    Federal GMM AR Primers

    Re: Federal GMM AR Primers Sounds like a good deal there, got to give em a shot. I really like that powder, bullet, reloading die and other manufactures are offering items to help curtail some of the "issues" the AR platform has. 8 to 10 years ago, there was next to nothing offered, heck now...

    RL15 to Varget

    Re: RL15 to Varget I was an RL-15 fan, made the switch to Varget. Until I went to pick up another 8 pounder. The IMR rep was in there. And well he threw his pitch to me about the 8208 XBR. Of course I was like, yeah, yeah. Pushing your stuff onto me. So he gave me a free pound. So I held off...

    Federal GMM AR Primers

    Re: Federal GMM AR Primers Wow, AR and Match used together. Never thought I would see that! Yeah, I'd like to see how that works out. Maybe Federal came up with a softer primer that might be slightly recessed to eliminate the age old slam fire issue. Hell I still get em with CCI's. Hope it...

    Rifle Scopes Cabella's Hunting Scopes: EURO Line

    Re: Cabella's Hunting Scopes: EURO Line I had one a few years back, I also heard they were made by Meopta. And for the money it was a real nice piece of glass. Ended up trading the rifle with it on there. But I would not hesitate on ever getting another one.
