State Your Case: 10mm Auto vs. .45 ACP

In my last State Your Case article, I talked about the 9mm vs. .40 S&W. The .40 got a raw deal in that discussion, but I did my best to defend it and make it as equal of a comparison as possible. Today we’re looking at two other titans of the automatic pistol world: the […]

State Your Case: .308 Win vs. .30-06

When people ask me about hunting cartridges and cartridges for general use, I seem to always gravitate towards two of the most popular rifle rounds ever: the .30-06 Springfield and the .308 Winchester. These two rifle cartrdges have a long and intertwined history, with the .30-06 being sort of like the .308’s father, in a […]

The Great Caliber Debate: .380 ACP vs 9mm

On January 30, 1948 a Hindu nationalist advocate by the name of Nathuram Godse secured his claim to infamy by carrying out an assassination. At 5:17 PM Godse used a Beretta M1934 he’d apparently stolen to shoot Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi in the chest – three times – point-blank. By doing this Godse sealed […]

Ammo Review: Buffalo Bore 9mm 95gr +P+ Lead Free

I’ve managed to get quite a bit of ammo testing done in the last few months.

State Your Case: 6.5 Creedmoor vs. 6.5 Grendel

The 6.5mm bore has enjoyed a steady increase in popularity in the United States in the last few years. Despite what some say, there is nothing new or revolutionary about it. There is no voodoo or magic that exists in modern 6.5mm cartridges that wasn’t first perfected in the World War era. What we have […]

Calibers for Beginners: 12 Gauge

Many a young child got their first taste of a ‘real gun’ when they put dad’s slug gun to their shoulder. The awakening, for so many poor, innocent younglings, came rudely. Every November I get to watch the little kids wearing puffy coats and gloves struggle to see through cheap scopes and hold steady while […]

Ammo Review: Black Hills .45 Colt RNFP

Black Hills Ammunition is known for producing some of the best cowboy action shooting ammo made today. I’m no gunslinger by any standard, but the quality, accuracy, and cool factor of the Black Hills Ammunition.45 Colt 250gr RNFP certainly makes me want to relive some of my favorite moments from the movies that I, and […]

Air Force M4 Carbines Fire . . . Empty Brass?

This photo of a military K-9 handler firing an M4 has been making the rounds on the interwebs over the past couple of weeks as comic relief on social media (including TTAG’s entertaining accounts) and as a generic stock photo for news articles. When you see it, you’ll probably laugh. An empty brass case appears […]

Ammo Review: Mid America Munitions 9mm 124gr Broadhead

Mid America Munitions is a company that most of you probably haven’t been introduced to. I hadn’t heard of them until a couple months ago when I was approached about taking a look at some of their ammo, in particular their Broadhead line. I’m naturally a skeptic of what, at a glance, appears to be […]
