I think its fake news. I just heard on Hannity tonight that wet markets are still operating in Wuhan. China has launched a huge major advertising effort to kill the idea that this whole f'ing mess...

You can say what you want about how ancient and wise Chinese civilization is, but I say that only applies to the elite upper class mandarins. The rest of China is still essentially living in the...

They haven't stopped. This is entirely due to imbeciles hoarding ammo, just like they were doing with toilet paper, eggs, bread, etc. Did I say it is due to idiots, imbeciles, morons, etc.? And...

The question you should be asking is whether or not you actually need that level of press. If you're like most of us, buying at that level will take forever to amortize. If your reason for a...

Ogive diameter varies from bullet type to bullet type at the point the ogive contacts the rifling. That in turn causes each type to need different seating depth. Minor differences in seating depth...

That's why I bailed on 5.56 years ago. I've got 2000 rds of .277 Wolverine sitting here, plus brass that I haven't converted yet, and a couple mason jars full of Gold Dot pulls. We won't even go...

Blasphemer! Technology has benefited the .45 just as much as it has the 9mm. I'll put a good .45 up against a 9mm any day of the week without a second thought.

The best 9mm barely gets to .45...

It isn't. Those may be called Silvertips, but they ain't the same as the originals I shot in the 80s. As previously mentioned, the originals had an aluminum skin that ruptured if you looked at it...

While I do not load 9mm (I personally loathe the cartridge), I do own and use the U-die for .45 ACP and it works wonderfully. Although the .45 is a straight wall case and 9mm is tapered, I think the...

I'd like to know who made a law that a bullet 'has to' expand in order to be good. I swear I wish nobody had ever heard of hollow points and got the idea that massive expansion was the only way to...

I've been a political junkie for 60+ years. One thing I've learned is to never listen to the pundits, or the pollsters on who is ahead and who is going to win. Watch the economy, and things like...

Buying ahead, and buying some extra is fine, and prudent. But don't hoard it. Buy a reasonable amount to cover your needs, and leave the rest for others to buy so they can cover their needs too.

The biggest reason for auto-indexing progressives is to reduce time spent handling cases, and to reduce the number of press handle pulls. Repetitive motions are what cause carpal tunnel problems, so...

1. You DO NOT NEED to crimp .223 (or any bottleneck case) provided you have sufficient neck tension. That means you have to measure things so that you have proper...

893 fps isn't all that hot for a 230 gr. .45 ACP. I put 10s of thousands of 230 gr FMJ-FP Hornady downrange at 930 fps using Blue Dot during my combat match days. If you're only getting 893 with a...
