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 […]
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.
Potent Hog Medicine? Is 357 Magnum 158gr at 1248fps from a 6inch barrel and 1489fps from a 16in barrel, leveraction at 75 yards or under potent hog medicine? Leave a comment and tell me what you think. Thanks Loads of Bacon for bullets. Dayattherange.com mr.revolverguy
300 Blackout Subsonic Sig 7.62QD Suppressor
Early Morning To Meet My Gunsmith, Then Off To The Range I introduced a good friend of mine to my gunsmith a few weeks back. He received a call earlier this week that his rifles and pistols were ready. So we got up early this morning and made the 45 minute drive north, picked up […]
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.

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 […]
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 […]
Reloading 6.5 Creedmoor with Reloader 15 Out on the range today I will test two different loads — loaded with Reloader 15 putting it up against Hornady Factory ammunition. This started to just find a light load for the medium range distance 100 to 300 yards with Reloader 15 and lighter bullets but my buddy […]
I decided to go ahead and do a quick overview of the new Frankford Arsenal IntelliDropper. I only published this because a few friends asked me for the video. I did not do a complete review demonstrating every single feature, I am exchanging emails with Frankford Arsenal asking if the drifting that I am seeing […]
Reloading 223: This video is long overdue. Almost a year ago I completed the OCW ladder test to find what I believe to be the most accurate medium range loads for two rifles. The intent is to have a stock of one load that I could rely on for target or varmint. The Rifles: 1. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
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.
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 […]

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 […]

The load I show in this video are safe in these revolvers but should be double checked against your favorite reloading manual. This […]
After making the first video, 45 Colt Old But Still Useful with the 45 Colt Buffalo Bore 225gr Anti Personnel round, I received a couple of emails asking if the full wad cutter of the Buffalo Bore would feed in a carbine/lever action. I decided this would make for good content. If I could get […]
This is simply a collectors item for me because of the sentimental value and beautiful work by Turnbull.
Table top and range review of the Taurus Raging Hunter in .44 Magnum.
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 […]
