No, what's driving this is fear. Plain old simple fear. We've been under the gun politically for several years, and for the last couple of those years, those on the left have given up all pretense...

Not having a crimp groove is no big deal at all with a lead bullet. I've loaded a ton on 230 gr. RN into .45 AR (and .45 Schofield, which uses the same weight bullet) and simply turned the crimp...

The difference is in how the action works. An auto magazine doesn't move, so you don't have to worry about inertia walks the bullets out of the case. A revolver cylinder reacts with the recoil, and...

Its not 238 gr. They're using a European style 0, with the slash. Look in the top right corner for the round count. 50 cartridges, same slash zero.

Wasn't just one survey, it was quite a few of them. My own limited testing was in line with their criticisms as well. I've seen a few incidents over the years, and 230 gr. has always done a better...

Isn't that the load that gave 185s such a bad rep? I distinctly remember reading reports of surface blowups, core separations, and lack of penetration with the 185 gr. loads, and not just the...

Sarcasm is a tool used in writing, and often works when nothing else does. As several others have noted, there's nothing wrong with +P, and if you have the skill to use it, why not? Most people...

Maybe if you tried practicing some, you wouldn't have a problem. All I shoot is +P, and what I carry, and I can put a mag full into a group you can cover with a playing card at 7 yds. Every time.

Sorry, but that's just a variation of the jacketed bullet thing. A gas check is crimped into place, so any edge it has will be turned in toward the bullet and away from the bore. Its only purpose...

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...

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...

Been carrying off and on for a lot of years. Virtually all of it until recently has been with 1911 .45s. Now, I've also included a 4" Redhawk .45 Colt, and a 4" Model 69 .44 S&W in the rotation. ...

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...

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...
