I don't see any rifle rounds, and I don't really shoot pistol.


They claim casing durability is superior to brass.

I'm a novice recurve archer, but I don't bow hunt

Looking to get into longbows eventually

I have a 45 pound PSE recurve. Like I said I'm pretty novice so I'm not sure what information you're looking for.

It's an entry level recurve but I wanted to test the waters with something on the lighter/affordable end before getting too much into it financially. It's a great bow, though, and I definitely enjoy shooting.

edit: It's not a takedown, it's a solid piece

Sounds like a good way to go,
do you shoot RH?
I'm a lefty,
I shoot a custom reflex/deflex bow,
bamboo/fiberglass and I have a modified Howard Hill 60# 5 layered bamboo longbow
that shoots like a dream,
took me up until now to pull it back after a shoulder fracture 1 1/2 yrs ago,
I have about 10 bows but not one take down,
always wanted one but they are typically %25 more expensive

LOL
That's ok
well let me know if I can help anytime,
I have been shooting since I was a young teenager,
shooting traditional is like playing 12 string guitar-its not for the weak or timid,
but if you want to be a true archer this is way to go

I'm not a hunter at all, but I got into bowmaking for a while and turned out several longbows, a couple of sets of arrows, etc.
My best effort was a #45 Osage Orange longbow. It was my first attempt at this wood....Someone on one of the primitive archery forums gifted me with a very nice stave and it turned out very well.

Making your own equipment is very satisfying, and can be done with a minimal investment in tools ands such. I'd wanted to try since I read Howard Hill's "Hunting The Hard Way" way back in the 60s when I was a teen.
I had no woodworking skills at all at the time, of course.... But building cigar-box guitars and carving necks was pretty much the same techniques!

Osage is wonderful,
wish I had a good stave,
American indians typically used bows in that range
and relied on hunting skills and good shooting

I have a budget ASE compound bow... it works well enough. I don't have time to hunt with it though, give me my .270 or shotgun slugs. I'm hungry.
