    Spotters Ball Head

    I’m currently using a cheap pistol grip to run my spotter off of. I’m looking to upgrade. I have an 0311 tripod from Shadow Tech and an MK4. I’m not interested in changing tripods in the work whip where this is carried. I have to buy it, and anything that is destroyed or lost is on my dime, so...

    Tripod head for spotting scope

    I’m looking for something on the better side for a tripod head to use with a spotting scope. I’ve seen recommendations for a geared head, but I tend to spot and move down the line to the next shooter, so I’m wondering if a geared head will prove to to slow to correct. If I do look at geared...

    Nascar 2019

    I’ve been a racing fan since birth. I’m not seeing how NASCAR is getting the speedway cars right. This is simply disturbing.

    I have two AR platform rifles and both 34 and 35 mm scopes to mount. I’m looking for maybe more than an ADM cantilever but not sure I want to pay SPUR prices. What are my options?

    Rifle Scopes NF ATACR 4-16 vs Leupold MK5 3.6-18

    I’m scoping an 308 AR with the thought of using it for mid range work. Say 100 to 700 yards. In looking at scopes I’m somewhat drawn to a 3-5 power on the bottom and 15-20 give or take on the top end. In this it brings me to compare these two scopes. I’m thinking of trying the Tremor 3...

    Power Supply / Conditioners / UPS

    With more and more electronics on my reloading bench, especially with expensive scales, what do people recommend for power supply? I’ve used a simple power strip but am adding an auto trickler with an AnD scale next, thinking something to condition power would help. Anyone know much about this...

    Tripod twist vs cam lock leg locks

    I've always used cheap tripods and they tended to feature cam locks on the leg extensions. I've used a Silk with the twist locks and generally found them to be a pain. I see the newest offering from Shadow Tech offeres cam locks, but both RRS and Fiesol seem to have twist locks. Whats the pro...

    How long do stored primers last?

    While I've only been reloading a few years, I don't think I've seen this discussed. While reading the current issue of SWAT magazine, a sidebar in an article makes the claim that factory ammo will keep for decades, but the same cannot be said for exposed or even properly stored primers-the...

    77 SMK trial loads

    I'm just getting ready to load some 77 SMK's for a 20in 1/9 twist bolt gun. I know the 77 may or may not like the 1/9 but I want to find out for sure. I have various cases and a few powders but I'm pondering using either a few hundred PMC or Federal cases and RE15. I know there's lots of...

    Rifle Scopes FFP dual purpose scope suggestions

    I'm setting up a .223 bolt gun for use as both a sub 500 yard precision rifle, think tactical stuff and for use on varmints at night, think coyotes who are getting a bit closer than I like. This needs a budget of say $750 +/- a bit. I'm used to FFP, MIL/MIL and would prefer to keep this one...

    Primer Flow and load question?

    I have two Remington's and noticed this put of the 20in gun. See pic. 20inch gun on the left, 24inch on the right. Doesn't matter if it's my reloads or factory FGMM. It does this with everything that's been through it. Question two. We shot both of them, a 24in 5r and a 20in 5r for groups...
