You all can poke fun all you want, but after watching his training video for the last few years, I think its safe to say Keanu can outshoot 90% of the tyros out here who think they know it all when...

When you two get done comparing Johnsons, can we get back to the discussion? I will just add, however, that most cops (not all, most) are only as good as their training, and a lot of what passes for...

Something like ten million new shooters have been added to the mix over the last six months. That takes a lot of production to feed. Now add in the demand from people looking to stockpile a bunch...

Sorry, but that is an internet myth. All it does is iron out the lead in the lands and grooves. I would also not let moly anywhere near my guns. The stuff is nasty, and extremely hard to clean out...

Be very careful using chemicals of any kind, especially if they're oil based. It only takes a tiny amount to kill a primer or ruin a powder charge. Of course, if you use a wax based product like...

Seems to me that you are adding insult to injury as the saying goes. First, if you already know and acknowledge that seating and crimping separately is the better way to go, why are even...

The number one cause of leading is bullet sizing not being right. Wrong or inadequate lube is number two. Hardness is number three. I've tried just about every combination you can come up with...

Tarnish is nothing more than oxidation. That's why they leave the discoloring from annealing on brass. It is oxidation and protects it, and helps lubricate it during feeding. Civilians however,...

Round nose flat point, or wide flat point, not just a straight round nose. The RN profile facilitates feeding, and the wide meplat does the damage. The wider the better. Hollow points tend to vere...

If you're worried about availability that much, then stop expending buckets of ammo every week. An awful lot of people have gotten into the habit of shooting hundreds of rounds a month. You don't...

That's why I tried wet tumbling for about ten minutes, and then went back to dry tumbling. Wet strips the brass surface to bare metal. That makes it do all kinds of weird things. Tarnish on brass...

I seriously doubt it was the Tula ammo that broke it. When I was shooting combat pistol matches, I had a custom built 1911 that I used. After 5 years and approximately 50000 rds, my extractor gave...

Nothing wrong with steel cased .45 ammo. The US fielded millions of rds of it in WWII when cartridge brass was scarce. Numerous tests have been conducted over the years with steel case handgun ammo...

Well, there's +P and then there's 'PLUS P' if you catch my meaning. Normal +p is running between 21k and 23k pressure. Any modern steel full size 1911 should be able to handle that all day long, as...

There is a difference betwen 'can it handle it' and 'can I use it all the time'. Many, if not most, modern 1911 guns can handle it without any problem. But, if you intend to run a steady diet of +P...

I hate to burst your bubble, but wiping the lead out of the bore with a jacketed bullet is an old wives' tale. At best, all it does is iron out the lead and make it next to impossible to get out of...

You are an accident waiting to happen doing that. Lubing the case prior to firing prevents the case walls from sealing the chamber properly, and increases the bolt thrust which causes excessive wear...

Assuming proper diameter of .452" for a lead bullet in the .45 ACP, there are two things that cause leading. First, is alloy hardness. Too soft is often just as bad as too hard. Rifling in a...
