    Ship Kit from Primal Finish Arrived!

    Got a package yesterday! This rifle left here in worse shape than any other rifle I own. It was a CMP rifle that showed up without a bolt, and the barrel showed up with tons of rust pitting when I received it. Wayne and I converted it into a repeater, and the PTG bolt was still in the white...

    What Level of Brass Consistency to Get Value Out of a Primal Rights CPS?

    Yup, if you're going for 5 thousandths crush, the numbers look good. You can use pocket uniforming tools to eliminate that center to edge pocket radius if it ever becomes an issue. (it likely won't)

    What Level of Brass Consistency to Get Value Out of a Primal Rights CPS?

    Measure the primer pocket depth. Measure the thickness of the primer from bottom of cup to top of anvil, then bottom of cup to top of cup. That will give you overall primer thickness as well as anvil protrusion. From there, you can ensure that the anvil is at least touching the bottom of the...

    Barrel tuner for rimfire elr?

    Lots of improvement to be had with a tuner, IF you are shooting small enough to begin with. Taking groups from the .3's and getting consistent .2's with not infrequent .1's is a very big improvement which can typically be seen with tuners. Tuners typically won't make a rifle shooting in the .5's...

    Seems a plausible explanation.

    Barrel tuner for rimfire elr?

    I believe so, as I've never had a rifle that shot well at all, that didn't shoot better with a tuner.

    Barrel tuner for rimfire elr?

    Remember not to cut off your nose to spite your face, however. In my experience, having a tuner is required for getting that 50yd performance the very best. The performance at 100, 200, and 300yds with that same tuner setting is almost always better than without a tuner.

    Barrel tuner for rimfire elr?

    Clearly, you must have some impressive and expansive test results to speak with such authority about it. Can you share that data?

    Barrel tuner for rimfire elr?

    It "might" be true, but I haven't found it to be true on rifles I've worked with as of this moment. Rather, I haven't found a tuner to be a detriment at distance. The main rimX I've been shooting which shoots consistently in the .2's or better at 50yds... can do this easily at 300yds with...

    NEW From Zermatt Arms - RimX Actions

    Wow. I’m deleting my original comments. I’ve used 6 different RimX actions with TT triggers. They work just fine.

    Lapua X-Act ammo

    If a rifle is only capable of .4's or .6's... then obviously it won't matter if you're shooting center-x or x-act. If you have a rifle that will shoot center-x in the .2's or .3's ... then there's almost definitely a benefit to be had by testing higher grades. Fewer flyers per box in the higher...

    Vudoo V-22 Rebarrel

    I run mostly 3groove benchmarks. Mine shoot fantastic in cold weather as evidenced by videos I put out on my original RimX.

    Lapua X-Act ammo

    The cool thing is with rimx's, voodoo's, benchrest rifles, and high end classics becoming more the norm... we're seeing an upswing in people's knowledge, finally. A lot of myths are being busted. If only some folks with ego's that outweigh their experience would remain silent at worst, and at...

    Lapua X-Act ammo

    It's awesome that you've done your own work and saw the truth of it yourself. Good job on that, sincerely. The sad part is, there are people that have significantly more experience than I that can validate what I'm saying, but wouldn't dream of posting here. They've learned their lesson and...

    Lapua X-Act ammo

    I would have thought it was a given that I was referencing LOT TESTED ammo of each... but I guess that requires clarification. If you do lot testing with all... you will usually not find the best lot of center X out shooting the best lot Midas+ and the best lot of midas+ will usually not out...

    Lapua X-Act ammo

    It's worth it, if it's worth it for you. Midas+ is better than centerX. X-act is better than Midas+. No amount of hand wringing will make that not true.
