Table top and range review of the Taurus Raging Hunter in .44 Magnum.
Excited to be able to test the Cutting Edge Bullets PHD 150gr 45ACP across the chronograph and into Clear Ballistics Gel. For the first time I test this round with a winter jacket over the top of the gel. What do you think of the performance? mr.revolverguy
When mother nature dares you to go to the range...
This is a chronograph and clear ballistics test from a short barrel 2in Ruger Alaskan. Then we move to the other end of the spectrum with a 16in barrel, Rossi Lever.
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 […]
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 […]
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?

The 45 Colt was designed in 1872, making this one old cartridge. The granddad of the Old West at one time was one of the most venerable cartridges known to man. Let's test a 225gr full wadcutter and a 230gr hollow point and see if the 45 Colt is still capable after 147 years of service and if it remains relevant to this day.
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 […]

STI was definitely thinking outside of the box when it created the Apeiro. So why discontinue it? Because the owner is parting ways with 40S&W he decided to keep this one and have the chamber reamed to 10MM. To reduce recoil and increase cycling speed, STI cut a large portion out of the top of […]
I could not pass up a rather rare opportunity to spend time on the range with a some what rare 1911 in the Springfield Armory 45 Super. This 1911 according to Springfield Armory was produced in Feb of 2000. It left the factory with two recoil springs a 16lb and 18.5lb the heavier for the […]
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 […]
Speeds Feeds and Ballistics At the 2018 Shot Show Speer released their 200gr 10MM ammunition. Over the past year it has received mixed reviews. Fanatics of 10MM have seen this ammo as nothing more than what 40S&W is capable of. Speer has seen a lot of positive press as well, this 10MM ammunition delivering the […]
Another episode of Speeds, Feeds and Ballistics this time with 40S&W. Much like the first video of testing 10MM through a pistol and carbine we put 40S&W through the same test. But this time I have a little bit of a surprise for everyone and no it is not the fact that I shot my […]
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
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 […]
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.
Smith and Wesson Victory Accuracy Test 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.

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 […]
The Ultimate Wheel Gun In the world of wheelguns, the word legendary comes to mind when talking about the Smith and Wesson 629 Performance Center 44 Magnum. Mention 44 Magnum to my sister and she immediately starts to quote detective Callahan from the movie Dirty Harry. For us wheel gun fanatics mention 44 Magnum and […]
