Handgun Cartridges — A Retrospective Look

The explosion in handgun choice, and the proliferation of handgun calibers and loads, is immensely interesting. Whether you wish to use a certain caliber and load or not, each is intriguing. However, did you know that the popular cartridges of today fill the same basic niche in the same relation to others since Sam Colt codified the pocket, belt, and holster pistol.

Free From Hornady Ammunition

As much as you would like to think that meant free ammunition from Hornady, I am sorry to say that is not the case, but it is almost as good. While the ammo may not be free, Hornady’s new ballistic calculator is free. And, with more shots on target you’ll be hitting more targets with less ammunition, so it’s as close to free ammunition as you’re likely to get.

Some years ago, I used ELEY ammunition when firing rimfire silhouette competition with my 8 3/8-inch barrel Smith and Wesson K-22—the results and performance were excellent.

If you are looking for the latest in ammunition offerings, look no further than for big game this fall. Granted, it is not out today, but it will be soon.

Range Report: The 7.62 x 25mm

I have to admit to a number of rather odd stablemates resting in the safe alongside my 1911, SIG, and HK handguns. These firearms may have a historical or mechanical interest, or they may simply be fun to use and fire. The 7.62 x 25mm pistols are among the most interesting.
