    Yellowstone is pretty cool, but it's peak season right now. I'm sure it will be super busy, so just plan on waiting in line. I've only been there once. It's worth seeing.

    I'm surprised at the number of people in the past year I've found asking about paper boxes. I can understand reusing completely, but I had one person who was willing to pay extra shipping (I was selling brass) to have me dig the old ammo boxes out...

    Good article! like I said, don't have a 1911, but remember training in the Nav with the combination of safetys. Never thought about the flexibility that provides.

    Thank you. I carried one in the military for a long time, good ol' flap holster, hammer down. I'm surprised at the "locked and cocked" carry options.

    I've always had good service from them. Yes, if you use the default low-cost free shipping, then they use that silly "innovations" shipping system which just adds delay. But I've always found that the difference in that shipping to my remote...

    I have several of the Lee HB molds and all work just fine. I warm mine up on the pot as I melt the lead and after several pours I get good results. I tend to keep my lead on the hot side. Get a good cadence going and they drop like butter. I...

    I am looking for a small sample of the 453-220-RF cast as a hollow point using a relatively soft alloy. I have a lot of different bullets in a number of calibers I can trade, including the NOE 452-232-HP.

    I have ran into is loose neck tension on some old 300 RUM brass that my buddy gave me when he sold his gun. The 1999' brass cases were shot and fired enough that he and I lost count of the firings. Anyways, the neck tension on almost all of them...

    If your eyes can't do it, a red dot can save you. Honestly eyesight is not that big of a deal when shooting at 50 yards, unless you are really trying to scrape every last inch out you can. You often hear things like "the gun is more accurate than I...
