My impressions of the Arken optics EP4 4-16X50

I generally do not do reviews. Mostly because I tend to be very critical of things that almost always end up being more negative than they really are. But with that being said I felt compelled to write about my recent Arken scope purchase. I was not given this scope, I bought it and paid full price ...

Re: New Montana Law - Dellet Crying

Stayed tuned for a Fake News exclusive! Montana cowboys rally at the Capitol in Helena to protest the new law criminalizing the use of 'knee high' boots that entrap innocent sheep as sex slaves. The local farm and ranch supply stores have pulled these boots from the shelves. Local animal activists ...

Re: Lead rings? Here's why

Yeah, I wasn't expecting much because of all the other <$50 bore scopes I have bought in the past. It has a big long thread on another website with nothing but positive things to say about it. It has helped me start figuring out why some Savages shoot great while others do not. I am also cataloging ...

Re: Couple Q's on repeat-ability and desired tolerances...

Uniform and deburr the flash holes. That is one thing I still do to every case. Doing it made the single biggest difference when I used to shoot groups. Case fill is also very important because powder position can impact velocity. I tested loads by first loading then pointing the muzzle at the groun...

Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

Sounds like I may be done with these then. It already takes nearly 2 hours for 50 rounds, and thats without adding another handful of steps. I don't have that kind of time. The only additional step should be belling the case mouth. Everything else is just a matter of adjusting the die to remove the...

Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

Are you belling the case mouth before seating? These, like all cast bullets, need a bell on the case mouth. If not the coating, and diameter, can be removed causing stability issues. If you have IMR 4227 I would try 10 grains then go up or down from there. I would start with the overall length you a...

Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

My sweet wooden crate of 100 came in last night. Will see about preppong some brass tonight but I have a weekend getaway coming up I still haven't even begun to pack for...so that takes precedence. I like that they're noticeably shorter than 208 ELD, as that indicates they may stabilize out of my 6...
