    Wider Front Rest for Caldwell Rock/ DFT Lead Sled

    I have gotten accustomed to using a Caldwell Lead Sled DFT for use in load testing. I don't want to debate the merits of doing this, and have found that the commonality with the Rock rest (which I was familiar with already) and the repeatability has helped me a lot in load development. A...

    Rifle Scopes Anyone using the NF 2.5-10x32 NXS compact?

    My experience is limited, but I will chime in as no one else has. I have a NF 3-15 that I run on an LMT MWS. I recently took a class where the student next to me was using a NF 2.5-10 on a MK12. There are definite compromises made with the 2.5-10, but I still really liked the optic. It is not...

    Rifle Scopes SWFA SS 1-6HD? Do you like yours?

    I am in agreement with others that the reticle is not good. The hash marks are too close and thick at 6x for you to be able to take an accurate shot without obscuring most of the target with the reticle's hashes. I thought that it would be excellent looking at it on paper, but in actuality I...

    Rifle Scopes SWFA-SS Tax Day Group Buy: 1-6, 5-20, and more!

    I received my 1-6 today. I ordered by phone so there was no confirmation or notice given. It was just a pleasant surprise today at my office. Overall, looks like a great scope, and I have an ADM mount on the way from Primary Arms. My initial impression is that this is going to be a really nice...

    Load Data for 30 cal armor piercing bullets

    I've used 45gr of CFE223 with fairly good success. I unfortunately can't contribute anything related to 8208.

    REQUEST: Load data for 308, subsonic, 220 Sierra SMK, Titegroup Powder

    I posted this a week ago in the general reloading forum and have gotten no response, so I will cross post here and see what I get. All, While waiting on my forms to clear, it looks like I'm going to have the opportunity to shoot some cans (including mine) with a C3 dealer. Its probably...

    50BMG powder in 300RUM?

    The powder is too slow and will not burn in even a 30" barrel. With that being said, you can still use it to load some cheap (and sometimes accurate as noted above) rounds. It won't give retumbo velocity, but it will also be easy on brass. Hard to KB a rifle with powder that slow also.

    first time issue

    I just skimmed over the other responses but, given that this is LC (presumably .MIL) brass, is your die a "small base die." I have found these to be necessary in the past with certain weapons and brass of unknown origin.

    Rifle Scopes SWFA-SS Tax Day Group Buy: 1-6, 5-20, and more!

    I ordered on the last day. Still waiting. The rifle its going on is coming back from the smith in the next 10 days, so hopefully the timing will work out well.

    Want to duplicated FGMM 175 SMK's

    As noted above, factory specs call for 4064 or RL15. As what I would consider a better alternative, however, I would suggest 42.3 8208. Note that this is a max load and should be worked up to. .5-.8 MOA in my KAC SR25 (which was designed to shoot 118lr).

    Alliant Reloder Powder just came into Powder Valley

    Everything good but AR Comp 8lb currently in stock. Very tempted to try some 2000-mr.

    REQUEST: Load data for 308, subsonic, 220 Sierra SMK, Titegroup Powder

    All, While waiting on my forms to clear, it looks like I'm going to have the opportunity to shoot some cans (including mine) with a C3 dealer. Its probably going to be to try to get me to pick up another can, but that's fine as I am looking at a few (apparently, I've been bitten by the stamp...

    Rifle Scopes Acog yes or no?

    I use a TA11 on one of my rigs. It uses the 308 reticle, which matches well with 77 grainers out of a 16" barrel.

    Very nice. You have some very good gear. What kind of targets were you engaging?
