    Range Report 77smk as sd round

    In general it takes about 2400-2600 fps to get a projectile to cause cavitation which is what causes massive internal organ damage. Your 2200ish muzzle velocity puts you below that already. Your stated goal of 200-300 yards will be far below that. If you don't want the expense of buying...

    Rifle Scopes New Leupold Reticle

    In the off chance Leupold pays attention to these threads, I'll put in my two cents that I also hope they get the PR2 reticle illuminated and into the 3.6‐18 Mk5 soon. I have two precision ARs that this scope and reticle combo would be perfect for. I've held off for far too long because I...

    Night Vision L3Harris BNVD (1531) Now Available for Commercial Sale at TNVC!

    This was our experience as well. We rarely ran the lithiums in our devices as some units would not work with them. We usually saw around 3-4 hours of single-battery use with conventional batteries. The military also gets cheap batteries so maybe name-brand would do a little better.

    Night Vision L3Harris BNVD (1531) Now Available for Commercial Sale at TNVC!

    Sure, go ahead. It is new and won't be released for about another 9 months for purchase but tell me all about how you have owned several of them for years.

    Night Vision L3Harris BNVD (1531) Now Available for Commercial Sale at TNVC!

    You may get "16 hours" with a single AA battery with the unit turned on but I'd bet that is under ideal conditions with the tube brightness so low that the NVG is useless. Field experience has shown me that single battery use is consistently short-lived, but go ahead and tell me your...

    Night Vision L3Harris BNVD (1531) Now Available for Commercial Sale at TNVC!

    You better hope the battery packs become available. Not only for the counterbalance they offer but because they drain a single battery quite quickly.

    The PVS-31 was my favorite NVG to use while I was in. Hopefully I'll manage to get a set of these before long.

    Help! Trouble shooting with my kiddos 🥴

    My son is also right hand, left eye dominant so I'll be going through this soon. I already got a good taste of it when we did some archery. If you think dealing with cross-dominant shooting is awkward, give that a whirl...

    Damn. Well I appreciate your input. You would be one of the people likely to know.

    Rifle Scopes SHOT Show canceled: what new scopes are there?

    So since SHOT Show got canceled, has anyone heard anything about new scopes being released? I'm hoping manufacturers will go ahead let us know what they have coming early instead of trying to keep things a secret until the show date. Anyone have any info to share? I've been holding out for...

    You are not listening and it’s costing you

    I've bought and sold stuff on this site for many years now although I don't see the PX as the primary purpose of this site. There are several good ideas on how to make the Hide less appealing to scammers and I think that is worth pursuing. We have developed a network of enthusiasts here that...

    Rifle Scopes A very basic question regarding mirage and backing off magnification

    Maybe the best way to put it is that zooming out when there is heavy mirage simply allows the shooter to ignore the mirage and take the shot with less distraction. Using less magnification, you not only see less mirage but you see your target shifting around less due to distortion. This...

    Night Vision PVS 14 and IR for Night Hunting

    There is a good sticky at the top of this sub forum to help you with PVS-14 selection. Cheaper is definitely not better. I personally find the white phosphorus tubes much easier to see items through (might be the greater contrast but I'm not sure) while also causing less eye strain than the...

    Advanced Marksmanship Talk to me about terminal ballistics between 6.5 creedmoor and 7.62 nato

    The PRCs are definitely in a whole other league performance-wise but also require different bolt faces than the standard bolt face the 6.5 CM and .308 and therefore don't work in as many applications. However, they are newcomers and we will see if they last or fizzle out like the WSMs, SAUMs...

    Advanced Marksmanship Talk to me about terminal ballistics between 6.5 creedmoor and 7.62 nato

    I come from a similar background as you, Tarheel (5th SFG for the win). I have also been pretty impressed by the terminal ballistics of the M118LR projectile which is just a 175 gr. Sierra March King. Considering it is designed for accuracy and BC; not terminal performance, it does rather...

    Night Vision PVS 14 and IR for Night Hunting

    Does Kosher Surplus have a storefront in the Houston area? I just moved to the area a few months ago and had never heard of them. If you guys want to get together sometime and shoot something, let me know. I'm about to get another toy up and running soon on store-bought ammo since I don't...

    Night Vision PVS 14 and IR for Night Hunting

    If you are planning to use a SCAR-H, I would definitely recommend mounting the NVGs to a helmet rather than the rifle. Helmet mount is common so you aren't pointing the rifle at everything you want to look at anyways. Also, check out this thread that addresses mounting optics and lasers to...

    Night Vision PVS 14 and IR for Night Hunting

    Agreed that about 150-200 yards is about the best you can get as far as consistent hits with the laser. Bullet drop, laser bloom, dispersion, and mounting variance all become problems on top of the nature of your target being obscured and moving.
