Perfect Primer Seating with Frankford Arsenal

Though priming a large number of cases can be taxing, many prefer handheld priming tools because the handloader can feel the primer being seated into the primer pocket.

25-06 Mule Deer Barnes TSX Hunting Success

I first heard about Barnes bullets in the 1980s and by the 1990s, they were well-known and renowned for hunting. Copper bullets are different than lead core bullets.
