    New Barrel for Tikka T3 - .223 AI ?

    My little Tikka T3 Lite has the OEM .223 barrel with a 1-10" twist that I threaded the barrel 1/2-28 and put into a KRG Bravo stock. Obviously, this limits the barrel in stabilizing heavy projectiles, how fast the barrel heats up and stiffness of the barrel when using a suppressor (POI Shift)...

    Meat Grinder Recommendation ?

    It's time that I upgrade my game processing equipment and buy a meat grinder for the deer and antelope that I've been hunting lately. I have a couple of bags of trimmings, etc. that need to be ground for hamburger or sausage and while I could take them somewhere I'd rather do it at home. Budget...

    This Old Rifle.

    I have an opportunity next season to hunt Red Deer ( European cousin to North American Elk ) that get to be in the 500 lbs. range. This last season I shot a small one that weighed 220 lbs with a 140 ballistic tip in a 6.5 Creedmoor at 220 yards. The bullet was effective but the animal didn't go...

    Threading the Muzzle on 30/06 Sporter Barrel

    I have an old 30/06 Remington 700 sporter weight barrel that I would like to thread for a suppressor. I want say that the muzzle OD is around .600" but I'll have to double check. Is 9/16-24 the best option ?

    Leica Ballistic Tool website issues ?

    I was trying to generate a “ drop.hex “ file for my new 2700B LRF, and the online tool is being uncooperative . Is it just me or are other people having issues ? Win 10 with Chrome browser so it shouldn’t be an “old computer” issue.

    Mag Loader for AICS Mags - UPDATED

    I have a few MDT mags and the location of the feed lips vs. the shoulder on a 6.5 CM cartridge conspire to make loading mags to capacity difficult. The shoulder is behind the front edge of the feed lips so you can't use the next cartridge to press the loaded cartridge down to slip it into the...

    KRG Bravo vs. X-Ray Chassis for Tikka T3 ?

    I have a Tikka T3 CTR that needs a chassis. Rifle currently has a KRG Midas trigger but is in the factory stock. It’s ok, but it doesn’t fit me that well, so it’s time to make a change. I’d wait until the Precision Rifle Expo and try the various chassis out, but I don’t want to wait all...

    30mm Scope Mount for AR15 Carbine

    I have an M-4gery that I had an Eotech on and decided to upgrade to a low power variable scope. I bought a Burris MTAC 1-4X24 but the glass is not very good and it looks like it has a booger next to the reticle. It came with a PEPER Mount, so it was ready to install and bore sight. One of the...

    First Lathe Project

    I recently inherited my uncles South Bend 9A 48" lathe and moved to the house from his place in Central Alabama. Since the lathe isn't terribly heavy the moving process was pretty easy compared to what it could have been. It was pretty manky, but a little bit of time cleaning out the chips and...

    Ruger 10/22 Stock and Bedding ?

    I have a Ruger 10/22 stainless rifle from about 2001 that has one the “Sporter” wood stock with checkering. It’s a decent looking rifle and a little classier looking than your run-of-the-mill blued carbine. I shot it yesterday and found that there were a several failure to extracts and light...
