I finally finished reading an issue of American Rifleman. I’ve been woefully behind on my reading, so it was nice to finish what I had started.
My favorite article in this issue was, “Hornady’s 6.5 MM Creedmoor” by Joseph L. Kurtenbach. I am a sucker for specialty cartridges, as I have mentioned on this blog numerous times. I think this 6.5 mm Creedmoor shows a lot of promise as a hunting and target round. (1)
My second favorite article was, “The First Ruger” by Don Findley. While I have been disappointed by the Mark III pistol, I really did like the Mark II pistols that I grew up shooting. This article gave the history of this company; a company that started with such meager roots, yet now produces 12 million guns a year. (2)
Thank you for reading my post.
