Re: Why is it so hard to shoot subs?

Dellet, I always appreciate your info and wise counsel. I have some BLK brass being lovingly prepped now for some long awaited sub testing. It was a long darn winter up here, with rain and windy conditions nearly every afternoon lately. I have had such good results with the 208 Amax, gonna try the E...

Re: Why is it so hard to shoot subs?

Good discussion gents. Growing up, I learned to shoot cast bullets in SA handguns at stupid long distances...well, because Elmer could do it. Some of this bullet lobbing has transferred to my BLK sub loads, hits are easier when you picture the hold over in the form of an arc. I had a lovely lass wat...

Re: Setting up a rifle optic

Yes sir, scope height has botched more than one dope card. Especially important to check that number in some programs, they often default to the 1.5" or your last setting. We were wringing out a 7 mag LR build, me as the spotter, the dope just not working for my bud. Exactly the issue, he forgot the...

Re: Come and take it.

I lived in West Seattle for 18 years, beginning in 1976. It was a pretty nice city and you could make a good living, but the underground alternative lifestyle types began to gain more influence in local and state politics. It's a hot mess like most cities and states where the elected 'leaders' are c...

Re: RARR now available with AR Magazine

I emailed Ruger in regard to any potential retro fit stock or otherwise and the simple answer is NO. A close look at the new model will make the reason clear. Disappointed, I have 2 of the RARR and asked why this was not done right in the first place. I indicated one of my mags was a shoddy POS and ...

Re: 300 blk out accuracy with cast bullets and seperate jacketed bullets

To get groups tighter than 1 inch requires some match style case prep (annealing, trimming, etc.) and the right powder choice. 110 Vmax's and 125 TNT's will shoot inch or less, OAL is often the variable making the accuracy difference. I have had nice results with H110, 300 MP and 296 for these light...

Re: 2018 shooting challenge

I bet he shot those across the hood of the truck at 200 yds and is just goin easy on us. The way weather is happening, it may be March before a suitable shootin day happens. I'm thinkin my RARR in .223 and 110 Vmax in the BLK RARR, look forward to more marksmanship from you all.

Re: 2018 shooting challenge

Sounds like a fun challenge, I have a load/rifle combo capable to do this....but.... It was -11 this morning, storm that dumped about a foot of snow that took 2.5 days to get cleaned up here at home and our rental. Several test loads are ready for better weather. You folks down South let me know how...

Re: Dellet Says This Coming Soon To Montana

Some of us from Montana would argue that these kinds of disparaging comments are really quite upsetting for the sheep. Now you may have a glimpse of just what those knee high cowboy boots were designed for. :)
