Re: I have an AR. I also have lions and tigers and bears. Oh

Mike, How do you fail to kill a boar with a .30-06? Also you should probably go look up some pictures of what 5.56mm does to flesh before saying it leaves a small wound channel and does not disrupt the flesh. The same way you put a 300 grain .375 rum completely through both shoulders and walk up to...

Re: reloading exclusively for HD/hunting make sense?

If you go to court, it won't be due to the type of ammo used, and it won't cost you one penny more for a lawyer. Exactly. And frankly if you own too many firearms and like to shoot too much then for most folks loading your own is the only viable course of action. As regards defensive ammunition it ...

Thanks for the link. They also have Czech-made Sellier & Belloit 12 gauge 250-round cases at a good price - does anyone have personal experience to pass along regarding the quality of that ammo? http://www.sgammo.com/product/12-gauge/special-purchase-250-round-case-12-gauge-12-pellet-00-buckshot-27...

Re: reloading exclusively for HD/hunting make sense?

hunting is great, but I'd think twice about using handloads for HD out of an AR. I've seen too many people have spectacular ammo failures in training classes with handloads, almost universally they don't put a hard enough crimp on the case mouth, and end up with bad bullet setback when they run the...

Re: I have an AR. I also have lions and tigers and bears. Oh

10mm and .357 magnums are both considered just fine defensive weapons for killing bears that attack you on a trail. A 5.56mm is more powerful than either. If I am shooting Smokey from 300 yards away while he is trying to catch some salmon, I totally agree that a weapon chambered in a hunting calibe...
