    I don't use it for edible game but my Hmong friends love it with FMJ's for edible game. Like any cartridge proper bullet selection is paramount. The 17 grain V-Max are highly explosive the 17 grain hollow points less so and the FMJ's not at all. ...

    My experiences with the 17 HMR are somewhat different. I have several all CZ 452's or 453's. I order ammo from Mid-South when it's on sale in 2,000 or 4,000 orders. A case is 2,000 rounds. Primarily used for shooting prairie dogs but I have...

    I've got a full set from 5/16" to 1 1/2" my dad gave me in 1972 . Like them a lot better than Snap-on because the Williams is not slick like Snap-on.

    OK I will make it really simple. So called journalists knowingly used "unnamed sources" to flat out libel yet they can't be held account for the libel. Eliminate using "unnamed sources" source and the problem goes away. If a journalist accurately...

    Wow that's out of left field. As to the solution that easy. Journalists Use Words Like 'Claimed' and 'Alleged' for a reason. It gives them additional protection from libel laws. Seems like a good idea but the reality is it's just a license to...

    Volume reduces costs. If you find someone willing to build 3 or less my guess is you are looking at $300 to $500 each if you are lucky. If you order a 1,000 you should be able to get them for $20 or $30 each

    In addition to avoiding steel cases (which might actually be brass plated steel, and get past the visual inspection), you also need to avoid nickel plated brass. Those don't move metal the same way as the plain brass cases do. So, as was previously...
