If you wish to see how much money you save handloading, use this nice little tool here:
Here is the calculation I did for my .223 handloads:
8lbs of powder @ $170 (I got 8 pounds of CFE223 a year ago for $168)

Although Zimmerman is getting torn up by our guilty-until-proven-innocent society, he continues to make bad choices. Or maybe he isn't and his wife is just nuts.
Regardless, I could barely read this article without spontaneously vomiting...

My dad likes to use H4831SC in 260 with 129gr Hornady SSTs but I just purchased a pack of 120gr Barnes TTSX and want to try some experimental loads.
Any advice? Power choice? Velocity to load to? I'll be making a few test batches and bringing them to the range on Friday.

My cousin let me borrow his rifle so I went ahead and did a couple reviews.
Sorry for the dim lighting. This is my brother's camera and kind of sucks at doing videos. But I'll be trying to replace it soon.

| Outdoor Board|| The NRA surprised me! - bapple on 9/12/13 at 1:06 pm|
I got a random package in the mail today. It said on the box it was promotional, and I assume it's for NRA instructors.
They sent me a free 1911 training pistol with CT grips mounted on them. These appear to be genuine 1911 CT grips for any 1911. That's pretty awesome as a free gift.

| O-T Lounge|| Can you drive in the rain without your wipers on? - bapple on 9/4/13 at 7:19 pm|
If you're going over 30mph in the rain and still depend on your wiper blades for visibility, you have a dirty and untreated windshield.
If water doesn't bead like it does on the picture on the left, you need to polish your windshield and apply Rain-x to it.

Dear Wise OB members and contributors,

You get some better viewing of the RMR in this one. Towards the end I was able to get the camera to focus on the reticle so you can see it pretty clearly.
I love this damn gun. So easy to shoot and the reflex makes picking up targets super fast.
