    Tritium night sights

    So I have a new XDM 10mm, more mags, ammo, & holster on the way. Looking into which night sights to install. Trigicon, or Truglo? Right now leaning towards the Trigicon HD, maybe the HD XR. Anyone have experience with the Truglo & Trijicon? Which do you prefer & why? Thanks

    XDM 10mm GTG or NO

    Thinking about getting one primarily for outdoor protection in place of my Ruger SBH 45LC which is getting bigger & heavier every year. What do you think? Are they accurate? Is the 5.25" worth it over the 4.5"? I think I want the long one but I want night sights. Haven't found any for the 5.25"...

    Kilo & AB difference

    Ran the same data through both units & didn't get the same results. Had to adjust MV on the Kilo up 25fps to match. Anyone know why? I entered the exact same data the Kilo app showed @ 818yds & the Kilo was .5 mil higher.

    Backpacking food

    Looking to pack into the wilderness for the high buck this year. 1st time since just after 911. Looking at light weight food for the hunt. I like some of the Mountain House bkfst & dinners but they are only 200-300 calories per serving. I'm likely to be burning 4 times that per day. Are any of...

    Terrapin X app

    Just had to do a complete factory reset on my phone then replaced it under warranty. Terrapin X app downloaded fine a few days ago but today it's gone. Can't even find it in the app store. Where's it gone?

    Kestrel screen blacked out

    Don't know where to ask this so I guessed here would be best. My old Kestrel 4500nv screen blanked out on me for a while today. It was out in 35* temps for a few hours & when I turned it back on after it timed out (15min) the screen wouldn't come on. When I got home I turned it on & it worked...

    What happened

    I've been hunting for most of my life and I've seen a few bullets do weird things but this one I can't explain. My muley bedded down in the canyon @ 218yds & -8* declination. 338Win 250 Accubond @ 2800fps. Deer was laying just quartering away from me facing to my left. Hit him exactly where I...

    Kilo2400 Compass

    How often do you have to calibrate the compass in your Kilo2400? I did it when I 1st got but it was never right. I overrode the reading & manually entered it. Now I've recalibrated it & will see if it sticks. Am I the only one?

    Gen2 focus & parallax

    Had my brand new Gen 2 4.5-27 out for its 1st shots last weekend and thought I noticed an issue with the focus at ELR range. I zeroed and shot for tracking/dope at 750, 920, 1130, 1410, and 1710 yds. Everything was spot on until I got to 1710 yds. By this time the sun had begun to come out and...

    Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27 vs ATACR 5-25 F1

    Looking to finally upgrade my old NXS 5.5-22X56 to one of these but can't actually look them over in person. Anyone have real world knowledge for comparison? Mostly interested in Actual elevation travel (have a 40 moa base) and optical clarity. The warranty for both appear to be about the same...

    N565 or 570 for 300WM

    Curious about these powders. I've heard that they are very clean, and have little to no lot variation so I was thinking about trying it. Rifle is a 300WM, 28" 1-9.5 twist and I'll be running the Hornady 225 ELD-m. According to my software my current load with H-1000 is pushing these @ 2870 fps...

    Magnetospeed vs Calculated MV

    Help me out here. I'm trying to understand why my ballistics apps, & programs are ALWAYS requiring a higher MV than my chrony's are giving. I've been wrestling with this since FFS DeltaIII (which I'm still using) going back over 2 barrels on my 300WM. This last time out I was testing the 225...

    SIG AB Truing function

    Hoping maybe Doc can give me some answers but if anyone else has any ideas please chime in. So I was able to get out yesterday and did some testing @ 922 yds. I was verifying my 230 Hybrid, and 225 ELDM loads and truing my various software to my newly rebarreled 300WM. FFS was right on right out...

    300 WM Brass options

    Gentlemen I've been using Win brass in my 300 for years & have several hundred with 7 firings on them. I think I'll get a few more out of them but obviously they are about done in. So I bought a couple 50 packs of new Win brass & I'm pissed. A full 1/4 of them had heavy machine marks &...

    Cold & Hot Load

    Ok I just got my load dialed in with the 230gr Berger But my load development was in the cold. 24*-36*. Shot sub .2 moa. However last outing was 45* & my velocity had increased significantly. Still shot well for the conditions but MV has increased from 2840 to 2853fps last time. Have any of you...

    AB truing question

    Hi all. I was wondering if the truing function in AB actually takes all the atmospheric & inclination/ declination etc into account from the solution. I ask because the solver simply asks for a range & actual dope. Does it actually use the solution in the background? If so I wonder why it needs...

    Ladder analysis

    Round 3 in my ladder testing. 300WM 230 Hybrid Target. H-1000 Prior 2 ladder tests showed 2 nodes. One around 2900 fps, and a lower one at around 2800 fps. The upper node was inconsistent but the lower one is almost too consistent. My thought is to proceed with seating depth using #4 (73.6gr)...

    AB Berger 230 Hyb BC

    I was just comparing AB, Strelok pro & Trasol. At first AB was predicting 10moa difference from the other 2 solvers @ 1 mile, (all inputs are the same) & I ended up trying a basic G7 BC in place of the CDM I purchased earlier. Then I changed it back to the CDM & it was much closer. Don't know...

    Where to go from here?

    In the final stages of load development for my rebarreled 300WM. Benchmark 1-9.5" for Berger 230, &/or Hornady 225's. I have the charge weight set at 76.0 gr H-1000 from my 2 ladder tests. 1st was .3 gr increments @ 550 yd, followed up with .1gr increments @ 875 yd. My last ladder put 3 into...
