  • A Shooter, A Designer and A Legend - The AR15 comes of age in 6.5 mm
    Beyond 5.56
    DECEMBER 2003

    “A Shooter” - Arne Brennan, CompetitionShootingSports.com Historically, the AR15 / M16 has not been without controversy and critics. As a military rifle, during early use in the Vietnam War, the M16 suffered from functioning problems due to a change in propellants and improper training of soldiers regarding cleaning and maintenance. Lessons were learned, refinements made and the M16 platform evolved into one of the most prominent firearms in military history. However, the M16 to this day is not without criticism, not so much due to the rifle, but because of the 5.56 NATO cartridge, that lacks the long-range effectiveness of the 7.62 NATO cartridge used in the M14 and other military small arms. In the civilian market, the AR15 for many years has been con...

  • UTAS UTS–15 Tactical Shotgun
    Beyond 5.56
    UTAS is a Turkish company specializing in firearms design and OEM manufacturing. Prior to Shot Show 2011 the only dual magazine shotgun known to me was the South African NEOSTEAD.

  • Apple iPad, iPhone, and iTouch a shooters tool?
    Beyond 5.56
    With the announcement of Apple iPad 2 being released on March 11, it brings up some interesting questions regarding the use of technology such as smartphones and tablets in the shooting sports. Now, i am not talking about apps that everyone has seen which show a picture of a firearm and makes a cute machine gun sound when you touch it. We are talking about serious, useful apps that have potential to enhance our experience as sportsmen and shooting enthusiasts. Probably the biggest collection of useful gun apps are produced by Runaway Technology, Inc. Runaway Technology is of the Photomosaic fame that was invented by Robert Silvers. RSilvers is part of the R&D team at Adva...

  • Hackers Hurt the "unofficial" 6.5 Grendel Community

    Hackers Hurt the "unofficial" 6.5 Grendel Community

    In October 2010, 65grendel.com became the victim of internet hackers that created 40,000+ new members and essentially crashed the site and the ISP reportedly forced the forum site to close.

Grendelizer) stated they are working on rebuilding and relaunching the forum site, adding a lot of "upgrades that were both necessary and desirable". However, it has remained closed for 2+ consecutive months as of this posting. Forums are always targets for hackers esp...

    Rebirth of a Forum

    As of December 15, 2010 the www.50beowulf.com Forum has expanded into a new website and forum that had been opened at the domain www.beyond556.com

    Why this change?
