We know that we should be armed at all times where lawful. When enjoying the great outdoors, we advocate carrying a powerful side arm which can stop a large predator. We also realize that not everyone is going to purchase and learn to use such a gun.
I like both single-action and double-action revolvers for hunting, however when carried for self-defense from bear attack, there is a pretty strong consensus that the double-action revolver is the better choice. Since bear attacks invariably occur with incredible speed, there is a very considerable possibility that the attacking bear will reach the shooter before he has had an opportunity to effectively deploy his sidearm. If that does occur, it is generally believed that a double-action revolver offers the shooter a better chance of prevailing since it can be fired by simply pulling the trigger.
Terril wants to know which is better, 10mm Auto vs. USA — - Ammoland. Since its development in the s, the 10mm found sudden popularity only to stagnate and shrink, but now the 10 is back with more pistols and ammunition than ever before.
We started in to offer competitively priced specialty and bulk ammo. Midsouth offers some of the best prices on pistol bullets from great brands like Hornady, Berger, Nosler, Sierra, Berry's and more! Ammo for a SmithM and P 9mm?
Log in or Sign up. Do any of you do expansion or penetration testing of your rounds either factory or handload prior to hunting with them? If so, what do you use as a testing media, and how far away are you placing it from your rifle?
Ballistic Gelatin Tests. As part of the event, Winchester conducted an on-site ballistic gelatin demonstration of their PDX1 Defensive ammunition line. Rob Pincus of the Personal Defense Network was on hand to run the guns.
When choosing a home defense handgun, rifle, or shotgun, the gauge, caliber, and load are important considerations. If you are in a crowded area, this is important. Or does it?
I almost hate to open this can of worms due to the urban legends, misconceptions and delusions surrounding the topic. Many gunwriters, defensive trainers and Internet experts have proclaimed they know the answer. When it comes to defensive-handgun cartridges and ammo, I have preferences and biases.
Written by: Greg Ellifritz. The data is useful. The best way to reduce overpenetration is to hit what you are shooting at.
A hollow-point bullet is an expanding bullet. It is used for controlled penetration, where over-penetration could cause collateral damage such as aboard an aircraft. In target shootingthey are used for greater accuracy due to the larger meplat. Although a pointed bullet has a higher ballistic coefficiency BCit's also more sensitive to bullet harmonic characteristics and wind deflection, thus making hollow point bullets consistently more accurate and predictable.
