    Autotrickler problem

    I am having a problem with my Autotrickler. I have had it for a couple years and last year I upgraded it to the Wifi connection. I have used it several times after the upgrade with no problems. I went to use it last night, after a few months of not using it, and when I tried to use it it...

    Frank on Just FN send it.

    1st off this was a awesome podcast from David and Frank. Lots a great info on this one. I really loved hearing about what Dr. Maurer was talking about. I really think Frank or even David need to have Dr. Maurer on their podcast and talk about the JFK shooting and the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting...

    Kestrel 5700 AB vs. Sig 2400ABS

    I am looking to get one or the other. I currently have a Swaro Rangefinder that works well for me. I was wondering if I would be better off spending the little extra and get the Sig or if the Kestrel would work better for me? This would not be for hunting. Just range and I would like to get...

    How long can sized brass sit before loading?

    I was wondering if it is ok to for sized brass to sit 6 months or a year before loading it? I remember reading that if it sits too long the neck can possible shrink on you. I don't know if it is possible. There are times when I get to cleaning and sizing brass but wait a while to load it...

    Rifle Scopes My $5 scope leveling tool.

    We all know that Franks way of leveling a scope with the feeler guages works great. But sometimes you can't use that method. If you have a 2 piece base, or if your scope doesn't have a flat spot on the bottom this wont work. So this is what I came up with. I went to my local Ace Hardware and...

    77/22 bolt knob

    I just got my 77/22 back from Mark over at Short Action Customs. What a great job he did!!! The knob looks and works great. It actually gives me a little more clearance from my scope. I had him coat the entire action in Cerakote. The gun is in 17HMR and has a VQ carbon fiber barrel and a VQ...

    10/22 trainer...

    I just put a order in for one of these stocks. Looks like it might make a good trainer for a 10/22. The stock looks a lot like a ACIS made out of wood. I read a few good reviews on this stock on rimfirecentral. I will post some pics and a review when I get it and put some rounds down range...
