AmmoForSale.com, Part 2

Back in 2012, I was contacted by AmmoForSale.com and asked if I’d be willing to review some ammunition. I said yes and then promptly got busy with life. Well, at long last, here is the review!

As a quick reminder, this is Fiocchi .357 Magnum 125gr SJHP.

We were shooting it out of my Smith & Wesson 686, with a 4″ barrel, and my dad’s Marlin model 1894c.

My past experience with Fiocchi it’s that it’s loaded hotter than other types of factory ammunition. However, the 686 handled the recoil just fine and the Marlin was a joy to shoot.

Deer Hung Marlin

The only hang up that we had was with the Marlin. If the action was not cycled quickly, the front of the round would catch on the upper lip of the chamber, deforming the lead. Greater than usual force was then needed to chamber the round. However, when cycled quickly, no hang ups were experienced.

Whatever the use, Fiocchi .357 Magnum 125gr SJHP from AmmoForSale.com is a solid buy.

The Scout Rifle

From The Firearm Blog:

An irony of the Scout Rifle is that it’s a late 20th century weapon designed for the 19th; a sort of modernist homage to the romance the post-war generations have had with Brand’s Old West, Kipling’s India, and Conrad’s Africa.

Sacred Cows

Continuing the ongoing debate of 9mm vs. .45 ACP, I received an email from AmmoForSale.com today regarding their contribution to the discussion.

I’m writing today to let you know about something pretty cool we just finished related to the great 9mm vs. 45 ACP debate that I think you’ll really like.

We quoted some fellow shooters and coded some unique tools to help folks understand the case for both 9mm and .45 ACP as the best caliber ever!

If you get a chance, I’d love to hear your thoughts – the case for 9mm is here:

The case for .45 ACP is here:
http://www.ammoforsale.com/.45-acp-ammo-for-sale#best

We really worked hard to make these a great definitive guide. If you think it’s of value, we’d love it if you shared it with your readers to help spread the word!

So here it is. Both articles are entertaining and pretty much encapsulate the debate. I carry and shoot a .45. I’m not a competition shooter, I’m not a large voice in the online firearms community. I’m just your average Joe. My contribution to the debate is, you shoot what you like and I’ll shoot what I like.

Enjoy!

Conditional Rights

“The right to keep and bear arms is not conditional. It is based on sound, moral principles, which do not change with the weather or with any other circumstances as some would have us think.”

From Joe.

 

Must Read

Tim at Gun Nuts Media has written a must read article. The Idiocy of “Outdated” discusses Michael Bloomberg’s idiotic comments about the Bill of Rights being outdated and needing to be rethought.

Go. Read. Now.

Random Gun Video

I don’t remember how I came across this video for the Blaser R8 rifle, but I liked it so I’m sharing it.
