    Rain/snow protection for rifle while strapped to pack

    I thought of those but I don't think they'll fit well over a brake.

    Rain/snow protection for rifle while strapped to pack

    None of these are safe queens, they're all in chassis and they get shot in shitty conditions all the time. Was more just to keep rain/snow/shit out of the end of the barrel and out of the action as I'll be hiking multiple kms with them strapped to my pack (muzzle up as opposed to patrol carry...

    Rain/snow protection for rifle while strapped to pack

    I'm looking for the best suggestion for protecting my rifle from rain/snow while hiking into my long range spots with the rifle strapped to my pack. I have a great scope/action wrap made by Sunrise Tactical but I'd like to also have something over the muzzle as the rifle will be pointed up. Just...

    300 WinMag vs 300 PRC vs 300 Norma

    I'd agree. There really is no replacement for displacement. I'm quite enjoying 220gr LRHTs at 3188 fps, haha.

    300 Norma Mag

    I was correct in my assumption that my barrel was still speeding up shot 2x 5rd groups today to check accuracy/zero and speed. Had to adjust zero up 0.2 and left 01. and barrel sped up by 40fps. Barrel currently sitting at 75rds. Will snowshoe/hike back out to my long range spot again this...

    7 saum

    Anybody have any numbers for water-fill capacity of ADG brass vs Bertram?

    Athlon Cronus Tactical spotting scope Arca plate

    I honestly think all heavy spotters should be set up like the Bushnell LMSS with the ability to put a long pic rail or arca plate on the bottom using 2 bolts.

    Athlon Cronus Tactical spotting scope Arca plate

    Have you tried/do you use that arca plate in an RRS throw lever (like on an Anvil-30)? I ask because I'm using the RRS plate like you were before but I've had the same issues as you with it always coming loose. I was actually thinking of fabbing up a bracket that would go from the bottom mount...

    300 WinMag vs 300 PRC vs 300 Norma

    I went through the same thought process as you when I was planning out my ELR build. Originally planned on going with the .300PRC but was put off by being stuck with Hornady brass (before Lapua announced they'd make brass). Since I was building from the ground up, there really wasn't much...

    Muzzle devices and NV/thermal

    Thanks for that. I know I'm missing a bunch of variables. Calibre-wise it would be for 6.5 Creed or .308 and possibly my .300NM. I'm thinking of getting a clip-on (PVS-30 or -27 most likely but possibly a thermal) and I'm setting up a few rifles to be ready to accept a clip-on without having to...

    Muzzle devices and NV/thermal

    So basically run an A2 or just look into which flash suppressor works best, say one of the Surefires?

    300 Norma Mag

    Interesting. Most guys I've talked to said things stabilized more around the 75-100 round mark. Most of my short action calibers stabilize around 150 or so.

    Muzzle devices and NV/thermal

    Is their an advantage to running a flash suppressor/hider vs a brake when using NV/thermal other than with regards to minimizing your signature? As in, does the flash from a brake temporarily obstruct your sight picture more so than what you get with a flash suppressor/hider? Any preferred...

    300 Norma Mag

    Verified dope at 830, 940, 1497 & 1600 yards today. Either my barrel is still speeding up (which is possible as it's only at 65 rds after today) or the AB custom curve is slightly off but I was 0.2-0.3 high at 1600. Consistent hits at 1600 (24" plate) once I sorted that out. Unlike with my 6s...

    300 Norma Mag

    I've settled on a load for now, will see what happens once the barrel speeds up and with once fired brass. Started on a clean barrel, interestingly there was not the usual slower 1st round I usually experience in different calibers and barrels. Tested 10 rounds (2x 3rd groups, 1x 4rd group) at...
