Badger Ridge Industries comes through again, modernizing the breech plug system for the much-liked Ruger 77/50.
Write to us with your ballistics and shooting questions. Dear Labby is here to help.
Bob Shell works his magic with Blackhorn 209 in some very surprising cartridges.
Jim Waddell loads one of his favorites, the .222 Remington.
Dangerous game rifles are powerful. They are also tremendously accurate if you take the time to learn the tricks to manage recoil. John Noak offers his insights into handling the heavy hitters.
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.
If you shoot a lot, this little trimmer is worth its weight in gold.
Dear Labby, Can you give a little detail to the piezo transducer and it’s operation? How does it function? Where would you screw it into on the M1 Garand. The AR-15? The 1911? Thanks, Bill M.
Andrew Jarvis of Jarvis Inc., explains why the company does not endorse handloaded 5.7X28mm cartridges in their barrels.
Can you make two very different loads, one for heavy game and the other for small deer, work with just one scope setting? Yes you can and Dave Whitney is just the guy to explain how.
