the same article, AND if I'm remembering correctly - the article was about the effect of barrel-cylinder gap on muzzle velocity. The...

Yes, they are. I have a couple model 19 revolvers (the same revolver except in blued steel rather than stainless) and they are among the easiest moving devices made by man.

The worst place to 'save money' is on a scope. In my opinion, Leupold is a hard scope to beat. I think the idea of a 'hold over' calculator built in to the scope is a waste of resources, except for...

22-250 vs. the 220 Swift, vs. the 223 Rem

As with most questions of the type, what are the criteria?

.223 Remington is cheapest to load, AND is the least 'noisy' over a distance. It is also the one with the shortest range.

Hard to...

Probably not a problem

You dropped loaded ammo on a concrete floor.

Look at it.

If the bullets are jammed back into the cases to a dangerous degree, it will be apparent. If bullet set back is so minute as to require...
