    SWFA Fixed 10 Power or 20 Power

    I will use the scope for load development at 100 yards initially and then pushing things out to 300 or 400 for more refined tuning. After I have a good load worked up, I would like to use the scope for learning to shoot wind better. Ultimate goal is to get better for hunting. I won't be...

    SWFA Fixed 10 Power or 20 Power

    The glass between the two scopes is likely the same composition? Do the imperfections come out more because of the magnification? Or maybe the 20x has more lenses...?

    SWFA Fixed 10 Power or 20 Power

    I'm considering a SWFA Supersniper fixed power scope to throw on a volume gun for practicing. I've heard a lot of good things about the 10 power super sniper for the money. Does the 20 power one have the same reputation/quality? I think I would prefer 20 power over 10 power for a scope like...

    Cooper Model 92 Load Development

    Berger 215 - Sighting in after scope change: (high shot was first shot, right shot is me turning the scope the wrong way like a goof): Berger 215 Load Validation - Says post cleaning, this was after I cleaned the rifle because I could not get it to reproduce the above group. I shot 5...

    Cooper Model 92 Load Development

    I guess it certainly could be me. I am shooting prone with a bipod and rear bag. I feel rock solid and have an awesome trigger on the gun (bix'n andy). I really would have a hard time believing that I can shoot a .3" group one minute and then suck bad enough the next to shoot a 3" group...

    Cooper Model 92 Load Development

    I've been struggling to find a load that my .300 win model 92 likes. I've been using 215 bergers and 212 eld-x bullets with H1000 powder. I've shot a bunch of groups with different powder charges and seating depths without any great results. Twice now I thought I found a good load and shot...

    FNX 45 Tactical Red Dot Woods Defense (RMR / Deltapoint / etc)

    How about the new aimpoint? I could see it having advantages with debris blocking the dot emitter (or whatever it's called). It does seem rather bulky though.

    45 ACP Taper Crimp Spec

    So I tried the plunk test. It seems that the less I crimp it, the better it works. Is it bad to have very little to no crimp on the bullets? When I crimp it further, a small burr develops on the mouth of the case. I feel like my RCBS taper crimp die is behaving kind of like a roll crimp...

    Pistol Break In Proceedure

    Do you do anything special to break in your pistol? Clean the storage grease off of it, lube it, and shoot it pretty much? A gentleman told me to run an oil patch down the barrel after every mag for 250 rounds and stressed that I not break the gun in with hollow points.

    FNX 45 Tactical Red Dot Woods Defense (RMR / Deltapoint / etc)

    I have a new FNX 45 Tactical on the way and I want to get a red dot for it. Quality and durability are my top concerns. I will be carrying the gun as a hunting sidearm predominately. I will also be using it at night with a weapon light. I definitely want my iron sights as a backup...

    FNX 45 Trigger Job

    Looks like a pretty good choice. Thank you. Are you happy with all the work on your other triggers? I'll have to search around on the internet to try to find out some more info about him.

    45 ACP Taper Crimp Spec

    Why can't I find the spec for the taper crimp diameter in my reloading manuals? Is there one? Measuring different factory loads, I'm seeing .469-.472". My brass is around .472 with no crimp. I loaded a couple of rounds with it going to .470 and it puts a small burr on the lip of the case...

    Woods Gun Waist Holster (FNX 45 Tactical/ Gunfighters Inc Ronin)

    Just ordered a FNX 45 Tactical that I plan on converting to a 40 Super or 10mm as an option to carrying around the woods. I'm going to get a Gunfighters Inc Chest holster for it and was wondering how their outside the waistband holster (The Ronin) is? The little bit of reading I have done on it...
