5.7x28mm vs .22 WMR

Military Arms Channel takes a look at the 5.7x28mm round versus your standard .22 WMR bullet. He shoots them out of their respective pistols. A FNH Five Seven and a Kel-Tec PMR-30. He even uses a SBR PS90 for the test. The test consists of seeing if over the counter [Read More…]

CO2 Shotgun Ammo

Royal Nonesuch was asked to try shooting CO2 cartridges out of his home made shotgun. The results were rather interesting. Win the new Springfield Armory XD-9 Mod.2 TFB's first ever gun giveaway.

The last couple of years of “strong consumer demand” (panic buying) has finally come to an end. .22 LR ammunition is still thin on the ground (although easy to purchase online) but centerfire inventory is good, retailers are flush with AR-15 rifles and there [Read More…]
