Reader Comments of the Week

“Excellent article! I acquired a Charter Arms Mag Pug XL in. 41 Remington magnum (a) few months ago. Not fun with full power loads. Cast bullets and 5gr. of Bullseye allow me to practice without pain. I do carry factory full-power magnums when I walk the dog in the woods, though. We have a feral hog problem in the area and I am too old to run away.”

– SALTY, in response to Magnumitis: When the Gun Is Too Much

“Always buy ammo when it goes on sale. It’s not like it’s going to spoil and you never know what the gov’t will come up with to restrict your purchase.”

– JOEFOAM, in response to Ammunition: To Stockpile or Not To Stockpile?

“Great article!!! I work in the aviation industry, where most things are torqued. I ofter read about trq’ing the barrel nut to 35 ft-lbs. However, most commonly used tools are adding length to the tool, thus creating an improper trq. on nut. Nice add with the equation, by the way!”

– DENNIS SMILLIE, in response to 3 Essential Parts of Any AR-15 Barrel Install
