    Wind Studies

    Hey, I got thinking about this thread today and was wondering if there are any rules of thumb to help predict wind speed at max ordinance? given we know the speed 5 ft from the ground and type of vegetation. To keep it simple I guess we ignore terrain and assume its flat. My guess is that...

    What do you put in your pack?

    That's a really great idea, and I think it fits what I expected. I've been listening to the every day sniper, frank and Caylen were talking about stripping their MREs. That's hardcore.

    What do you put in your pack?

    Well this is all good to think about. I know disaster is never all that far away but I'm not the kind to worry about it all that much. There also tends to be a lot of hunters in the area so maybe the rape whistle would get their attention if I ever need it. Makes you wonder if most hunters would...

    What do you put in your pack?

    Yeah I understand being prepared and I guess it comes down to what each indavidual feels comfortable with. I'd just like an idea of things people actually find useful in the feild. Not to bash your guys setups, because I have no idea what your hunting situation is like. But I'm going to be...

    What do you put in your pack?

    When I go to the range I try to be over prepared but I dont want to take too much crap out on a hunt and drag it around for the week. I dont plan on the Russians attacking Haha. Seeing as it will be pretty cold out by then I plan to be back in my own bed every night. I live at the base of the...

    What do you put in your pack?

    Help setting up my Minox ZP5 please.

    I think you're the only one who can answer that. If I were you I'd probably go with the extra 10moa but if your regularaly shooting at 600 yards which is somewhere around 3 mils then youd be sitting right at 14 Mils left, this would put you fairly close to mechanical zero and give you the best...

    Scope my Havak for $2,500

    Would anyone recomend the uso B17? Im just curious if that is just residual feelings for how people liked the LR 17 or if the B17 is just not in the running at all? I have a similar dilemma but recently my wife told me to just get the scope I'd be happy with the longest. So I got thinking of the...

    Am I hallucinating or did the "Vertically split rings" thread disappear?

    I like this place... there are some good people but there's definatly a lot of politics and some culture that I just dont quite get. And I dont really care to, i will say it's easier to spot the trolls on facebook. I'm sure I've said stupid things on here but I'm fine with being a fool if...

    What's a good inexpensive backpack for hunting?

    Looked at the vorns but landed back on the eberlestock. Ordered the gun slinger (GS05M) today from optics planet. Same price as the vorn fox but more space. I think it'll do what I need it to.

    7mm Creedmoor

    Yeah the VLDs have less bearing surface than the Eldx, I think my load would push those 168s over 3k. So if this guy is pushing the 162eldm at 2820 I bet he would be close to 2900+ with the vld, I dont have too much expirience with the vld but that's just what I've read. At that he could cut the...

    7mm Creedmoor

    So isn't this thread about the 7mm creedmoor? I think it would be a more productive conversation to figure out where it fits in the grand scheme of 7mm's. I'm really curious about it because of the terminal ballistics on game out of a short action. I guess it would be a slight step down from the...

    7mm Creedmoor

    Just stopped by our of curiosity... but holy cow! 2820fps? My 7mm rem mag is pushing the 162eldx at 2940 out of a 24" barrel. That's gotta be running close to %30 less powder for 120fps drop in velocity. I guess that would change a lot of views on the .280 rem Good stuff, I'm even more...

    FL die set up (need help)

    Sorry didn't see your post before I wrote mine, that makes sense. Ill run the die down to the shell holder then do one full turn back. And I'll check to see if they all fit. I'll see if the wife will let me spend any more on tools this month!

    FL die set up (need help)

    I've been considering buying them anyway so it's probably worthwhile investment. I didn't even think about sizing the body, can I resize with out bumping and check to see if it fits? If they do I'll load them and shoot them till they dont fit but if it doesn't (sounds more likely) then I can...

    FL die set up (need help)

    I read through the Reloading 101 posts and Learned a lot that I had never considered. So now I'm sitting here with once fired 7mm rem mag brass and would like to shoulder bump .002". My problem is that my brass fits fine the way it is. So, do I take the Decapping pin/expander ball out and...
