    Click here to listen to the podcast! When it comes to the scholarly debate about the iconic rifle cartridges of the Cold War, the 7.62x51mm NATO (308 Winchester) and the 7.62x39 Soviet are always omnipresent in the discussion. One became a staple NATO round and the most prevalent big game...

    The 300 AAC Blackout and 7.62x39mm Soviet are two centerfire rifle cartridges that are extremely similar in terms of external ballistics and terminal performance. The 7.62x39 has been a mainstay for former Communist Bloc countries for decades and has proven its combat effectiveness on the...

    The 7.62x39 Russian and the 30-30 Winchester are two centerfire 30-caliber rifle cartridges that are extremely similar in terms of their external and terminal ballistics. Despite their similarities, these two rifle cartridges were designed for completely different purposes and rifles. The 30-30...

  6. Auto & Semi-Auto Discussion
    So I should preface this by saying that I'm sorry if y'all get these questions a whole lot. I'm new here. I should also say that I'm no gunsmith, I'm still learning the finer details about the inner workings on guns, but I'm not totally lost either lol. Anyway, I've been wanting a versatile...
  7. Auto & Semi-Auto Discussion
    I was looking to buy an AK-47, but ever since Obama said the words "gun control" I've seen the prices on those rifles double to around $600 on average. I know that Izhmash makes the civilian version of the Kalashnikov called the Saiga (not to be confused with the Saiga 12 shotgun). I've seen...

Most of the rounds look fine but a dozen or so have some yellowing (residue?). Are these corroded and unsafe? I haven't used calipers to measure them but they don't seem to be...
