    When it comes to varmint hunting, there are few rounds that can compete with the popularity and success of the 223 Remington. Since its release in 1964 and adoption by the US military, the 223 Rem has been nigh untouchable as the go-to option for plinking, long range target shooting, and varmint...

    When it comes to the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, there is no denying that the 223 Remington and 5.56x45mm NATO are the kings of the centerfire cartridges. As it is the standard issue ammo for the U.S. military and an incredibly potent varmint round, the 5.56/223 Rem is by far the most popular...

    The 223 Remington and 450 Bushmaster are two centerfire rifle cartridges that couldn’t be more dissimilar from each other, except that they are fired from the most popular semi-automatic rifle in North America…The AR-15. Although the 223 Remington has seen widespread success as a varmint round...

    Like many a 2nd Amendment-loving teenager of my generation, I was introduced to the FN 5.72x28 via the Showtime television series Stargate SG-1. Fans of the show will remember how the main characters, played by Richard Dean Anderson and Amanda Tapping, would travel across the galaxy battling...

    When the topic of varmint hunting or controlling coyotes are brought up on shooting forums or gun store counters, it doesn’t take long for the debate over 223 vs 22-250 to come boiling to the surface. As two of the most popular centerfire rifle cartridges for dispatching furry nuisances at long...

    Many shooters will assert there is no difference between .223 Remington and 5.56x45mm NATO and that you can safely fire both from the same rifle. Others will contest that assertion, “The two ammo types are different!” But which one is right? Who is correct? Although the external dimensions of...

    When it comes to debates at your local gun store, your grandfather’s porch, or around the fire at your deer camp, there is none more heated than 223 vs 308. The 223 Remington and the 308 Winchester are the two most popular centerfire rifle cartridges across North America, Europe, and the world...
  10. AR-15 Talk
    I have always loved the AR platform, and within the last 12 months purchased my first AR15. I have no complaints. It functions as one would expect and I've had no issues with it. Recently, however, I have been very interested in hog hunting, and hunting in general. While I know there are rounds...
  11. Reloading
    Hi All, I recently started reloading for 223. I am using FC brass and Hodgdon H4895 powder. Hodgdon lists the starting load at 25grns and max at 26grns. When I load the case with 25grns there is very little room in the case. I have measured out multiple times with a scale to make sure. I just...

    I am new and am gearing up to reload. I already own a Mini-14 and have a Lee press and 223 dies, etc... I will be acquiring an M1 Garand in the near future. I wanted to know if there are any powders that can be used in both cartridges (30-06 and 223/556) to good effect? Or is this an...

  14. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Obviously there are things you can do to improve a Mini's accuracy, like adding a strut, adding a stiffer top barrel brace/cover, new barrel, bedding, etc. 1. But can the AK 47/74 be made more accurate through these or other methods? 2. Is the standard Mini/Ranch as or more accurate than a...

    Scottsdale Gun Club touts the LMT as very reliable, but it sells for $ 1249. Aim.com sells the Spikes Tactical for $ 770. I'd like to buy from a bricks and mortar dealer so I can get quick service on any issues, but the price difference is an issue. Any opinions?

  19. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    In an earlier post I wrote about the fact I could not get my brand new Mini-14 to zero on the iron sights. Even with the rear sight peep drifted all the way to the right, it still shot a bit to the left of the bull. I packed it up and sent it back to Ruger on their dime. That was two weeks ago...
