Fast Method for Removing Lead in Pistol Barrels

Category : Gunsmithing, Handguns, How-To

A Solution of 50% Hydrogen Peroxide and 50% Vinegar can be used to remove lead from barrels very quickly.

If you shoot a lot of pistol ammunition there is a good chance you will shoot cast lead bullets out of your gun at one time or another. Cast bullets can save you a lot of money. Unfortunately, when you use commercially cast bullets they can leave lead in your barrel that is hard to remove. This is a procedure to remove lead out of barrels that works very well.

A solution of 50% hydrogen peroxide and 50% white vinegar reacts with lead and eats any lead  in your barrel within 2-3 minutes. It is important

Shooting Off a Bipod

Category : Bipods, How-To, Long Range, Rifles, Tactical

There is a lot of talk on the Internet about proper bipod technique; but, I have never found anything definitive.  Some use a hard hold, while some use free recoil, and others use something in between.  I shoot F/TR class in NRA high-power matches.  In these matches you shoot strings of 15 to 20 rounds at a 1 minute of angle ten ring and a ½ minute of angle X-ring.  I have found it is very hard to be consistent over this many shots.

Proper technique for shooting off a bipod takes a lot of practice and experimenting with what works best for you

Since there has been no definitive article that I have found on proper bipod hold I decided to do my own testing.

How to Build or Rebarrel a Savage Rifle


I recently had the pleasurable experience of building my own custom target/long range rifle.  Perhaps the most impressive part of my rifle is that it cost considerably less to build than buying a new Remington Sendero from Cabelas. Depending on what you want to do with the rifle it might cost a lot less.
