Looks like I opened a can of worms with yesterday’s post regarding the 50/200 yard zero. The amazing discussions that followed prompted me to look into and compare several zero distances including 25, 36, 50, 100, and 200 yard zeros.
Ever have someone suggest to zero your rifle at 50 yards because that will provide a secondary zero at 200 yards? Ever heard a broken clock is right twice a day? Let’s take a closer look at the mythical 50/200 yard zero.
A few days ago, I wrote a post explaining why I don’t care for BDC style reticles. Figured I’d take the opposite approach and attempt to explain why I like Christmas tree reticles so much.
I’ve found bullet drop compensation, or BDC, reticles to be a really neat concept. Paired with the right rifle and ammo combination they really shine at letting the shooter engage multiple targets quickly. Even so, I still don’t like them.
I recently learned about SOCOM’s latest Advanced Sniper Rifle and the three cartridges that the rifle will support. Like any other avid ballistics nerd, I couldn’t resist comparing the ballistics between the 308 Win, 300 Norma Mag, and the 338 Norma Mag.
2020 has limited my opportunities to try out and write about new firearm experiences, so instead I’m writing about firearms I’ve tried in the past and haven’t written about. Here is a bit about the Daniel Defense DD5 V1 (an AR-10).
One of the most important fundamentals of pistol shooting is sight alignment. A red dot sight (RDS) provides a lot of benefits but requires a different approach to sight alignment fundamentals. KR Training’s course addresses the RDS fundamentals.
Hands down, AR-15 rifles are great. The Daniel Defense DDM4 rifles are an amazing top shelf AR-15 option.
A few weeks ago I shared my wife’s top 3 handgun list. That list generated a bit of discussion and folks got curious about her favorite rifles. Hence, my wife’s top 3 rifles list.
My love affair with the VP9 continues. Changing things up with a little RMR action has only made things a little spicier. I am looking forward to future dates at the range and at competitions with it.
