    The 223/556 appears to kill wild boar pretty efficiently. They're pretty tough critters.

    Allison wasn't real happy that Merlins were used in the P-51 and later on developed an engine that actually would blow the doors off the Merlin. It was too late of course so the rest is history. I've read where the Merlins had to be worked on all...

    The British also used the Merlin engine in a good number of their tanks too!

    Doug not picking an argument with just want to talk about some things. The M16 has killed me with a single shot further then that. I'd say man is pretty comparable to a white tail deer in size. Also we've all heard that about just would a soldier...

    The ball powder got the velocity the Army wanted. I'm sure they got a good deal on it too. At the time the original stick couldn't match the ball powder, but later on it did when they changed the type.

    When you are levering the barreled action in the stock on a M1 Carbine there should be just a little tension before it is fully bedded. As you know all that holds it in the action is the hook on the rear of the action and the barrel band up front....

    OS OK this is off topic some, but I'll touch on it. Yes you are correct about the chroming. Here's what I understand. McNamara didn't want to chrome the chambers and bores because of cutting cost, even though he was told it needed to be done. With...

    We all know the reason's for the problems with the M16 in VN, or at least should know them. If you want to put the blame on someone (not an inanimate thing like an M16) put the major portion of it on McNamara. He's the one that had corners cuts and...

    Minuteshaver, You sure sound like a bitter fellow about a lot of things. That's okay you have that right in this country. I wouldn't call anyone buying an AR a moron. This crazy fad about hanging everything on your AR came from the military...

    Before you get to harping on Colt too much way back in the early days of the M16 the Army asked for a piston system. Colt came up with one, but by then the Army changed it's mind. Yes Colt has done some bad things like caving in to the...

    Well I like how you mentioned the "plastic". Look how we bemoaned when they started putting aluminum trigger guards on many of the bolt rifles. Then many became plastic. Now many have stocks that are laminate, plastic, or fiberglass. I still love...

    First most the nomenclature listed is about standard for a quality AR. I'm not sold on hammer forged barrels being the most accurate. With that said, and just my opinion, there are equally good AR's out there a lot cheaper.

    The Whelen will kind of be like the 45-70 getting hit with a plank! Another cartidge in just about the same league as the Whelen is the 358 Winchester. Both it and the Whelen are great cast calibers. After you get settled out with the Whelen...

    You pretty much hit your own nail on the head. Yes the goal is single digits and lower single digits. When you get those low single digits you will often see duplicate readings on your chrono. But, there is more then how the powder is burning. Neck...
