That article is very helpful but is shown with no credentials. I do accept it though. I just want to add that the .40 S&W with its 180 gr bullet was appropriately subsonic, so loads of the 165 grain...

Tell that to the handgun manufacturers, not me. Calling people who disagree YAHOOs is not helpful to them or to you.

Just bought my second .38 Spl. The first is a pocket lightweight snubber. This new one is a 4" range gun with target sights.

I am pretty adamant about not shooting 38s from my prized .357s. I'm...

There are so many parallels in evolution of the language. If wishing to be understood or even politically correct, one better keep up.

Sorry man, but clearly the companies who make both types of handguns make distinctions using the terms pistols versus revolvers. To me, that trumps any layman's dictionary. See the Smith & Wesson and...

I have loaded that bullet with PowerPro 300-MP. I thought 17.0g was too punishing but found 16.0g to be pretty awesome in my 5" GP100. That was when I ordered and installed the Hogue Tamer grip. Good...

Demand for dies should primarily be a function of the sales of presses (yes, there are surely other factors). It seems that everything related to reloading is currently subject to shortages.

Looking back on what I bought for some depth of supply three years ago, "ridiculously priced ammo" bought today is tomorrow's object of envy. You'd be amazed what I have and what I paid, pounced on...

Be clear that ammo IS AVAILABLE. You just have to be willing and able to pay for it. Getting your favorite at a price you like is another matter.

200 gr FTX (460 S&W) for 45 LC
