TFB Review: Cimarron Firearms 1875 Outlaw

This past winter I found myself rewatching many of the westerns that Netflix had on rotation. Movies including “High Plains Drifter” “3:10 to Yuma” and “The Power of the Dog” and these films really had me wanting a six-shooter of my own to play around with at the range some day. I reached out to Cimarron Firearms and asked if they would be willing to send me a review copy of their 1875 Outlaw in .357 and they were more than happy to send one my way.

Hornady's NEW Subsonic 7.62×39 Load And Expanded Sub-X Bullet Lineup

Despite the launching of many 7 PRC rifles and loadings at the end of October, Hornady quietly launched an updated lineup of their Sub-X bullets, as well as their subsonic 7.62×39 loading using said Sub-X bullets. The Sub-X bullets utilize the familiar red-nosed expansion tip, but these tips have been enlarged to enhance the bullet’s expansion at much lower velocities. For the moment, it appears that the 255-grain 7.62×39 projectiles only come as part of their factory-loaded subsonic cartridge series, while the rest of the Sub-X lineup are available as just the projectiles. Hornady previously listed the 190 grain .308 caliber bullets under the Sub-X line, though they’ve now also listed .357, .452, .458, and one more .308 caliber offering.
