I've been a 17 Rem shooter since the early 1970's, so the 17-223 never really caught my eye. That said, its a great cartridge that allows for good use of existing 223 Rem...

Just for future reference. Brass that is slightly mis-shapen and maybe a bit tough to chamber will remove/eject just fine from the rifle once fired, and the brass is not hurt or weakened in any way....

Without a doubt, the current barrels are hit and miss in terms of quality. My definition of a "quality rifle" as I used it above includes a good action mated to a good barrel in a good stock that a...

Bill, about the only time that I buy factory ammunition is to shoot a box through a newly purchased "old" rifle to check its condition before I use my own hand loads in it.

The biggest knock on the 6.5 Rem Mag as a hunting cartridge since it came out years ago was the fact that long 6.5 bullets had to be seated down below the case neck into the powder area, hence...

If I could only have one big game rifle for North American big game - minus Grizzlies - it would be a 264 Win Mag. I currently own two of them. Second choice would be a 7MM Rem Mag.

Its great to see them backup and running, albeit not at full speed just yet. Chris seemed pretty committed not too long after the fire to rebuild.

Just for the record, I too grew up in my early years extremely close to a field littered with pd mounds where I used a 22 LR exclusively to shoot them in my younger life. In my later life as an...
