    Electronic powder dispenser

    I bought the Lyman GEN 5 Digital Powder System and have no regrets at all. haven't had any problems since day 1 and it weighs loads just as quick and precise as the RCBS CM. the only problem I have is I can't hear the beeper but that would be true for all models of electronic powder dispensing...

    Rifle Scopes Millet 6-25x56 VS SWFA Fixed 16

    I have the ss 16x scope, 2 millett trs-1's and 1millett lrs, the mil setting for my lrs is 12.5x. I believe them all to be very good quality scopes for the money and haven't had any problems with any of them. the millett lrs power ring took some use before it started to loosen up, brand new it...

    223 loads for long barrel

    I had been trying imr 4895 and it seems to be a good match for the 68grn hornady match. this was shot at 100 yds from my Savage varmint contour barrel (9 twist). since then I found some more varget and went back to it.

    Loading for first OCW test. Does this look right?

    I follow Dan Newberry's rules to the T. what I can see you have got it right. usually takes 24-30rnds or so. I like to load extra siters so I have some foulers, I clean my barrel after each set.

    Ladder test

    it doesn't sound like you followed this step exactly. if you did you would have fired shots of the same grainage all on one target, then the next target would have the same grainage + .5 grain and so forth for the remaining targets. I hope this makes sense as I am explaining it. 11. After you...

    Load development question. bullets

    for myself I start with 1 box of 100 to see if my rifle even likes it. then if it performs well or seems like a possible candidate for a good load I will buy the larger 250 or 500 box. that way you have all bullets from the same batch.

    Gunsmithing Need help from those who make their own pillars.

    I have bought pillars and made my own. I have found the best and cheapest to use is threaded "lamprod". you can get it from any hardware store or even tear apart an old lamp(not the wifes favorite). the threads help with the bonding between the stock and pillar and really works great. here's an...

    Gunsmithing Any recommendations for a gun vise?

    Re: Any recommendations for a gun vise? i wanted the Tipton "BestGun" vise but my brother got me the Lyman for my birthday and i'm happy with it. like all the least expensive models it is made mostly of plastic. you can lock your weapon in it securely and it can be rotated about 45* one way...
