Meet Daryl Colvin, the Backyard Ballistician. Today he works his magic with a difficult project.....9mm Luger and dead soft lead bullets. His solution surprised us.
Charles Schwartz is a noted expert on terminal ballistics and the author of Quantitative Ammunition Selection. If you have ever wondered if ultra light, ultra fast bullets are the way to go in a 9mm Parabellum, Chuck has the answer.
Dillon Precision's Ron Colvin shows the simple steps needed to make a Bullet-to-Lands gauge. This simple trick will help you make you a better handloader.
Kevin Newberry tests the 124 grain RMR bullet in his quest to find the perfect 9mm Para load. The data is surprising.
Not as in a boxing tournament, but my long overdue report. I believe that I mentioned in an article past that I would be focusing on this for a while. The sojourn has had some interesting side trips into discovery as well.
Following up on Shea's Survival Arsenal, Bart looks at Suppressed, Downloaded, and Combat loads for the .38 Special, .308 Winchester, .223 Remington and the 12 Gauge shotgun.
Write to us with your ballistics and shooting questions. Dear Labby is here to help.
Jeremy Brown had an accidental double charge. It left an impression on him and his Smith and Wesson 329 as well.
We publish our maximum loads with both their velocity and pressure. If you are getting the same velocity as our test loads you also have the same pressure (given a similar barrel length). Higher velocity equals more pressure. The two references go hand-in-hand. If you want to know more about the pressure of your pet load, buy a chronograph. They are a must for serious handloaders.
