Beat the High Cost of Ammo and Shoot More

Ammunition is in short supply, but high demand these days. As soon as it is delivered at the loading ramp, the line starts forming in anticipation of when it will hit the shelves. The high demand has also caused prices to follow, but that doesn’t mean we can afford to let our hard-earned skills suffer as a result. Recently, I came across a solution that will not only ease my ammunition demand, but it has taken my dry-fire practice to an entirely new level. LaserLyte has developed a new interactive target system with dual modes for reaction and training—the Reaction Tyme Target, TLB-RT.

SHOT 2013 Preview: Winchester .17 Super Magnum, .17 WSM

Rimfire is not for just plinking anymore. Just 20 grains at 3,000 feet per second—lets do this! I have never been a big fan of the .17 caliber in any form. If I want a varmint gun and caliber, I am going for the .223 Remington. That has now changed. That my friends is almost 400 ft-lbs from a 20-grain bullet. That is a serious varmint round in a rimfire cartridge no less. With the skyrocketing price of .223 everywhere, due to its many applications, a new varmint cartridge has come at the right time.
