    7 mm rem mag question

    There are a general rules of shooting, obviously, but there is room for exceptions: If a v8 in one car is outperformed by a v6 in another, its okay though the performance is an exception. The headstamp is general. "Holy Toledo, Batman!" performance is peculiar to the piece producing it, and...

    lowering my ES??

    Gunsmithing Input on what happened to this brass...
