One is for prairie dogs the other is for tanks.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

A better picture of defective/damaged cartridges I have encountered. The undamaged 357 SIG cartridge on the far left end is included for comparison with the next two to its right in the photo.

My .30-30 WCF commemorative case. It appears to be nickel plated and belonged to my great grandfather who hunted with a Marlin made in 1909. This case may date from the release of the .30-30 in 1899.

I'm shocked that most of my pics in that other thread don't work. I might have assumed it was long dead and dumped them from the host.

I don't have a cartridge collection, just an accumulation. You can see some of it in the backgrounds below.


5.56 "sim" rounds..




9mm


Practice chalk round and less lethal crowd control 40mm

Images are frequently lost from web forum threads.

In the earlier days the usual was to attach your image directly to the board's servers, which would be wiped out from time to time by technical or administrative causes. Due to the volume / weight of such attachments nowadays it would be ridiculous to try to host that load for everyone for free.

Enter third-party file hosting facilities.

If you look up one of the "how to post images" threads you'll see various places like dropbox, flickr or imagewhatever that pop up from time to time and allow you to upload your photos on their servers. You then get a URL to point a forum post like this to, and the image is retrieved and displayed from that server. Many times integrated with a bit of advertising for said third party.

Some of these fail too. If you have your own domain space or use one of the paid options you're guaranteed a bit more stability.

While i'm here i'll add a bit of an oddity;

.378/50 with .50BMG and an '06 just for looks

I forgot I still had these. I've had them for many, many years.

Here's one that not many people know about. A terribly underknown and underrated caliber. In this current ammo shortage, it's still possible to find ammo for these lesser known calibers. I was able to pick up a couple of case for a very reasonable price. I won't run out again for many years.



.35 Remington versus .358 Winchester



.35 Remington
200 Grains
Muzzle Velocity - 2080 fps
Muzzle Energy - 1921 ft. lbs

.358 Winchester
200 Grains
Muzzle Velocity - 2490 fps
Muzzle Energy - 2753 ft. lbs

Soft points are so good, they start to mushroom before you even fire them.
