This is a guest post by Andrew Betts The VMAX Bullet – Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover Sometimes something that looks pretty decent on the surface turns out to be not so great. A .300 AAC loaded with 110 gr VMAX should perform pretty well, theoretically. Sometimes the devil is in the […]

This is a guest post by Andrew Betts Wait, are you saying that not everything I see on the Internet is 100% factual? Are gun reviews are lying to me? In short, yes. Nothing is ever really that simple, though is it? We like guns. I mean, they are useful tools for defense of home […]
