The load density formula has provided excellent results for handloaders for many years. The main reason is simply that the load density formula works without fail. Eighty-five percent density is just about ideal, but let’s look at how reloaders have come to that number.

Purchasing an AR-15 rifle was far simpler when the only choice was Colt. Later, we had Armalite and a few others. Today, I cannot count the makers. Some are genuine manufacturers and others are small operators putting together rifles from outsourced parts. As long as the parts are high quality, that is fine. There is

Choosing the best 9mm is about as personal of a decision as finding the best pizza. With dozens of manufacturers, hundreds of models, and thousands of configurations, there just isn’t really a “best,” just a “best for me.” However, that doesn’t mean all 9mm pistols are made equal. There are some that stand head and shoulders above

As the dog days of summer wind down, most of us who venture afield in search of game and fowl can’t help but look forward several weeks to what has become, in many places, a national holiday—the opening of bird season. Most seasons open with dove and some early goose season. Picking the right load

While Beretta has brand loyalty, the piece must stand on its own merit. Good sights and good control placement are features of the new Beretta APX pistol. I

Seasoned preppers have storage solutions and creative ways to store food and supplies. Some have root cellars, basements, hidden rooms,storage sheds and even underground bunkers. Those who are just starting out always have questions about storage solutions. There are plenty of people who live in small spaces with little room to store a six-month supply

Some years ago, a company came out with a line of firearms sights based on the old English Express sights. These sights are not intended for target-grade accuracy, but to allow the shooters to quickly get on target and get a hit. Designed to give professional hunters a fighting chance against a dangerous charging animal,

I have used most of the popular old west calibers at one time or another, including the .32-20 and .41 Colt. Some have more merit than others. My favorite, hands down, is the .45 Colt. I began shooting long before Cowboy Action Shooting became popular. Most of us loaded for economy and with a certain

It does not matter if you are a part-time prepper who struggles to stash enough food for the next 72 hours or you are a tried and true, die-hard prepper who stores a three-year supply of everything you need in a custom designed underground bunker.

Unfortunately, we can cover them all, but this article is a good primer. If you are not fortunate enough to call yourself a Texan, at a

Gun control proponents, including some in the press, experienced a couple of embarrassing setbacks last week, thanks to a report from the Transportation Safety Administration, which was covered by CBS News, and an editorial in the Walla Walla Union Bulletin relating to an anti-gun-rights initiative in Washington state. This 3D revolver and five rounds of .22 Magnum ammunition were

A few years ago, Ruger introduced a well made and nicely finished Government Model 1911 .45 ACP. The SR1911 has earned a reputation as an excellent value for its modest price. But Ruger did not stop there. Winchester PDX +P loads provide excellent protection. A few years later, Ruger introduced a Commander version. The standard

I am the first to admit that factory ammunition has improved considerably during the past three decades. Consistency, accuracy, and performance are better than ever. This is largely due to the pressure put on factories by handloaders. Today, a handloader can produce more accurate ammunition than the factory. This round-nose bullet is designed for close

A safe, strongbox, coffer, vault, trap, hidey-hole—you can call it what you like, but essentially you’ll be describing a secure box used for securing valuable objects against damage from fire. Throughout history, several companies boasted they had created the ultimate safe. A safe so secure, no one could break into it. Several crafty criminals proved them wrong;
