    Why do people seem down on Savage rifles?

    ^^^^ This IIRC, there was a ".38Spec brass and ball bearing" fix.

    looking mighty snipery to me

    It's probably shot quite a few watch dogs before a breaching action I'd wager. :)

    Certainly looks like a "War of the Rats" type environment...

    iPhone vs foretrex vs kestrel

    @Lowlight has both as well (come to think of it). I'd be curious to hear his opinion between the two (if it doesn't put him in a awkward position).

    Space Force

    I'd think inconel or alloy 22 would be better...but how much do you spend on (basically) dropping a rock?

    iPhone vs foretrex vs kestrel

    I'd think @Kestrel Ballistics would have to make one with an open API so that all vendors could then code their software (an interface layer with a cron job of some sort that polls the sensors for updates) to integrate with the hardware. This is assuming the other ballistic s/w packages can...

    iPhone vs foretrex vs kestrel

    They're both waterproof. And AB measures AJ, not Kestrel or Garmin. And both Kestel Elite and Garmin 701 comes with the full CDM library. The wind measurement capability of the Kestrel is a plus if you're starting out and/or if your in wind value over 15mph (hard to visually call it past that...

    Peterson 6.5cr Brass

    I would hope so, since that is the intent of small primer pocket brass; stronger, longer lasting case life.

    When I was younger, I used get told all the time I could be confused for Jim Carey (unfortunately). Some of my more animated Lance Corporals and PFC's used to make comments about "now we know what Fire Marshall Bill would be like as a Marine NCO"...the little shits. I'd have them splicing...

    Peterson 6.5cr Brass

    Small primered CM brass is well known to have slightly lower velocities to begin with, and with the smaller case capacity, you may very well have to settle for an even (slightly) lower velocity. I haven't seen anyone do it (which doesn't someone hasn't), but I'd wager the smaller case capacity...

    thread subscription/following?

    Is there a limit on threads that can be followed, or do they "age out"? I ask, because some threads I have tagged to watch, or ones I have posted within, never pop on my alerts after awhile. Any reason behind this?

    iPhone vs foretrex vs kestrel

    In theory (rumor has it) the AB Connect app will also eventually support the Garmin 701. And from a sync perspective, the Garmin is waaaayyyy easier than dealing with Win 10 BT for loading AB gun profiles. Different horses for courses...everyone has their preference.

    Why do people seem down on Savage rifles?

    This ^^^ I hear it occasionally from the typical old(er) fat guy at the range. You know, the one shooting groups at 100 yds on a 8" shoot-n-c target, off a bench, in a rifle rest, while eating a doughnut, and picking his ass. I think it humorous that so many folks are defensive about the...

    Advanced Sniper Rifle Solicitation

    I think that has more to do with the fact that the military is largely mechanized, and (largely) trucked into combat, not hoofing it in on their black cadillacs (or brown as the case may be these days). It's the same reason PFT's are slowly migrating to be strength based, rather than stamina...

    Looking for a source for Sako TRG 22 6.5 Creedmoor Magazines

    Volume. They fit the Canadian Service rifle contract they won a few years back. IIRC, they had to supply 3 mags with each rifle. That's a lot of mags...and probably why thy wanted to make them slightly different than the TRG mags.

    So unlike everybody else charging us for bases, Poland offers to pay 2 Billion for us to build a new base

    The only thing the Poles are guilty of, is living on the flattest part of Europe; kind of a highway for invading armies, especially if they have armor.

    iPhone vs foretrex vs kestrel

    If you're going with a Kestrel, the 5700 Elite is the standard (has AB software and Link). The Kestrel rep on this sub-forum is probably a more reliable source than me about the deltas between the various models. @Kestrel Ballistics

    iPhone vs foretrex vs kestrel

    Phones suck for any type of field work (IME). The battery always dies right when you need it, or they overheat (as you mentioned). As to the Kestrel and Garmin, I think it's a personal preference (I have both). The Garmin (to me) is a better form factor and larger screen. It's worn on the...
