Re: Leftist Political Cartoonist Calls for Revolution, Viole

I'd like to see the numbers regarding the average number of guns owned by liberals as compared to conservatives. It probably isn't that different. Liberals own guns. They just don't believe that anyone else should be allowed to own guns. Similar hypocracy can be found in their individual use of fos...

Re: NIA Projects Future U.S. Food Price Increases

Inflation.us is a scam with a hidden agenda. Of course, that doesn't change the fact that there will always be inflation (because our monetary system needs it to survive), and that inflation is going to be worse in the next few years than it has been in recent history. Stocking up on the non-perisha...

Also, Consumer Reports recently advised its readers to ensure that you leave CFs on for at least 10 minutes. Not doing so may cause them to burn out early.

Booya! New Tac-X bullets on left, .224 53gr XFB on right for comparison. The 30 caliber bullet impacted water at 2218fps.

Re: Quickload has a new data package available

I can't determine the 3.6 release date from their website, but the 3.6 data CD they sent me says, "24 August 2010". I have version 3.5 and bought the new 3.6 data package. 3.5 doesn't have IMR Trailboss, but 3.6 does. If you can pull up Trailboss you probably have the 3.6 data (assuming that there w...

Do you have a part number? I just spoke with Barnes. The gal from orders had no idea, so she forwarded me on to tech support. He didn't know either, and forwarded me on to one of their engineers. The engineer is doing some digging for me, as he didn't know where the bullets they produced ended up. N...

Re: Handloading 300 BLACKOUT

What powders are appropriate for use in supersonic loads through the new 9" PDW upper? I believe I've read a reference to H110.

I'm looking for a powder that will keep the suppressed/unsuppressed rate of fire appropriate so the gun is neither sluggish nor beats itself up.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Gel tests.

Ahh, is it the same one they use in the 30 RAR?

The data reveals why guys who shoot the whisper like the Nosler 125gr Ballistic Tips for larger game - they seem to do the bulk of their damage a little deeper than the others.

Do you have a recommendation, based on your testing, for larger game?

Great. I look forward to the seeing how the factory loads perform.

This is an awesome amount of data. Thanks for sharing it.

Can you reveal the manufacturer of the 123gr projectile?
