Concentricity King: L.E. Wilson Chamber-Type Micrometer Bullet Seater

A wobbling football doesn’t fly very straight. In the same way, a wobbling bullet will not group well at range. There are two major factors in eliminating bullet “wobble”: stabilizing the bullet properly (a function of bullet weight and rifling twist rate), and bullet/case concentricity. In this article, we’ll focus on concentricity, specifically bullet concentricity […]

Taming the Beast: 500 S&W Special

Even Dirty Harry needs an occasional day off from the intensity of magnum handgun recoil. And I’m presuming that’s when he reaches for his box of 44 Special cartridges. Fast forward 46 years and today’s “most powerful handgun in the world” is even more intense: the 500 S&W Magnum. This is where 500 S&W Special […]

TriggrCon 2017: Rainier Ballistics Bullets

It’s a shame to have a collection of firearms that you don’t shoot often enough. Many things can get in the way of regular shooting, one of them being the high cost of ammunition. That’s where reloading comes in! But reloaded ammunition can still cost enough to put the brakes on shooting. That’s where plated […]

TriggrCon 2017: Freedom Munitions and X-Treme Bullets

Have you ever discovered a company in your “backyard” that you had no idea was so close? At TriggrCon 2017 I met Jansen Jones from Freedom Munitions, and learned that they were in driving distance from where I am located in Washington. Not only that, but Jansen told me all about HMT (Howell Munitions & […]

TriggrCon 2017: KRISS Vector and Defiance DMK-22

Like something out of a dream- that’s the best way I can explain the Industry Range Day at TriggrCon 2017. Sensory overload, too much to see and experience (for one day), and fun on another scale. One such highlight during the event was visiting the KRISS booth. There I saw something I’d only seen online: […]

Budget Precision .223: LEE Deluxe Challenger Kit Unboxing and Setup

Have you ever taken a “leap” hoping that things would work out, and then they did? That’s how this project (Budget Precision .223) has turned out so far. Would the TC Compass shoot as good as my other one in .308 Winchester? Could this scope live up to the reviews I read on Amazon? Yes. […]
