    Seekins DBM and Accurate Mag WSM

    Accurate Mag's WSM mags will run fine in Glen's SA metal? Right? Any other ideas on a "low profile" setup for a hunting rig? Trying to keep stuff from hanging below the trigger guard.

    Rifle Scopes Leupold's TMOA as a Hunting Reticle?

    Is the TMOA "bold" enough in a non-illuminated unit to work well as a big game reticle in low light conditions? Considering a 4-24x52 VX-6.

    Gunsmithing Rifle Balance Question for a Norma Build

    I'm about to send all the parts for my 338 build off to Mr. Snyder. Like so often happens (at least to me), I changed my tune mid-stride and decided against 338 Edge and for 338 Norma. So I ordered a new bolt from PTG and thought I was all set. When I ordered this ABS/Proof barrel, I wanted a...

    Accuracy On the Cheap...a Work in Progress

    Several years ago, I, for some reason that I can't remember, bought an oddball barreled action off the internet. It was the oh-so-popular 7mm-08AI. It was a Krieger barrel, and the seller insisted that it had not been shot much at all, and it was smithed to a 700SA. I really do love lots of...

    Rifle Scopes Lightweight 338 Norma...What Scope?

    Waiting on my bolt to get here from PTG to send all the parts to Mr. Snyder for a LW 338 Norma build. Do you suppose my 4-16x50 Victory FL will hang in an 11 pound setup pushing 300s? Or should I eat my budget and buy a PMII or a K312?

    Lets talk about protruding discs

    I'm an otherwise healthy 40 year old with a moderate protusion of the L4 L5 disc. Real common injury. Mine involved trying to pull a big whitetail onto the bed of a golf cart. Brilliant.... The doctor and PTs that I've used insist that I should never, ever, ever, ever squat or deadlift again...

    Help with inlet identification, please.

    I have purchased a strange bird indeed. This is a McM Pre-64 Monte Carlo inletted for a Remington 700 long action. But it is not inletted for Remmy bottom metal. I spoke with Heather at McM, and she suggested that someone might have been going for a M40-A1-ish build and inletted for the...

    Rifle Scopes Ring lapping question

    In an effort to show my ignorance, I ask the following... I use lots of Warne rings and Talley rings and I have never lapped them. Warne instructions suggest that you not lap and I am not sure about Talley. I have never had trouble with ring marks or scope movement either. This has been true of...

    AI-3 Contour

    Would a #5 contour barrel look too small in a McM A1-3. I have two flattops in this stock and I am trying to decide on builds and would like to keep the weight of a 7mm-338Lapua down to something below ten pounds.

    My 2nd Attempt at Camo Painting

    This .223 is a little truck-gun project that was put together from parts laying around. Hust, does this barrel look familiar? Anyway, I had an action from who-knows-where and a HS Precision LTR stock that was left orphaned after I upraded the stock on a 308. This go around I used a few more...
