Seldom, if ever, does an arms and ammunition maker bring out sensational new items two years in a row. Remington seems to have pulled this off, as they're making waves again this season. Having withdrawn its contract arrangements with Environ Metal of Oregon, Remington is out of the Hevi Shot ammo for waterfowling.

It seems like only yesterday the most important thing on my mind was trying to get the best kickball at recess.
Pelletized lime can seem like an attractive alternative to typical ag-lime because it exists in a pellet form that can ease application. The common assumption is that you apply dramatically less pelletized lime than typical ag-lime, but do you get similar results? The simple straightforward answer is no! Pelletized lime is made up of smaller/finer particles than typical ag-lime (that is important for determining the neutralizing power of lime), but that does not mean you can apply a fraction of the lime recommendation and observe the same field results.
