Apple and guns

Here in Finland we internet market place, something like craigslist. They have own apple and android apps available. Now, "hunting" section is not available on these apps.

Re: accuracy with cz 527 or should i say lack of accuracy

I guess I should not say, but you have better caliber (except bullet selection) for bolt action than 300blk.
With my knowledge today, I would rather rebarrel 7,62x39 with .308 barrel instead of .300blk. Wouldn´t loose anything (except factory ammo), but get more power if needed.

Re: Hornady 300BLK 190gr Sub-X in Gel

Any ideas how it acts when shot directly to gel?
How deep bullet will travel before it begins to mushroom/lose pedals?

Just thinking how this would work as sub sonic varmint bullet, on small varmints soft tissue.

Re: Newb with a RARR, can, heavy subs, pistol powder.

Ah, my bad :D I didn´t think H110 as pistol powder (which it is offcourse) because it is quite much equivalent with VV N110/120 which are rifle powders. I consider VV N300 series as pistol powders. About US powders, I´m totally newbie. But that information about H110 was new to me, thanks. I have it...

Re: Newb with a RARR, can, heavy subs, pistol powder.

Again, just my opinions: Case filling ain´t problem in 300blk with any powder. If someone refers to "Reduced-Charge Detonation" or such, please show me some real report of this myth? As far as I can know, any powder manufacturer or proof/reaserch instance hasn´t ever be able to produce such thing in...

Re: Newb with a RARR, can, heavy subs, pistol powder.

By my limited experience, vihtavuori pistol powders N340-350 are much better for subs than N110/120.
More accurate and also quieter, you can notice difference by your ears.
We are talking about bolt lock, right?

Re: Vihtavouri N110, clean and accurate

for subs in bolt action, N340 beats N110 10-0 in loudness and accuracy.
