The German Ordinance Bureau introduced an improved version of the 8mm Mauser cartridge, and added a rim to create the 8x57 JRS. The major change in the process of improving the 8mm Mauser was increasing the diameter of the bullet to 0.323 inches. The version without a rim served in various militaries around the world. And when the cartridge was finally retired from active service, the 8mm had more than a century of use as a military cartridge.

It is all too easy to pass over handguns like the 9mm APF Strike One Speed without realizing the journey that the design took. On the outside, it looks like a regular polymer-framed, striker-fired handgun, but it is unique on the inside. In a world dominated by the Browning action, the Strike One Speed approaches the handgun differently.
 

History of 444 Marlin Ammo

In 1964, Marlin Firearms and Remington Arms joined forces to develop a cartridge that filled the gap created by the lack of lever action rifles chambered in .45-70. The result was the .444 Marlin, which was chambered in the acclaimed Model 336 lever action rifle. To develop the cartridge, designers from Marlin and Remington started with a .44 Magnum case, lengthened it by nearly an inch and capped it with a jacketed soft point bullet weighing 240 grains. The bullet actually has a diameter of 0.429 inches, the same as a .44 Magnum bullet. But similarities to the .44 Magnum end there, as the performance of the .444 Marlin is on another level entirely.

Every hunter and shooter knows enough about the 7mm Magnum and the short-action standard .308 Win, but what the heck is a 7mm-08?

We get this question often at our local gun shop, and the answer is that it’s entirely its own animal. Why should you care about this round? Relatively low recoil meets relatively impressive big game performance, that’s why. Read on.

Analysis: The Death of Chevron and the Future of Gun Litigation

Friday brought a rare instance of a no-nonsense Supreme Court decision unambiguously reversing prior precedent in a way that has far-reaching consequences–but maybe not for gun policy. Loper v. Raimondo saw the Court stating, in no uncertain terms, that Chevron, “a decaying husk with bold pretensions,” is overruled. Twitter–and my email inbox–were ablaze with theories about what this might mean for gun litigation. In all likelihood, though, the impact on Second Amendment cases will be more muted than many expect.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. — Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
