I’ve always thought making powder space smaller increases pressure. The words “. any increase in seating depth reduces pressure” in the last paragraph of the article says just the opposite. Have I been wrong all these years? Since I travel a lot, the availability of your digital issue has been great, and the mechanism for reviewing it works a whole lot better than a number of other magazines’. Tim Gales Flagstaff, Arizona In rifles, seating bullets deeper decreases peak pressure because there’s a longer “jump” for the bullet until it hits the chamber throat. The bullet has a chance to get going faster before being forced into the rifling, and the increased momentum reduces the pressure rise caused by the bullet being engraved by the rifling. In revolvers, however, seating the bullet deeper does cause higher peak pressures, because the bullet has to travel further before reaching the cylinder gap, thus allowing pressure to rise longer before the gap relieves some of the pressure.—John Barsness me think. Both have put a smile on my face and at times a tear on my cheek. I wish them both the best, and as long as they write for you I will continue to wait each month eagerly. Brett Roy Utah CONTRIBUTING EDITORS FIELD EDITORS John Taffin, Holt Bodinson, Dave Anderson, Clint Smith, Massad Ayoob, Mike “Duke” Venturino Sam Fadala, David Codrea, John Morrison, Glen Zediker, John Sheehan, Jacob Gottfredson, Mike Cumpston, John Barsness, Dave Douglas Get Well A get well to one of my favorite writers. John always makes me think, feel, and read. I love his views on the future based on his past. God saved a good one. I can’t imagine a life without the big three to look forward to, Taffin, Connor, and Venturino. You all share a commodity I find rare, absolute honesty. Thanks for the opportunity to know you folks.

What an excellent article the January 2011 Campfire Tales “Got Books?” was. I submit it fulfilled its purpose. The reference made to ExPresident Theodore Roosevelt’s South American expedition into the wilds of Brazil was for some reason, something I had never heard of and therefore I went to the effort to look it up. It was a fascinating story. After all the adventures and enterprises Theodore Roosevelt enjoyed and endured during his life, to be very nearly brought down by an infected wound, malaria and dysentery speaks volumes about the intensity of the Brazilian jungle. Thank you Mr. Taffin for exposing me to the knowledge. Books are invaluable and I pity those that don’t enjoy them. Hal Hansen via e-mail The Alessi holster pictured in the February 2011 issue on page 35 should have been named a CQC/S Custom. The 1RH only means “right hand.” We apologize for the confusion.—Editor ONLINE ADVERTISING MANAGER: Tracy Moore, two Johns I don’t often write mags or any one else for that matter, but have thought about it several times with your magazines (GUNS and American Handgunner). I look forward every month to their arrival and read them front to back. Scratch that, back to front. You put out fine magazines but I always find myself rereading the articles time and again by John Taffin and John Conner while I wait for my next issue.
