    From what I have read over 12 years on internet shooting related forums, MOST people who reload their own ammunition who use a public range, the only brass they leave on the floor is going to be rim fire and stuff that's no longer safe to use.

    whod have thought, designing the gun to handle any ammo isssues from the get go like the model 98, the m14, or the 91/30 would be a logical thing to do.

    The rifle issue I don't believe is going to be solved. they need more barrel for starters, switching everyone to a jeep drivers m4 carbine was not smart when 80% of troops still need a RIFLE barrel. the DSM program kind of proved that. The...

    I need a nap. \\ I have a few good ideas on what off the shelf components to use for the case itself. the fact that I have no actual interest in using anything more then a primer makes it a lot easier.

    I have a few very beautiful concept theories on how to build the cartridges. The saddest part is, the "easiest" to do is actually the most expensive in the long run via having to toss so much special order materials. But the irony is that in...

    The issue is with the ammunition, I had thought it was a rifle issue but i solved THAT issue by taking a random sampling of 10 rounds from each box i had, and running it through a neighbors 22 rifle. same rough rate of failure to fire, same abysmal...

    Minuteshaver replied to a thread .22 LR Available in Rimfire Area
    the quality is NOT what it was. Hell, to be honest I don't believe the quality of rimfire ammunition is what it was in say perhaps 1942.

    I buy everything with an eye for reloading it, don't like berdan brass for that reason. cant get the berdan primers, cant reload it. can make for some sad sad lack of ammo at times.

    Its just that the most comprehensive options are hard to determine on the rifle itself. I don't particularly have much issue with break open single shots, but the concept is for a fast shooting rifle to engage multiple targets at a time. I can...

    CCI CB Shorts and CB longs. CCI has a factory control issue with this ammunition. I have dealt with them in the past about it, and they felt that a 30-40% failure rate, failure to fire on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th try by rotating the cartridge...

    A few simple basic air gun questions. I haven't gotten a new airgun in well, 18 years so I have no idea on the current status of the industry. Is there a standardized rifling pattern? Standardized twist rate? Has any of the cranky target...
