I've been playing with the new March 5-42x56 PRS scope for the last few days in the March booth at SHOT. There was a lot of interest in that riflescope and for good reasons.

The scope is a nice size at just a smidge over 14 inches compared to another...

Is anyone using a "supported" bolt carrier group? For example the lantac enhanced BCG or CMC BCG with the larger flange at the end of the carrier that is supposed to aid in repeatability. Is this aiding in accuracy or is this market hype?

I use a 4-jaw when chambering through the spindle, I'm thinking about changing to a spider.

Are there any good lightweight FFP scopes suitable for hunting, assuming it's hiking around and not just sitting in a blind. I have a 6.9lb rifle for hunting and figure using my nearly 31oz PST II seems a bit much. My eyes aren't that great so looking...

So I have a 6.5x47 that was my PRS rifle. I’m going a different route for matches and looking for something to do with the 47.

My thought, cut the 6.5x47 down to 18” for a suppressed hunting rifle.

What do you guys think?
What projectile would you...

Been wanting to build an AR10 for a while, but kept putting it off given what I'd read about the sub-par accuracy and finicky nature of them. Given some changes in WA state law surrounding buying AR platform rifles I bit the bullet and bought a...
