    Rambling Thoughts About the 350 Legend by Greg Ritchie I like the 35 caliber. I was at first excited to see a new 35 caliber cartridge enter the market. That interest quickly waned. Why? First, Winchester opted for something other than a .358 bullet. This made absolutely no sense to me. The...

    Reduced Loads for Rifles by "histed" Why reduced loads in a rifle? After all, in today's market, if I want a softer shooting rifle, I replace my 7mm Rem Mag with a 7mm-08, right? Why bother experimenting with turning a 30-06 into a 30-30? And if I DID want to do that, how is it done? Well...

    Rambling Thoughts on the 30-30 Winchester by Greg Ritchie The rimmed cartridges have always held a special allure for me. Probably because I have always liked single shot rifles. A 22 Hornet, 30-30 Winchester, a 45-70 Government and a H&R Handi Rifle and I was ready to take on the world, or at...

    Anyone have a firearm that got away? That one special weapon that you wish you never got rid of. Weather you sold it cause you thought it was crap or just needed the cash. What was the one that got away? Post picks if you have them. Mine was a Remington Viper 22. Thanks for reading.

    I'm talking "Tactical" rifles, you know the ones I'm talking about. The rifle that has a scope, red dot sight, laser sight, folding grip and 12 flashlights. I know a person that has one of these rifles (his only has 11 flashlights) and he is so proud of what he calls his home defense rifle. Do...
