    Selling my mounted but unfired 308 AI barrel. bbl length is 24" and is not threaded. This barrel came with the used AT I bought, so I'm unsure of what the twist rate is. I think it's unfired because the rifling is immaculate, there is no visible signs of throat wear, copper fouling or burnt...

    What safe company do you trust most?

    I've decided to get a safe for my rifles. I've been looking at a few companies such as Sturdy, AMSEC, Fort Knox, Kodiak, Rhino, and even Graffunder. Of all, I'm leaning towards Sturdy to secure my valuables, but I want to get an idea of what you guys use. Given your current safe, what would you...

    build a rifle or buy factory?

    I'm left handed and I can't afford a AI. Should I slowly piece together a rifle and have it assembled by a competent gunsmith, or should I buy a semi-custom gun from GA Precision or Mile High? Money is obviously a limiting factor since I can't afford an AI outright.

    Stock recommendations for a post-64 long action model 70

    I picked up my post-64 (mfg 1981) M70 from my new gunsmith today. He threaded the barrel for me so I could suppress it. He also shed light onto some serious problems on my rifle that I didn't know about. A little background: This M70 is chambered in 300winmag and was given to me by my dad...

    Best 300winmag factory ammo for maximizing shot distance?

    I don't have time to reload, but I want to push the limits of my M70 300winmag. It has a Krieger 1:9 26" SS barrel that likes Barnes LRX-BT 190g copper solids. I found this particular cartridge to be an excellent big game hunting/long range shooting crossover. I seem to have lucked out that it...

    Laser range finder for hunting conditions

    Hey everyone, My old range finder finally died (decade old leupold), so I'm on the market for a new one. I want to keep it light weight, compact, and reliably effective on nonreflective targets out to 700 yards. I'm not under pressure to get one for this season because I didn't draw, so I can...

    Should I build a .308win for training?

    I want to build a .308win to train my marksmanship. I'm aware of .308win's limitations, which is exactly why I want to train with it. I figure my deficiencies in my fundamentals will be magnified, giving me better feedback to improve on. Moreover, I'll be forced to make more careful observations...

    Height over bore: how important is it really?

    How much is too much height over bore? I bought a Spuhr SP-5006 mount for my Mark 5 3.8-18. I didn't realize how tall my Nightforce scope rail would sit on top of my model 70 action. After a combination of rookie mistakes, there is a .63" gap between the top of my barrel and bottom of the Mark...

    New guy in East Washington State

    Hi everyone, I suppose this is where I start. I'm looking to join a group of shooters on the east side of Washington/west side of Idaho. I'm a life long shooter, but I'm new to shooting at ranges beyond 500 yards.
