RCBS Dies from 1968, Will They Work? (30-30)

Gavin handed me an old set of RCBS dies in an equally vintage cardboard box. He had gotten the 1968 set from a friend and tasked me with cleaning them up and reloading some 30-30 ammunition. I think he knew that my RCBS set dates back to 1974 and I would enjoy the project.  Disclaimer […]

What Rifle Action is Best for Hunting (Bolt, Semi, Pump, Lever, Single-Shot)?

When many think of a hunting rifle, they first think of a bolt action. Are other action types viable for hunting? Absolutely!  Bolt action rifles can be excellent for a wide range of hunting, but they’re not the only rifle type in the hunting fields.

TESTED: 357 Magnum Hornady 140 grain FTX Bullets

The 357 magnum cartridge has been around for a rather long time. It was developed in the 1930’s by Elmer Keith, Phillip B. Sharpe, and Douglas B. Wesson. This group intended to make a high-velocity revolver cartridge which could pierce automobile bodies and early ballistic vests. The 357 magnum has since established a good track […]

TESTED: Henry Big Boy All-Weather (357 Magnum)

Henry recently shipped us […]

Bear Hunting A-Z

Have you ever been bear hunting?  Both Gavin and I have successfully taken bears. There’s something about a bear that adds a little spice to a hunt, perhaps it’s knowing they can be dangerous. I thoroughly enjoy bear hunting. It can be challenging, any adult bear is generally a trophy worth taking, the meat can […]

TESTED: Hodgdon LEVERevolution Powder

If you want more zip from your lever action 30-30, seriously consider loading with Hodgdon’s LEVERevolution powder! Combining LEVERevolution with Hornady’s pointed Monoflex and Flex Tip bullets results in ammunition that has a higher velocity and flatter trajectory than conventional 30-30 cartridges.  Disclaimer Ultimate Reloader LLC / Making with Metal Disclaimer: (by reading this article […]

30-30 Subsonic Loads with Berry’s 150gr Plated Bullets!

A lever gun isn’t always something you’d think of as subsonic. Just for fun, we loaded the 30-30 Winchester to subsonic velocity for plinking. This cartridge is already fun to load and shoot anyway — these loads make it even more fun. Disclaimer Ultimate Reloader LLC / Making with Metal Disclaimer: (by reading this article […]
