IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE
June 13, 2013—ALL Thompson/Center Arms ICON®, VENTURE® and DIMENSION™ rifles manufactured before June 13, 2013.
The biggest fixed expenses when getting into the gun game are usually firearms, then optics, or sometimes the other way around. But over the lifetime of a platform — rifle, shotgun, handgun, doesn’t matter — the biggest expense is almost always ammo. Accordingly, stories focusing on ammunition use, tuning, and suitability are favorites of the Cheaper Than Dirt! Chronicle community. Here are the most-read articles we’ve run in the Shooter’s Log that have to do with ammunition choice and performance:
Winchester 5.56mm M855 62-Grain Pene
Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling one (1) lot of its 5.56mm M855 62 Grain PENE centerfire rifle ammunition.
In October 2010, CNBC broadcasted a report titled “Remington Under Fire” as a segment in their nightly news program. The segment alleged that the Remington 700 bolt-action rifle has a defective fire control group. Senior Correspondent Scott Cohn reported that Remington 700s could fire immediately when the bolt is closed, or discharge with the safety catch on. A series of videos by Remington responded to the allegations in the report, and debunked some of the claims CNBC made. Scott Cohn still won a Gerald Loeb Award, the highest honor in business journalism, for the “Remington Under Fire” story.
