    22lr bc value

    I'm using Ballistic AE, along with their published BC and trueing the velocity at roughly 100yds. So far, the output has been very good inside 200. It's when I get past there, that the app and impacts are nowhere close to being the same. Is that potentially due to a large reduction in BC at...

    Rifle Scopes Bushnell LRHSi successor?

    Since the LRHSi is discontinued, do they have a premium hunting scope lined up to take it's place? I know the LRTSi is really close with the exception of the reticle and exposed windage (both things that made me want the LRHSi). Hopefully they weren't counting on the forge to take it's place?

    As I was looking into piecing together my next rifle, I just learned about something called an Excise Tax. I always found it odd that I could go to a gunsmith's website, pick out the stock, barrel, action, trigger, etc, as well as his advertised rates to chamber, bed, etc, and always come up a...

    Gunsmithing m700 / dbm feeding issue

    I've got a feeding issue in my 700sa in 243win. The stock is a greybull precision (made by B&C), seekins dbm, magpul 700 5rd mag. When everything is bolted together, the round's rim sits too low and the bolt won't catch it, but the tip of the bullet looks to be very high. Is the remedy to mill...

    Rifle Scopes The next big thing???

    Granted, I haven't been on the forums like I used to be in a long time, but I'm seeing a big shift in optics over the past year. I'm not currently in the market for a new scope but I do enjoy researching and whatnot around new glass. That being said, the biggest changes I'm interested in are the...

    When I was reloading and shooting a lot, I had a sweet 6.5x47 built because I was reloading. Now that I'm not reloading but want to shoot factory ammo, I want to switch out to a Creedmoor. My question is this- Can the barrel be rechambered to a 6.5 Creed without having to cut the barrel lenght?
