    The rifle was a PTR 91, GI model; the ammunition was Wolf Polyformance steel-cased. I shot off of a table with a gun rest. Iron sights only; no scope. The 1st target is at 25 yds. The squares are 1”, so the bulls-eye has a 2” diameter. I made a windage adjustment to move the POI...

    Most preppers are stockpiling some kind of ammunition. Usually it is the military calibers that are stockpiled and 22 long rifle. But what about hunting grade ammunition? How much hunting grade ammunition are you stockpiling? How much ammunition do you usually use in a hunting season...

    The 308 rifle niche was already filled with the M1A, FN/FAL, PTR-91, Remington Woodsmaster, and various bolt action 308 rifles. The AR platform in 308 is trying to fill a niche that is already full. www.alloutdoor.com/2015/10/22/heavy-duty-shtf-battle-rifles/ I remember reading about the...

    I have a friend who just recently came out as a wannabe survivalist LOL He want's to buy a rifle, he already owns a handgun and shotgun. I took him to the range and let him shoot every one of my rifles, and he has decided that he wants an AR15. I tried to push him towards a Remington 700 in...

    Well, since the dark days of 1988 when center-fire semi-auto rifles were restricted the elusive FN FAL was out of reach, no longer! Look what Watch Ryder buzzed in from the nearby FFL: SA 58 FN FAL! The Right Arm of the Free World descends, one of the Kings of the Battle Rifle calibers...

    Given up on the 223, the lack of power, the wind blowing rounds way off coarse. Gone to the to the 308 platform and slaps down crap out to 800 never looked back since. The AR 15 seems like a kids toy to me now, not saying this to start a poo fight. It's just that the 308 thumps everything at...

    Thinking about getting a PTR91 GI model, what are your thoughts? Owners of a PTR91, what common mods have you done? Should I spend another $300-$400 and just get an AR10? Or should I spend another $600-$700 and buy a Springfield M1A? Or is the PTR91 a good rifle for the money?

    Working up another article for ReadyMan Magazine and I could use some input. I was just debating with my Navy SEAL co-host the merits of a .308 battle rifle. His point: there's not much of a tactical slot for a semi-auto .308. So, we'll probably build an article with him shooting the SCAR Heavy...

    Palmetto State Armory announces PA-10, 308 Winchester on the AR platform. Just in time for shotshow. This picture was posted to the PSA facebook page just a few minutes ago. Maybe this will help bring down the prices of the AR platform chambered in 308 Winchester. If the AR-10 cost a little...

    The shelves are empty, except for a few select calibers. Those calibers are 243 Winchester, 30-30 Winchester, 270 Winchester, 7mm magnum, 45 colt and 30-06 Springfield. A line of people are standing at the counter in the hopes the store got a shipment in. Sounds like something from a movie...

    Are you considering buying a rifle chambered in 308 Winchester to help you and your family through a long term SHTF situation? The three main rifles on the market are the M1A, PTR-91 and the FN/FAL. There are a lot of articles out there discussing the points of each rifle. What is rarely...

    So I have been thinking in worst case scenario what ammo do you think will be most plentiful. This is my list based on nothing but guesses, so it is quite likely it will not be very accurate. .22 long Rifle 5.56/223. I put them in the same category as I can fire both from my AR15. Of the two I...
