    The $300 AR isn't mil spec. Once you get to mil spec, like Spikes Tactical $1300, I don't think there is a difference. Almost all top brands, are made with Aero Precision parts. A guy on youtube fired a Spikes Tactical 3500 times on full auto, until...

    I shoot lighter bullets, i.e. 120 grain, .358, 9mm in my .357 revolvers at my steel targets. Heavy bullets have too much thump...

    It's my understanding, the softest bullet that doesn't lead the barrel, will be the most accurate. Also, soft lead is cheaper than lino or wheel weights. I water drop everything so hardness isn't an issue. As long as my bullets are the right size, I...

    Has anyone shot cast bullets from a bolt, or single shot. One of my many theories is, the gas port in the AR's barrel erodes, or otherwise damages the cast bullet before it leaves the muzzle. I've been tempted to try cast bullets in my XP-100, to...

    I moly all of my jacketed bullets and seal them with Carnauba wax. It keeps the copper fouling at a minimum with high speed bullets like the 220 Swift, 6mm Rem etc. After as few as 10 rounds without moly, copper fouling is present. You can see it...

    To begin with Interarmes aren't clones, they're Walther made in America. They, unlike the S&W Walthers retain the original trigger design. My pistol is beautifully made, has a great trigger and shoots lead and jacketed bullets perfectly. It hasn't...

    I have a stainless Interarms Walther PPK 380 that I shoot surprising well. I load a 90 grain HP bullet to 1100 FPS for my carry ammo and have great confidence in this pistol. Also, they sell for a lot less than $1500...
