Inline Fabrication Micro Ultramount: assembly and bench mounting

You can’t build a good house without a solid foundation. Likewise, any seasoned reloader knows how important a solid mounting arrangement is for their reloading presses. In the last year I’ve started using the Inline Fabrication Ultramount system, and recently decided to use this system across the board for pretty much all of my reloading […]

Norma is known for their high quality brass and ammunition, I’ve used Norma brass for precision reloading in calibers like .30-06 with great results.

.25-45 Sharps AR-15 Part 5: Precision Loads with the MEC Marksman

The quest for precision ammunition is something I never grow tired of. Well that is, if I’m dealing with a firearm of sufficient precision!

Light Up the Sky: Reloading and Shooting .308 Tracers

Since I was a boy I’ve been drawn to fire and fireworks. To me, the 4th of July wasn’t just a day of celebrating, it was an entire week of improvisational pyrotechnical “experiences”. Fast forward from 1985 to 2017, and I’m still just as excited about fire and destruction. So when friend Jim Findlay recently […]

There’s nothing like a solid piece of iron. Cast iron tools and machines are a lifetime investment, and I love it when I look at a tool and see “Made in USA”.
