    Mount and rings are both Nikon. :)a lot would depend on the mount and the rings themselves. i
    am sure some would hold zero much better than others. cost of those would probably be the best
    factor to c...

    My first rimfire was a Hopkins and Allen 5 shot 22 short revolver. It was pretty beat up, not
    sure exactly how I came by it, I was 14 or 15 at the time and wisely got rid of it. My first
    decent rimfir...

    It would be great if people would date when they got their first firearm and their age at the
    time. Nice to see how the first firearms progressed through the years.

    Did anyone else watch Young Guns on ABC last night, 10:00 pm (1/31/14)? Dianne Sawyer was at
    her pathetic best, with head bobbing as she lamented the plight of children in homes with guns
    or living wh...

    Actually the 357 mag peaks in a 16" barrel and you can get 2100+ fps with 125 grain. Loaded
    specifically for rifles, the 357 could easily surpass that. 16 grains of blue dot behind a 110
    grain will gi...

    [quote=redscho;1495651]you cant achieve those velocities in a revolver... the 357 is a rimmed
    cartridge and doesnt really fed well in a magazine. while the 357 outperforms the 30 carbine
    when chambere...

    [QUOTE=JonM;1495636] SNIPsecondly the 30m1 carbine is a more powerful round than a 357 magnum

    The .357 Magnum was never even considered. Contenders were the 351 Win. Self Loading and .35
    WSL, among a few others. Smith & Wesson had made the 9mm Light Rifle for the British, but that
    was doomed f...
