22LR vs 22WMR vs 223 Remington

22WMR and 17HMR vs 223 Remington

22 WMR vs 17 HMR

22 Winchester Magnum, or “22 Mag” for short, was the big dog rimfire for decades. Typically running a 30-50 grain bullet at 2200 fps, 1880, or 1530, respectively, it was a big jump over the typical 22 round of a 40 grain bullet at 1200 fps. But now that 17 HMR has been on the […]

300 Blackout vs 223

The 300 Blackout, sometimes called the 300 AAC Blackout and somewhat similar to the 300 Whisper®, is what happens when you want an easy 30 caliber conversion for your AR-15. Delivering similar ballistic performance to the 7.62×39, but using a slightly lighter bullet, the 300 Blackout alleviates some hunter’s concerns around bullet mass on game AND […]

Maximum Shotgun Shell Capacity in Canada

I couldn’t find a really comprehensive guide to maximum shotgun capacities for Canada, so I thought I’d write one. First off, many hunters might think that shotguns are limited to 2 shells in the tube and while that’s the case in most hunting regulations, it’s not a hard limit if you’re using your shotguns for […]
