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 […]
300 Blackout Subsonic Sig 7.62QD Suppressor
Many before me have discussed 38 Special wadcutter, its accuracy, and its ability to be a crusher. Ed Harris documented the effects of the DEWC (full wadcutter) in 38 Special very well for us to reflect upon all of its goodness. This got me to thinking; if it was this good and still yet very […]
Reloader7.62 I hope this answers your questions to the conversation we were having over on Discord. mr.revolverguy
This is part 2 which contains chronograph readings and accuracy test of the 38spl HBWC. Part1 which contains the ballistic gel test can be viewed here: Part 1 mr.revolverguy
This is simply a collectors item for me because of the sentimental value and beautiful work by Turnbull.
Being an early adopter can be costly. This S&W Victory is one of the first off of the assembly line with a serial number under 1K. Had I known S&W would be coming out with threaded barrel shortly after release, I probably would have waited. Instead I purchased a threaded Volquartsen barrel because my suppressor was due any day.
Speeding up the brass sorting process of reloading so that I can get to what I enjoy most, chasing the most accurate rifle load and spending time on the range with revolvers. mr.revolverguy
After making the first video of 10MM chamber support, there were a lot of questions and requests for additional pistols included. After two years unfortunately I was able borrow a few pistols to fulfill the request. Your requests do not fall on deaf ears and I do try to answer all of the questions. By the way, you are going to want to stick around to the very end, probably the least expected winner and ending!!!!!!
I had a viewer who not only criticized the 130gr HST capability to be a bone crusher, he stepped up to the plate and sent what he believed to be the ultimate bone crusher. I am considering a way to test this other than ballistics gel. Possibly 1×6’s with modeling clay sandwiched between each board. […]
Teaser Video. Loaded up some 357 Magnum DEWC Double Ended Wadcutter of Full Wadcutter. We are going to shoot them across the chronograph attempting to achieve speeds of 1000fps to 1200fps. This is the joy of reloading as I have never seen this done before with 357 Magnum. I have shot many 38special wadcutters downrange […]
What did you do in your reloading room today? My Son and I reloaded a few 38 Special Wadcutters bullets produced by Berry’s. In this video we test them in Gel for self defense purposes. Fun experiment to see if you can replicate Federal Micro HST 38 Special +P with a Berry’s Hollow Base Wadcutter […]
This is Episode #2 in the 300Blkout Journey Testing. Unfortunately in this test I ended up destroying a GoPro Hero4 UGH. I was testing with my friend’s MCX SBR and suppressor. This is a nice balanced setup for up close and personal work. He had to wait almost 15 months for the US Government to […]
All the discussion about case prep on Discord and the video posted earlier made me want to share what it looks like for me. Long before case prep centers were popular I had some pieces built for me that I believe will last a lifetime. The creativity and engineering seen here on TRN sharing the […]
I got a package from Loads of Bacon of his world renown coated and bacon lubed bullets. Normally I load my medium velocity 357 Magnum rounds with HS-6. Just upon completing some 10MM testing with BE-86 and like the performance and velocity I was seeing with it I decided to use BE-86 in 357 Magnum.
Those looking for a more portable friendly, cost effective, universal rest to truly test the firearms capability, look no further than the Mulit Caliber Ransom Rest. mr.revolverguy
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.
I was able to score some 130gr Federal HST Wadcutters used in Federal Micro HST 38 Special +P self defense ammo. I have tested the 38 Special +P and it performs really well in Clear Ballistics gel. My curiosity lead me to perform this test with 357 Magnum as there is very little data available […]
I changed the grips on the Kimber double action only because of the wild ride caused by full powerhouse 357 magnum. After changing the grips I visited the range to see just how the Kimber K6 would perform compared to it’s younger brother the K6 double action only and a S&W386PD Scandium Frame, mr.revolverguy
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 […]
Penetration, expansion and velocity test of the Underwood Ammo 10mm 150gr grain Nosler JHP using Clear Ballistics Gelatin. 10MM is often thought of as a hunting cartridge only. I was looking for a self defense round in 10MM that would not over penetrate and yet have great expansion. Advertised velocity of this ammunition on the […]
