    i use cci standard velocity in everything. it's subsonic, so a bit quieter, and is way more consistent than other brands through my guns. my Ruger mk2 LOVES it.

    I'll give the grendel a vote. there's plenty of 7.63x39 brass to pick up at my local range, and they're just a full length size and 1 reload away from being fine grendel brass with big primers to boot. (300 can be made from .223 with some more...

    my vote (in this hypothetical business) goes to a hardcast .690 ball loaded inside a 12 gauge shotcup. Booger the ball up real good by rolling it around on a sidewalk before you load it, and burn the plastic shell after the shooting, or ditch it at...

    12 gauge shotgun shells full of corn meal, grits, or rice are my go-to for stinging swarming insects. You can get quite a payload in those things if you cut down the wad to just a gas seal, and then reduce the powder charge by about half. I know...

    I've been tossing around the idea of a poor-man's ball mill for making cast lead balls more perfectly round. At the moment it's just an old freon tank with a hole in it. I pour in a load of balls, seal the hole and let it crash around in the back...

    Your factory barrel for the 870 is likely sufficient for shooting any slug you like outto 50 yards with the right choke tube. A short smoothbore barrel with sights is good for "tactical" applications, but may not be cut for chokes, so there isn't...
