Smith and Wesson is of course known for the 44 Magnum. Dirty Harry is said to have made the 44 Magnum the success it is today, even though he used a 41 Magnum in the movie. Sorry for the spoiler. This 629-4 is 1 in 500 made, Slab sided barrel, magna port, integrated scope rail […]
S&W 547 9mm Revolver Produced 1980 – 1985 A little over 10,000 were produced in two different models. This is the round butt variant of which about 6486 were made, making the 4-inch barrel square butt model even more sparse. It is rumored this was produced for the Palestinian and possibly the French police force. […]
Limited Production Run Total production number 174 total units chambered in 9mm. This pistol was also offered in .40 S&W (at least 200 examples) and .356TS&W (119 units) and these pistols were said to have been a “bone thrown” to any outfit in the stocking dealer program as a special to the smaller dealers that […]
Weights and measures. Stick around to the end for a surprise. mr.revolverguy
Are you putting yourself or your family at risk by carrying low budget 9mm ammunition? I went on a search for the most economical 9mm I could find locally. I know there may be better prices online but I wanted to see what local shops may be stocking. I would eventually come across a box […]
Today we are testing the preferred 45ACP ammunition of the local law enforcement community. Federal Premium 45ACP HST 230gr ammunition. This test provides valuable information, chronograph data, accuracy data, penetration and expansion data.
Watching the Alaskan Ballistics video of Underwood 10MM ammo testing in all semi autos struck a nerve and I had to break out the revolvers. Will the Underwood provide us with 700ft pounds of energy as advertised? How will the revolvers compare in Clear Ballistics Gel to the Glocks of Alaskan Ballistics in ribs and wet paper medium?
M1A Scope Mounting and Zero Most of the family here at The Reloaders Network know how difficult it is to mount a scope on an M1A and get it to stay locked in place. Well, I am testing my luck and skill. I used a Springfield Armory mount and followed the instructions exactly. It is […]
This Ruger Alaskan has been modified by a qualified gunsmith that machined my cylinder for moon clips. This Ruger Alaskan is capable of firing 45ACP, 45Super, 45Schofield, 45Colt, 454Casull. Accuracy is great as long as I do my part with all rounds. Though it does show very low velocity with factory 45ACP and my 45ACP […]
Very Rare S&W 940 Chambered in .356 TSW According to the S&W Catalog there were only 300 of these revolvers ever made. Not only are the revolvers and pistols hard to find, the 356TSW ammo is just as hard to locate. This makes it an extreme pleasure for me to be allowed to have this […]

What is 45AutoRim or 45AR The .45 AutoRim is a cartridge lucky to be in existence. Due to the lack of 1911’s as America prepared to enter WWI, Smith & Wesson and Colt produced revolvers chambered for the .45ACP. These new revolvers were designated as the 1917 by the Army. Even though the 1917 revolver […]
The Beginnings The M1A was designed by Elmer C. Ballance of the Springfield Armory Inc. in 1974. The AR-10 rifle was developed by Eugene Stoner in 1955 and was manufactured by ArmaLite. That’s right, the AR-10 is older than the M1A, you read it right. Confused yet? The M1A is the civilianized version of the […]
I purchased this Ruger Alaskan used many years ago, got a great deal on it, and when I went to fire some of my reloads I found out why. The Alaskan would only ignite 50%, if that, of my reloads. It proved to be 100% with Hornady factory ammunition. I called and also wrote Hornady […]
45 ACP Cutting Holes Like A Wadcutter Fellas I thought you would appreciate the below for us avid reloaders. During a 1997 big game hunting trip Col. Cooper and Lauck discussed creating something better as an all-around load and bullet for the .45 ACP 1911 pistol. Both Col. Cooper and Lauck recognized the issues of […]
As of this table top review the Kimber K6S has 125 rounds down the pipe.
Which of these would be your trusty bed side companion?
BREAKING IN THE LITHGOW 101 22LR Lately DM45 and I have been on journey to master 22LR at 100 yards; when I say master, I use that word lightly. I guess it really is more about bragging rights than mastering. Both he and I started this journey with Kimber 82G’s http://www.dayattherange.com/?p=6211 Unfortunately for me, DM45, […]
Get Out and Practice Charlie and James remind us we need to get out and challenge ourselves to remain proficient in defensive encounters. Mr.Revolverguy Sacrilege Not only am I trying the challenge with a semi auto, it is a 1911 chambered in 9mm. What have I done? Semi auto, 1911 chambered in 9mm, oh my, […]
You know you have the perfect wife and the best mother for your children when she wakes up in the morning and says, “I need to go to the range today.” I thought, it’s mothers day weekend, sure you don’t want to do something different, and expressed this to her. “Nope,” she says, “I want […]
Mission I recently took on a mission to create The Ultimate Defense Revolver capable of solving any personal defense encounter in North America. A great foundation for me to build upon was the S&W 629 Snubbie 44 Magnum from the Performance Center. Upgrade In evaluating this revolver I felt the only thing that really needed […]
