    Sig tango6 6-24x50 opinions

    The Tango 6 is in a whole different class than the XTRii. I had an XTRii and while it was a nice scope my Tango 6 is head and shoulders better. I think the only thing the Razor has on it is the turrets. The clicks are a lot softer on my Tango 6. Given the current price though it will be a hard...

    Wilson Combat Super Sniper

    I just put one of the 20” super sniper barrels in 223 Wylde on a precision AR I just finished. It is hands down one of the most accurate AR’s I’ve ever shot. It seems to love IMR8208 XBR and 73g ELDM’s. I’m getting about 2850 FPS out of them and shooting consistently under 1/2 MOA. I found a few...

    Tikka T1X

    Frank, I have two Midas TACs and a Athlon Ares BTR and ETR. Given the current sale they are running on the Ares I would buy one of those. $550 for the 4.5-27x50 Ares BTR is a pretty insane deal. If they were not on sale though I would buy the Midas TAC. The glass is the same so that is a wash...

    New High End Tactical article

    Do you have any plans to look at the new Tract Toric with the PRS reticle? I realize it isn’t really in the same price range as the other optics you are comparing but will probably be on par with the XTRiii. It would be a little out of its league in this comparison but I would really like to...

    Tikka T1X

    Frank, I can’t say for the Tikka but I use Loctite 620 to bed all my AR barrels. It is more of a gap filler than a locker. It hardens and has a really high temperature rating which takes care of any play you may have between the receiver and barrel tenon. It works great on my AR’s and when I...

    Tikka T1X

    This was the first three shots at 200 yards. The Center x wasn’t shooting as flat as the Edge at the same velocity. I didn’t measure this group but I know it would have been smaller if I had actually been trying to shoot s group. I was actually shooting at the center bullseye. We had a 5mph wind...

    Tikka T1X

    Made it to the range again today. I have been using Eley Edge for matches and after last week seeing how well the Lapua Center X performed in my rifle I decided to try switching to Center X and see what happens. Here are a few groups I shot after I zeroed it with the new ammo. After the groups I...

    Eley high velocity

    I’m pretty sure Eley uses the same lube on all their bullets. As for the high velocity stuff for spinners you need to actually hit the spinner before the extra velocity will help :-) I really like Eley ammo and shoot it or Wolf ME which they also make almost exclusively. The high velocity...

    Tikka T1X

    Dave, we are opposite here. The GRS is roughly $650 and the KRG is $370. The stock I got was a perfect drop in. All I had to do was tighten the two action screws. I think the grip on it may be larger than it appears. I honestly don’t really notice because I don’t wrap my thumb around it like a...

    Ruger Precision Rimfire

    The rifle is amazingly light which is what I was going for. It is much easier for him to maneuver at matches with it. It also looks like it will be a lot more accurate than his factory barrel. It seems like the more rounds we get through it the better it shoots. That’s what happened with my T1x...

    Ruger Precision Rimfire

    Update on the Whistlepig barrel. After taking the rifle completely apart and cleaning everything the barrel shot much better. It was pretty consistently shooting groups around 1/2” at 50 yards with Eley Edge and Wolf ME. I still would like to get some more ammo through it to see what it is...

    Tikka T1X

    Paul, I’m working on making a magazine holder like short action precision makes for the CZ and a round holder like they make for centerfire ammo using elastic strapping. If the strapping doesn’t work for the round holder I’ll machine some plastic to do the same thing. Once I get the design...

    Tikka T1X

    I’m glad you found the issue. As I said in an earlier post my friends was doing the exact same thing and he had it bound in the chassis. I dropped mine in a KRG Bravo and I absolutely love the chassis. In fact I like it so much I think I may get one for my centerfire rifle. It is a much...

    Tikka T1X

    Some Something is obviously wrong with your rifle. A friend of mine had one that was doing the same thing after he put it in a KRG chassis. As soon as I looked at his rifle I knew something wasn’t right. I flipped it upside down in my vise. As soon as I loosened the front action screw the...

    Savage b22 fv-sr

    I had three 10rd magazines that were all about 3 years old. All three started to fail at the same time. Unfortunately it was at a match. If I loaded 10 rounds in one of them it would spray all 10 out of the magazine as soon as I put it in the rifle. All Three didn’t do this but all three were...

    Savage b22 fv-sr

    A lot of people talk trash about the Savage but I used a MKii FVSR as my match rifle for quite awhile. I put it in a Boyd’s stock and as long as I got it an ammo it liked it shot amazing. My only real gripe about it is the magazines. The magazines are not made well at all. Once they start to...

    Tikka T1X

    Got out to the range again today and did a little ammo testing now that I have 500 rounds through the rifle. Pretty much everything I shot was shooting well at 50 yards. When I stretched it out to 100 I could see where the quality ammo really made a difference though. I have a 100yd KYL rack...

    Tikka T1X

    Very well put JSchell and much more comprehensive than my posts. I will add that anytime a bullet goes transonic your point of impact typically gets crazy. A friend and I were both shooting a 308 at 1000 yards. My rifle had a 26” barrel and his had a 20” barrel. Both rifle were dead on at 900...

    Tikka T1X

    I currently have a 20 MOA rail on my T1X and it will get me to just shy of 300 yards. I plan to buy a set or the Burris XTR rings eventually which will give me another 20 MOA. For the creedmoor honestly if you want to shoot accurately to 1 mile I would invest in another rifle. It just isn’t...

    Tikka T1X

    Wouldn’t it be simpler to cut down the factory barrel? Mine is just as accurate as any after market barrel I have tried.
