Review: Swiss Magazine Loading Rifles 1869 – 1958

Over the past months I have made an effort to acquire military surplus firearms. My purpose is to extend my involvement and participation in firearm ownership and recreational shooting, and to expand my understanding of world history.

Review: Lyman Shotshell Reloading Handbook 4th Edition

Lyman is….a quiet product and I am not sure why. My first reloading equipment was built around a Lyman turret press and dies and, as I recall, it did a great job producing jacketed and cast loads for the 30-30 WCF round. I’m not sure what happened to that setup, other than knowing it got…

Review: Mermelstein’s Guide to Metallic Cartridge Evolution
