    Blast from the past

    Went through my dad's reloading equipment since he can't do it anymore and found these gems. Plus 2k large pistol primers. Has anyone tried pistol primers in bolt guns I don't have anything that shoots large pistol and would like to be able to use them

    Rifle Competition Events 1 mile match AAR

    Shot my 2nd ever 1 mile match put on by Accuracy Indiana up near Crane Naval Station. 92 round course of fire came in 35/77 and hit the mile target on the second shot. Went 4/10 at a mile and only zeroed one stage. If you're close they do it every year and hand out keychains to those who hit the...

    Short range trajectory validation

    Don't have access to anything close by beyond about 350 400 is pushing it. My idea is could I put a large sheet of paper up and measure out the mils on it and hold at a spot lower on the target and get my dope that way? Have a long range match coming up and doing a new load

    Suppressors First can

    So getting my first can with tax return this year. Will be used on 22, 223, 6.5 creed, 9mm and maybe 300blk if I ever decide to shoot it anymore. Debating between a Griffin Optimus, yhm r9 (not sure if it's okay on 6.5), or a liberty mystic x. Which would you go with? If it was in stock I'd get...

    Sample pack load development

    Trying to find a bullet my 6.5 likes since I got bit by the exploding 147s and it doesn't like the 120 gmx. I'm debating either the 129 or 142 ablr for critters and ran across sample packs. What would you all recommend doing on these? A ladder or 3 round ocw groups or something else?

    Rifle Scopes Eye cup

    I know the Russians have/ had them on the psop and such but had anyone tried using an eye cup on the ocular for shooting in like a competiton where the sun is in your face and you can't see through your optic.

    Truing velocity issues

    So went to my parents place the other day for some range time while I'm on call and figured I'd double check my dope. My chronograph was acting goofy last time I tried using it so I just sat a target out at 359 yards. Longest I can get without moving a bunch of old equipment. Shot this 5 shot...

    Frank's idea got me thinking

    Getting caught up with the podcast while working today and 237 got me wondering if the math would work out. So I went to JBM and plugged some numbers in. This is what I came up with for recoil don't think we can come up with a 375CHEYTAC that will recoil like that 6gt. To think I used to hate...

    308 178eldm problem

    I tried working a load up for my FLCP-SR for 178 eldm with 4064 and made them to the same size as my other rounds and they won't chamber without considerable force. Anyone else experience that with a stock savage barrel and the eldm bullets. I've resized some brass a fired case down farther...
