Re: RIfle Slings 4 months ago by Frank Vallich Re: RIfle Slings

To conclude this thread the following observations. The RS3 sling provides a secure cross body carry allowing freedom of movement. Both arms are available for deployment for whatever task is at hand. An example is having the rifle available while walking with a 20 gauge while shooting grouse. THe BEST feature is the ability to drop to one knee and have stability. No need to insert the support arm through a loop as the sling rides up under the left arm and secures the the rifle into the firing po..

Re: .25/06 loads 5 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: .25/06 loads

One more thing Mike, being a very old rifle, chances are that the throat is getting somewhat worn now. best to give it a quick birthday (polish) before going further ahead. Once the throats become worn, it can pay to use a projectile with a longer bearing surface. In a worn tang safety model with 24" barrel, properly bedded, lugs in full contact, mag box floated, a 100 grain BTSP may hit its sweet spot at velocities of around 3300fps or higher (especially with Superformance powder). It pays to w..

Re: Inquiry re: Copper Fouling with the SST 5 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Inquiry re: Copper Fouling with the SST

Hi David, just a couple of important points to go over first. Never shoot 10 shot groups with this rifle, that is to say, do not let this barrel get hot. If you want to put 10 shots on a target, try to keep the rifle at ambient temps all the way through (up to an hour or more). If you want to test to see how the rifle holds its zero under pressure (for follow up shots on game), perform this session once, after developing your optimum load. Do not use scotchbrite on this particular chamber. This ..

Re: Cleaning slow fouling bore question 6 months ago by Ryan Tockstein Re: Cleaning slow fouling bore question

Will do! I shot yesterday and had 31 rounds through the bore without cleaning the copper. My groups for the first 31 rounds were better than yesterday's. But, the only copper I see near my muzzle after 52 rounds is this tiny bit https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O4U_8_iki-KPAo6C29-gEOgR6IIlxm8G/view?usp=drivesdk [https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O4U_8_iki-KPAo6C29-gEOgR6IIlxm8G/view?usp=drivesdk] So, I'm not sure if I just shot very poorly yesterday, or if my good load of 60.4gr is actually only ..

Re: RIfle Slings 6 months ago by Mike Heyl Re: RIfle Slings

Scott - I too read the book and was initially a bit confused. I posted a link in this thread a month ago about the Latigo sling. When I went back and watched the video link in that post - combined it with the pictures in the book it made more sense to me. As near as I can tell both designs are very similar in the loop design/loop keepers.

Re: 168gn A-max in 30-06 7 months ago by Jack Dunross Re: 168gn A-max in 30-06

Hey Bob, i asked this question in another thread, but it is probably more relevant here. How do you find the 168 eld-m performs out of the 30-06 at close ranges? I'm tossing up between a 30-06 and a 308 as my next rifle and by reading through the forum, i've noticed that you use both. I'll mostly be targeting Fallow, Reds and Pigs at close ranges in dense forrest, but also stretching out at longer ranges for Roos and general target work on open farm land. The 308 seems pretty perfect, but i'm wo..

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 8 months 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.

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. 8 months 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.

Re: New phone won't work... 8 months 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 ..

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 9 months 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.

Brush Gun Test 1 10 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..
