    WTB Winchester pre64 win 70 action

    I am having a rifle built on that action. And own an SPR in 308. I'd be interested in that action you know of for a future build .

    SOLD: McMillan A4 for FN / Winchester Model 70

    Was your SPR actually mounted in this stock? I've the same action, barreled and wondering if your stock would enable me to 'drop-in' my action, without any inletting. TIA, lg

    VihtaVuori N555 Now in stock, Lets get some data!

    Wow! Thanx for the headsup on the Berger TH 140s being on sale at Brownells. Just ordered some. Most places have been out of stock on it for months. Usually buy it from Target Sports. 200 rds at a time. Brownell's price was 2 bucks a box cheaper! Whoopie !! lg

    Thunder Beast lead times...

    Just asking. I and my shooting partner have started discussing getting suppressors. Old ears getting older. TBAC's seem to be the most often recommended in threads and is being favored by us, regardless of wait times. Which brings me to my question- In this thread it seems like the main...

    wanting a "nice" bolt gun

    I think it is a good option, in that the components are good. But, have you priced other actions like Bat or Kelby? Other barrels (chambered or not) from Bartlein or Kreiger? And I've seen McMillan stocks for less money. There are other trigger options as well such as Jewel. You might be...

    Bubble level for ZCO

    US Optics rail mount is one I use. Folds out of the way. Caldwell makes a rail mount folder for a lot less. Warne scope mount is another good bubble level. It slides closed when not in use. Both, USO and W, are a little spendee but worth it. Have Spuhr's 4000 series rings...

    FOUND spotting scope. Mil reticle

    FWIW, check out Bushnell's Legend or Forge (forget which one) as it has a mil reticle and brand new is around $400. A shooting friend owns one and it is awesome for the money. I own a Leupold Mk 4 TMR 20-60 x 80 btw. Hard to see much difference between the two at 900 yds. Good luck.

    Re-barreled my RPR 6.5 Creed

    How much muscle did you need to break the bbl nut loose? I've read that that can be a b**** to get done.

    Hi lash, I think I (finally) 'got it'. And see what you two are talking about and agree. (Y) :)

    47guy, where did you get that? A cut from a barrel?

    Chamfer and Debur even if I am not trimming?

    Hi lash, and a reason why I said 'probably' (allowing that I could be totally wrong) and agree it's a perception thing. I dug out three of my Lapua brass, the brass that I did not need to trim. I can see a shine on the outside caused by the chamfering cut and a shine on the inside caused by...

    Using Short Brass in 6.5CM

    Good question Mainer. My chambers are SAAMI spec. I go by the published spec in Hornady's 10th Ed. (6.5CM) 1.920 is max, and I try to not trim any more than necessary, so I have ended up with two trim lengths. 1.918 and 1.916. This is a mix of mostly Hornady and some Federal, Win, Nosler...

    Chamfer and Debur even if I am not trimming?

    Perhaps so, but in my experience not measurably. At least with my calipers and skill using them (or lack thereof). When I do trim I trim to 1.916 and other cases to 1.918 and then C/D and after C/D I am still at 1.916 or 1.918. I am using the hand held Lyman (orange) tool with the...

    Using Short Brass in 6.5CM

    I recently bought a few boxes of Berger 140 gn Target Hybrid. 6.5CM. This cartridge is manufactured using Lapua SRP brass. And when I went to reload the brass it measured 1.900". Some were longer but none were 1.910" That is 0.010" under 'trim length' : 1.910" per Hornady's manual. I...
