  1. Winchester 1886 45-70 Safe Ammo

    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...
  2. Business Question

    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...
  3. .45 long colt

    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...

  5. How do y'all get cheap rifle ammo?

    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...
  6. ??? Fmj epoxy bullet ???

    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...
  7. Finding ammo at fair prices online?

    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...
  8. Anyone know about an extreme impact?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Anyone ever heard of Extreme Impact Ammo ( 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...
