Outside the Box: Benelli MR1

Benelli's MR1 redefines how a black rifle should look, feel and operate. At its heart beats the company's tough and reliable A.R.G.O. system.

Barrel Break-In

A few simple steps can help maximize a rifle's potential accuracy. Breaking-in a new barrel is often neglected, but doing it right will make your gun a better shooter.

Hevi-Shot Dead Coyote

Although Dead Coyote was built for hammering song dogs, this load pulls double duty for waterfowling at distances beyond 45 yards.

Ruger SR-556

In the case of the Mini-14 and its variants, Ruger seemed to be grasping for a slice of the "black rifle" market without actually turning out a black-rifle design. It's no wonder, then, that Ruger dropped a few jaws at this year's NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits with news of its first AR-pattern gun.

FNH SCAR

The FNH SCAR combines today's cutting-edge technology with a greater degree of modularity than previous battle rifles.

Para USA TTR

Maybe it was time for someone to take a look at the AR carbine as a whole, rather than just one aspect of it. Enter the genre-redefining Para USA Tactical Target Rifle (TTR), an AR-pattern rifle chambered for 5.56 NATO that offers shooters an intriguing solution to not only the gas-system issue, but also the folding-stock conundrum.

Gun Cleaning Chemistry

Cleaning your firearms is vital to ensure they function at all times. Here are some cleaning products to help you keep your guns spic-and-span.

Reclaiming .223 Rem. Range Brass

It seems these days I end every shooting match on my hands and knees. No, I am not ripping off my shirt in celebration of a win like Brandi Chastain—I am picking up brass. I confess, I'm a brass hoarder.

A Case for Corrosive Ammo

The price may be much lower than conventional fodder, but do the disadvantages of corrosive-primed ammo outweigh the benefits?

Barrett REC7 in 5.56 NATO

This may be one of the most frustrating guns I've tested. Don't get me wrong. There were no failures to feed, stoppages or malfunctions of any sort in more than 100 rounds, and the gun handles like a dream.
