    Boretech Chameleon gel

    Anybody use this stuff? It says that it gently polishes and is safe for all barrels. I don't want to lap my custom barrels with a product like lasso or JB polish. I'm not knocking anyone who does that but I know enough to know that I better not do that. I still have lots to learn. So what...

    Is it worth keeping a 308 around?

    I have several precision and hunting rifles and I never thought that I would be without a 308 Winchester in the safe. If you asked me 5 years ago if I would always have a 308 in the stable I would have answered you a resounding yes. However, like many of you I find myself shooting my 308 less...

    I have a few of the generation 1 HS Precision short action magazine systems on rifles.
