    Powders, primers, bullets,.....prices and lack there of....and what substitutes?

    I went by Carter's Country, a big gun store in Houston with four locations, yesterday and zero powder and primers. The gun rack looked pretty thin too, about half the long guns as normal. I just looked on GB and it seems many places have powder available, might go this route.

    Military Surplus Rifles for Hunting

    After many PMs with @Shootist43 discussing the many fine qualities of the 1896 Swedish Mauser in 6.5x55, I recently purchased a sporterized one. The cock on close feature is very different feeling, so I might have this changed out. Other than that, sweet, soft recoiling rifle that is a...

    What have you been doing since you can’t go on Safari?

    @Hogpatrol tell us about the LR BR. Would be very interested in the details. Might do something like that when I retire. The shooting range I belong to has a 1000 yard range, which is a bit intimidating to look at.

    AR-type Rifles

    I've been very interested in reading this thread. Never owned an AR, but like many, are now thinking seriously of getting one while you still can. I have the over analysis paralysis when it comes to AR. Read a lot of articles. Also considered just getting a Ruger Mini 14. Let me ask this...

    338s are a great caliber

    I took my Ruger 338 WM to the range yesterday and shot some factory Hornady "Outfitter" 225 gr GMX. Shot at both 100 and 200 yards and my rifle seemed to really like them. Next trip to the range, I will chrony some and compare to my hand loads with Swift A Frames. Nice to have a factory ammo...

    Remington Declares Bankruptcy Again

    About 3 years ago, I received a few Bass Pro gift cards for Christmas. One day, I went to the store in Bossier City, LA and ended buying a Remington R51 in 9mm. I had read a lot of reviews and given that and the really low price, less than $300, I consider this pistol a really good value...
