The dog is inspired by my own Maggie, a sixteen-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who happens to celebrate […]

(1) POUNDING AWAY AT IT. Although I’ll never carry this much British cash, I’m interested in the story: “New £50 note scientist nominations released”.  On the list are computing pioneers Alan Turing and Ada Lovelace, telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell and astronomer Patrick Moore.

The Truth About Guns

When it comes to long-range cartridges and rifles, the show tends to be focused on the little 6.5 Creedmoor and today’s newest paper-puncher/head-scratcher, the .224 Valkyrie.

I’m running a .243AI set up by Columbia River Arms (formerly Black Hole Weaponry) about a year ago. It’s a pre-chambered drop-in with a pretty tightly necked chamber set up by CRA. I’ve got it set at zero head space so between that and the Ackley Improved case there’s zero brass growth after 4-5 firings. […]

The Savvy Shooter

If you haven’t read them yet, check out Part 1 and Part 2! Mistake 3: The Rifle Should be Where Most of the Budget Gets Spent This is another common misconception. In fact, the most important part of a long-range shooter’s budget should probably be spent on the scope.  I’ve seen varying ratios when it […]
