    Friend gave me about 180 rounds of these. I've searched the internet for the headstamp i.d. but for the life of me cannot find what it is. It's stamped "FF" on the bottom and a crown on top. The right side of the stamp is a "1". Could it perhaps be Förenede Fabriksverken of Sweden? Not sure...

    Hey everyone, I'm looking for a beautiful, well-performing precision rifle to do some hunting upstate. I think I've settled on getting a .30-06 (over NATO or .300 mag), and I'm a stickler about owning a great-looking wooden gun (I can't stand synthetics). I care more about performance...

The SMLE is a 1918 all matching number with a WW1 era cocking piece. The bayonet was acquired earlier from...

    As I was getting in my car at Calverton last week, I noticed an odd .30-06 casing on the ground. When I examined it, it seemed to have equally spaced grooves all around the case neck. Further down the body of the case were discolored lines following the same line of the grooves. At first I...

    I've tried to figure out if M2 Black Tip ammo is legal in NY but can't find a clear yes/no. This website clearly shows that it is exempted from the Federal ATF definition of prohibited AP ammo. http://nucnews.net/2000/du/98du/981204du.laws.htm This notice from the 2010 listing for M2 on the...
