Dutch Special Forces Adopt 300 AAC Blackout

I’m a major 300 AAC Blackout fanboy. I think the cartridge is perfect for my needs: killing things at about 50 to 100 yards using the shortest, quietest, and lightest gun possible. Apparently the Dutch special forces agree with my assessment as they have now announced that they are switching from their 5.56 NATO short […]

Question of the Day: Got Ammo?

The Big D and I were cruising around town, looking for 10mm ammo for an STI double-stack 1911 (part of Jon Wayne Taylor’s quest for the perfect truck gun). We rocked up to an Austin Academy Sports and headed for the firearms department. It was the department of no 10mm. And only two boxes of .22 per customer. […]

Sara Tipton: Mommy Life Meets Gun Life, Walmart Edition

My two-year-old son recently decided it would be epically hilarious to bust my sunglasses. I disabused him of that notion as gently as possibly – after he’d smashed the glasses to smithereens. With my left eye still healing, the summer sun bearing down on my California redoubt, and my Jeep-driving street cred in dire need of cool […]

Gun Experiment: .45 ACP From a Taurus Raging Judge

The Raging Judge from Taurus is an intriguing beast, a huge, heavy revolver that fires the powerful .454 Casull cartridge, and can also launch .45 Colt (.45 Long Colt) and .45 Schofield along with both 2.5-inch and 3-inch .410 shotshells. That versatility makes it interesting in its own right, but . . . .454 Casull […]

Review: Winchester Long Beard XR Ammunition

I love hunting. It’s hard to choose which game I like best: turkey, duck or sheep. But there’s no doubt which animal’s the hardest to harvest. For those of you who have never shot turkey before, it’s all about the calling. When a tom starts responding to your calls, you’re suddenly Dr. Doolittle. You’re having a conversation with another species. It’s […]

Kinetic Ammo…Cheap, But Is It Worth It?

By LB I recently had the opportunity to shoot a lot of ammo from Kinetic Range. In particular, their 9mm 115gr lead round nose that is coated with their proprietary “Hi-Tek” coating. This coating is applied in order to prevent fouling. Kinetic argues that this allows them to manufacture ammo that’s less expensive than plated […]

Question of the Day: My Gun, My Ammo. Yours?

I have a date with ShootingTheBull410 to test that exact gun with that exact ammo. So we’ll be able to check out the real-world veracity of Wilson Combat’s claim for their custom ammunition. Meanwhile, I fired my X-TAC Compact with 100 rounds each with Wilson and Gold Dot ammo at the range and discovered no […]
