Alanzo was trained by Diego Coloca of 'Caloca bible rebinds' whom Ive had do two other bibles. Diego was...

    Aesthetically pleasing Barrel Nut

    I guess its kind of an oxymoron to some (most), but I'm having a hard time liking any of the barrel nut options for savage shoulder-less barrels. they all have a savage type taper to them. Is there a reason for this? I'm kinda digging the PVA tikka barrel nut with the straight taper. I've...

    Is the Origin worth ditching the RPR for?

    Ive been reading a few threads of the Nucleus and origin actions, but Ive never handled them. My ruger has been sitting in a cabinet waiting on a new barrel but I'm rethinking that idea now.

This is also my first time loading for a magnum so I'm not sure how the OCW platform transfers seeing as it...

    If you were to rebarrel your standard Long action in an attempt to create a budget ELR rifle what would you get and how would you configure it?
