How to Make Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine

Get ready to ‘shine on around a campfire with this apple pie moonshine recipe.

Here’s a recipe you are going to want to share with your friends and hope they make some of their own. Maybe then they’ll stop asking you for a jar every season.

Before we get into this recipe, I feel I need to set the record straight. This isn’t actual moonshine made famous by the cooks of white lightning, tub thumper, corn squeezing or whatever you want to call the real thing.

What it is, though, is a high-proof mix of autumn-time deliciousness. This apple pie moonshine alternative is sure to please anyone of legal age to enjoy a taste. Be careful, though: this recipe makes a very smooth drink that tastes just a like liquid apple pie. You have been warned.

Apple Pie Moonshine

Ingredients 

  • 1 750-milliliter bottle of 190-proof Everclear or high-proof vodka if that’s all you can get.
  • About 1 cup of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum (two cups tastes pretty good also… just saying).
  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 1 quart apple juice
  • 3 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 10 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 large stock pot
  • 6 mason jars (quart-sized)

This recipe comes together very quickly. Simply combine the cinnamon sticks, apple cider, and apple juice in the large stock pot. Bring it all to a mild simmer and add in the sugars.

Continue to stir slowly for about 5-10 minutes until all the sugar is dissolved. At that point, turn the heat off and allow the apple cider mixture to cool down to room temperature.

Allow it several hours to reach a lower temperature. If you add in the alcohol too soon, the higher temperature will evaporate some of the alcohol content.

Once the mixture is at room temperature, stir in the Everclear and one to two cups of rum.

At that point, you are ready to jar the apple pie moonshine in the mason jars. Don’t be afraid to put a cinnamon stick in the jars either.

As the apple pie moonshine ages, the cinnamon and sugar blends out the alcohol taste to an almost undetectable level. Again…YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Nosler Introduces 115-Grain 6mm Reduced Drag Factor Bullet

Nosler Introduces 115gr 6mm Reduced Drag Factor Bullet

Serious competition shooters will be pleased to hear about the new 6mm Reduced Drag Factor Bullet in 115-grain that Nosler just unveiled.

Just like the name states, the Nosler Reduced Drag Factor (RDF) Bullet is designed for match shooters who want high ballistic coefficient bullets with the flattest trajectory and the least wind drift possible at long range.

Well, shooters who use 6mm cartridges just got some great news when Nosler, Inc announced that a 115-grain 6mm Reduced Drag Factor Bullet is the newest addition to their RDF line.

Designed specifically for use in rifles with a barrel twist rate of 1:7.5″ or faster, the new 115-grain Reduced Drag Factor bullet has a ridiculously high BC of .634 (G1). This is a significant improvement over the only previous 6mm RDF option, which was a 105-grain and had a G1 BC of .571.

Like all the other Nosler RDF bullets, the new 6mm bullet incorporates several key design factors that result in a sleek form factor with one of the highest BCs available anywhere for a bullet of that size.

First, the bullet has a long, drag reducing boattail. It also has a compound ogive along with what Nosler advertises as the smallest and most consistent meplats of any hollow point match bullet line, which they claim eliminates the need to trim tips.

Add it all up and you’ve got a very sleek, accurate, and easy to load hollow point boat tail (HPBT) bullet that’s perfect for rifle tournaments, like Precision Rifle Series (PRS) matches.

With the introduction of this bullet, the entire RDF bullet line now includes 70-, 77-, and 85-grain bullets in .22 caliber, 105- and 115-grain bullets in 6mm (.243 caliber), 130- and 140-grain bullets in 6.5 mm (.264 caliber), 185 grain bullets in 7mm (.284 caliber), 168-, 175-, and 210-grain bullets in .30 caliber, and 300-grain bullets in .338 caliber.

Note that Nosler’s RDF bullets are designed for long range efficiency during competition rifle matches, not for big game hunting. If you want a good long range hunting bullet, then consider the Nosler AccuBond Long Range Series instead.

But if you want match grade accuracy, flat trajectories, and great resistance to wind drift when using your 6mm Creedmoor to bang steel or punch paper, then check out the Nosler 6mm 115 grain RDF bullet.

Keanu Reeves Shows Shooting Prowess Training for John Wick Movie

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/keanu-reeves-shows-shooting-prowess-training-for-john-wick-movie/

YouTube: Taran Tactical

Who knew Keanu Reeves could shoot like this?

At this point, Keanu Reeves has already staked his claim as an American badass. After two heart-pounding action franchises in “John Wick” and “The Matrix” alone, he’s earned a spot on the Mount Rushmore of action movies.

However, who knew he could actually shoot? He’s not only capable with a firearm; he could shoot competitively!

You won’t believe your eyes when you see him wield a wide variety of firearms, which includes an AR-15, a shotgun and handguns.

Watch the video below:

If you haven’t already seen “John Wick 3: Parabellum,” chances are you probably want to after watching this, right? The franchise has gained somewhat of a cult-like following after its first two acts, which appear to correlate with how Reeves spends his free time.

Shooting competitively on a course like this is no easy task, as quick shooting scenarios challenge your instincts behind the sights of a rifle, and requires elite discipline from your trigger finger.

It’s clear after watching this tactical training video from Taran Tactical that Reeves has put in a ton of work to prepare for these movies, molding himself into an unbelievable shooter.

Another cool element to the new movie and Reeves’ shooting abilities is the clear lack of a stunt double. In a lot of action movies, Hollywood actors use stunt doubles to do some of the technical work, such as shooting.

It’s exciting to know you’ll actually be watching Reeves in action.
