Converting Weaver Bases to Accept Picatinny Scope Rings

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 […]

Light Up the Sky: Reloading and Shooting .308 Tracers

Since I was a boy I’ve been drawn to fire and fireworks. To me, the 4th of July wasn’t just a day of celebrating, it was an entire week of improvisational pyrotechnical “experiences”.
