Many TV shows and movies give the impression that forensic science is an exact, unerring field where evidence unequivocally leads to a single, irrefutable conclusion. However, the truth is far less black and white. Even advanced scientific techniques have their limitations and are susceptible to various kinds of errors.
Paradoxical attitudes toward hunting and conservation in the U.S. are truly head scratching and Canada isn't immune. Conservatives, who are often skeptical of government regulation, surprisingly respect the rules set by wildlife biologists for hunting. Conversely, many liberals, despite their proclaimed trust in science, tend to ignore it when it comes to wildlife management. This ideological divide is not just an American phenomenon; it's evident in Canada too, where public opinion about hunting varies sharply between conservatives and liberals.
When it comes to reloading ammunition, the process of annealing brass cartridge casings is one of those topics that raises varying opinions among firearm enthusiasts and professionals alike. Annealing, which involves heating the brass to a certain temperature and then allowing it to cool, is a process meant to extend the lifespan of your casings, among other advantages. But is it a one-size-fits-all solution?
Let's delve into the pros and cons of annealing brass cartridge casings, hopefully helping you decide whether or not this technique fits your reloading needs. Get ready for a journey into the nuances of metalwork, chemistry, and firearms safety.
The Lee Enfield rifle saw it all, including two world wars, a cold one and even the fields and forests of virtually every province and territory in Canada. Still a favourite rifle going on 100 years, it’s time to take a look at this most famous and possibly peerless of rifles.
The tale of the 6.5 Creedmoor is intertwined with the history of competitive shooting. In the early 2000s, long-range shooting competitions were seeing a resurgence. Shooters were looking for a cartridge that could deliver consistent accuracy at distances beyond 1,000 yards. At the time, many were reliant on older or specialized calibers, often requiring complex handloading.
Reloading your own ammunition with a single stage reloading press can be a fulfilling and cost-effective way to support your shooting hobbies. Whether you're reloading for a rifle, pistol, or shotgun, the steps remain largely the same. We thought it might be helpful to give you a step by step guide as a type of checklist for you to use until you become familiar with the various steps.
With a storied past and an eye towards future innovation, let's take a second to celebrate and discover the development of one of the biggest names in shooting, Hornady. And maybe along the way, we can discover what all those bullet types really are.
Hey there fellow outdoor enthusiasts! The Fall is almost upon us and the call of the wild is a tune that you can't resist. But it's important to remember it’s not just about the thrill of the hunt—it's about connection, respect, and understanding the forests and fields we’ll be trekking.
5 tech innovations to look for in the coming seasons.
While the fundamentals of firearms have remained relatively constant for almost 200 years, that doesn't mean technology hasn't also found its way to our favourite sport. This is a list of 5 newer technologies to look forward to as they push our sport into the future.
In 1962 Remington announced the new model 700 ADL (Average Deluxe) and BDL (Better Deluxe) and within a year or so even Remington management was stunned by the rifle’s success.
Remington would follow this success with the 700 Classic, a straight stock with no monte carlo or cheek piece and satin finish. In 1981 Remington offered the 700 Classic in a limited production in caliber 7mm Mauser and every year there after the Classic was only offered in one special caliber.
In 1956 a gentleman named Rudolph Koppe, who had immigrated from Germany, took on a couple new firearm lines: Baikal & Vostok Firearms from Russia.These firearms were from Tula and Tzhevsk in the Soviet Union, both of which had been gunsmithing centers for over five centuries.To the best of my knowledge this was the first quantity of firearms in North America from the communist country and I believe Ruko had exclusive rights to North America but because the U.S. would not allow Russian imports, it was basically Canada.For the next 25 years +, Ruko imported shotguns, 22 rifles and 22 target rifles and pistols from Baikal & from Vostok.
I’ve talked about Cooey firearms before but I’m not sure whether I have really driven home how much the Cooey firearm, especially the 22 rifle, dominated the Canadian Firearms landscape.Many shooters now find room in our budget for a new Browning T Bolt or a Ruger 10/22 or something in a CZ 457 series or Anschutz Target Rifle, but my question is this: will you ever find the excitement or early murmurs of adulthood that came with your first outing with Dad, Grandad or your big brother and a Cooey?
