    Eberlestock X1 Euro vs X31/41

    Hi all. I've been through all the recent PRS pack threads and it seems like the X31 Lo Drag is a very popular option. I'm wondering if anyone here has used the X1 Euro pack, it looks very similar maybe just a little smaller footprint and less weight yet slight more capacity and cheaper. I'm...

    Starting seating depth

    I'm about to start load development for a new 6.5CM and have been scrolling through a lot of threads about the different loads guys are using. One thing I've noticed is a pretty big proportion of guys loads are seated .020" off the lands regardless of bullet used and in some case regardless of...

    Tikka T1x re-barrel worth it?

    There has been a few threads and different posts since the introduction of the T1x about re-barreling, seems like there are a few companies now offering prefit barrels. Leaving out any difficulties in removing the old barrel, how have folk been finding the new barrels? Have you found the...

    Questions on switching scope between rifles: Repeatable rings, Razor G2

    Long story short I have multiple rifles, some that see a lot of use and others that don't and would like too play musical scopes on a frequent basis. I've tested my current scopes with Burris XTR rings and and seeing them very repeatable in vertical but horizontally I'm getting up to 2mils...

    AI Arctic Warfare Suppressor

    Simple question. Can anyone fill me in on what would be considered a "genuine" suppressor for a 2008 308 AIAW, if there was such a thing. Did AI have a single/select manufactures of suppressors that work with the factory muzzle brake or was it like any other rifle and buyers sourced their own...

    Accuracy International models explained

    I've always dreamed of buying an Accuracy International with the old thumbhole stock and the opportunity has arisen for me to purchase (well bid upon) a folding stock AW in 308. This has lead me to again research the different models of AI rifles and I think I finally have the models all worked...

    Burris XTR3 and Race dial feedback/reviews?

    Now that the XTR3 has been in the wild for a good few months now I'm surprised at the lack of reviews/thoughts on the new scope. I'm well aware that there is a huge thread on here but am hoping to hear feedback from folk other just Dtros and Birddog (no disrespect implied). Really wanting to...

    Sterk swept bolt handle; review and speed test

    Ever since I first saw the Sterk swept bolt handles for the Tikka T3 I knew I had to get one, I'm a firm believer in the saying; "if you can't be the part, at least look the part", there's no doubt that the Swept handles look cool but I've always wondered do they give a functional improvement...

    Short (ish) barrel 260 powder options

    I have a Tikka T3 in 260rem that wears the factory lite 22.375" barrel, which I run suppressed. The rifle is a nice overall length unsuppressed, but a bit unwieldy with the suppressor on so I'm going to chop the barrel to 18-20", probably go 19". I current use ADI 2209 (H4350) with 140gr...

    Just how bad is the Mark 6 M5B2?

    My local buy sell (not US based) has been having a few Mark 6s pop up lately at pretty good prices. I like the specs on the Mark 6, but I've heard mixed (mostly bad) reports on the M5C2 model but when it comes to the B2 I've not heard a single good thing about them. Is it all Internet hearsay...

    Shout out and recommendation for Talley rings

    I've used Talley lightweight rings for quite a few years now and always found them to be excellent, especially considering there weight. But back when I was a ham fist I managed to stripped a screw that mounted the base to the rifle, I'd always had a spare 1" set of rings so it wasn't an issue...

    Tikka CTR 260Rem Magazine length question

    Hi all, Wanting to hear from folk with a Tikka CTR in 260Rem whether they are able to seat long bullets into the lands of the rifling whilst still feeding from the magazine? I understand that the Creedmoor can still fit in the magazine and have the bullet seated out, but I haven't heard whether...
