New Segment: Deadbeat Chronicles

If you’re one of the roughly 700 people who find your way to WBTK each month, first, thank you! Second, you’ll notice that it’s been dead. It’s been stale. It’s been weak. Frankly, I’ve been a deadbeat. It’s time to atone. A touch over a year ago, I posted a review of a truck on […]

Guidance: The Case for a .223 Trainer

Recently, I had the opportunity to review a Trainer Rifle chambered in .223 REM from the fine folks at Accurate Ordnance. It was an outstanding rifle, and unlike some rifles I drop off at UPS, I was very sad to see it head back home to one of AO’s owners, Mark¬†Kuczka.

Silencer Review: Dead Air Sandman K

note: The silencer and range time for this review was provided by Capitol Armory, located in Cedar Park, TX.¬† Of great joy to me is using a product and seeing the design ethos behind it.

VideoLog: August 22, 2017

On this evening’s VideoLog, I painfully dispose of unnecessary brass, use various expletives, and talk about how to get started in reloading. Come for the reloading talk, stay for death of a beetle and a discussion about understanding that nobody cares about your problems quite like you.
