    Be aware that almost every company has their "throwaway" model! I was a service tech at a Toyota dealership in the early 90s, and I can tell you, the final series of the tercel was crap on wheels! During cold weather, every tech in the shop had at...

    Forgive the drift. I was focused on the American and not the blackout. My experience with the bo has been that most bullets will shoot with complications, but every rifle has its quirks! (I have an ar carbine, a manual ar pistol, and an H & R...

    My biggest gripe about the American is its lack of refinement, but with the price point, I'm not that upset. Action's kinda raspy, but it's nothing that won't get better with use. I've thought about going through the internals with some 2000grit...

    I wish I was surprised by the revelation of the kids not being taught basic physical math, but I'm not. I recall one of my best learning toys was Legos, provided fun plus learning. Too many schools teach to the test, and never seem to show the...

    Another municipality, if I've heard correctly, does something similar, and sells it under the trade name mansoil.....gardeners love the stuff. Apparently, they treat it until it is biologically inactive, dehydrate it, then bag it. I've heard...

    If I'm remembering the dimensions correctly, the 6.5 grendel is basically a ppc expanded to .264, more or less. Both can be made from 7.62 x 39.
