Folks dabbling in long distance or precision rifle shooting will eventually need to get an actual muzzle velocity measurement for their cartridge and rifle combination. Otherwise, prepare to deal with the inaccuracy inherent with advertised velocities.
It’s time to add up to $25 worth of goodness to the budget survival kit. This month I am looking at items that provide cover, which offer some additional protection in survival situations.
A review on the Athlon Cronus BTR 4.5-29×56 FFP Riflescope is way overdue. Cliff notes: a superb large (and heavy) scope ideal for long distance precision shooting. Read on for details.
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.
For the third installment of the Building Survival Skills series of blog posts, I’m covering the basics of finding shelter and building temporary emergency shelters.
As a thank you for helping me surpass the 1K blog subscriber milestone, I’m holding a giveaway. Three lucky winners will win one Solatac Pocket Trauma Kit (PTK). Good luck!
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.
Personally, I think defensive pistol skills are the second most important survival skills to have (next to first aid skills). In this post, I’ll talk why I think that and how I recommend going about developing that skill set.
