Re: First Reloading Press Recommendations

I started with the Hornady single stage kit. I got bullets for free as well but I’m not sure if they still do that. I honestly regretted by the kit because over 6 months I upgraded the powder measure to the one with a scale. I have almost all Hornady stuff and I love it. I don’t need progressive bec...

Brass question

So I’m finally getting around to loading my 300blk. Most of my loading is just having fun at the range. However I do hunt hogs in Texas. I have a ton of LC that I can cut. I do have about 300-400 rounds of once fired (mostly by me) in Hornady, ficcochi, and Remington. I have some never fired lapua a...

Re: I need optic advise, please help!!!

Not sure I understand your worry, but i've never hunted in Texas. The lighting for the fiber optic can be adjusted down to zero, thats the knob back by the eyepiece Even using the ACOG if it is too bright the answer was to block/tape off light to the fiber to keep the reticle from getting fuzzy The...

Re: I need optic advise, please help!!!

I'm just unsure if I can shoot a 4x at say 10 yards or less? I've been in contact with hogs at just under 10 yards. If your up wind of them they really don't know until you get on top of them. RMR gives me that dot for close quarters. I know there are people that can keep both eyes open which I can ...

Re: I need optic advise, please help!!!

So I looked it up there are a few sellers with the 1x6 sig in stock. I'm in Texas and it gets super freaking bright most of the time so that's why I'm worried about fiber optic. We have to have bright sights to really see them and illuminated sights against a black hog is pretty worthless. The sig s...

I need optic advise, please help!!!

Long story short $2200 in EOTech sights are at EOTech awaiting their refund. I'm going all over the place on what optic to replace them with in my .300blk. I'm using an AAC 9.5" SBR. There is a can attached to it at times. I'm using subs and supers and will finally start reloading them as I am final...
