    When Winchester redesigned the Model 70 in 1964, they dropped the Swift, which had a
    semi-rimmed case, and replaced it with the .225 Winchester, which had a rimmed case. In 1965,
    Remington released th...

    I am contemplating writing a book about the .220 Swift. This cartridge has always been one of

    I recently puchased a Ruger American in .308 Winchester. From the brief range session (sighting
    in and shooting a few 3-shot groups), I believe this will be a M.O.A. rifle. Also, it has a
