Friday Already, And No Posts All Week?

February 21, 2014

Sorry folks, for the dearth of posts and activity over the past week.  I was travelling for the day job, and it turned into a very busy week indeed.  Usually, I try to pre-load a couple of posts but it didn’t pan out.  So there ya go.  I’ll refund your subscription fees.

I also owe an apology to Bruce Cherry, my pal in Hawaii, for not getting back to him on his great idea… an idea I’m turning into a post today.

Bruce mentioned that he spends a lot of time online doing research and reading on topics like reloading, ballistics, recoil calculation, and several other topics.  He’s got some favorite sites of his own, and thought it would be interesting to open things up here so you readers could also share your favorites.  So let’s hear them… what sites have you come to rely on for solid info on shooting, hunting, reloading, or other related topics?  Feel free to share the URLs in your comments.

Note, if your post doesn’t show up, send me a note.  It’s possible that my SPAM blocker saw too many hyperlinks in your message and flagged it.

Oh, and stand by.  I’ve been following an interesting thread regarding a proposed ban on lead ammo use in the Olympics.  It’s an almost timely topic for sure, but I need time to do some real research.

That’s it!  Have a great weekend!

    This is from Bruce… the filters wouldn’t let him post due to the number of links in his comment so I’ll post it for him.
    OK, here goes. Ammo is very hard to find on the Big Island, so I handload everything. But that has a downside since primers are about $10 per hundred and powder is $44 a pound. You can’t ship primers or powder to Hawaii other than on flats in huge quantities or by second day air, which costs over $100 per pound.

    Love the gunbot site for ammo, thanks for showing that!

    I’ve also found this site informative:

    Keep ‘em coming, folks.

    I’ve used many of these sites at one point or another. There’s a lot of good info on the web. Just remember to consider your sources, and weigh everything you read with extra care… especially when it comes to reloading information.
