Dynamic Targets can be made quickly and cheaply for range shooting if you are tiring of shooting paper. :)

Choosing Guns and Ammunition is a pairing of sorts...Dr D talks about pairing practice and hollow point ammunition for the Short Barrel Revolver.

Dr D tests some primers from the 70's. Will they still work? Will they ruin Dr D's trusty Smith and Wesson revolver?

I bought a 500 round ".357 Premium Mix" projectiles from American Reloading which for a total of $45 shipped. I received a mix of jacketed and hollow point projectiles and provide a brief review of my experience. :)

Aluminum cases are supposedly not reloadable but technically is it possible? Dr D does some in 38 Special and talks about accuracy and durability.

Feeding an Airweight 38 special an accurate load can be difficult. I show you the SWC (semi-wadcutter bullet) with which I am quite accurate (show you some range targets) and the formula for their production.This was an early load in my reloading experience. I have put together quite a few more potent ones that I might share on an upcoming video.

357 Magnum Snub Nose revolvers offer power as well as options for ammunition..namely 38 Special or .357 Magnum loads. What should you put in there and why? As far as I am concerned, you need to hit the target to be of any use.

The Smith and Wesson 642 J Frame Revolver is a reliable gun for close range self defense purposes. Some easy upgrades:

This is a "Surgeon's Approach to Gun Tech." The channel was started on YouTube but is being mirrored/moved at least in part in response to the 4/2018 changes in YouTube's Gun Content policy. These will continue to be practical reviews of Guns and Ammo as well as "how to do it cheap" gun mods and maintenance with some very basic gun safety thrown in. :)

As Dr D lives in California, the online ammunition purchases have come to an end. We are throwing in a bit of online sources for reloading supplies.
