    Need some guidance

    About handloading, one of the enticements (to me in the early 1990's) was the idea of saving cash, and at the time, I was shooting mainly handgun, and loading mainly 45ACP. Well that never happened. Then I started shooting rifle, and that's when my handloading took off to another level. My...

    Let's ask the Cherokee Nation what they think

    I'm 1/2 Viking descendant, 1/4 County Mayo Irish, and 1/8 each English and German. Not a single one of my forebears was on this continent before my Grandparents. Everything Langelius/Marrett/Lavin in North America is from the 20th century onward. We didn't own slaves, because there weren't any...

    I could give a fuck about Khashoggi

    The MSM is dripping in their panties over the prospect of further screwing up US relationships in the ME. This whole issue is sucker bait. Screw WaPo, screw their pet Saudi columnist, screw anyone who says we should dump on our best Anti-Iran ally. At least half our problems in the ME are...

    Need some guidance

    For the target application, any of the mentioned chamberings would be fine. For hunting, start at the heavy bullet end of the selections first. For off-the-shelf distance and accuracy, I like the Savage Predator. My own preference is for the .260, but the 6.5CM has become more popular of late...

    Let's ask the Cherokee Nation what they think

    I still say she's Fauxcahontas... And If I'm actually wrong, I gladly offer my 1/1024th part of an apology... Her problem isn't that she's confused about her heritage, it's that her constituents are confused about what country they're living in. I can recall when Schumer was the...

    I fear leftist blood will flow soon

    Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot; they all were able to get their followers to commit mass genocide. As much I a would really like to believe that can't happen here, we still have the crazies like Bernie and Fauxchontas getting elected and reelected to high public office right here in our beloved USA...

    Shooter seeing his own trace

    No, I don't do pictures, never have in the nearly two decades I've been on the site. Maybe somebody here can try this and if they like it, provide the forum with some pics. Yes, it does seem weird at first. I've been posting here about this technique for over a decade. Some here have overcome...

    Shooter seeing his own trace

    When the shot breaks on the stabilized rifle, the eye will soon automatically go to a point about 3-4x the height of the target, and the trace will just up and appear. It's pretty automatic. Its also simply not something that can be achieved with the rifle hopping around. When it works, there's...

    Shooter seeing his own trace

    I use a rifle setup which combines a bipod with a slack sling loaded with the elbow to employ the upper body's weight to eliminate bipod hop. I have seen both glint trace, and aerodynamic trace. I usually pick it up at about 400-500yd, and can follow it into the 1000yd target and see it strike...

    Good powder I can use for a 223

    I use Varget for all my .223 loads, for bullet weights from 50gr to 75gr. I don't worry about metering because I use an automatic electronic powder dispenser (RCBS Chargemaster Lite), which is essentially a high/low speed trickler. So far, the weights are either on, or obviously not. The...

    Bullet Weight

    Manufacturers' QC standards are more stringent than what's necessary to see issues in performance. Aside from an occasional goof, weighing, measuring, and segregating components is not needed unless you like doing extra, unnecessary work. This is a sport, not a job; shooters are human, not...

    Periodic Bolt Action Maintenance

    I use the Tipton bolt recess and chamber cleaning setup, and lube the bolt lugs with a grease intended for firearms. I've been using the same tube of Tetra for this for going on two decades, but many other good grease products are available, too. I use a very thin coating of Lubriplate on the...

    Theoretical question for a "no wind" zero

    This^^^, because every one of my chambers is cut to SAAMI spec, much the same as was very likely the case way back yonder in the early BR days. I do it because my guns are my family legacy, and I have no plans for leaving firearms in their hands that require specially spec'd ammunition in order...

    RO’s shooting the course before the match

    While I have never run a match or seriously competed in a match where lucrative prizes were won and lost, I offer no criticism of them. Prohibiting RO's from shooting the match, IMHO, may well result in COF problems being undetected. I think they should shoot the match both before and during...

    And so it begins...

    Not bad, but I'd rather put the first volley a bit high, and see how many are still left. IMHO their bark is not just worse than their bite, it's probably all they're good for. If I'm wrong, we'd still have time to lower our aim. Options, people; options... I prefer the option that gets the...

    I fear leftist blood will flow soon

    I would hope we're all right, but for as long as we invest our effort in disagreement, that would be impossible. Just as "all roads lead to Rome", I hope we're accepting that our own other ideas are equally valid, unlike the thinking of the Left, where lockstep is the only step. Their rigidity...

    And so it begins...

    I expect people to disagree with me and I welcome the fact. It is proof positive that at least for the present, the Constitution is on a sound foundation. When that's no longer the case, I would not mind getting a copy of your lists because I honestly trust your judgement in such matters. I'm...
