Not all shooters are the same. That part's obvious but also, not all firearms are created alike. Even if they are the same make and manufacture for the same caliber, they are different. They might be close but close only counts with hand grenades and nuclear war.

With that in mind, I've hidden the load detail for my loads unless you're signed in. Logins are restricted to myself and 1-2 others. Don't ask for an account.

I'm updating this website roughly once a week with new features. Most will be hidden for a typical user but more for me in the background. However, this also means that the site will go down from time to time for reboots and things like that.

Farm invites for 2021 are going to be limited. I've got a few people that are 'always welcome' at the farm but others are restricted and controlled by invite.

Print it on normal paper, practice on this target. Having a scope on your rifle doesn't make you a sniper. Accuracy thru volume is also not the answer. Aim small, mis ...

May 26, 2021 - REDDIT post.. gone wrong

May 13, 2021 - Semi Broken API links

This is on test, so it's not a huge deal but it IS annoying. I was able to fix this fairly quickly. It turns out that the nginx proxy had a base url that was being forwarded to wrap the service. As a result, i'm now bind mounting that nginx file and ...
