Re: More on knife sharpening. 10 days ago by Warrick Edmonds Re: More on knife sharpening.

Just had to laugh when I noticed what I called this thread, the title of it. That applies to me all right.

Re: Sightron SIIISS3510X44LRMD vs SIIISS624X50LRMD 21 days ago by John D. Hays - New Mexico Re: Sightron SIIISS3510X44LRMD vs SIIISS624X50LRMD

Well, let me tell you what I am trying to do on scopes here with this plethora of rifles. Magnums: Sightron SIII SS 6-24 x 50 MOA with Mil-Dot reticles Non-Magnum Calibers: Sightron S-TAC 4-20 x 50 with MOA-2 reticles Other Non-Magnums, wood-stocked: Sightron 2-10 x 32 with Duplex Reticles All of these are 30mm diameter scopes so I can move the SIII scopes around to the non-Magnums without worrying about changing and aligning mounts. Mostly though, I don't move scopes. I like them to mate for li..

Hi John, yes its a tough call. I have been trying to convice Sightron to use the 3-16 S-Tac as a base design for a 16 power SIII but its taking some 'nagging'. I was doing dog tuckers a few days ago, goats at 500 to 530 yards. Steph called 520 on one goat so I dialed up and got to work. The ranges changed as the animals moved but knowing the Practical, I really only needed a base setting, then aim with a wee bit of hold under for my first shot, neck shot second shot, neck shot third shot, body s..

Re: Free Android ballistics calculator 29 days ago by Scott Struif Re: Free Android ballistics calculator

Sorry for all the comments. I should have entitled this thread, "My scope blog." The other issue I've got is, with a 90 degree bolt throw and extra-low rings, eyepiece size is a major issues. I think I'll take my rifle up to Leupold and see if they'll make me a 38-40mm scope with their (discontinued, of course) German #4 reticle.

Re: Free Android ballistics calculator 29 days ago by Nathan Foster Re: Free Android ballistics calculator

Chris Murphy, if you happen across this thread... Scott is a fan of Leupold. Would you be so kind as to post the model of Leupold you are using. From memory, yours ticked all of the boxes, compact yet far reaching. The sight picture was clear out past 1k when I looked through it and it tracked well.

Re: .308 Winchester hack rifle considerations. 1 month ago by Aussie Hunter Re: .308 Winchester hack rifle considerations.

My opinion, maybe buy the Model 7 if itís an option and suits you. I have a Tikka CTR, itís short compact and has a medium barrel and 10 shot mag. I use it from the car but can carry it. Itís my Hack something Iím not precious about scratching and comes threaded. It is my first 7mm-08 but they make .308 and come up occasionally secondhand at reasonable prices. Not sure bout where you are

Re: New phone won't work... 1 month ago by Scott Struif Re: New phone won't work...

I see your point, and agree with you. But unfortunately, with a phone, you haven't much choice. There are hacks you can do with a phone, like turning off the microphone. I never use mine, unless I'm on hold and switch to speakerphone. So I could disable it. But google is going to collect your search data no matter what device or operating system you use. Even if you don't log in to a google account, they'll track you by your IP address. So unless you're a computer wiz and know how to spoof your ..

Re: Cheaper rifle bore scope available 1 month ago by Scott Struif Re: Cheaper rifle bore scope available

Robert's observation about the muzzle needing more cleaning is interesting, because everybody cautions, "don't fuck up the crown." We're all wary of it. I'll be curious where this seemingly anal thread leads. No offense intended.

Re: Cheaper rifle bore scope available 1 month ago by Paul Leverman Re: Cheaper rifle bore scope available

I found an old carbon fibre arrow, cut the threaded insert off, took the knock out, and used it the same way. Adds stability and reach. Now it works great. Also found that if you thread the "small calibre" adapter on and lock the camera tip as far out as it goes, the view is better (in a 30 cal anyway). Really like it now, thanks for the hot tip Robert.

Re: Smoke & mirrors 2 months ago by Alvaro Piqueras Re: Smoke & mirrors

Quote: Scott Struif ... On the Cutting Edge website is this statement: "Boat Tail - Rear tapered portion of a bullet intended for shooting further than 400 yards. It is useless under that yardage and flat base bullets are a better choice as they stabilize, or go to sleep, quicker than boat tailed bullets. At further distances however boat tails have a higher BC and retain their energy much better than flat base bullets. Boat tail bullets do not fully stabilize in less than 300 yards but may stil..

Brush Gun Test 1 3 months ago by Magnus Vassbotn Brush Gun Test 1

Hi! For a while now, I've been intrigued by the concept of a brush gun. Partly for practical purposes, and partly just out of curiosity. I've been contemplating a 9,3x62 in between my 30-06 and 45-70, to serve as a brush gun, and at the same time have a bit more practical reach than the 45-70. So this test was partly about finding out whether there is any point in getting a 9,3x62 (other than for the sake of just having one, a totally valid reason). Also it's interesting to put the 45-70 through..

Re: Savage Model 25 Rifles 3 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: Savage Model 25 Rifles

One thing I notice is you got to like a rifle and you got to have confidence in it. No point buying a rifle you don't like because then you'll loose confidence in it. If I was after 223 the rifles I would look at are. Cz 527 beautiful set trigger but does have protruding mag. Cz forget model that has floor plate compared to magazine. Howa mini protruding mag but nice handy rifle, would probably get heavy barrel model. Model 7 stainless you could argue that your better off with model 700 instead...

agree with above comments that a bolt would be better option....now there is a VERY talented chap over in your part of the world who makes some fantasic shooting rifles on all sorts of actions,including break barrels....I will go back onto www.huntingnut and bump a thread containing many of his builds for you to have a look at and make up your own mind.....being in same country as yourself,a phonecall at least might give you some idea of what you are looking at.

Re: Break Barrel action as a long range platform 3 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Break Barrel action as a long range platform

Hi Randy, I went over this some time ago here on the forums but cannot find the thread just now. This is a handgun that has been dressed up as a rifle. In plain terms, this is not ideal for starting out. It will set up bad habits due to the stock pitch and poor cheek weld. Optics generally have to be set high and back towards the shooters face. The butt is by contrast low. In form, it is akin to attempting to learn boxing with ones weight on the back foot. The barrel will always be at the mercy ..

Re: Me or the Rifle, it's me 3 months ago by bryan long Re: Me or the Rifle, it's me

Thanks Michael, reading your posts in the factory ammo thread got me focused to get more from the TAP with field rests. Before coming on this site and reading the books I thought sub MOA was the limit for a hunting gun. That and that a rifle needs resting on a bipod and should only be touched with one hand. Coming on here and seeing people's real world results is super helpful. I can't reload in Ireland so wouldn't have know that factory ammo can give results as low as the .3 and .25 MOA results..

Re: Rifle weight for 7mm rem mag 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Rifle weight for 7mm rem mag

Hi Brian, regarding the books, they each tie into the other. A most important factor is that the books afford me a level of privacy to speak candidly about BS within the entire spectrum of the industry including cost cutting within rifle brands all the way up to issues with the so called top level shooters. The books have qualified statements unlike a forum thread or email where there is only so much space and time to give explanations. Rifles - fundamental understanding of the rifle, various br..

Re: Rifle weight for 7mm rem mag 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Rifle weight for 7mm rem mag

Hi Westerner, quite true, you have summarized this well. Luis's rifle is the middle ground. After bedding and stabilizing or with a heavier optic, some would come in at 10lb to 10.5lb. The figure of 10 to 10.5lb is still within this middle ground between the ultra lights and varmints. Examples include the ADL, BDL, SPS, Bergara etc, bedded and scoped. If you go any lighter than Luis's rig, you may find that the rifle is good to carry but difficult to get a shot away accurately if you have to sna..

Re: Call for Help 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Call for Help

Hi Francis, will break these options down a bit: 1. Order a new cap for the Lee die (cap threads may be damaged but the die threads will be fine). Also order a spare mandrel while you are at it. Note that some importers or retailers stock these parts. Otherwise, order direct from Lee. 2. Redding neck bushing die. I do not know what size bushing you need as I do not know how much spring back you are getting. You will need to measure your current sized ammo if you have any sized ammo that is holdi..

Re: Call for Help 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Call for Help

Hi Francis, no worries. Both the 7 and 8x57 rifle chambers can at times be somewhat oversized at the neck, especially old military chambers. If you skim the shell holder or try to use extra force, it will make matters worse and you will likely ruin the die (the threaded cap section). To remedy this situation, you need to sand the mandrel as shown in the Reloading book. The mandel I was sanding in the book was actually an 8x57, same issue. You may also like to order a second spare mandrel now, ju..
