    Bill's already touched on the answer here, and I'll second his call. The 1x9"s became popular when the Sierra 69 was THE heavy bullet for the .223. We've got a much better choice of bullets today,...

    Jim,

    I'm sure Eric will add to this when he has a chance, but I wanted to see that you get an answer here quickly. If I'm reading your question correctly, no we don't use multiple form dies for...

    Hey Pete,

    My pleasure I assure you. Seems like we all get comfy in our own little niche, and often don't see what else is going on in the firearms community. Since the ARs are under such intense...

    A word from die-hard member of the "pop" "pop" "pop" crowd; the ARs flat outshoot. I can't work up a thrill for blasting away like Pete describes either, but I've used the ARs in Service Rifle...

    Hi Jim,

    I'm not surprised at the observations you noted, and wouldn't dispute most of them. The two lines are held to the same QC specs, but there are some differences in the jackets, as you've...

    Charles,

    Specifically, the bullets you cited here are the new, thicker jacketed target bullets. There is absolutely NO truth to the rumor that these are only in 6mm and 6.5mm. We currently list...

    Hey Guys,

    Sounds like most of you already have the details on this, as several posters have already nailed it; the bullets designated as "Target" are made with a, new, thicker jacket, while those...

    Might save some time here; the 1,000 yard NRA target doesn't have anything close to a 2" X-ring. I'd have to look it up to be exact, but it's closer to 10", basically one MOA. The NRA HP targets run...

    Hi Johnny,

    Increasing your OAL by .055" isn't going to change a lot internally, but it's always advisable to work a load back up whenever you change a variable in the mix. In this instance,...
