To those who say lower cost guns aren't "accurate"..

I joined this forum less than a month ago, seeking information & some advice about expanding my tactical gun skills to include longer distance precision shooting. Longest shots would probably be less than 500 yards.

I have a couple of decades of practicing tactical shooting skills behind me, all AR based.

To those who say a lower cost rifle isn't accurate, I say BULLSHIT.

Yesterday, my brother & I were shooting 100 yard targets. I normally shoot at poker chips with a contrasting yard dot in the center for contrast. Chips are 1.5" in diameter, yard dots are .75 diameter. Hitting the chip isn't difficult, hitting center of dot is.

He took an unspent 12 gauge shotgun shell he found laid it atop the 2 Inch foam archery target we use to staple targets to. The primer end pointed at me. He placed a red target dot over the primer so I could see it. The front of the shell was resting against a wood backstop people staple their targets to. My foam backstop rested against it..

1 shot, and I hit the shells primer, igniting the shell, the powder burns are evident. Examine the board and you can see exactly where the shell was laying when hit. The shotgun blast penetrated the plywood backing.

We found the remnant of the shell & the red paper dot..

Now you tell me again how you need a high dollar gun with yada yada yada aftermarket parts to be accurate.

I did this with my .223 Savage Axis II Precision and a Vortex Viper Venom scope I bought less that a month ago shooting my reload of a ArmorAlly 55gr fmg, 24 grains of Alliant 1200r with a CCI 450 primer and a range scavenged case. Twist on rifle is 1:7. Hardly considered an accurate load by many.

So when people ASK for opinions on how to get started, dump the bullshit about needing a gun way outside their budgets, and offer real advice. Don't do describe your "dream gun" you don't own, actually try to help them..

Some GREAT, and very accurate weapons are out there that sell for $400 and up. Ruger, Savage, Remington and others are great starter guns to learn accuracy skills with.

Listen to their questions and offer helpful suggestions, not the same bullshit of "just save up more money" so they can afford a gun you probably don't have yourself.

I may be in the minority on this forum, but for my style of shooting, accuracy is #1, and I think most feel the same. Your "sub MOA" is impressive, but far more when inside the bullseye of the target.

BCM MK2 BFH Govt Profile Accuracy? Also looking Centurion LW

Hey all,

Asking kind of a specific question here that I wasn’t able to find. The new MK2 claims a more rigid upper. Has anyone with real world experience noticed improved accuracy out of them? I’m considering the govt profile

Comparing it also to the centurion “lightweight” barreled uppers. Odd that Centurion call them lightweight - they are actually an ounce heavier than BCM’s govt profile barrel! But I’ve heard that centurion is very accurate as well.

I’m interested in hearing from people that have used high quality or match grade ammo - not m193 or anything. And specifically the MK2 uppers vs the centurion.

Any help appreciated thanks!

Varget vs N140

So I have shot Varget with great success, and other VV powders as well. The price of Varget compared to N140 for an 8# jug is almost $100 difference. Anyone switch to shoot N140 instead of Varget? Is the newer formula of N140 more temp stable compared to years past? I'm looking to buy a few 8# jugs for my 223, 22ARC, and 6br. Any compelling reason to choose one over the other? I'm just thinking if I bought 3 8# jugs of Varget, I could get 4 jugs of VVN140 for the same price. its tempting me.

I checked the internet

So yesterday evening I walked out in my front yard to find a red fox trying to get the neighbors cat. I tried to chase it off but it's not really scared of people it would stay about 50ft away was all.

So I ran next door to warn her. She says they have been here since last year, but she looked it up online and it said they wouldn't mess with domestic animals.

I told her. I am pretty sure they will eat cats based on all the stray cats disappearing over the last year and half or so.

I knew there were some foxes around because they left a chicken carcass in my yard last summer. I also found some tracks in the snow in my drive way this winter. It turns out they have den at an abandoned house less than a block away. And in all liklyhood they ate my cat that I liked and payed to neuter.

So is there any better place to go than online to get biased horseshit information.

DOJ New Gun Sales Requirements


Rule Seeks to Implement Provisions of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act and Provide Clarity on Who Must Obtain a License and Run Background Checks
The Justice Department today announced it has submitted to the Federal Register the “Engaged in the Business” Final Rule, which makes clear the circumstances in which a person is “engaged in the business” of dealing in firearms and thus required to obtain a federal firearms license, in order to increase compliance with the federal background check requirement for firearm sales by federal firearms licensees.
“Under this regulation, it will not matter if guns are sold on the internet, at a gun show, or at a brick-and-mortar store: if you sell guns predominantly to earn a profit, you must be licensed, and you must conduct background checks,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “This regulation is a historic step in the Justice Department’s fight against gun violence. It will save lives.”

"This is a regulatory rule, not a law enacted by Congress. It is likely to be challenged and overturned in courts."
