    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hi all! I am thinking about pull the trigger on a Ruger Gunsite Scout .308 18" stainless (Model 6822). The reason why I am posting this is just to see if I am missing anything out there that is better than the GSR for what I need, before I drop almost a grand on it. My use case for this rifle...
  2. Ruger and Ammo jamming

    I have a Ruger 10/22 Rifle and a Ruger Mark IV pistol. If I use CCI brand ammo I have no issues with either gun. If I use any other brand of ammo, in either gun, I get a jam about every third or fourth shot. Anybody else having this issue?
  3. Turn NEW bolt rifle into OLD military style rifle

    Hi all, I am new to his forum. I am wondering about the feasibility of turning a newer rifle like a Ruger M77 (Hawkeye, GSR, etc.) into a Kar98 or Yugo M48 lookalike. I really love the look and feel of old Mausers, but 8mm is drying up and I am not a reloader. Additionally, I am not so...

  6. Reloading 9mm bullet bulge in shell

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    When I press the precision (brand) bullet into the shell, I see a bulge on the side of the shell. It appears the bullet did not go in straight.

  8. My new Ruger LC9 safety

    I'm about to be stationed in California, so when I bought my handgun I wanted to make sure it was loaded with all the superfluous safety features that California requires. I chose the Ruger LC9.

    I'm getting into 44 magnum handloads very soon and being the lazy individual that I am, I just want one or two bullets for the Ruger Redhawk.
