MagnetoSpeed Sporter Chronograph: Unboxing, Overview, and Shooting with the AR-15

I have somewhat of a checkered history with chronographs. You may be familiar with the drill: setup the chronograph, try and work with the lighting you have, possibly setup supplemental lighting, and then try to avoid shooting the chronograph gates (don’t ask me how I know this).

Ruger Precision Rifle: Loading 6.5 Creedmoor with the Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron

It’s time to take the reloading for the Ruger Precision Rifle to the next level! I’ve been loading ammunition “factory style” (new brass) on the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP 5-station progressive, and now it’s time to go single-stage.
