    What a difference a bullet makes...

    So I was at the range yesterday shooting test loads in my Creedmoor. Started with 144 gr. Berger Long Range Hybrid Target (who comes up with these names :confused:?) and VV N555, SD's were looking excellent across the entire range of charge weights, only one out of 10 was over 10, and 4 were...

    9MM - What's the difference (that makes the difference)?

    Wondering what the difference is in 115gr and 124gr (other than weight in grains)? I dont have a grain scale and some of my ammo was mixed, and try as I might, I cant seem to be able to figure out what difference 9 grains actually makes in the "real world"... And when, out of curiosity I put a...

    AR pistol brarrel length - 10.5" vs 8.5" big difference in terminal ballistics?

    I keep reading they say 10.5" should be the limit. Does 2 inches really make THAT big of a difference for an already neutered barrel?

    Difference in loading handgun compared to rifle.

    So I'm thinking that it's time to start reloading for my new 10mm "ghost gun". I've definitely got the hang of rifle. Is there anything that I should know? BTW this is a Glock 20 with a lonewolf match stock length barrel. Thanks James

    The difference between living in the city and the boonies...

    Took a walk up the road yesterday. One neighbor (the surgeon) was helping another neighbor with building his shop by using an excavator to move some drainage rock around. When that was done, the neighbor building his shop brought out his new deer rifle to show off. Another neighbor drives by...

    What Difference does it make ?

    Here's an oldie for shut ins. This is the real deal from the horses mouth. I'm surprised it hasn't been deleted on youtube. Maybe because it seems terribly boring.. But the information is real.. Reece Commission

    Patches do make a difference

    I had an opportunity to exercise my Matchlock Musket Sunday and verify P.O.A. of the new sight I had installed. I thought I would try some new patches. I have been using cut to size, "T" Shirt material. The new patches were 2" round, cotton, "Make-Up" pads. First, I seated the ball, (Marble)...

    223 vs 5.56 brass difference

    I don't own a rifle that fires these calibers but I know the general difference between the two. I happen to commonly collect tons of these brass from the range. And so for all you rifle owners who reloads these calibers, would you want a brass seller like me to separate the 223 vs 5.56 to sell...

    Is there a big difference between Unique vs Bullseye powder? 9mm Powder recommendation?

    I know these are two of the more popular powders, especially for 9mm. The cost between them are similar. For all you experienced reloaders who may know, is there much difference or advantage between the two? They must be different somehow, otherwise they would not be two separate powders. Also...

    How to tell difference between bull barrel and heavy barrel?

    Hi all, so I recently traded for another AR15. It is a Bushmaster XM15-E2S A2 style. My buddy told me it has a bull barrel on it. It is definitely a heavy barrel. I was wondering if anyone could explain how to tell the difference between a bull barrel and heavy barrel for the AR15? Thanks in...

    Weighing Bullets -- how much difference matters?

    I had a sweet hunting load developed for 6.5mm 140 gn Hornaday SSTs but it sounds like, at least from the place I usually buy my stuff, that those are getting replaced with 143 gn ELD-Xs. So I've been trying to develop a load for those bullets and just having a devil of a time. To give you...

    308 normal difference in case volume / thickness.

    I've exclusively been buying Nosler custom comp 175gr bthp ammo and reloaded it afterwards. I might have bought 168 gr once. But I'm not sure since I don't have the box any more. While checking the cases during the reloading process I found a 15gr difference in weight between 20 of the cases...

    Difference between AR pistol lower and Rifle lower

    This is probably not the right place but, for those who build, what is the difference between a lower used on a pistol and a rifle? Jack

    The difference between shooting at paper in UK and the USA - Pt 1

    To shoot a rifle or carbine in the USA, or most anything else for that matter, you need - 1. Your driving license. 2. Hard cash or a valid credit card. 3. To be 18 for a long gun and 21 for a handgun in most states, and 4. To be a law-abiding [non-felon] citizen of the USA. You can walk...

    AR15 Quality vs Crap: How do you tell the difference?

    This thread runs in a similar vein as @Ironbar's thread here. Though I've owned quite a few AR's over the years, my knowledge level doesn't extend far past basic cleaning and operation. I'd like to become more knowledgeable regarding the technical ins and outs of what makes components higher...
