  • Posted in thread: Crossbreed Holsters on 09-15-2017 at 10:00 PM
    After looking for a while, I'm picking up a Crossbreed holster for my Sig P6. There are only a
    couple manufacturers that make specific holsters for older handguns. It can take up to a month
    to make it...

    OMFG, I can buy as many firearms in a single day as I want. I guess the figure it will thin out
    the population as you'll just be waiting.....Places like Camden, Trenton, Newark, are places
    I'd never g...

    Plinking cost will depend on if you reload or not. I have an EMF Hartford, originally made by
    Rossi, and slicked up by EMF in .44-40. I can buy 205gr swaged lead for pennies a piece. Using
    Unique a ca...

    You can find great deals on AR's. I went down to a local shop to get an AR10 lower. While I was
    waiting I picked up a Bushmaster that had a lot of after market mods. Foregrip, bolt carrier
    group, trig...

    recoil is a subjective thing. it's also dependent upon the design of the pistol, along with
    grip design, and weight.a particular cartridge in one pistol may be tame, and in lighter and
    smaller pistol,...

    The New P225 was very little in common with the original P6/225. It is a nice pistol, but I
    wish they at least used the same magazine.

    I just wish people would become proficient with calibers suited to where they live. I would
    have no use for a .338 LM. But I am still looking for a nice 9.3x62. Even my lowly 9.3x57 was
    plenty of ener...

    I am thinking about a new concept in stocks. Something natural, light-weight, recyclable, holds
    up to all weather and looks good.....Wood! What if we made rifle stocks outta wood? Oak, pine

    Remington sold the Model 798 and 799 from 2006 to 2008, and those were manufactured by Zastava
    for Remington. they were really nice looking and decently accurate rifles. shame that Remington

    How about the Ruger American, they've been getting good reviews.If I was getting a range bolt
    rifle i'd spend the extra cash and get a CZ 527 Carbine, 7.62X39. :DCan pick up a 440rd spam

Thanks for the links on DGRs . Rugers,Alaskan in 375 R in an 8 lb rifle. - too light for caliber ?

I was researching the BC for the 338 vs 7 mm debate and I decided to look up your favorite .366:

Nosler 250 gr. BC .494

Nobler 286 gr. SD 307. BC .494. Accubond

Woodleigh 320 gr. SD 341 BC .457

With these high BCs, they just might turn the "potato checker" into a longer range weapon. Worth a try at least...

GUNS - June digital edition "Strictly Down the Middle" - article on 9.3 x 62. Enjoy !
February 11, 2013  •  05:28 PM
I never checked my comment section. I do love the 9.3. I use Speer 270gr sp and Hornady 286gr sp. I use the 270's on whitetail, but they are addiquite for black bear. The Hornady have a BC of .410 and an SD of .305. With a 150 yard zero in my x57 at 2100fps MV it packs 2100fpe, at 200 yards -4.4" and 1900fpe, 250yards -11.8" and 1715fpe. A slight hold over out to 250 yards and it is still a wrecking ball. I'm fine w/ it at 150 yard max and iron sights.
