On May 6 of this year, a buddy and I attended the SIG Freedom Days at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility near Phoenix, Arizona. This one-of-a-kind event was open to the public and allowed consumers to test-fire many of the firearms in SIG’s lineup, for a small fee of course. They also had demonstrations and discussions about the winner of the Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) trials, the MCX Spear (also known as the XM5 chambered in 6.8x51), the SIG LMG-6.8 (or the M250) and the SIG MG 338. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of this system is the fact that it uses a two-piece case. The case head is steel while the body and neck are made of brass. ...Read More >

Recently, I purchased a large quantity of once-fired cases, as I cannot find them available new, but when I began loading them, it was quickly noticed that about half of them take small pistol primers. ...Read More >
Picking a new rifle and cartridge for any military force sets in motion a process with difficulty ranking somewhere between lassoing gophers and trimming the toenails of wild lions. Everyone from military officers and politicians to their office staff, relatives and landscapers have an opinion on the subject. It just has such an effect on people. Given that our cartridge this time is the 5.45x39mm Russian, certainly the powers-that-be (or powers-that-were) in the former Soviet Union could design the perfect military rifle cartridge without a lot of distraction. Let’s see. ...Read More >
