  1. Black Rifles
    I purchased an S&W M&P15 Sport 2 back in 2016 and have been using the same ammo since the get go (Tula .223 62gr FMJ Steel Case), with the very occasional Wolf ammo that my son would buy. Approx. 2K rounds of Tula & <100 Wolf rounds. Shot great right out of the box, 3” groups at 50 yards, open...
  2. Handguns
    It seems now that any 9mm reloading bullets have become just as scarce as primers. I luckily loaded up on primers and cases but am running low on bullets. If anyone knows of any sites or has any Info on where I can purchase some please help. I am already anticipating the smart remarks and...
  3. Big-Bore Lever Guns
    I am a huge Winchester fan and have several 1894s and and 1895, but I have been looking around of an 1886 in 45-70. I recently picked up a lot of ammo of various calibers and there was several boxes of 45-70 (45-70 GOV'T 300 DR RNFP COWBOY LOAD is printed on the box end), which from what I was...
  4. General Discussion
    Hey guys, I am considering purchasing an existing small web business that sells ammo subscription boxes (meaning you pay to receive 100-500 rounds every month). Before I purchase the site, I am trying to see if this is a good idea. Purely from a research perspective, not advertising, would this...
  5. Cowboy Loads and Guns
    I recently came into possession of a .45 lc revolver, super fun gun. My question is this, is it okay to shoot the solid lead cowboy loads? I've heard that the lack of a case causes lead to build up in the riffling grooves of the gun. Is this reality or just an old wives tail? standard lead is a...
  6. Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Figured for fun i would start a thread on what is your favorite .308 round, mine is the Federal powershock 150 grain loads, accurate and cost is not bad at around $20-$22 a box of 20.
  7. Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    How are y'all doing? For about a year, I've been budgeting about 25$ a week for 50 rnds of 5.56 every week. I decided that I'd be better off keeping that 25$ every week in my account to by bulk ammo at some point. I know of a few places to by bulk ammo, but I thought I'd ask about where y'all...
  8. Bullet Casting
    I've never done any reloading so I apologize if this is a stupid question but I recently read about a guy that melted the lead out of a fmj and filled the copper jacket with epoxy. He claimed that an epoxy 45acp left the muzzle at 2200fps. Iam curious if any reloaders here have ever tried such a...
  9. Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hey guys, I posted a bit ago in a now-closed thread about ammo shortages. I've been looking for 9mm and .223 which are getting ridiculously hard to find where I'm at. The local shortage forced me to get online to find ammo, and I can't believe some of the price-gouging out there. One of my...
  10. Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Anyone ever heard of Extreme Impact Ammo (xxx.xxx.xxx)? I hunt game and found that they sell Buffalo Bore at the lowest price (both online and in store). I plan to stock-up before season but want to know if anybody else can find a better rate than this. It's almost too good to be true, or...
