    Illinois State Troopers use the Glock 22 in 40S&W IF you have one already or know how to resource one for your next test. Chicago PD has a convoluted listing of the pistols authorized for the use of their police officers based off their date of...

    I wonder if having the receipt from Ballistic Products for the Bismuth shot and showing the shells are actually reloads (seems most COs would be smart enough to tell) would suffice? Besides, don't COs in most states carry some means of testing...

    Honestly, I have zero experience with them, but this is the first time I ever heard a negative word about those BLRs. Interesting.

    BNE is a very stand up guy, he tested three batches of metal for me a while back and I am very happy with how he conducts business. You can't go wrong.

    Onelight, I know what you mean. I have 50-70, 9.3x 74, 400 jeffery, 50 alaskan, I was lucky I had blocks made for 10 gauge through 410 bore so no issue for me, but for many others that ends up being a DIY project because there is not a lot to handle...

    This is same material I used 4 years ago for my shotgun loading blocks. The current layout for shotshell blocks has the holes much closer together so materials are used more efficiently, and the blocks can be shipped in the usps flat rate priority...

    These are made from exterior mdf sprayed and buffed with a sanding sealer. These also have internal steps to accommodate different rim sizes.

    I have a pretty good sized stash of "purish" lead, but noit sure it's really pure enough for muzzle loader bullets (big solder donuts from cast iron water pipe, lead pipe with soldered ends that are probably some tin, etc), I also have a coffee can...

    The detachable magazine ones are pure abominations. As to obscure calibers, I see 20 in .300 Savage for every other caliber out there, and that isn't obscure, lots of ammo and load data for it and it works well with cast in my experience. My...

    I need to see if it's playing around here. I've always been fascinated by the bombing campaigns over Europe in WWII. Amazing courage those guys had. If you ever get a chance to go to the 8th Air Force museum in Savannah, Georgia, it's definitely...

    I just brought home the first of our CNC cut loading blocks. It's a prototype so some adjustments may occur, but that's the reason for the test run. Depending on how this goes I'm thinking of offering these blocks for sale as a vendor after I find...

    Got my .354 sizer today along with my 44 spcl brass so time to make up some rounds for the 44 and the 380. I also started my testing on a new loading block I'm cutting on our CNC router. Will be testing this block and tweeking the final...

    I have several 99s. They are so far ahead of the tube fed, low pressure things that I hardly consider them lever guns in the traditional sense. Sorry of that comes off as snobbish as I own a few '94 Winchesters and a couple of waffle top Marlins...

    How big a barrel channel is in that forearm? At first glance, I figured it was for a break open single barrel shotgun, but now it looks like it was something someone made for a target rifle of some sort. Looks nice.

    You can always get a Ruger Blackhawk in .30 Carbine if you want a revolver. I agree with your assessment, it's an under rated cartridge.

    Thanks very much for posting this, I wouldn't have guessed a .30-30 case would last that long. Kind of makes me wonder how much longer it would last with neck sizing, lighter loads and occasional annealing.
