.25-45 Sharps AR-15 Part 4: Forming .25-45 Sharps from .223/5.56 Brass

I don’t like to spend a lot of money on brass- and I know I’m not alone! One of the great things about the .25-45 Sharps cartridge is the fact that you can take everyday .223 Remington or 5.56 NATO brass and form it into 25-45 Sharps. You can even take previously fired .223 or […]

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

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).
