I'm a big fan of CCI, but I second jaia's experience. My 'testing' is certainly non-scientific and I've shoot all of 50 rounds of the CCI copper, but they were terrible. I figured there must be a...

I agree with your co-worker, Federal Bulk 550s from Walmart is a good general purpose round. I bet I've shot ~5 bricks this year thru a revolver, and a couple of rifles. I have never had any...

Yep, I guess I'm one of the "new generation" being in my late-30s. In fact after reading the G&A mag, I'm seriously interested in getting one of those Win Wildcats. Don't get me wrong, there's a...

+1 for Ruger's GP100 .22 I bought one in January and I can't stop shooting it. The full size virtually eliminates recoil. I'm far from a great handgun shooter, but I can rapid fire, double action the...

For me it's the leading. I find TBs are just as accurate as any bulk pack ammo found at Walmart. But after not more than 50 TBs the bullets start to tumble. Literally go thru targets sideways. Any...
