Supersonic – Subsonic Handloading the 7.62×39 Ruger American Ranch Part III Sometimes, the only way to know is to do it yourself

Prologue 04/24/2022 – From my perspective, this project was enjoyable. Handloading is one of those aspects of firearm ownership that appears to hold more narrow of an appeal with each passing year.

Ruger’s Mini Thirty 7.62×39 Deer season is on its way

10/03/2021 Just ten more days until the official start of Fall and there are so many projects to wrap up before winter. Frequent, if not heavy rainfall, kept the porch deck wet. So all of the hours spent cleaning, deoxidizing and other prep work for staining and sealing 1,000 square feet of cedar boards will…
